I have now been working with Heather for over a year.  Every workout is unique and well thought out.  Her energy is always positive.  Her experience and knowledge in the realm of intense exercise is immediately apparent.  Most importantly, she has helped me attain all of my physical fitness goals.  Working with Heather has turned into a most pleasant experience and one of the best decisions I have made in recent years.

Heather’s energy as a dance teacher is outrageously uplifting and contagiously fun.  Her classes are the most cardiovascularly challenging work outs I’ve found and I am a 2 hour a day work out type of woman.  Your body, and moreover, your spirit will be served deeply by checking out Heather’s classes.

~ Rachel Kaplan, Holistic Psychotherapist and Yoga teacher

If I could go to every single one of Heather’s classes, I would! I know that especially on those days when my energy is low, as soon as I drag myself into Heather’s Shimmy or Power Pop class, I will be immediately restored to my most enthusiastic and whole self. I believe Heather makes us all feel like we deserve to feel beautiful and healthy and strong and like the rest of the day doesn’t matter as much as the time we have given ourselves to stretch and dance it out! Her warm and generous spirit is fully present throughout each routine, and each time I see Heather, I always get a huge smile which actually feels like I’m getting a huge hug! Without fail, I feel empowered, refreshed, and sweaty after a Heather class, and that’s perfect!

I don’t normally get excited about workout classes, but Heather’s is my ‘must-do’ piece of self-nurturing I promise myself each week. Not only are her classes good for me physically; her energy lifts my mood.

~ Jory Des Jardins, BlogHer Co-Founder, President Strategic Alliances

Heather is such a positive, uplifting instructor!  Her classes are super-high energy, and I feel healthier and happier after each hour with Heather.  I have gone down one dress size and both my strength and my stamina continue to improve.  Everyone needs a little Heather in their life!

Heather’s classes are the highlight of my week.  She makes fitness fun!

~ Britt Bravo, Owner, Big Vision Consulting

From the minute Heather’s smile lights up the room until the time she says, “See ya’ll later, all you beautiful ladies,” I’m glad I came.  Beyond the wonderful class she teaches, Heather’s positive energy is contagious.  As someone who continues to struggle with weight and the insecurities that surround that, it’s encouraging to be in class with an amazing teacher that constantly reminds me how awesome I am.

~ I’Asha Warfield, Middle School Teacher

I have nothing but positive things to say about Heather to anyone who asks.  I happened upon her class at Hipline a few months ago and I have loved every minute. Shimmy Pop is an excellent cardio workout that pairs fun dance moves and positive energy.   I believe that you meet people at the exact moment that you are supposed to.  During the current transitions in my life, I am inspired by Heather’s energy and uplifting aura.  In the time that I have known her, I can say that Heather is someone I look up to and aspire emulate in my own life.

~ Charlotte Pickett, Middle School Math Teaching Associate

Heather is an enthusiastic role model and inspiration.  A bundle of energy, Heather is always (always!) upbeat, positive, and ready to work out.  Even on rainy days, days when she has a cold, days when we would all rather be in bed, Heather is raring to go.  Her energy is infectious.

She’s a born teacher.  Heather breaks the complex down into the simple.  She offers advice, but never orders.  She makes adjustments for everyone’s individual needs, and is able to serve both beginners and more advanced students with ease.

She’s warm, understanding, & supportive…but, she’ll push you, too.  Heather understands that high expectations and high levels of support are a winning combination.  She’ll ask you how your sore knee is.  She’ll remember that you went on vacation.  She gets it when you’re having an off day and will sympathize, and then she’ll remind you to challenge yourself.


We’re lucky to be Heather’s students.  You could be, too!
