Heidi Zalewski

Heidi has been practicing yoga for about 10 years. She has always been physically active and at the same time always sought a sense of connection and wholeness through spiritual and meditative practices. She found the perfect combination of these aspects of health and wellness in Yoga. She first recognized the beneficial potential of yoga by practicing yoga at home with videos but truly fell in love with yoga after taking her first group class.

Heidi has her Masters Degree in Social Work and originally worked with adolescents with substance abuse issues until she and her family moved to Illinois where she transitioned to working from home to have more time and flexibility while raising her 3 children. As her children have grown and become more independent, Heidi has had time to focus more thoroughly on her yoga practice. It has been like coming home, as she feels the trajectory of yoga for her has been a lifelong process of reconnecting to her true self and purpose. It seemed a natural progression to complete her 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training with Mara Campbell enabling her to share the healing and growth she has found through Yoga with others. She is absolutely thrilled to be teaching at the Yoga Effect.

In addition to practicing and teaching yoga, Heidi loves to spend time with her husband, three children, and two dogs. She also enjoys reading, hiking, camping, and knitting.
