Santa Clarita Native, Heather Riggen has long dreamed of bringing the community practice of yoga to her hometown in a space she could share with others and provide warmth, love, and acceptance. Now her commitment to her practice along with a dedication to her dreams has turned thoughts into reality as she embarks on this journey to build not just a yoga space but a community center at Rising Lotus Yoga SCV. Heather studied under Claire Hartley and Daniel Stewart and completed her 200hr RYT from Rising Lotus Yoga in 2012.Since then she has continued to deepen her knowledge and has studied world wide attending various trainings and workshops. She has taught yoga in the Santa Clarita Valley both privately and publicly at crossfit gyms, barre studios,yoga studios, children's centers, senior centers,and her personal favorite, yoga in the park. She has experience with students from all ages and stages of life and always aims to meet her students where they are at. She believes yoga is much more than a physical practice,and that through practicing yoga we learn how to take control over our thoughts and actions in the world. She found yoga to be an invaluable tool to help her cope with her own struggles with anxiety and is passionate about spreading that knowledge to others. She enjoys teaching her students how to connect with their breath, body, and minds and hopes to empower people to believe in themselves and live their best lives.
