Heather Johnson

Heather Johnson wants every child (in Calgary and area to start) to experience the benefits of a regular yoga practice regardless of age, ability or demographic. She is an enthusiastic leader looking to inspire other teachers, yogis and parents to help her accomplish her mission.

A compassionate, fun and energetic yoga teacher, Heather is the owner of Yoga Playground as well as founder and partner of Mandala Kids Yoga. She teaches yoga to children and teens aged 3 - 18 at school, in community programs, studios and at Mandala Kids.

Heather has maintained a dedicated yoga practice for more than a decade. She is a Registered Yoga Teacher through Yoga Alliance and received teacher training at United Yoga of Montreal, Yoga Mandala, Rainbow Kids Yoga, and Yoga Kids as well as workshops in Acro Yoga. In 2011, Heather became Yoga Ed.'s first working teacher in the Calgary area.

Aside from yoga, Heather is an avid skier and cyclist. She has been writing a column for the online parenting magazine, SavvyMom since 2007. Heather is a bonafide soccer mom (minivan and all) of three unique and active kids ranging from preschool to preteen who love to play yoga with her in class and at home.

The daughter of two teachers, Heather was raised appreciating the value of education. She holds a Bachelor of Professional Arts in Communications from Athabasca University and a Diploma in Radio and Television from the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology.

Heather is always looking for new and unique ways to expand her knowledge and skills through the many talented kids and adult teacher training programs in Calgary and beyond.
