Bali was the best experience. I loved it! Love that Heidi-Brooke-Jason! Great team and energy!- Rain Hartman, Encinitas, CA

Loved practicing yoga in beautiful Bali…it just seemed right. Morning practice in the open-air yoga salon overlooking the rice paddies was simply unforgettable!  Loved the variety of meditations-I learned so much! Loved the prana breathing exercises as well. -Jane Lewis, Seattle, WA

I loved the yoga, the people, the food and how inexpensive everything was.-Anonymous

Heidi, Jason, and Brooke put together an amazing trip. The yoga practice was in a beautiful setting and led by teachers who are among the best I have ever taken a class from. Outside of yoga, the adventures we went on were fun and interesting. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone, at any level of yoga experience. -Sandra Castro, Encinitas, CA

I know it probably looks cheesy, but I really did love every part of the yoga practice.-Anonymous

Both Heidi and Brooke had great dialogue, loved brooks tonality during meditation, really enjoyed the prana day one, loved the challenge of the last class. All the classes left me wanting more, energized and in love with life and yoga!! – Wendy Schubert, San Francisco, CA

This was an incredible experience. Thank you for putting it together. Love you guys! -Molly Ford, San Francisco, CA

Here’s what Heidi’s students think about her ability as a yoga teacher:

“I have been taking private yoga classes here for about 8 months and I just want to say that I have never made a more important commitment in my life.  The teacher is so thorough and patient, yet pushes me each time and I am in awe of what I have learned, of what I can actually do and of my new lifestyle in general.  I couldn’t have done it alone and I am so grateful that I found this studio – and will stick with it for a long time!!  :)” – Diane Jarrett, San Diego, California

“I had wanted to start yoga for a long time, I was always worried about starting and intimidated by group classes and not being able to keep up with the class. I went to Heidi’s private lessons and they were awesome, she is very patient and helpful to beginners and gives you the confidence to challenge yourself with each practice. I would highly recommend her studio, it is the perfect place to start taking classes.” -Katie Wicks, Encinitas, California

“Heidi is the best yoga teacher I have had. She is obviously knowledgeable about yoga but more importantly very approachable and friendly. Heidi’s classes not only benefit you physically but mentally and spiritually as well. She is very passionate about yoga and takes her work seriously, yet she maintains a mood of levity and fun with terrific music. Every time I leave her class I feel so amazing.  I highly recommend Heidi to anyone who is at any level of Yoga.” -Daniel Ukropina, San Diego, California

“I’ll start off by saying that I may quite possibly have the tightest, most inflexible body of all time.  With a very active lifestyle, I’ve noticed that the more the years add up the less my joints and muscles cooperate on a daily basis (and I’m young!!).  Not good.  I finally decided that it may be a good idea to embrace Yoga as a means to enable me to continue to enjoy my lifestyle for many many years to come without a tense, broken body.  Considering the embarrassment and lack of attention I would likely get from the large public setting, I looked to an alternative approach.  Heidi’s private studio became my first Yoga experience, and remains my goto destination.  She carries a lot of valuable experience which she can readily share with students of all experience levels.  I’ve learned that there are a variety of benefits to gain from regularly practicing Yoga, and Heidi can tailor sessions to focus on those which appeal to you most.  My knees, leg muscles, hips, and lower back (as with many males) stood out as areas that needed attention.  Considering this, in addition to my (in)experience level with Yoga, Heidi created Yoga sequences to fit my needs.  Throughout lessons she is very attentive to my postures and makes corrections to ensure I am properly executing as to maximize gain and not hurt myself! I highly recommend trying out Heidi’s private Yoga studio.  Whether you are experienced or a rookie, you will enjoy yourself, learn something new, and come out of it feeling more relaxed, healthy, and in tune with your body.” -Tim Charland, Del Mar, California
