Heidi Hopkins’ (E-RYT-500hrs) passion for yoga began in 1997. With a background in weight training, she found her way into a vinyasa yoga class and was amazed at the incredible ease, fluidness and peace she experienced. “I want to live in this!,” was her thought. A dedicated yoga practice led her to complete a 200 hour teacher’s training program with Living Yoga in 2001, and she began instructing that same year. Heidi deepened her understanding of yoga by participating in an advanced studies intensive and mentoring with a group of senior yoga teachers in Texas from 2002 to 2004. She has studied with Master yogis including Rodney Yee, Shiva Rea and Ramanan Patel. Heidi is a lead teacher for Aloha Yoga Kula’s Advanced Studies/Teacher’s Training Program and teaches classes of all levels throughout Oahu.
Heidi’s genuine exuberant spirit permeates her classes creating a supportive and peaceful environment. Her unique teaching style and skilled adjustments allow students to explore their edge while staying centered in the breath.
