Heidi Lockhart worked in higher education administration in California for more than three decades guiding students and staff in their educational and professional careers before retiring and moving to the Big Island. Teaching yoga since 2009 and a lifelong health and wellness nerd, Heidi is also an Integrative Health Practitioner/Wellness Coach who guides clients in finding vibrant health through nutritious food choices, movement, de-stressing, positive mindset, removing toxicities and replenishing deficiencies. An avid road and Peloton cyclist, hiker and walker, Heidi first found yoga when her usual exercise routine did not ease her anxiety-laden depression and calm her Type A, perfectionist tendencies. Amazed by yoga’s impact on her own mind and body, she knew she had to share this amazing tool with others. Ten years after her yoga teaching career began, yoga and meditation made a significant difference in her healing and recovery as a breast cancer survivor/thriver and she delights in sharing the power of yoga for health and wellness with her students. Passionate about guiding students through their own personal transformations whether in higher education, health journeys, or yoga, Heidi weaves inspirational themes, eclectic music, mindset, and most importantly, positive energy to guide each student through their own, individualized yoga path.
