I started practicing yoga in my early teens. Initially at a doctor’s suggestion following years of surgery, braces and therapy for a congenital spinal trauma. I didn’t really care for it at first, to be honest! But the results were immediate. It relieved pressure and pain from my back and legs and I instantly began to feel stronger. For most of my twenties I had a love/hate relationship with my yoga practice. But it’s something I have consistently gone back to again and again and has become a central core aspect of my life.
My training has included traditional Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga and various kinds of Restorative, PreNatal and Meditation training. A few years ago I completed my Yoga Therapist certification as well which has greatly enriched my life and my practice. I try to keep my classes creative and fun. I don’t teach the same way, every day, for every class or every person.
All of my training has been very traditional. So my philosophy is about respecting the needs of each individual. Sure, yoga can be challenging. But laughter and light heartedness are just as important, in my opinion, as perfecting your Downward Dog.
"Thank You for Your Support Heather"
“Heather offers a warm and inviting space to practice yoga and feel the healing energy of her classes. Like so many of us who go through difficult times, her voice and her sequences were my lifeline. I relied on it for my physical and mental wellbeing. I consistently left her classes feeling hopeful, fully alive, and more present, not to mention more limber. As a result, I kept going back for more. I wish I could articulate how important you and your classes were in my life.” – JT
"Heather is My Favourite Yoga Teacher."
“Because she is real. There is no ‘show’, no pretense with her. She shows me how to live my life in a better way. She teaches these ancient wisdoms but makes them totally applicable to our modern lives. I swear, if everyone could feel how I feel after yoga with Heather, the world would transform for the better.” – CJ
"Like Hitting a Reset Button . . ."
“Classes with Heather have been a refuge for me. When the pandemic began, even more so. Yoga with Heather has been a break from the chaos of life – a chance to take an hour or so to myself, to breathe and be in stillness. After each class, I feel like I’ve hit a reset button and I feel ready to take on whatever else the day throws my way.” – SH
"For Over 15 Years . . ."
. . . I have been participating in Heather’s classes. The foundation that I developed with her assistance allows me to continue practicing on my own. When I need more and when my schedule allows, I still attend her classes (virtually or in person)!” – Jen
"When I think of Yoga . . ."
. . . I think of Heather Jones. Nothing compares to Heather’s teaching. It’s hard to put into words what I experience. There’s an electricity that you can actually feel – especially if I get to practice in person with her. I always leave the class feeling so much better, and that feeling stays with me for a long time. What she does/says and who she is, is just . . . divine.” – TS
To say that I have a passion for this work is an understatement. To this day I have not found anything as satisfying or as exciting as assisting people in uncovering their own strength and helping them to accept their own resiliency. We all have innate healing capabilities. Sometimes it’s just a matter of remembering that; and giving the body what it needs to function optimally.
I’m always fascinated, and truly inspired, watching people transform! I’ve seen some remarkable things over the years… but most notably is the look on someone’s face, and the change in their body, when they begin to realize they are SO MUCH MORE than they’ve been giving themselves credit for! Yoga is truly amazing because there really is no end to the journey. It morphs and changes with us. And just when you think you’ve figured it all out – in comes a new challenge and a new awareness. It really is amazing!
“Yoga has helped me through the most difficult and devastating times as well as the most joyous and happy ones. I know firsthand the power of the practice and am honoured to share it with others. Whatever your reason may be for coming to the mat; perhaps dealing with the stress of work, the challenges of being a new mom, preparing for birth our suffering a loss or pain; my intention for my classes is to offer a supportive practice that empowers each individual. As a busy mom with two boys (3 if you count my husband) I have found nothing more valuable than my yoga and meditation practice. Since 2006 I have enjoyed teaching yoga to children, adults, and seniors. I truly believe you are never to old or to young for yoga and have been blessed since my first born to be teaching Prenatal and Mom and Baby Yoga classes. My classes are a blend of Hatha, Kundalini and Vinyasa yoga.
Way back in the day (2002!!!) I began seriously attending yoga with Heather Jones. No amount of courses and trainings can compare to the knowledge and experience I have gained from my apprenticeship with her in those early days. A true mentor; Heather’s confidence in me and my ability to teach was greater than my own. Her encouragement gave me the confidence to begin teaching my own classes. For that I am eternally grateful.”
