This class is taught by:

Nick Heffelfinger

Nick Heffelfinger is originally from Allentown, Pennsylvania where he first fell in love with Yoga. After being admitted into a performing arts high school, The Lehigh Valley Charter High School for the Performing Arts, he took regular yoga classes at school and soon found a deep love for not only the physical benefits, but also the mental clarity he couldn't quiet understand. He then started his professional career at age sixteen performing for four years at his local amusement park, Dorney Park and Wildwater Kingdom. From Pennsylvania, Nick moved to Boston, Massachusetts to attend The Boston Conservatory with a Bachelor in Fine Arts in contemporary dance performance. At school, Nick found a deeper appreciation for yoga while immersing himself in intense yoga classes as well as a weekly restorative practice to combat the physical strain from performing regularly.

Since graduation in May of 2017, Mr. Heffelfinger quickly moved to Dallas, TX to perform with Dark Circles Contemporary Dance as well as joining the new Netflix reality series Dancing Queen, featuring famous drag queen Alyssa Edwards. He decided to take a leap of faith and further his yogic studies by joining Namah Sivaya's teacher training program. He received his Yoga Alliance Certificate in January of 2018 and immediately decided to deepen his practice by joining the 500-hour teacher training program (anticipated March 2019). Nick's practice challenges the physical in a body positive manor. He is interested in the connection between the body and mind and how a yoga practice can influence daily life.

Howdy! I want you in my class. Yoga immeasurably enhanced my life and I have a passion for sharing everything I’ve learned.
The first time I took a yoga class (back in 1995), I hated it. I didn’t try a yoga class again until 2010. What motivated me? Vanity. My face broke out in what I’d later learn was a severe allergic reaction. It was so intense, my skin had the appearance of a scathing burn. I didn’t want to be seen, so I almost entirely quit leaving the privacy of my home. I needed to stay active, so I started taking yoga because the room had dim lighting. The benefits to my body were astonishing and my mind was positively transformed. I was hooked!
I was compelled to start teaching so I could help others with their journey to realizing their highest potential. Amongst many other things, I’ve learned that external beauty is only skin deep, but the light that shines within all of us is truly breathtaking.
I’ll see you on the mat.
This is a passive practice using bolsters, blocks and blankets to support the body. Restorative poses help relieve chronic stress, stimulate the organs and reduce blood pressure.
