I love the feeling of the studio and the look of it.  It has a feeling of love and welcoming.  The confidence and encouragement of Heather is awesome!

​The Sauk Centre football team started doing yoga this season to help prevent injuries and recover from games.  Our athletes were hesitant at first, but Heather created a program that addressed our athletic needs and they love it.  It is something they look forward to every week. I would recommend Heather to any individual or team, it certainly has helped our football players.

If someone would have told me 5 years ago that I would be going to yoga classes and loving it, I wouldn’t have believed it!  But on the advice of a friend, I made the call and went to a yoga class!  Knowing nothing about yoga, I decided to start with some private sessions with Heather at Yoga Mama’Z and she’s been fantastic!  I have been struggling with a hip and lower back issue since I had hip surgery a year and a half ago, despite hard work with a physical therapist and long hours at the gym, I was still struggling with daily pain that was slowly starting to exhaust me physically and emotionally.  The constant struggle with pain, I was starting to doubt I would ever be free of it.  I went to my first yoga session a total skeptic, not really expecting to find help, but willing to try anything!  Now only a month into it, I can easily say it’s been the best decision I’ve made for my health!  The gains that I’ve seen since starting yoga just a month ago, far surpass anything I have done in physical therapy or at the gym in the last year and a half!  Heather is patient and understanding with my situation and when teaching me, she designs each session for what my body specifically needed.  I have gained an amazing amount of flexibility back in my joints, my balance is improving, and I have learned to stretch and strengthen my back and how to strengthen my core.  I am learning to breathe, and in doing so, am learning to control my pain and listen to what my body needs.  I am finding great relief and rest mentally and physically. I am so grateful for Heather and her wonderful, positive attitude and energy that she has shared with me.  I will continue to learn the art of yoga with eagerness, for I am hooked for life!

Thanks for letting my Phy Ed class come to the studio today!  That was awesome!  It was fun listening to the kids as they were walking back.  They and I felt good!  You do one heck of a job.  I will continue to brag and talk about you and Yoga Mama’Z.  Thanks so much!

I have been taking YIN Yoga classes from Heather at Yoga Mama’Z twice a week for the past 5 months.  It has been a long time since I’ve done any type of fitness class, but Heather helped me to feel welcome and comfortable right away.  I had total knee replacement last July.  Heather is very in tune to everyone’s strengths, abilities and comfort and will help them modify the poses if necessary.  I feel great after YIN, and I know that it helps both my knees to hurt less and to be stronger.  I love taking classes from Heather at Yoga Mama’Z and highly recommend it to all ages!

I’ve tried yoga in the past and never quite got the hang of it, but always felt like it was something I wanted to pursue.  The Intro to Yoga class got me hooked and the personal sessions have been tremendous!  Heather is such an awesome teacher.  She helps you adapt each pose to what works for you, while pushing you to make yourself better each time you are there.  The personal sessions are great because she adjusts the session to what works for you that week.  Sometimes it’s a kick-in-the-butt workout and others a more mellow stress reliever; each session is tailored and I leave feeling great.  Plus Heather’s energy and positivity make each session so much fun! Even when you know your arms or legs are going to be sore the next day you leave feeling so good and upbeat. Starting with Heather and doing the sessions each week is definitely one of the best choices I’ve made for myself. Thanks Heather!
