Welcome to Yoga Mama'z

I am beyond excited that you are here!  We all have a unique story that adds so much to this world.  My personal health story includes but is not limited to…

A health crash/spiritual awakening that combined a seizure, fascial restrictions after surgeries, hormonal imbalances beginning with early menopause to today, degenerative arthritis in the neck, weight loss and gain, debilitating reactions to medication, brain damage, daily migraines, miscarriages, pregnancies, toxin overload and daily chronic pain.  We all have our stuff!  It’s how we choose to react to the stuff that matters.  This health story also includes HOPE.  I choose HOPE daily and practice tools and habits to create more JOY and INSPIRATION in my life!

I am a wife, mom of 3, tree hugger (One time I came away covered in sap, after hugging a tree, while practicing yoga outside with a group of veterans…that was a good belly laugh moment!), belly laugher, coffee and chocolate lover just doing my best to live life simply and to it’s fullest potential. 

I would love to share what I’ve learned through yoga to help you discover your true self, connect more with your spirit and have FUN!  We were given this life to enjoy, and sometimes it feels so hard.  Let’s relax together, breathe, dive deep and connect in all Yoga Mama’Z has to offer…classes, workshop experiences, circles, personal movement sessions, Be Inspired Life Coaching sessions, corporate wellness sessions and more!

I am excited to connect with you and for your journey to your most passionate and inspired life!

God Bless & Namaste, Heather

Yoga Mama’Z Testimonials
(Moon Circles, Life Coaching, Classes)

My sister invited me to attend Yoga Mama’Z Moon Circle with her. I was more then happy to attend . My sister and I haven’t been close in many years as our past has been all over the place . Ever since we attended that evening class together we have been closer and connected a bit more. We opened up a bit more to each other and the feeling I received while being there was extremely peaceful and unique. Like I was meant to be there. I loved getting to know a bit about the other wonderful ladies and their stories and how they have enjoyed doing yoga and classes with Heather also I would highly recommend to anyone and everyone. Thank you Heather 😍

I went to see Heather when I was suffering from hip and leg pain.  I felt better almost immediately just talking with her as she has such an inviting, gentle, healing energy.  I quickly got better following her protocol for me.  I highly recommend her services!

I've been doing sessions with Heather for a couple years now and cannot say enough good things about it! Each session is individualized each week for what you need and where you are at -- I always leave feeling more balanced, renewed and ready to face the day. Thanks Heather!!

The New Moon Circle was great!  I was a little apprehensive at first but then I realized everyone was there in support of other women and to learn and grow in themselves.  It was great to be in space that was non-judgemental and supportive.  I liked setting the intention for the New Moon and picking a word to meditate on.  I feel it’s helped me to be more intentional these last few weeks since the last one.  Thank you for being encouraging to me to try something new.  It was a great experience!

I have attended the New Moon Women’s Circle a few times now and every time I feel like I learn something new. Taking the time to slow down, connect and uplift other women is empowering and gratifying.  I’m so thankful Heather offers this class and I always look forward to the next one!

Unexpected and almost immediate connection with strangers. Light and freeing.

My sister-in-law invited me to participate in the Yoga Mama'Z New Moon Women's Circle and I'm sooo glad I did! The experience was so awesome!! A room full of women, sharing what was on their heart...it was a great opportunity to make some new friends, refocus on what matters in life, renew my energy and purpose, and get centered again. I loved every minute of the evening and I would highly recommend this to anyone! You won't regret taking some time for yourself to participate in the next moon ceremony!!

I took a huge step out of my safe zone and listened to a call inside I had. I didn’t know who would be at the class and I knew of Heather but we never had spoken to each other before. She’s so welcoming!! Her studio is calming and relaxing! I was at ease with the smiling faces! I’ve never done anything like this. It was absolutely amazing! It was a safe zone with like minded friends. I loved every bit of it and totally need the light it put in me. Sometimes doing the scary things open up amazing doors to a new and empowering you that was scared to step up front and shine. I’m hooked and will be enjoying more classes. Thank you Heather for being you!

​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!
​​Todd Broich, Phy Ed Teacher/Coach for Sauk Centre, MN Schools

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!
