Ayurvedic Doctor, Yoga Therapist, Tibetan Cranial Practitioner, Spiritual Healer and Guide
Heidi's journey into health and healing began when she was 13 years old. She was diagnosed with severe scoliosis and used yoga to strengthen and heal her body. Her passion for yoga led her to Nepal where she received her Yoga Teacher Certificate from Sushil Bhattacharya in 1998.
Her thirst for meditation brought her to Kriya Yoga, and in 1999 she was initiated into the lineage of Paramahansa Hariharananda and Paramahansa Prajnanananda. Heidi's dedicated practice opened her heart, taught her the power of prayer, invoked the triple Divine qualities of Sound, Light and Vibration, and she shared the benefits of her yoga and meditation practice with many people in Denmark, her home country, helping them to find balance, health and inner peace.
Heidi moved to the United States in 2002 to deepen her learning and application of spiritual healing disciplines. Her teachings were enriched by formal academic training through Naropa University; her Bachelor of Arts Degree (2005) reflecting her focus on Contemplative Psychology, Health and Healing, Sanskrit, and Hindu philosophies, practices and traditions.
Heidi continued her learning in Ayurveda and Yoga Therapy, and in 2012, she completed four years of 3000 hours training as certified Ayurvedic Doctor from Alandi Ashram, and six years of 1175 hours Ayurvedic Practitioner and Yoga Therapist Professional Certification training program at the Rocky Mountain Institute of Yoga and Ayurveda in Boulder, CO.
Heidi is also trained in the rare ancient healing art of Tibetan Cranial by Master Teacher and Lineage Holder Shar Lee Lee, and has sine 2008 helped thousands of people heal from headaches, head trauma and injuries. As a C-IAYT Yoga Therapist, certified by the International Association of Yoga Therapists, Heidi Nordlund offers Yoga Therapy with a strong Ayurveda influence. Following the classical tradition of individualized yoga practice, Heidi formulates recommendations based on your particular constitution and imbalances.
Through the last 20 years of yoga, meditation, Ayurveda, Tibetan Cranial and healing practices, Heidi has acquired great knowledge and practical experience and brings an incredible power of divine opening to her healing work.
