About Workplace Wellness

Our company has been working with Heidi for a few years now to institute a wellness program for our employees. We are a local manufacturing company and our production employees often get sore, stiff and can develop chronic pain from performing repetitive tasks regularly. Heidi comes in twice per week to work with our staff on stretching techniques that they can do at work and at home to proactively eliminate fatigue. Not only is this program helpful physically, it has contributed emotional positivity to our culture as well. Our employees look forward to their Wellness Training and enjoy her visits so much. In fact, they have established their own stretching regimen on the days that Heidi does not come based on what she has taught them. Our employees often provide very positive feedback about how much they appreciate and enjoy working with Heidi. We highly recommend working with Heidi to implement a wellness program in your work place.

After working with Heidi as a Health Coach for only 4 weeks, she inspired me to stop eating at drive thru’s and start preparing good, healthy, whole food at home. Since doing this, I feel much better, have more energy and am sleeping better than I have for years. I am also drinking at least 2 liters of water every day.

I learned the difference between processed and whole foods. I learned the importance of eating organically, that I really need to read the ingredients portion on the back of food packaging and I now know what to look for.

I highly recommend working with Heidi. She is very knowledgeable and gentle in her process, but will hold you accountable for the steps you are taking and what you are doing to improve your eating habits. If you are feeling stuck and need some gentle, caring guidance, Heidi is AWESOME!

About Private Yoga

Private family yoga classes with Heidi enhanced our vacation experience immeasurably! Heidi is a talented teacher who offered calming meditations to help us slow down and take in the beauty of our surroundings and our practice together. She provided expert adaptations on postures attuned to the wide array of needs and strengths of each participant—some of us practice yoga weekly and others rarely. Yet, we all relaxed, gained greater flexibility, and felt more connected. Heidi is a creative, loving and generous guide who inspired and supported us with her humor, warmth, skill and wisdom.

About Retreating

I had the good fortune of spending a week in Costa Rica with Heidi for a retreat this winter. I love, love, loved it! I am new to yoga and was somewhat tentative of signing up for a yoga retreat. It turns out a week spent under Heidi’s wing was just what I needed. She created a great atmosphere where I was willing to let it all go and just give it my all. I learned a lot and walked away a week later feeling energized and more grounded. Heidi has a wonderful presence. She is encouraging while not being demanding. She is authentic while very humble and honest. Where I come from yoga is almost a competitive sport and it was refreshing to practice with someone that understood and practices true yoga. Yoga is not just about being bendy in your body but also, and more importantly, having a little bend in your soul - Having compassion and being grateful and open. Heidi embraces and embodies all of that. She is a beautiful being both inside and out! I think of my retreat daily. I think of Heidi daily. Selva Armonia is a very special place to be and Heidi is a very special person to be with.

Very few would dispute that an organization’s greatest asset is their employees. This very much rang true for Northern Nevada Children’s Cancer Foundation. This is why our organization sought out Heidi Michelle to teach our team emotional and physical self-care. Heidi has a extraordinary way of encouraging personnel through inspiring language and mindful movement. I highly recommend contracting Heidi to help lead your team to greater health.

I have been drinking La Bomba (Heidi Michelle’s anti-inflammatory concentrate) for a little over a month now. When I first started, I was drinking it twice daily (morning & night) to replace the (store bought) supplements that I had been taking. I drank it twice a day for two weeks, then switched to once a day (mornings only) after noticing I no longer had the joint pain in my hands that I was used to experiencing later in the evenings. I feel 100x better and truly look forward to making La Bomba each morning, knowing that with every sip I’m closer to a healthier me!

About Group Practice

After 1 week of yoga in Thailand, with different teachers, I found myself thinking today that your classes are the best I’ve ever experienced - demanding and challenging yet gentle and nurturing. You truly rock my dear!

About Teacher of Teachers

Heidi Michelle is a gift to the world. She is my teacher. I appreciate the way she dives deep into the minutia of yoga asanas in her teaching practice which supported me in elevating my yoga practice and having more awareness of my body. I love Heidi’s heart connection! She is one of the most inspiring, genuine, accountable human beings I am honored to know. Her reflection brings so much light to this world and I feel blessed to receive her love and wisdom. She is a powerful Yoga teacher I look forward to her next teacher training event!

About Yoga Retreating

I’ve been practicing yoga for over 15 years and Heidi Michelle is one of my favorite teachers. This is why I chose to participate in her retreat this past summer in Costa Rica. Her style speaks to and calms my busy mind, every time—as she opens class I feel myself dropping in, effortlessly. I find that I enjoy what I call an athletic approach to yoga, always pushing my edges. Heidi encourages this by calling my attention to aspects of a pose, maybe a subtle physical adjustment, internal sensation or state of mind, that I hadn’t ventured into before. Her instruction has, on a few occasions, helped me to find new edges and triumph over my own perceived obstacles. She has a gentle and playful style that puts me at ease, so if I choose to wiggle, touch down for balance or float unexpectedly into the fullest expression of a pose I feel supported by her mindful and caring instruction. I can’t wait for my next session with Heidi!
