Heather was first introduced to yoga over 20 years ago, when her husband encouraged her to try yoga to alleviate the stress of very long work weeks. Over the years, she found that yoga also helped her to recover from sports and military injuries, and helped her and her son to transform their minds, bodies, and spirits while having fun together. Unfortunately, when life became hard and she needed yoga the most, she did not have the time to get to the studio. This motivated her to get her RYT200, so that she could do yoga wherever she is, and to bring the same peace and balance to others wherever they are. She received her RYT200 from Soul Yoga in Greenville, SC in 2018. When she is not in the studio, you can find her teaching knitting and crochet, tutoring math, volunteering, working out, enjoying the outdoors, or getting silly with her boys.
Heather Weber instructs the following:
Southern 26 is a classic series of 26 postures held for 20, 30 or 60 seconds and repeated on the other side, known worldwide as ‘hot yoga’ and based on the work of Bikram Choudhury.
In a Yin Yoga class, you will hold a pose for 3-5 minutes. When holding a pose for longer periods of time the practitioner is able to get into the deeper parts of the body, the Yin parts. Tendons, ligaments, and joints are exercised, not stretched and the benefits of Yin are endless. We'll focus on the spine, forward folding, back bending, twisting, and side flexion, as well as the hips. As good as it will be for the body, a Yin practice can be challenging for the mind, because we rest into the poses. You will be talked through each posture and gently guided from one pose to another with more yang like movements to help the continuation of the blood flow to these yin-like places in the body.
Southern Stretch is a restorative practice that targets tightness in your body and tension in your mind. It is a refreshing way to enhance your flexibility and create a well-rounded daily practice. You will use props such as blocks, bolsters and blankets to support your practice and access the nooks and crannies of your body. The effect is that you leave class feeling more open, more content, and more possibility in your whole being.
