Open Space Yoga Teachers

 

Heather Tamposi, RYT 200, has always been dedicated to fitness. Starting as a young girl through to her high school days, she studied ballet, tap and jazz at Paulette Harwood’s Dance Studio in Newton, Ma. Heather took a semester of yoga as a college student at UNH, but it wasn’t until years later that she began to follow her passion with earnest. Her many years of dance transitioned easily to the path of a powerful Pilates practice for Heather. After several years of study, she was trained and certified through Stott Pilates; from beginner to advanced levels including both Mat and the full Apparatus repertoire. Her earlier experiences with yoga as a student, followed by her experiences as both a teacher and student of Pilates, informed her love and affinity full circle back to the path of yoga. Heather sees yoga as the holistic practice of reconnecting the body, breath, mind and emotions in a world that often takes us away from of true selves. Time and again, her yoga practice has offered Heather direction, so she is honored to hold space for others as they explore their own path. Heather believes in a strong foundation of breath and proper alignment which she believes leads to the idea that when we can align physically we can then better align mentally, emotionally and energetically. Heather completed her yoga training and was certified in the summer of 2018 by YogaWorks at Yoga Balance in Manchester, NH with Kate White. As a student of yoga for over 20 years, she draws from a variety of styles such as vinyasa, Hatha, Restorative and Yogilates. Heather’s background and training also includes 200 hour Power Yoga training with Sid McNairy, Restorative Yoga with Gail Grossman, Warriors and Yinjas Intensive with Jacqui Bonwell and many Kripalu yoga workshops such as Asana and Beyond with Natasha Rizopoulos, Yogilates with Jonathan Urla, Yoga for Depression with Amy Weintraub, Principle Based Partner Yoga with Elisabeth Williamson and The Way of The Happy Woman with Sarah Avant Stover. Heather continues to be truly grateful and inspired by her many fellow yoga teachers and she hopes to bring the same physical and mental benefits she gets from yoga to her students. She finds great significance in the words of Rumi, “Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray.”
