A devoted Yogi and 200hr RYT through Rising Lotus, Heather discovered barre through her friend Laura and was certified at Bella Barre in 2015. She had always been curious about barre, since a barre studio neighbored her yoga studio. She noticed the women who came and went always seemed vibrant and confident. Heather took her first barre class weeks before she was due with her second son and fell in love immediately. She knew it was just what she needed, and immersed herself completely weeks after giving birth. Heather describes barre as the yang to her yin, and says her life would be much less energetic without it. She has a deep love for her students, and views the Bella Barre community as empowering, uplifting and magnetic. Her love for her students transpires into her classes, which are emotionally driven and encourage a balance of strength and flexibility, both in body and in mind.When she's not practicing barre or yoga, you can find Heather biking, playing, or just making messes with her boys. Heather believes that life is a practice, and each day brings new opportunity... and when in doubt, coffee, pink lipstick, or a good song can make any day a good day!
