A Fresh start to fitness

Heidi Malano

  

I am a certified yoga teacher, group fitness instructor and personal trainer. While I love motivating others to reach their fitness goals, in 2006, I decided to reach a personal fitness goal, which was to make it to the stage of Ms. Fitness USA. I continued to compete for five years and was encouraged to try different training regimens to achieve the results I wanted for a strong and healthy body. While I discovered how to be strong on the outside, it wasn’t until 2011, when I discovered yoga and began to understand what it was to truly be healthy on the inside, too. I fell in love with the practice on and off the mat and earned my 200-hour certification, so I could begin sharing and teaching something I admired so much. In 2012, I created Yoga Kicks®, a special exercise program to enhance a yoga practice. Yoga Kicks® helps to develop core and abdominal strength to assist with arm balances and inversions; create muscular endurance and stamina to assist with the body’s ability to not fatigue as quickly when holding poses or flowing; and to build upper body strength, which is not as easy to achieve in a yoga-only regimen. In 2015, I earned another 300-hour certification with renowned teacher John Salisbury. My yoga classes definitely include a bit of fitness, while still staying true to the beautiful practice.
