1
00:00:20,870 –> 00:00:22,910
my name is Heather with the Danville

2
00:00:22,910 –> 00:00:25,580
yoga and wellness center I found my way

3
00:00:25,580 –> 00:00:29,780
to yoga in 1996 was 18 at the time and

4
00:00:29,780 –> 00:00:31,940
after a lifetime of dance and ballet

5
00:00:31,940 –> 00:00:34,550
modern and belly dancing I had

6
00:00:34,550 –> 00:00:37,400
accumulated injuries angry choice knee

7
00:00:37,400 –> 00:00:38,989
injuries and hip injuries and was

8
00:00:38,989 –> 00:00:41,420
finding that my body was breaking down

9
00:00:41,420 –> 00:00:44,870
and at the time my company that was

10
00:00:44,870 –> 00:00:46,370
working at offered for your classes

11
00:00:46,370 –> 00:00:48,290
during their lunch hours so I thought

12
00:00:48,290 –> 00:00:51,800
wander in there and dried out and I

13
00:00:51,800 –> 00:00:53,900
loved it from the very first class it

14
00:00:53,900 –> 00:00:55,610
was like coming home it was this

15
00:00:55,610 –> 00:00:57,410
beautiful mix of everything I love from

16
00:00:57,410 –> 00:01:00,530
dance plus the beautiful spirituality

17
00:01:00,530 –> 00:01:03,290
that I’ve been raised with and I was

18
00:01:03,290 –> 00:01:07,040
hooked from that day on and I practiced

19
00:01:07,040 –> 00:01:10,570
yoga ever since about five years ago

20
00:01:10,570 –> 00:01:13,400
teaching kind of fell into my lap I

21
00:01:13,400 –> 00:01:16,070
wandered into a studio and was just with

22
00:01:16,070 –> 00:01:17,810
new to the area and wanted to get a

23
00:01:17,810 –> 00:01:19,610
schedule and started chatting up the

24
00:01:19,610 –> 00:01:21,530
owner and he called the next day and

25
00:01:21,530 –> 00:01:23,780
said hey can you teach for me and I said

26
00:01:23,780 –> 00:01:25,960
well I’ve never done that before

27
00:01:25,960 –> 00:01:28,450
and he said but that’s okay I’d like to

28
00:01:28,450 –> 00:01:31,960
give you a dry and I did and I loved it

29
00:01:31,960 –> 00:01:35,110
and they loved me and I’ve been about

30
00:01:35,110 –> 00:01:38,860
five years down teaching and i love it i

31
00:01:38,860 –> 00:01:42,400
love the relationship with my students

32
00:01:42,400 –> 00:01:44,800
I’ve done a 200 hour training with your

33
00:01:44,800 –> 00:01:46,360
works now to really deepen my

34
00:01:46,360 –> 00:01:49,149
understanding of the anatomy how to work

35
00:01:49,149 –> 00:01:51,869
with injuries and deep in the philosophy

36
00:01:51,869 –> 00:01:57,149
understanding and it’s beautiful

37
00:02:02,490 –> 00:02:05,290
my teaching style is influenced by a

38
00:02:05,290 –> 00:02:08,020
number of different backgrounds I’ve

39
00:02:08,020 –> 00:02:12,040
studied ashtanga and I angaar I studied

40
00:02:12,040 –> 00:02:13,780
with yoga works which makes us a bit of

41
00:02:13,780 –> 00:02:16,239
the two and then adds in I’m Vinnie yoga

42
00:02:16,239 –> 00:02:18,760
as well I do like to do a little

43
00:02:18,760 –> 00:02:20,110
restorative every once in a while

44
00:02:20,110 –> 00:02:21,940
because we need that stillness and the

45
00:02:21,940 –> 00:02:24,180
midst of all this chaos

46
00:02:24,180 –> 00:02:27,280
so I really like to kind of take all the

47
00:02:27,280 –> 00:02:28,660
different things that I’ve touched on

48
00:02:28,660 –> 00:02:30,670
and blend them together for a really

49
00:02:30,670 –> 00:02:32,980
well-rounded class very much breath

50
00:02:32,980 –> 00:02:36,130
based very much movement based I don’t

51
00:02:36,130 –> 00:02:39,190
hold poses as long usually I like to

52
00:02:39,190 –> 00:02:42,240
kind of flow in and out so we can really

53
00:02:42,240 –> 00:02:46,980
thread movement and breath and body and

54
00:02:46,980 –> 00:02:50,170
consciousness and really get a heart

55
00:02:50,170 –> 00:02:53,890
space going that’s really that’s kind of

56
00:02:53,890 –> 00:02:56,400
a summary

57
00:02:57,470 –> 00:00:00,000
you
