Biography

Heidi Blais is a self-taught balance artist and teacher specializing in acroyoga, hand-to-hand and slackline/ highline. With a BA in architecture from UC Berkeley, she draws on her design sense and creative processes to compose with the human body. She has produced numerous original partner choreographies, mixing techniques from acroyoga, hand-to-hand and contact improvisation. Heidi's passion for handstands has brought her to train with accomplished handbalancers and teachers such as Claude Victoria, Miguel Santana and Naël Jammal. She enjoys pushing her personal boundaries, and in 2018 and 2019, Heidi traversed the world-record highlines, measuring 1.9 and 2.0 km in length, respectively. Aside from her personal disciplines, Heidi loves empowering people to move. Her workshops aim to facilitate states of joyful embodiment where people feel safe to explore. She has taught at partner acrobatics conventions worldwide since 2012. Nevertheless, Heidi’s roots are in yoga. In 2012, she completed a 325-hour yoga certification with Ashtanga Yoga Montreal. Ever since, she has been actively co-teaching the annual AcroYoga Montreal Teacher Trainings in Europe and North America. Born in California, based in Montreal, Heidi communicates clearly in English, Spanish, French and German. She speaks limited Dutch, Polish, Mandarin Chinese and decent Italian.
