About Heather . . .

Heather Sandy discovered yoga during her time at UIUC, and has been practicing ever since. Convinced that yoga is for everyone, Heather designs classes that meet her students where they are. Accessible and motivating, Heather’s classes present an opportunity to develop strength and mobility while cultivating a sense of calm and a focus on the here-and-now. As a lifelong learner, Heather is always seeking continuing education opportunities in order to bring the latest in research-backed approaches to yoga and movement science to her students. To cultivate her own practice while combining her enthusiasm for all things French-language, Heather loves to take yoga classes in French when traveling – for example, she’s practiced in Montreal, Lille, and Lyon!
