She studied extensively with Elysabeth Williamson, creator and founder of principle-based Partner yoga, and has been teaching Partner yoga since 2009, most recently leading Partner yoga teacher training. Her yogic teachings feature a dharma-rich, gently demanding Vinyasa-flow practice with an emphasis on yoga as a practice ground for life.
Heidi Grace Dietrich

Through the dance of balancing the body, mind, and spirit, she guides her students toward harmonizing their inner truth with actions and experiences. Utilizing therapeutics, Heidi Grace’s gentle and restorative approach to the yoga practice incorporates energy work, flower essences, mantra, yantra painting, gemology, astrology, stand-up paddleboarding (SUP), as well as yoga Nidra.
