Heidi stumbled upon her daily yoga practice being an acting student in New York. Studying seven days a week she needed a space where she could clear her head and find a neutral ground. Dabbling in yoga for some years before, she decided to try Bikram, and signed up for an executive 30 day challenge. 30 days turned into many more, and after finishing her acting studies she went on to do her 200 hour Vinyasa Yoga teacher training with Yoga To The People in New York. Merging the practice of vinyasa and the hot room became her baby, and she brought it back to Oslo in 2013, being the first teacher in Oslo to teach Hot Vinyasa classes. She now enjoys teaching and practicing numerous styles, and is always looking for a new challenge.

 

“I believe that yoga benefits everyone, but that we might have different approaches to the philosophy. I believe the practice should be fun, but I also appreciate the strong mental and physical aspects of the Bikram yoga. Pair that with some great music and a bit of poetry and you have a yoga class a là Heidi Toini.”

Yoga to me is...

Calming my mind and finding the connection to my body and breath

 

Words to live by...

“This is the hardest of all things: being yourself and believing it is enough”

paraphrasing Hans Børli

 

Raw is a great place because...

It is home

 

My guilty pleasure...

All things sweet!

 

Best journey ever...

The inner one (but also the hardest)
