Heather is a mother, a partner, a student, and an educator. She has been working in New York City as an independent dance artist, massage therapist, and 500hr certified yoga and anatomy teacher for over a decade. Heather holds a BFA in Dance from FSU with a concentration on Performance, Movement Conditioning, and Kinesiology. She is also a Doula with Carriage House Birth and a Senior Teacher and Trainer with YogaWorks, leading both 200hr and 300hr professional yoga programs in New York City and all over the US.
As a mover, shaker, and lover of the arts, Heather seeks to find the authentic artistic vision that lives within each of us. She began practicing yoga in 1996 and has been studying kinesiology and teaching multiple movement disciplines for 20 years. She has also taught as an adjunct dance professor at Georgia College & State University and Central Connecticut State University. With a background in structural bodywork and massage therapy, working with injuries and using biomechanics to inform her teaching are areas of keen concentration. Passion, playfulness, and curiosity are major components of Heather’s offerings and practice which help to ignite growth and self-study in this lifelong yogic quest for balance.
In Heather’s yoga classes, she combines her love of movement, creativity, kinesiology, and anatomy to bring strength, clarity, and awareness to the body. Focus on the individual and the breath are paired with dynamic intelligent sequence. With an educational and compassionate approach to yoga she strives to blend the balance of asana, self-reflection, and exploration of philosophy while encouraging students to find their own unique path to a continually evolving practice.
Heather’s primary teachers are Carrie Owerko and Rodney Yee. She has been dedicated to the art and practice of Iyengar Yoga since 2007 and has been inspired by many teachers along the way including Richard Rosen, Liz Marx, and Genny Kapuler.

Markella started practicing yoga consistently in 2009. She has always been physically active and at the time had been immersed in martial arts for many years. Markella went to her first class thinking she would find yoga slow and boring. Obviously, she was wrong.
Markella completed 500hrs of teacher training through YogaWorks under the mentorship of Chrissy Carter and has been teaching full time since 2015. She has additional training in Restorative yoga with Jillian Pransky, over 100hrs in anatomy, biomechanics and kinesiology with Jason Ray Brown, and most recently the Yoga Tune Up Level 1 teacher training with Laurel Beversdorf.
In 2017 Markella passed the YogaWorks Certification Assessment on the path to becoming a teacher trainer, and after assisting Chrissy Carter, Laurel Beversdorf and Sarah Bell in their respective 200hr teacher trainings, she officially joined the teacher training team. Markella will be co-leading a 3-month 200hr teacher training with Heather Seagraves in Spring 2019.
Markella is passionate about teaching a biomechanically informed practice that emphasizes inquiry, exploration, resilience and strength. She loves guiding her students to stay present and playful, and to move in ways that progress them towards clarity, balance and true alignment with themselves.
When Markella is not teaching, she is usually busy with some kind of project. Her previous life running farmers markets for the non-profit organization GrowNYC taught her the love and simplicity of cooking with fresh, local ingredients and an appreciation for the ebb and flow of the seasons. Markella loves to cook, bake and preserve food; she and her partner grow over 30 varieties of vegetables in their little patch of dirt in Brooklyn, NY.
