Private Yoga Sessions with Heather

Thank you for your interest in private yoga sessions at Aspire Yoga Center! Below you can review my background, and information on pricing and policies.


Heather Delia’s Bio:

Since my first Sun Salutation in September 2001, I have experienced tremendous benefits from yoga — physically, mentally and spiritually. It is my deep desire to help others experience their own benefits from yoga and I’m excited to share my knowledge and passion for the practice with you and other students.

I own Aspire Yoga Center in Bossier City and am an experienced 200-hour and 500-hour Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) with the Yoga Alliance, the industry standard in yoga certification. I completed Ally Ford’s 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training program in 2013. This training provided me with a deeper understanding of yoga, and helped me create a more dedicated personal daily practice. In 2015-16, I completed three separate trainings with Live Love Teach and Free Life People schools of yoga to fulfill and demonstrate all of the requirements of qualification in study, training and practical application for 500-hr advanced yoga teacher certification. I’ve taught roughly 2,500 hours of yoga.


In 2002, I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Leisure Studies with an emphasis in Sport Management from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. In addition to teaching yoga, I teach group fitness classes and am certified as an American Council on Exercise (ACE) personal trainer.


Over the past 20+ years, I’ve had the honor and privilege to practice yoga with instructors at studios all over the world, including: Champaign-Urbana, IL; Scottsdale, Tempe and Phoenix, AZ; San Diego, CA; Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada; Shreveport-Bossier City, LA; Dallas, Fort Worth and Austin, TX; Little Rock, AR; Brevard, NC; Turks & Caicos; Miami, St. Petersburg, Clearwater Beach and Sarasota, FL; Grand Cayman Island, Dominican Republic, Aruba, Costa Rica, Mexico and Bali.
