ABOUT Heather Kinang (YA E-RYT 500)
Heather is a self-professed yoga nerd. She first stepped onto a yoga mat at university when she was dragged to her first class and floated out the door. Born in Brisbane, a love of travel and adventure soon lured her to SE Asia, India and Nepal where she resided for several years, studying Buddhism and Hinduism – it’s Gods and Goddesses, it’s myths and mantras – from her Kathmandu family.
Heather’s Yoga Teacher Trainings include –
2007 – 200 hour Anusara Teacher Training under the guidance of Noah Maze & Sianna Sherman who both continue to mentor her.
2010 – Julie Smerdon’s Level 1 200 hour Teacher Training in Brisbane
2014 – Sianna Sherman’s Level 1 200 hour Teacher Training in Los Angeles
2017/2018 – Noah Maze’s Level 2 300 hour Teacher Training in Brisbane
2020 – She recently refreshed her skills with Noah Maze’s 2020 Level 1 200 hour teacher training (online).
Douglas Brooks is her philosophy guru.
Maty Ezraty & Elena Brower are major influences.
Her Yin Yoga teachers include Sarah Powers (100 hour teacher training in Los Angeles 2014) and Joe Barnett (50 hour teacher training in Brisbane 2015)
Heather’s classes are challenging and informative with an emphasis on physical alignment. She believes a consistent yoga practice helps you achieve your highest level of wellbeing, both physically and emotionally, because, as Heather realised after her very first yoga class, the lessons learned on the mat are lessons for life.
She is a Yoga Teacher Trainer, organises and leads Yoga Treks to Nepal and teaches locally, nationally and internationally.
