Heather Bonker

Heather is a 500 ERYT vinyasa yoga teacher as well as formally have been the coordinator and co-facilitator for the Radiantly Alive Yoga Teacher Trainings in Ubud Bali for more than 7 years. She took a mini-section of Jennifer’s PVYT course years ago and just completed it in 2015 while in her own second trimester of pregnancy.

Though currently based in the UAE, yoga and teaching has brought her to other parts of Asia, North America, Australia, Europe and the Middle East.

Influences and study:

Her practice began well over a decade ago with primary influences from a combination of Ashtanga, Jivamukti, power vinyasa and meditation lines, including (to name just a few and give thanks to) Daniel Aaron, Dena Kingsberg, Philip Urso, Edward Clark, Denise Payne, Alanna Kaivalya, Emil Wendel and many more.

Her teaching style:

Students find Heather’s classes and voice gracefully fluid and caring while also being quite dynamic, creative, and with an intuitive dance quality. Her teaching combines a passion for yoga along with her many other people centered skills and degrees in psychology and human rights- adding supportive guidance towards greater fulfillment, well-being and health for all.

She’s perhaps increasingly better known for her growing body of photographic work, which is largely of sojourning yogis in photographic rich Bali. You can see her professional work at: www.heatherbonker.com
