Certified Yoga Instructor
Hometown: Fort McMurray, AB
Heather O’Neill stumbled upon a hot yoga class five years ago and was intrigued. The sweat, the air, the energy, the flow. All of it was a much needed relief from day to day stressors. In finding yoga, she found the ability to meditate, to embrace the body for both tough physical fitness as well as working on tapping into the simplicity of the present moment in her mind. She began to find what she believes is the true balance of life. Physical exertion with a still mind. The deeper the practice the more balanced the outcome. And eventually, you begin taking your mat practice out of the studio and bringing it into your day to day life.
Becoming a yoga teacher was a natural path in Heather’s journey and she enjoys creating dynamic classes for studios and workshops wherever she goes. Heather is RYT200 certified with Ananda Yoga Studios located in the Greater Toronto Area and has additionally completed workshops run by Sadie Nardini of “Core Strength Vinyasa Yoga” . She is the Head Doula at Higher Health Clinic and the founder of “Yoga Doula”.
Heather completed her prenatal yoga training through Dorothy Guerra’s “Yoga Birth Method” program of Streetsville, Ontario. She loves deepening her knowledge for yoga and expanding her practice through highly choreographed visits to the mat. Join her on the mat weekly for challenging hot hatha, soothing warm mellow flow or meditative and gentle prenatal yoga.
