Yoga, a physical and energetic practice that helps us to connect movement and breath within our bodies in a way that allows us to find our authentic self and shine even brighter. Heidi fell in love with this powerful practice for both the physical and energetic magic that quickly became apparent as she found her first mat in Boston, MA. Growing up in a unique island community she was always athletic whether it be as a lobsertman, lawn mower, or as a collegiate rower and believes the practice just makes sense, it combined her loves for both movement and emotional healing.
Heidi grew up on Cliff Island, Portland Maine. She moved away, received her BSW from Syracuse University and MSW from BU and is a license independent clinical social worker. After practicing for a number of years she took her first 200 hour teacher training from Prana Power Yoga and second with the Sacred Seeds School of Yoga. She is certified to teach Trauma Sensitive Yoga through the Boston Trauma Center and feels it is important to lead students through a flow that encourages finding the balance of both the physical alignment and emotional transformation. Heidi is truly grateful for her yoga instructors including Seane Corn, Taylor and Philippe Wells, Jene Rose, Jacqui Bonwell, Jennifer Yarro, Ame Wren, and Danielle Toolan who have influenced her growth and teaching style.
Heidi moved back to Maine in 2007 and opened Greener Postures Yoga with her business partner, Danielle Toolan in 2010. For her, Greener Postures is truly a dream come true, it is an honor to help spread the light and love yoga brings to ones life. Heidi feels fortunate to be part of the yoga community in the Portland area and gratitude for all her teachers which not only include yoga instructors, but also her family, friends, and colleagues as she continues her journey of practicing and growing as a yoga teacher and business owner both on and off her mat!
