500hr E-RYT, LMT
Heather Carpenter is the owner of VCYC, a 500hr E-RYT and LMT. The foundation of her classes comes from many years as a student and a continued passion to be a better yogini, educator and communicator. Heather has a strong background in anatomy, kinesiology and human services. She offers yoga teacher training once a year, and has a massage practice at the studio. When Heather is not studying, or working, she enjoys spending time with her husband and 4 kids- hanging out at the river, playing guitar and singing, or traveling.
Belly dance and 200hr CYT
I have been teaching Yogi Belly on the southern Oregon coast for 4 years. I was prompted to begin by my friends... they loved to see my dedication to belly dance and yogasana practices, and they wanted to learn from me. Since then, I have continued to seek expansion of my knowledge of yogic practices, belly dance, and music. Most notably, I am enrolled in Rachel Brice's 8 Elements of Belly Dance and completed 200 hour yoga teacher training with Heather Carpenter in January of 2020.
Meg is a long-time yoga practitioner and biologist, who taught high school for many years. She is a mother, musician and gardener and enjoys hiking, swimming, camping and foraging in the forest. She recently completed a 200-hour yoga teacher trying with Heather Carpenter and brings her positive energy and strong knowledge of human anatomy to her students.
Yoga has saved my life again and again in the most beautiful way. I look forward to sharing my practice with our community and leading other to the joy that comes from within.
