About Heather Bauer, Owner of The Shift Studio
I am Heather Bauer and ownership of the studio means fostering an environment of joy, passion and healing for myself and others. I am a mom who is passionate about living well at every age. Through each transition, at each juncture of life, resilience is paramount to how we think, we feel and behave. I love nature, sound, camping, hiking, and being with friends. I have devoted many years to serving the aging population, with specific interest and education for those living with dementia, those who wish to age in place, and their families. As a certified children’s yoga teacher, A Matter of Balance: Concerns About Fear of Falling Master Trainer, Dementia Friendly Business leader, and Caregiver Advisory board member, I intend to continue bridging the gap of multi-generational needs and experiences through movement, restructuring, creativity and connection. I also believe we can facilitate community expression through dialogue about wellness, spirit, and growth in daily living. With trust, truth, intention, and grace we move through the process effortlessly. Follow your bliss!
A native of New Jersey, I have lived in WNC since 1991 with a break in between where I found myself living in Wilmington, NC while I attended UNC-W and was introduced to Yoga there. I have discovered my truest self here in the Hendersonville area and continue to be amazed at the beauty of our mountains and the variety of things to do. Remembering the importance of slowing down, The Shift was a YES, a gift from God really, to me and I contain this space with wholehearted intentions of shifting from the dominant paradigm of fast-paced, busy, and often times externally led lifestyles. I look forward to connecting with you!
