Heidi MacBeth first started teaching yoga and now teaches meditation classes as well. She has a long history of practicing yoga and says she was ‘immediately hooked’. She says that being a teacher helps her dive deeper into the teachings of Yogananda and the yogic way of life, and that “… you always learn from the students!”
Her advice to people interested in yoga and meditation is to definitely give it a try, because, when you make a genuine effort, the practices have the ability to bring your life into balance on all levels, such as helping to bring physical and emotional healing, reducing stress, and giving a more harmonious look on life and the world. “It can bring more happiness into your life!”
Heidi was born and raised in Finland, and moved to America after meeting her husband, Garth. Heidi enjoys reading, and with Garth, taking long walks while soaking in the beautiful scenery of the Pacific Northwest.
When not teaching, you can find Heidi in the office at Ananda Temple, working with student registration for programs like Raja Yoga and Meditation and Yoga Teacher Training. She has also been a part of Ananda’s foreign rights book publishing work. She says she likes helping with the ‘behind the scenes’ tasks, and you can often find her designing our many flyers and mailings.
