I recently signed up for one of the Yoga workshops, just 2 classes in I love this place and Hiedi is a magnificent instructor/ guide. I look forward to many more experiences with Taspen.
Heather loves being out in nature, hiking, practicing yoga & meditation, camping, biking, paddle boarding, and snowboarding.
She also loves to learn about plants, crystals, astrology, alchemy, spagyrics and energy medicine. Heather has always enjoyed helping others with their health, which is what has led her on her path of a variety of ways to be of service to others. For many years Heather experienced inner ear congestion, which affected her hearing. After many medical exams and multiple medications, she became very frustrated when the problem persisted.
One afternoon, while sitting outside on a beautiful day Heather read an article about an Herbalist. After reading her profile, she was so intrigued and curious that she decided to make an appointment. This was the moment that changed her life forever. During her consultation, she found out that her ear congestion was likely being caused by Candida, a systemic overgrowth of yeast. There are numerous symptoms that are caused by Candida, ear congestion is one of the not so common symptoms. Shortly after starting on a supplement program and making dietary changes, which included eliminating sugar, yeast, most grains and any processed foods, the ear congestion was gone and she felt the best she had in many years. She was so excited and fascinated because for three years, she had seen multiple doctors and two Ear, Nose & Throat Specialists, which all continued to prescribe allergy medications and eventually a steroid medication, Prednisone, that has many horrible side effects. None of the medications worked, in fact, the Prednisone worsened the condition. Knowing what she knows today, after all her training and experience with clients, she understands why the medications didn't help. They didn't address the root cause of the condition.
This success brought about a profound interest in nutrition, herbs and natural healing, and she enrolled in a Master Herbalist Certification program. As Heather became more aware of toxic ingredients in most products, she started reading the ingredients listed on organic and natural skin care products in the health food stores. She was appalled to find out that these products still contained toxic ingredients. This prompted her to start making a few products for herself and her family. She loved it. All of her friends and family that had used the products she made kept telling her she needed to share them, so, what started out as a few facial care products along with some baby products has become a full blown product line ranging from healing facial/skin care line, aromatherapy, herbal tinctures, herbal teas, herbal salves and creams, elixir truffles and granola bars.
Heather and her husband, Keith, named their business Taspen's after their kids, Taylor & Aspen as they have inspired so many of their creations. Heather is an RN, Master Herbalist, CBP (Certified BodyTalk Practitioner), EVOX Practitioner, Satori Yoga & Kundalini Yoga Instructor. She is also studying Ayurveda and Astrology.
Heather’s sessions are offered from her heart and are very intuitive. Her goal is to get to the root underlying cause of her clients concerns and offer suggestions to assist them on all levels of healing~physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
