About Heidi Horne:
Heidi is passionate about yoga, the yoga lifestyle and believes yoga is for everyone. She embraces a holistic approach to wellbeing and exercise, and is qualified with Dip Yoga Teaching, Dip Aromatherapy, Dip Remedial Massage and Therapies. She has been practicing yoga for more than 20 years and has taught classes in Australia, England and Samoa. She believes that outer health and beauty is linked to a wholesome approach to food, mental wellbeing and exercise. Her classes are accessible to all participants from beginners to the more experienced. Heidi teaches privately as well as in a number of health centres on the northern beaches of Sydney.
Using Hatha asanas (poses) and incorporating a Vinyasa Flow style, the classes are perfect for those who want to get fit and toned with yoga, but also take time to nurture their body, mind and soul. Using a variety of flows, postures and teachings, the class will help you gain strength, flexibility, alignment, balance and calmness of mind. Incorporating breath with movement (vinyasa), the class also includes a guided relaxation.
Her classes are perfect for those leading busy and demanding lives. Tension and stress will be released, and you will feel like you have had a massage inside and out! Heidi's positive approach to yoga and natural therapies will have you feeling happier, healthier and more prepared to deal with your busy lifestyle.
When I started taking Heidi's yoga classes, 18 months ago, I was an absolute beginner. Her warm and caring approach to teaching made me feel really comfortable. Her lessons are really well planned and cater for all levels of experience. I always come out of Heidi's classes feeling physically and mentally energised.
(Rebecca Quayle, student and mother of 2).
I have been attending Heidi Horne's Yoga classes for over 12 months, I have found her style and approach to teaching, nurturing, spiritual with complete dedication to ensuring that all attending are working to their own personal limits.
Heidi has the ability to challenge the class and at the same time, balance with humour and fun whilst encouraging her students to find their own journey through their practice.
As a qualified yoga teacher myself, teaching here in Australia and overseas and having made my own yoga DVDs, I would highly recommend Heidi and encourage my yoga colleagues to practice with Heidi and experience her wonderful nurturing style of teaching.
