Meet Heather Foat

Since becoming certified in 2010 at Zuda Yoga, Sacramento, CA, Heather Foat has taught not only in yoga studios, churches, and corporate offices but recovery programs, The Men's Salvation Army and Community Addiction and Recovery Association. She has served as an Ambassador for Yoga Across America, a non-profit that brought yoga to under-served communities and high schools throughout the United States as well as started Girls Yoga Academy, Sacramento, 2012-2013, to incorporate movement with play therapy for girls ages 9-11. 

Yoga is not just for the body, it has many healing capabilities which is why Heather strives to share the practice with every body. Helping patients that are suicidal, depressed, anxious and suffering from mental illness, Heather for 2+ years taught chair yoga at UCSD Hospital in the Psychiatric Ward and Senior Behavioral Unit as well as off-site long-term mental health care, Crestwood Behavioral Health, Inc. 

For nearly a decade, Heather has been threading personal development into the practice of yoga to help people wherever they are in life. She leads chair yoga, gentle yoga, power yoga, yin, prenatal, mommy and me, and kids/teen yoga.
