"We return ... and our consistent practice becomes a dedication to self-care that can brush away the tarnish of perceived imperfections."
Heather Kampf’s compassionate teaching style inspires her students to believe in themselves. She loves the combination of vinyasa flow blended with focused alignment that creates a moving meditation honoring the lineages of the Iyengar and Ashtanga systems. A devoted mother of two, Heather understands deeply that a yoga practice, including meditation and pranayama, will offer a steady source of strength that is beneficial on and off the mat. She offers these tools to empower her students, as she provides the space for them to move deeper into their own inner wisdom. Heather’s vision of cultivating inner connection as well as community infuses her teaching with an optimism that uplifts her students. She encourages students to daringly dance between exploring boundaries and appreciating the joy of the present moment.
Exploration of physical expression has been a life-long passion that started with dance and gymnastics and further developed while performing on stage. Ultimately, Heather found the most satisfying outlet to be her yoga practice --the practice that began as a creative and fun way to keep strong and healthy became a deep focus after her second child was unexpectedly born at home. The skills she cultivated on her yoga mat, have carried her through two difficult births and all the way into the teenage years!
Heather has been fortunate to study with excellent teachers, including Clio Manuelian, Matt Phippen, Joan Hyman, Jeanne Heileman, and Jodi Blumstein. She is grateful to all her teachers for inspiring her to find her own style that embraces both flow and form. Heather is a Yoga Alliance RYT-500 and, inspired to provide the opportunity for others to connect to inner strength and nurturing energy during pregnancy and motherhood, she became an R-PYT (Yoga Alliance certified Prenatal Yoga Teacher) and certified Ma Yoga® Instructor in 2021.
Practice With Me
"I love that yoga is a journey. You don't have to wait until you're 'good at it' - the reward is right now, in every moment on the mat. I especially enjoy working with people who think that they can't do yoga or don't realize the depth of the practice beyond the poses. I love seeing that light come on when they understand that the look and feel of their practice is uniquely their own."
Heather’s open-hearted approach to the practice enhances the accessible and mindful experience she creates for her students, leaving them enjoying the elevated state that the practice of yoga provides.
