Welcome to ALTAR

We believe that life is movement and you are movement. 

At ALTAR we encourage our students to bring more movement into their lives in a variety of ways using what is known as “Instinctive Embodiment.” 

Heather Briann, the founder of ALTAR movement, created this three tiered approach in order to support each student in embodying their inborn wisdom.

{ 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.

Heather Briann

As the founder of ALTAR movement, she loves the opportunity to gather community in order to facilitate experiences that help each person awaken to their own inner vitality. She weaves ritual, nature cycles, instinctive meditation, functional movement, biomechanics and yoga asana into her classes showing the truest reflection of her own experience of living out this path of intimacy with self, others  and all of life. She loves nothing more than to open her heart, mind and soul to those curious souls who are willing to explore movement in all its various forms.
