Meet Your Hosts


Heather Rice

Heather (she/her) came to her mat in late 2019, to improve her mental & physical health and was surprised to find so much more! Yoga led Heather to look within & become familiar with herself on a deeper level, allowing her to live her life out loud and encourage others to do the same.

Heather completed her 200 YTT at The Light Within in West Grove, PA in 2022 and will be completing a second Vinyasa based 200 YTT in June of 2023. Her passion for making yoga classes accessible and to people of all shapes, sizes, and walks of life grows by the day. Heather’s classes always include the use of props/variations to make the poses work for your unique body as well as offer a safe space to come to your mat and simply be. She encourages you to connect with your body, on and off the mat, checking in with your own needs & responding in a nourishing way.


“When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be. When I let go of who I am, I receive what I need.” - Lao Tzou


Billie Wiant

Billie received her first Yoga class as a Valentine’s Day gift, but the gift Yoga gave back she enjoys sharing with all. As a lifelong hair stylist, she was looking for a new direction- while still connecting with others and Yoga gave her that opportunity. After getting her friends, family and husband to attend classes too, Billie realized her calling to teach yoga.

"In my class you will find a safe place to let go, a smiling face, a non-judgmental teaching style and a warm environment. Yoga is freedom and acceptance. My goal is to help others find this space so that they can move their bodies through life with compassion and joy. Welcome to your mat, Welcome home." - Billie

Wellness with Nature

Resting on 150 acres, River Mountain is bordered by Sweet Root Creek, Warrior Ridge and Tussey Mountain. River Mountain's stunning spaces are designed for reflection, mindfulness, and good vibrations on your self-care journey. Creekside yoga platforms, a restored barn turned wellness space, and the calm of nature make this the ideal destination for peace and wellness.

Located just a few hours from D.C., Baltimore, and Pittsburgh, in the mountains of Pennsylvania, River Mountain is remote yet easy to access.


Warrior Path

Running parallel to River Mountain's eastern ridge is Warriors Path, the great Iroquois Indian highway from Six Nations country, New York, to the Catawba country in the Carolinas. The historic path along Sweet Root Creek was one of the longest and most heavily traveled land routes in eastern North America, connecting Indigenous peoples over hundreds of miles.

The Underground Railroad

Black Valley was an active route along the Underground Railroad. Local histories principally credit four, free black residents with leading the aid network in this area: Rev. John Fidler, Elias Rouse, Joseph Crawley, and James Graham. Just to the south of the River Mountain property are 13 unmarked graves of enslaved people who died traveling the route to freedom.
