Bob Hiemstra


Bob took his first yoga class in 1998. It was given in a friend’s backyard in the shade of a large oak tree. He didn’t have a mat, beach towels were spread out on the grass. That began the journey that has led to this moment.

Bob is incredibly grateful to his many teachers, Cindi Lee, Sharon Gannon, David Life and all of the wonderful teachers at the Jivamukti Yoga School. He completed his 200 hour teacher training in 2014, studying extensively with James Kigar, Judy Weaver, and Tammy Heckman at Yoga South.

His classes blissfully align breath with movement. They are focused, flowing, and fun. Bob sets his classes to an eclectic soundtrack and encourages his students to make the practice their own. He finds what we encounter on our mat is a mirror to how we approach what we encounter throughout our lives.

Bob and Caroline first met when teaching together at the same studio in Palm Beach, Florida. Caroline is thrilled to welcome Bob as a guest teacher to the island. You can find Bob at the Island Community Center where he will be leading the Friday evening Vinyasa Level 1/2 class during the summer months
