Heather Arnett is a movement educator and performer based in the San Francisco Bay Area. She combines NeuroKinetic Therapy, gait biomechanics, and Structural Integration with Pilates to help clients maximize their movement potential and minimize pain. Heather’s favorite part of her work is helping people find confidence that they didn’t know they had.
An anatomy nerd with an obsession for the Integral Anatomy approach to dissection, Heather is a lab assistant for Gil Hedley at the Institute for Anatomical Research in Colorado Springs and her ongoing study of human forms is a life-long commitment to refining her palpation skills and understanding of the interconnectedness of all the body’s tissues. #somanautforlife
