Heidi Pascual
My yoga journey began in 2009 and since that time, my soul journey has been beautifully transformed. I have a successful full-time career, sharing Vinyasa Flow Yoga classes, workshops, festivals, worldwide retreats and yoga community. My twenties were dedicated to exploring our exquisite world in the wild of Africa, the colour of South America and Costa Rica, the exotic tropics of Asia, the culture of India, Sri Lanka and the Himalaya of Nepal. Experiencing the beauty of our world from sunrise to sunset, I fell head over heels, enamoured with life. I married my Peruvian husband in the Andes of Peru and returned home after a decade of discovery. I found life distant and disconnected on my return to the U.K, as if the world had lost its colour. It was then that I discovered yoga.
