Rocky Heron, founder of Yoga with Rocky and YOGAMAZÉ Emissary, is a world-traveling yoga teacher. Known for uncanny wisdom and skillful instruction, Rocky’s teaching is informed by years of study in nearly every yoga style. When not teaching on the road, Rocky works alongside Noah Mazé in formulating meaningful yoga curriculum. Rocky’s students deepen and inspire their practice, while consciously expanding in all directions.

Rocky first found his way to yoga as a teenager when he stumbled into Bryan Kest’s Power Yoga in Santa Moncia, CA. Since then Rocky has dedicated himself to a passionate exploration of the body/mind’s wisdom and innate healing potential, both as a teacher and student. His teaching is informed by years of study in various yoga styles and philosophies, and a constantly unfolding discovery of leading edge anatomical awareness and body mechanics. He offers the gift of yoga through the grace and brilliance of his many teachers: Dharma Mittra, Leslie Kaminoff, Amy Swan, Krista Cahill, Noah Mazé, and many others. Rocky currently resides and teaches in Los Angeles and travels regularly for retreats and workshops throughout the world. Students journey to Rocky’s teaching for the intelligence, playfulness, and potent information contained in each of his classes, and Rocky journeys each day to his mat for the ever expanding layers of bliss and insight that he continues to discover in his practice.

“Yoga strengthens my relationship with myself — I become more strong, kind, and aware of the forces at work within and around me. Teaching allows me to tap into this connection in a way that helps others move beyond perceived limitations. I help my students foster belief and enthusiasm in their own abilities. I am grateful for the opportunity to play in this game of conscious expansion with fellow yogis on the path of ever-increasing joy and well-being.”
