Meet Lin Heidt- an SE practitioner, certified yoga teacher and an intuitive healer in Canmore, Alberta

Hello! I am Lin Heidt. I have been passionate about healing modalities for over 25 years. I started out pursuing various healing practices and soon my path led to meditation. I started my yoga path soon after, and through many travels discovered the potent modality of Somatic Experience, which now influences most of my current work.

The journey that has led me here has been marked by my own challenges and curveballs, like so many of us. After a series of horrible challenges I was left to face my limiting beliefs, shadows and self sabotaging behaviors that had imprisoned me for far too long. It was in one of the worst periods that I chose to pursue a transformational process that upended generations of trauma, roles, belief systems and the status quo that I had accepted as how things are.

I have spent time in adventure sports a mountain sports enthusiast, pioneering extended ski trips, and climbing globally. I chose to pursue a career in Landscape Design after some other doors closed, and designing large areas and working with plants was a rewarding career. I will carry the benefits of this time throughout my life and am incorporating it in the healing work I now do.  

I have studied and practiced many types of yoga: Bikram, Ashtanga various forms of Vinyasa and Hatha. As I travelled to California, Australia, Mexico, east and west in Canada and beyond, I had many opportunities to participate and learn various forms with a variety of teachers. I feel so blessed that I had a widely encompassing introduction to yoga and I came to love all of it, from Restorative to Vinyasa. It is Hatha and Vinyasa that is the foundation for my personal practice, classes and workshops. 

I am a dedicated meditation practitioner, and my 23+ years of practice have opened another dimension of the wholistic health disciplines. I am by no means enlightened, but I have reaped the benefits of a contemplative practice and I believe that in the years to come neuroscience and the medical community will support what traditions have been saying for centuries.
