Cohbe enjoys the focus yet openness being on the yoga mat brings her. Her love with both the physical and mental benefits of an invigorating practice led her to complete her 200 hour Vinyasa Teacher Training at The Yoga Garden.   Her curiosity on the mat continues to help her discover new ways to move her body.  New to the team, she’s excited to share her love of yoga with all who come to the Banks!


Heather has combined her love for movement and community by offering virtual and in-person paid and donation based yoga classes through her entity, Phlow & Phloral. She’s earned a 200hr yoga certification focusing on Vinyasa and Power Yoga and has a passion for combining the physical and mental aspects, focusing on breath and presence. Last year, she held local yoga pop-up events and currently offers yoga to the Philadelphia community, friends, families and wedding parties, across the US. Heather’s practiced on The Banks for over 5 years now and is humbled to give back and teach this group!
