Rocky Heron is an internationally acclaimed yoga educator and musician. Known for his uncanny wisdom and in-depth understanding of yoga anatomy and alignment, Rocky’s teaching is informed by years of study in nearly every yoga style and a diverse background of movement modalities. He discovered yoga in the summer of 2004, and began his path of teaching in 2007. Since then he has dedicated himself to an in depth exploration of the body/mind’s potential for optimal function. Students steep themselves in Rocky’s teaching for his intelligence, humor, and innovative approach to movement, as well as his ability to make complex concepts and abilities accessible. Considered within the industry as a “teachers teacher” Rocky works worldwide facilitating trainings and continuing education for dedicated teachers. He is a contributor to the YOGAMAZÉ curriculum and works closely with founder Noah Maze as a faculty member of the school.

When not on the road, Rocky lives in San Francisco with his partner Micah and enjoys a rich and dynamic creative life with his magnificent tribe of artists and teachers alike. As a musician, years of narrative songwriting and recording helped him develop his distinct style, blending r&b vocals with folk-style acoustic melodies and profound lyrics. Rocky’s workshops and events often feature an offering of live music, weaving together the yogic practices and his unique voice to soothe, mesmerize and inspire listeners. His latest album, “Nuffa Luv” as well as his previous recordings (including his album of Sanskrit mantra, “The Requiem”) can be found online at RockyHeron.com.

“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.”
