Everything!

We are a community rooted in the Spiritual Heart. In particular we seek the discovering of our true potential by unveiling the Self within. This is done through yoga, meditation, love, compassion, and gratitude.
This is the path of the Hridaya.

Grace Bryant

Grace Bryant has been a whole life educator for the past 13 years, integrating drama, music, movement, meditation and yoga, mindful living, creative play, teamwork, conscious collaboration and leadership. Her Yogic path began in 2005 when her sister dragged her to a Yoga class in Federal Way. She fell in love with savasana and came back just for relaxation.

In 2007, she was inspired to start teaching informally and since then has studied and taught in 6 countries and devoted her entire life to the journey of awakening. Grace recently completed the Hridaya Teacher Training in Mexico and is beyond grateful to have received the teachings of Advaita Tantra and the Spiritual Heart. She believes these teachings can transform the consciousness of anyone who practices them sincerely.

Grace’s favorite classes are those which deepen our consciousness and also incorporate how to live with more awareness, trust and compassion. She leads classes, discussion groups, workshops, women’s groups, and retreats in the Pacific Northwest and abroad with a focus on bringing a Yogic approach into every area of life. Through Yoga, she has found a deep sense of peace and trust, and hopes to share this in her teachings. More information can be found at her website, www.bewholebehappy.com.

Dianna@HridayaNorthwest.Com

Dianna Heston

Dianna Heston has been known to wander about the world, yet calls Portland, Oregon her home. At the age of 50, with her children grown and on their own and acknowledging her corporate career was not fulfilling, she took off to explore the world and, more importantly, herself. She was lucky enough to be able to travel internationally and do nothing but focus her attention on Yoga, meditation, and Eastern philosophies. Her travels took her to Greece, India, Nepal, Mexico and Thailand, where she spent several months in each location studying with some incredible teachers. This was a transforming time in her life.

Dianna’s passion for yoga has primarily been inspired by the ways in which Yoga supports the process of empowering individuals to progress toward improved health and well-being. Her personal practice and teaching utilizes restorative and therapeutic yoga as the cornerstone for a well-rounded healing process. Dianna has both witnessed and personally experienced how emotional and physical well-being are attainable by employing relaxation, meditation and mindfulness, physical asana, and breathwork. Being able to share the ancient wisdom of the Yogi’s for health and healing causes her heart to burst with Love!

Dianna completed her certifications for Yoga Teacher Training in 2012, and for Therapeutic Yoga in 2014. Both at Agama Yoga in Thailand. She continues her studies in Hridaya Meditation, Mindfulness, and other disciplines.

Britt@HridayaNorthwest.Com

Britt Servent

Brittany Servent is known for her authentic, non-judgmental teaching style and heart-centered philosophy. As a certified Hridaya Yoga instructor she is continuously seeking out philosophical education from various spiritual disciplines.

Britt weaves thought-provoking meditations throughout her classes, applying ancient wisdom to our contemporary western world in a useful and playful way. She encourages growth of the physical and spiritual self, citing the interconnectedness to each other, to the world and to the universe at large. She brings her own introspection and contemplation to the mat and holds whatever may unfold to her with a sense of gratitude. This is the same attitude she lives by in daily life as well. Her favorite saying is “Life is a conundrum of esoterica.” And so it is. Yet here we are navigating our life puzzles like there was something to accomplish…

Who We Are Not...

So many Misconceptions...

This western world is fraught with the misconceptions that you must look or be a certain way to practice yoga. Thankfully Hridaya is a practice built on a spiritual lifestyle that embodies you on an integrative holistic level.

Forget the stereotypes of what you may think looks like a “true” yogi. We are human. We make mistakes. We live messy lives. Acknowledging our humanness allows us to connect to fuller dimensions of ourselves, which is the nature of the Tantric path. 

All body types, genders, races, sexual orientations, religious beliefs and abilities are welcome to dive into the heart of what we call Hridaya. We practice yoga to realize our liberated nature, our True Self and every human is welcome. Our goal is not to become a Lululemon model, but to find our inner smile.
