Meet Your Facilitator

Heather Stanley

Heather has spent over 30 years combining Eastern and Western disciplines for healing and personal growth. When she started taking classes with a well-known hatha and raja yoga trainer, she discovered a new way to manage stress and found that yoga became essential in her life. Heather completed a yoga teacher training program in 1993 and later left her corporate job to follow her passion for teaching, cycling, and art. Her dedication and experience led her to develop and facilitate a two-year comprehensive yoga teacher training program at Georgian College, which she did for 13 years. Heather is multi-talented and has training in various fields such as hypnotherapy, medical exercise therapy, nutrition, acupuncture, traditional Chinese medicine, Qigong, and fine arts. She believes we are never finished learning and continuously enrolls in courses to keep growing and challenging herself. Heather’s approach is always focused on balancing strength and flexibility, dynamic and ease, and her classes emphasize traditional movement, breathing focus, meditation, and intention. Everyone who spends time with Heather can expect to move their body and encounter themselves on a deeper level.
