Heather Schmitt (she/her)

Heather Schmitt is a certified 500 RYT Hatha yoga instructor and a school teacher. She holds a bachelor’s degree in communications, a minor in women studies, two teaching degrees, a masters in education and is now teaching ESL in the Iowa City community.

Heather experienced the Costa Rican jungle to complete her 200-hour yoga certification under the extraordinary instruction of Liz Lindh. In the summer of 2023, Heather completed her 300-hour training in Italy, with Lindh.

Heather began practicing yoga in 2008. She realized unlike her other exercise programs, that yoga was a gentle way to exercise and a way to be kind to her body. Heather believes that yoga is much more than a physical practice. Yoga should encompass, not only the physical postures, but breathing techniques, mindfulness, and meditation.

Heather has been participating in yoga classes and retreats since 2008.  She focuses her practice on strength, awareness, movement, and breath.  Heather’s mission is to promote health through physical movement, breath work, and self study.
