About Heather Danso
Heather helps people access their innate healing and learning capacity.
No matter what we are facing, whether chronic illness, pain, degenerative disease, the natural aging process, we are all able to improve, and to change how we engage with our difficulties.
Everything Heather teaches and does is connected to healing, whether that is through art, energy work, hands-on movement therapy, education, or yoga.
Heather incorporated the Feldenkrais Method® and Yoga into her life as part of her development of strength and stability after multiple injuries. Her 35 years of dancing experience, 11 years of Vinyasa, Hatha, Yin, and restorative yoga practice, as well as intense work in physical therapy through multiple modalities, inform her understanding of the body and movement mechanics.
Her journey to healing has led her to seek a mindful approach to moving—an approach based on body-awareness, compassion, intentionality, expressiveness, and fun. Her formal training as a dance teacher and high school educator gives her a deep understanding for how the brain learns and that, as well as her extensive experiences with physical therapy, Feldenkrais, and yoga, informs how she structures classes.
She is devoted to helping people lower stress and find new possibilities for health, through restorative yoga, through mindfulness, as well as through honoring the intuition and experience of each individual.
In 2017, Heather travelled to Tetuoan, Morocco to be an Artist in Residence at Green Olive Arts. Check out the work!
