I started attending The Back Straight Yoga classes with Heather as I have long had problems with my shoulders, which affects my neck and jaw and hoped the yoga class would help. Heather is very knowledgeable. Her friendly, inclusive teaching style encourages self awareness whilst ensuring postures are not just correct but energy efficient. Transferring the learning into my daily life is a challenge, but is already having positive results.
