TEAM BIO

Heather Macleod

OWNER, DREAMER

The first time Heather connected with yoga she knew she had stepped onto a new path. Yoga became a practice that led her back home to herself. The focus she experienced when fully surrendering to movement brought her unexpected gifts of peace and presence.

Over the last 10 years she has watched in awe as this community of students, teachers, staff and volunteers took shape. In 2014, Heather opened a second yoga studio in Westshore, with her business partner Darci Nyal. Over the course of the last decade Heather has grown her tribe and together they have created a culture of wellness (and fun!!) that continues to carry forward today.

As an owner, Heather advocates for the needs of the students. She is passionate about building community and creating opportunities to link students together. Heather values acceptance and strives to create a space that is accessible for bodies of all different sizes and experience levels to explore movement and bridge connection between mind-body-spirit.  

Heather is a mother to her 3 year old daughter and soon to be son! In this chapter of her life, she relies on the off-the-mat practice of yoga more than ever to support her in parenting with mindfulness. She loves to connect through nature and understands first hand the challenge of balancing family with work and self-care. With this in mind, she’s plans to build in ways for yoga to be more accessible for parents/caregivers.

Heather continues to be inspired by the leaders on her team that help to inspire our exceptional teaching faculty and ensure the studio is a warm and welcoming space for students. She appreciates that it takes a village to build two studios of this calibre and size! Heather is beyond grateful for the role every person plays to make Yoga Lab Victoria and Yoga Lab Westshore feel like home for so many people.
