In 2021 I completed my Masters in Psychology from University of Glasgow and moved to the Isle of Arran! I had been dreaming of the place for a few months and in my dreams, Arran appeared like Avalon, the mythical Kingdom from Arthurian legends. A few months later I travelled to another island paradise a little further south, Zanzibar. Dwelling upon the Atlantean and Lemurian islands fuel my intuitive, creative and healing approaches.
I began my career with a first class honours degree from the University of Edinburgh in Physiology (the systems of the body) and 15 years experience in the clinical research world including as Director of Global Clinical Operations, helping to bring novel treatments in neurology, oncology, cardiology, rare genetic indications amongst others to market. A personal Pluto return (transformation!) and further studies since 2015 in Psychology, Yoga, Qi Gong, Reiki and nature based therapeutics have reinforced the necessity for a holistic approach for full body, mind and spiritual health.
I utilise a 6-step body, mind, spirit map 'The Voyage' that I channelled from my own alchemical process to encourage embodied, intuitive transformation into the lives of my clients, running online courses and retreats throughout Scotland and beyond collaborating with other great teachers and outdoors enthusiasts.
I have been practising yoga for 11 years in Seattle, USA and the UK and have led sessions on both sides of the Atlantic completing teacher trainer qualification with the Classical Yoga School and further 500 hours training with my personal yoga, reiki and medication coach, Yogi Kaivalyananda.

'You're pretty badass, you know that?? Xxx' 'Thank you for such a truly magical weekend!!! I LOVED it!' Heather Ashley Thomson - Naturopathic Doctor
'So lovely to spend such a special weekend with a cool bunch of strong, intelligent and focused women, taking on the world in all sorts of ways. I hope our paths cross at some point in the future, and that we can all enjoy some sort of 'retreat legacy' over the coming days, weeks (and possibly months!) Massive thanks to Heather for your skill in teaching, as well as your insight during the one-to-ones. Each of the sessions in the studio and the tipi felt just right for me at each point in the weekend. Hope to retreat with you again next year.' &
'I LOVED this retreat at the beautiful Dell of Abernethy in the Cairngorms last year and am going again this October. Hosted by amazing and inspiring teachers, and the best accomodation and food, I came away feeling better about myself and more hopeful for my mental, physical and spiritual health than I have for a long time.' Lindsay Finnie
'Did I tell you I am starting a Masters in wildlife management and conservation and plan to change into a conservation career thereafter with a possible move to XXX when the kids leave school. The time at the yoga retreats and the chats about making changes in my life have been well spent!' &
'Just home from the most amazing trail running / yoga retreat. Feel absolutely blissed out. There is nothing that could have been better about the retreat. Beautiful surroundings with soul-nourishing food; lots of new experiences; Heather’s wonderful yoga, Qi Gong, Reiki and encouragement; inspiring company. Thank you Heather - very highly recommended.' Louise McLaren, GP
'Attended Heather and Lindsay’s amazing weekend yoga and biking retreat at The Dell of Abernethy this weekend and it was a truly inspiring experience! Fantastic teachers and a superbly organised weekend in a breath-taking setting. I did not want it to end! Thank you so much 😊'. Tanya Paxman.
'Thanks for a wonderful weekend, Heather. I've only praise to give you all. (The retreat) really inspired me - I'm literally just back from a run and am managing a bit of yoga each morning. My favourite bits were yoga in the tipi and the fire pit, that was amazing. I love getting out on the longer run too. I was so inspired by Polly's food, I've gone and ordered those cook books. Thanks again.' Cerian Baldwin.
'Thanks again Heather for the first session this afternoon, I enjoyed enjoyed the experience and for some reason I was singing along with the radio on my car journey home! Not done that in a while 😊. Looking forward to further exploring the benefits of yoga and your sessions.' G Lindsay, Managing Director at Hansel Charity.
'Thanks Heather, our session makes me feel like I can trust myself and things will be ok, so encouraging! Keep doing what you are doing, I am sure you will help many people.' Lorna Russell.
'I actually feel brilliant today so I think the weekend was exactly what I needed' &
'Starting with small things like keeping a daily gratitude journal and imagining certain feelings, to then more “soul searching” activities such as looking into mirrors (gosh that was an emotive session) to creating vision boards. One thing led to another and I found myself hooked on yoga and pranayama breathing exercises. The course led to a total lifestyle transformation for me and subsequently I notice that my productivity, focus and motivation during office hours have also significantly improved.
