Heidi Kristoffer is a yoga instructor who leads workshops and retreats all over the world, and part of the management and creative team at Strala Yoga in NYC. She is a true believer that yoga cures: lengthening and strengthening through yoga helped heal a herniated disc in Heidi's cervical spine and prevented surgery on two broken vertebrae in her lumbar spine. Stemming from her desire to use yoga as a tool to heal and strengthen the body, Heidi maintains an intense focus on core integration and alignment and believes that playfulness is vital--always balancing strength with levity.  

Heidi leads a vegan lifestyle and is always looking for the most delicious and nutritious ways to fuel and re-fuel pre- and post-yoga.
