Welcome to ALTAR.

Here you will find opportunities to move your body, your breath and your mind through our Instinctive Embodiment sessions, workshops and retreats.

There are two ways to work with Heather, 1-on-1 or in a group setting. Heather specializes in working with people who are challenged by anxiety, overwhelm and traumatic stress. 1-on-1 sessions begin with a 15-minute Intro call to make sure you are a good fit with one another. Heather’s group classes are seasonal-based experiences that weave movement, instinctive meditation and functional breathwork. She calls this methodology: Instinctive Embodiment.

{ Instinctive Embodiment }

Movement | Breath | Instinctive Meditation

Instinctive Embodiment: Noun / Verb:

The three-pillared discipline of incorporating mindful movement, breathwork and instinctive meditation into our everyday lives with the intention of returning the self to the body. Derived from the Latin root for “impulse” or “inspiration” this methodology works on the principle that by creating sound, seasonally adjusted, supportive practices for our bodies we can adapt and flourish more fully within our lives.
