Heather Elson came to yoga practice in 2002, seeking a balance in a life brimming with full time work and a university course load. After the experience of her first savasana, Heather called her mom from the nearest payphone, enthusing, “you gotta try this yoga thing!” By 2005 Heather was trained as a Kid’s Yoga teacher, and by the middle of 2006 she was certified by Ron Reid and Diane Bruni at Downward Dog. Diving deeper still, 2007 saw her complete an advanced training in Restorative Yoga with Hali Schwartz, and open her own studio in Toronto’s west end. By way of a long, rich and meandering journey, Heather returned to her hometown of Hamilton in January of 2015, pregnant with her second son, and practicing headstand in the backyard right up until he made his appearance! Heather is thrilled to join the De La Sol community, and looks forward to breathing with you. Come and let her sing you into savasana! Favourite pose: Legs up the Wall. Gloriously good for you and so delicious!
