"Going through the 200-hour Intensive YogaWorks Teacher Training in Washington DC with Heather Seagraves far exceeded my expectations. Not only did Heather have extensive knowledge about anatomy, physiology, yoga asana, and teaching but she led us through an intense, alignment based, graceful yoga practice infused with yogi like philosophical touches that forced us gently into ourselves and onto our mats more deeply and in a self-reflective nature. Heather brought a refreshing seasoned approach to teaching and sharing her knowledge, love, and passion for yoga. Her passion translated into every thought, word, and action in every part of our training and it was uplifting and empowering. She was able to lead us all deep inside to find a place of strength and love while learning the intricate parts to each pose and how to design a sequenced class with purpose. This yoga training was a catalyst for my personal and professional transformation. I am so happy that I chose to do my teacher training with YogaWorks while having the pleasure to learn from such a graceful and passionate teacher."

"Heather is an amazing instructor and a special soul. She not only taught me (and my fellow teacher trainees) the asana points, philosophy and Yoga Works Style, but she also helped create a safe space where we could grow & learn. I am grateful to Heather for creating a nurturing environment and for holding the container so that we could develop both as individuals and as practitioners.Her passion for teaching shines through in the care she takes with her students and with the material. I am motivated and inspired by Heather's love of yoga, her dedication to teaching, and perhaps above all her by her compassion for her students."
