Heather Daya Rideout

About The Teacher

Heather rubbed a genie’s lamp and went on a magic carpet-ride with yoga in 1999 when she set off for her first big backpacking journey to Nepal. The moment she landed in Kathmandu, she knew something inside of her had come home.  A graduate of over 600 hours with Asheville Yoga Center's teacher training programs, her adventures with yoga and global travel have taken her to living abroad extensively since 2008.  She has led classes, workshops and retreats in Nicarauga, Morocco, Bali, India, Guatemala, Malaysia and Thailand.  Heather’s teaching shares inspiration from the cultures of these magical places, places that constantly teach her how to most live yoga by being immersed in the energy of the current moment.
Heather is dedicated to guiding others on a path of exploring full-spectrum yoga in ways that liberate them to move, breathe and live more from the heart.  Whether she is leading Vinyasa Flow, Yin or Restorative classes, Heather integrates a mix of creativity blended with a down-to-earth nature that invokes a soulful, breath-inspired journey suitable for all.  She is fascinated by the messages taught in yoga philosophy, storytelling and mythology, so these elements often enrich her offerings.  At the core, Heather wants to remind you of being curious, introspective, grateful, authentic and balanced…so you can take care of yourself and dive fully into this sometimes wild, crazy and amazing ride called Life.

Think thoughts that make you happy. Do things that make you feel good. Be with people who make you feel good. Eat things that make your body feel good. Go at a pace that makes you feel good. Louis Hay
