I’ve lovingly nicknamed our yoga and massage therapy staff members as “Sasquatches”, and it’s about time you meet everyone and their feet!
This weeks Sasquatch is Timothy!
Timothy is our latest addition to the team. He teaches our Ashtanga classes at 5:30 on Tuesday & Thursdays, and co-teaches Ashtanga on Sundays at 1pm.
Timothy moved to Texas from Yorkshire in the North of England in 1980. He has been practicing yoga for over 16 years. He is a certified tennis teaching professional working at clubs mostly in the Houston area, but also in Dallas, and San Antonio.
He has completed 18 marathons and 7 ultra-marathons. Timothy enjoys classical music, cooking, cryptic crossword puzzles, and tatting.
He is RYT-200 yoga teacher certified, and maintains a personal daily ashtanga practice. He has an earth-loving personality and exudes a quiet, calm energy. These traits will help you relax, find your center, and gain peace and tranquility in your hectic life.
What is Ashtanga!?
Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga is a traditional, highly active and dynamic form of yoga. When practiced correctly, it demands a high degree of focus and concentration; generates an internal heat that cleanses and purifies; creates a strong, supple body; and brings clarity to the mind. And those that practice it passionately find the Ashtanga Vinyasa system delivers rapid progress and tangible results.
Come try it out, Sundays at 1pm, and Tuesday/Thursdays at 5:30!
Our first year (plus four months extra) anniversary offering Yoga at Heeling Sole came and went with the Spring Equinox back in March.… time really flew by, not only for that year, but just in the last quarter!
We’ve seen some great growth with our yoga program, experimented with some fun ideas, (anyone remember the Root-Beer bottle “Om” on National Rootbeer Day?!) we played with class and schedule changes, (all of those fun Walkabout outdoor yoga classes!) we tried a Groupon deal… which sorta paid for our new floor … (who remembers when we were still on concrete!? Yah, I broke my toe and decided the concrete had to GO!) and we were honored by the people of San Antonio to vote us as the 3rd best yoga studio in town: what a year, what a surprise! Thank you so much for dedicating time to yourself to get on your mat with us!!
We’re excited to host Kayleigh Miller’s Yoga Tune-Up self massage workshop here at Heeling Sole in Alamo Heights, Texas, happening January 24th, 2015

Most of us live with a certain amount of pain and tension in our tissues. Whether we are athletes, computer users, cross fitters, runners, yogis, or just human, residual soft tissue tightness and discomfort can affect our lives in unpleasant ways. With the help of Yoga Tune Up® Therapy Balls, you will explore all of the micro-regions of your body, from the soles of your feet to your head and neck, and of course everything in between! This work is great for anyone looking to support regular bodywork with self-massage and soft tissue conditioning. No yoga experience required and all levels of practitioners welcome!
Kayleigh is a registered yoga teacher with over 400 hours of training, as well as certification in Yoga Tune Up® and Yoga 4 Cancer®. She began her yoga practice in 2007 at
the suggestion of a musician friend, and hasn’t looked back since. What began as a curiosity developed into a passion for health, anatomy, and injury recovery. She completed her 200 hour teacher training in 2011, under the tutelage of David Vendetti and Todd Skoglund at South Boston Yoga, and has studied Yoga Tune Up® with Jill Miller, Trina Altman, and Sarah Court.
Additionally, as a classical musician, she has a particular interest in preventing performing artists’ injuries, as well as helping students of all ages live better in their bodies.

Based on your requests, our instructor teams availability, and the patterns we’ve seen with our regular students, we’ve added a variety of yoga classes, beginner yoga series, and yoga workshops this year, as well as some amazing massage courses like “Kids Backwalking” and “Couples Massage” for the general public. As always, don’t forget that Jeni teaches big massage workshops once a month, so when those are in session, your yoga moves outdoors! We call them “Walkabouts”, and you can read more about our outdoor yoga in the caves and forests of Alamo Heights here! We’ll list on the online schedule when classes are going to be moved outdoors, if a class had to be cancelled, or if a teacher had to be subsituted, so always be sure to check online, or on our app before you come.
Here’s the new schedule! (Updated 1/6/15)
