TEACHERS

Heidi Michelle

Heidi is a 4-year resident of Uvita, Costa Rica, and has been sharing yoga with students from around the world for over 7 years. She teaches a dharma-rich, gently demanding Vinyasa-flow practice with an emphasis on yoga as a practice ground for life. Initially inspired by Kundalini yoga, Heidi soon discovered Power Yoga and ventured into the philosophies which help guide her daily actions and choices. Heidi’s teachers include Rod Stryker, Shiva Rea and Anand Mehrotra. Heidi has also 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 Trainings. As a personal development and awareness facilitator from 1995 to 2002, Heidi’s passion for empowering people emerged. She has been guiding, teaching, and leading ever since — offering retreats, workshops and Yoga Alliance-Certified teacher trainings in the United States, India, Mexico, Panama and Costa Rica. “I’ve been practicing yoga for over 15 years and Heidi Michelle is one of my favorite teachers. Her style speaks to and calms my busy mind, every time—as she opens class I feel myself dropping in, effortlessly. Heidi encourages by calling my attention to aspects of a pose, maybe a subtle physical adjustment, internal sensation or state of mind, that I hadn’t ventured into before. Her instruction has, on a few occasions, helped me to find new edges and triumph over my own perceived obstacles. She has a gentle and playful style that puts me at ease, so if I choose to wiggle, touch down for balance or float unexpectedly into the fullest expression of a pose I feel supported by her mindful and caring instruction. I can’t wait for my next session with Heidi!” ~ Denise Dambrakas, Owner/Graphic Artist, Medulla Studio, Denver, CO Heidi Michelle is the founder of DragonFLYoga, is a Traveling Yogini, a Health and Peace Advocate and you can find her teaching yoga, SUP yoga, leading retreats and yoga teacher trainings at Selva Armonia Retreat Center in Uvita, Costa Rica, Danyasa Studio in Dominical, Costa Rica; Kindness Yoga Studios in Denver, CO. and The Studio Reno in Reno, NV.

Carl Weiseth

Carl has spent the last ten years chasing adventure amidst tropical jungles and alpine peaks around the world. His commitment to yoga and “breath-based physical cultivation” began after a windstorm blew him from the treehouse he’d constructed, 90-feet up, in an old-growth Douglas Fir tree. After 2 months in the hospital, he abandoned both his career and self-identity, and traveled to S.E. Asia to immerse himself in yoga, chi-quong, meditation, ecstatic dance and music. Since then, Carl has continued to deepen his yoga practice, his devotion to adventure-sports, and his musical and percussive skills. He has trained under a variety of teachers, in a plethora of physical modalities — evolving his own synthesis of movement, rhythm, breath and conscious-intention. He has also founded Third Eye Pinecones, a festival-based, organic jewelry business craftinCarlTreeg pendants from the center of the world’s densest Pinecone and planting a new tree for every pendant sold! Carl loves nothing more than sharing his love of the Costa Rican jungle with guests to the Uvita-area, and has spent the last 4 years scouting majestic hidden waterfalls, jungle-hikes, and pockets of wild-life far from the beaten path. He ardently believes an intimate personal connection with nature lies at the heart of both our physical and emotional health, as well as our broader relationship with the planet.
