Heather has been practicing yoga for over 14 years, rolling out her mat in yoga studios all over the globe. Founder and Creator of Starr Light Yoga & South Therapy as well as Founder and Director of the South West Yoga Fest, Heather was first introduced to Yoga in 2007 in Montreal, Canada, her home and native land. After achieving a diverse educational background with degrees in Social Science, Political Science and Public Relations Management, Heather broke away from the 9-5 office job life, and moved to the breathtaking islands of the Bahamas. She began to practice yoga regularly under Elaine Kerry, and studied the Foundations of Yoga and decided to venture off and complete her 200 Hour Yoga Alliance Teacher Training in Costa Rica with the Marianne Wells Yoga School in 2009.
After completing her training in Costa Rica, Heather headed for a new life in Australia. Following some extensive travelling around the lucky country, with her Aussie husband, and bringing two beautiful daughters into the world.
Heather began teaching weekly yoga classes in Dunsborough in January 2014. In order to continue her evolution of understanding and help compliment our Yang lifestyles and vigorous Vinyasa practices, Heather completed her level 1 Healing Art of Yin Yoga Teacher Training in July 2018 and has since grown a huge passion for Yin Yoga, and the anatomy and philosophy behind the practice. With her passion for Yin growing, Heather moved forward and completed level 2 Healing Art of Yin Yoga Teacher Training in April 2019. Both trainings were with Danielle Mercer at the Spanda School in Fremantle.
Heather also completed her SUP Yoga Certification with the RIP Curl School of surf in Bali, Indonesia in November 2019 and offers SUP Yoga classes at Meelup Beach over summer.
Heather most recently completed Level 1 & 2 Peter Hess® Sound Massage course in Fremantle and is now offering South Therapy as well as Yoga and Meditation classes.
Heather's style has evolved over the years and blends Hatha with Vinyasa and Yin in many of her classes to make for a gentle restorative class. Her classes combine the Asanas (physical postures), Meditation and Pranayama (breath work). Heather aims to bring peace, light, and energy into her students practice, and provide a complete balance for the mind, body and soul for yogis of all ages.
Heather will be opening a Yoga Studio from her home in Quindalup in April/May 2021. Stay tuned for more details.
Currently Heather is teaching at the Dunsborough Gym, and private lessons at Yallingup Lodge, and with the Holistic Hen at the Regency Beach Club. Heather offers Floating SUP Yoga classes at Meelup Beach for private groups of 6 or more, and will be once again offering international yoga retreats in Indonesia and Bahamas once travel restrictions are eased.
