I have loved and practised yoga for almost 20 years. I love how accessible yoga is, and can be practised anywhere, anytime. But what I treasure most about yoga is the ability to connect to the flow of my breath with or without movement, and calm my mind within just a few minutes. This is what lies at the core my yoga practice and my teaching today.

When I realised that yoga was becoming a life calling for me, I began my teacher training and spent the next nine years studying under some of the most experienced and respected yoga teachers in Western Australia. I developed a strong foundation in various styles of yoga, including Iyengar Yoga, Ashtanga Yoga and Hatha Yoga.

Today, I teach predominantly Hatha Yoga, using a therapeutic approach that meets you at your level of ability. Each time I unroll my yoga mat and guide my students through their yoga practice, I bring together the wisdom I acquired from my wonderful teachers and the knowledge I continue to gain from my ongoing study of human anatomy.

Every week is a little different at Simple As Pi Yoga, as I write my own sequences to support the various ages and abilities of my students. But although the poses may differ from week to week, I maintain a focus on strength, stability, relaxation and the breath. I gently guide my students through each pose, offering cues and variations to enable them to connect with their bodies and to move in a way that is aligned with their needs on that day. It gives me great joy to watch my students progress at their own pace, gaining confidence in their bodies and their yoga practice.

I invite you to join us and discover what a Simple As Pi Yoga practice can look and feel like for you.

Beyond Simple As Pi Yoga

I have personally experienced and witnessed the many transformative effects of yoga on health and wellbeing, and I am endlessly fascinated by the interaction of body and mind. My passion for this work has led me to pursue further studies in internationally recognised yoga therapy teacher training with the Wisdom Institute.  

I am also very passionate about furthering the development of Western Australian yoga teachers, and so I volunteer my time for Yoga Australia,  a national organisation that ensures that the integrity and tradition of yoga are upheld across the country. In my role as State Coordinator, I help facilitate professional development training for all Western Australian yoga teachers.

what people are saying about Heather Robbins

Susan

With an all bodies and all abilities inclusive environment, Heather teaches an accessible class for all! A really warm and inclusive practice that I would recommend to anyone (and everyone!!) I really enjoy Heathers fun and kind energy and find her teaching to be really easy to follow and well explained.

Kathryn

I highly recommend Simple as Pi Yoga! Heather is a fantastic teacher, allowing for different levels from those who have never stepped into a yoga studio before, to those who have had some experience. I love her style and that she helps with suggestions for each posture, giving instructions for those who may be injured or not as flexible or those who are up for pushing themselves a bit more. I probably love the relaxation bit at the end the most, as Heather has introduced us to chanting, meditation techniques, sound bowls and lots of things. Oh, and she also has some equipment people can use, which is ultra handy if you forget something or done.

Emily

Such a wonderful teacher! Heather has created the most relaxed, calm, non-judgmental classes held in a beautifully 'tucked away' space. She caters so well for complete beginners right up to the experienced level, suggesting various options with all poses. As a complete beginner I felt so welcomed. Heather even has spare mats and blocks if you just want to dip your toes in and see what it's like. I never feel judged in her classes (everyone there is just so nice!) and Heather goes out of her way to patiently talk you through each pose to ensure you respect what your individual body can do. I travel a fair distance to get to these classes but it is worth it to have these kind of personalised classes with such a friendly teacher. The optional coffee afterwards is lovely too; building a little community! I highly recommend Simple As Pi Yoga.

Dani

Wonderfully relaxing yoga class. Incredibly friendly environment and such a lovely teacher. Highly recommended

Katya

I have attended two of Heather's classes and I am really surprised about how Yoga can actually be something easy and fun to do on a week day evening. I have been practising on and off during ten years or so and I always encountered teachers and studios that had no patience for beginners, that will not explain the principles of yoga or the basic poses it was simply hit the ground running or else, get lost! With Heather I have found that peaceful space where to practice, learn about Yoga's basics, and truly listen to my body and do what I am able to do on a certain day. I recommend this practice to those that want to reconnect, learn and have a fun time after a full day of work or looking after little kids like myself.

Laila

This is a great yoga class. I attended a weekend retreat and had a great time. I came out of it stretched, relaxed and reinvigorated. Heather's coaching style is calm and relaxed, with lots of options for beginners and not so beginners. I will be signing up to the next retreat and only wish I could attend the Friday morning classes.

Camille

Simple as Pi is a wonderful yoga environment for everyone. Anyone looking for a small class size, intimate interactions, and a caring personalized teacher, Heather is for you. I came to Heather in a cast after ankle surgery. As a dancer I needed an alternate slow moving physical activity that concentrated on self reflection and gave flexibility in ability. She was able to give me alternative ways of moving on the ground or on a chair, and still have an enjoyable experience. Heather is in tune with her students needs and listens to your concerns. She also sets up a very inviting environment that aids in relaxation and reflection.

Kelwin

I had my first yoga class (ever!) with Heather from Simple As Pi. The sessions are run in a neat space with plenty of room to move around. The class had a strong emphasis on breathing techniques, good posture, and balance by having good grounding with your feet. The class felt intimate as Heather took the time to demonstrate each technique, awareness in breathing, and finding an intuitive comfort in each posture I took. She was proactive in watching my positions and offering ways to bring further stability.

Justin

Heather runs classes that suit everyone, and at every level which is so great. Every class is different so its always interesting and youre continually learning. She also has such a wonderful, joyous energy and invests her time and attention with every student, I highly recommend her classes.
