“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” ❤️ ~ Maya Angelou


“I have been taking Heather’s pre-natal class for nearly 5 months now and am just days to weeks from delivery. Thanks to the class, during a time when many women feel anxious, I feel strong and balanced, grounded and prepared, and I feel supported by a community of amazing mommas and soon-to-be-mommas. After being adjusted the other day, the chiropractor I was seeing had nothing but praise for how even and relaxed my body is, as well as for how good the baby’s positioning is. She needed to know where I was practicing yoga so she could recommend it. 🙂 Thank you, Heather!!”


Thanks so much for helping us on our yoga journey. It’s amazing how your words are so relevant to our situation. It’s almost like you know how our day went! We look forward to our classes with you. Peace, Love & Namaste.”


Your classes are so invigorating and creative! Thank you!”


“Your cueing in the BEST. I adore your flow classes because I can close my eyes and just be in my practice. I hope you teach a blindfolded class one day…they are so fun when the teacher has a cueing talent. Thanks for putting the “contentment” in Santosha today.” 😊


“I thought you might find it interesting that I finally found my back leg today in Warrior 1, and the ability to root the outer foot to translate it to my inner thigh drawing back and tail descending. It has only taken me 14 years!”


“Heather, it was your set of Nidra recordings that did it for me. I sleep so deeply now! I’ve unexpectedly been able to say goodbye to all meds!”


“A couple of weeks ago I took an Inspired Intentions yoga workshop at Studio Santosha. Our teacher, the beautiful @loveserveinspire, had us write three intentions down and put them in a prayer box she was going to pray over. I wrote down three intentions that are the ones I’m always working on — less anxiety, less anger (I am not an overly patient person, just sayin), more healthy living etc.. But, at the end of the meditation portion I was praying as we lay there quietly and this word came to me loud and clear. Acceptance. That’s not even a word I EVER use…probably because I’m a control freak. So it seemed so odd to me, yet I knew that’s what I needed to focus on going forward. It doesn’t mean you don’t strive to change or be a better you, BUT acceptance is a beautiful thing. Acceptance of others, yourself, God’s timing…all of it. So, thank you Heather for helping find my true intention for this year!” ❤️🙏🏻


“We went with some mommy friends to baby yoga at another studio in town and I just have to tell you it doesn’t even come close to your class and you!!! You are such an amazing instructor–we are so lucky to have met you!!


“Thank you Heather. I enjoy your blogs and read all of them. And you bring a sense of calm, radiating joy when you are in class that is inspiring.”


“You are a true Angel. Thank you so much. You filled my heart with love and affection. Your class is just what I needed to feel more grounded and tranquil, and the handouts are a true blessing.”


“It was my pleasure to attend your class. You have inspired me with Yoga and are such a gifted teacher and healer! Next time I’m in town I’ll check to see if you have a class. Once I relocate to this area, I’ll certainly become on of your students! Many blessings to you and thanks again for an awesome experience!”


“This is the first time someone created a yoga class themed just for me! It was perfect. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!”


When I’m in your classes I feel like I’m under a huge umbrella of compassion; when I leave, I want to share it with the world!”


“I have invited Heather to lead yoga sessions on retreats that I offer my clients, always to great effect. Many of them have also learned to release stress through her Yoga Nidra recordings. Highly recommended.


“Heather, I wanted you to know how powerful the walking meditation was last night! My experience was so intensely beautiful I have placed my card and words in my Bible! Thank you for all you do! Peace be with you!” 🙏🏻


“I was asked today, ‘what was my quantum moment?’ When I walked into Santosha for the first time. Never went anywhere by myself. Walked in and Heather was there. I went into the class of strangers. The energy felt warm and safe. I laid there, my first Yoga Nidra class, not knowing if I was doing anything right and judging myself, as we all do, and being told there is no right or wrong pose. That you honor your body just the way it is, not comparing myself to anyone else or how I think it should look or feel, and I believed for the first time that I was OK exactly as I was at exactly that moment. I believed it. Of course I’ve grown over the last two years. It’s hard work excepting yourself exactly the way you are. Good, bad, fat, older, grayed. But the thing is, once I learned and believed that I was OK just the way I am, then the world opened up for me and I could begin practicing excepting others exactly as they are, without needing to change anyone or try to control their happiness. Everyone, every soul has their own journey. I am an infant in my true life’s journey. I know everything is happening exactly as it should at exactly the right moment and all I have to do is let it. All I want to do is give love and be an example of what true love is. And in that I find my bliss, my joy, my Santosha.”


“You are just amazing. You saw the light in me when I didn’t even know what that meant. Your soul touches my heart in ways I never thought possible.”


“Thank you for your fun Pre & Post Natal Yoga classes. My baby and I enjoy coming every Monday…you are an amazing instructor!”


“Thank you so very much for sharing your love, talent and expertise with my students and me. It was truly an inspirational experience. I really appreciate you!”


“Thank you so much for teaching such a great class! I’m getting so much out of your classes. I love how your classes always have a theme. You are very inspirational.”


“A few months ago I started sending out to the Universe my intention to travel to Arizona. I just knew I had to go. I didn’t realize why, just that I had to go. For some reason, I thought it was Sedona that was pulling me. I knew something magical would happen. And your class was it…I am thankful for the lesson and for the release of old junk. I feel so spiritually centered and on the right path. Thank you again for your part in the journey to becoming whole again. Be blessed dear one.”


“Tonight my friend Mary and I attended a Yoga Nidra in Peoria, AZ. The space was warm and welcoming and the instructor radiated with love and knowledge. The class was 75 minutes in length and the majority was a meditation…My journey into my mind came in small bursts. Time creeped by and my thoughts rested in old hurts as our instructor Heather guided us. Tears welled in my eyes when I re-lived the most painful day of my life. Paul’s funeral. I heard the gunfire of the 21 gun salute by the river. I felt my body shake with emotions. Hurt. Pain. Fear. Loss. Loneliness. How could I ever live without him? As she guided us to move out of the emotion and feeling, I could feel myself being pulled back to the hurt. I wanted to feel that again. Honoring his memory, our marriage, it felt like the right thing to do. I realized that I can honor all of that without remaining broken. I no longer need to hurt or feel loss. I am again whole. I am restored. As we were guided through our minds, I realized that I have stayed broken long enough. Fear was not my friend. When we went into the round room and found the book with blank pages, I found parts of me in pause. I need to write. Writing shall be more of my healing. It’s time to finish that part of me. I needed the pause. I grew in the pause. I became again—to know me. The time is now. Thank you, Heather. Namaste.”


“Thank you for all the love and thoughtfulness in preparing the Partner Yoga Workshop. Everything was perfect, such a lovely day! Thank you for sharing your gifts of yoga and music!”


“I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for today’s class. That was exactly what I was looking for — a moderate paced class that would help me improve flexibilty and strength while exploring and learning to appreciate the changes in my body.”


“I received your thank you card in the mail today. Such a thoughtful surprise! Your yoga class was wonderful. It helped me release so much negative energy that day…


“THANK YOU for helping me feel stronger and more prepared to have this baby. So grateful for you!”


“I wanted to take a moment to say thank you for class last Saturday. Many of your readings resonated with me in a big way. Also, I don’t remember the words with which you ended the class, but at the time I was moved by them as well—it was a blessing for the day that was so touching to me. Thank you for shining your light into the path of my journey.”


“It’s been a pleasure participating in your classes as you truly embody the mind, body, and spirit in each of them. May the Universe continue to bless you with the same loving kindness you give to your students.”
