Heidi Champney is a lifelong musician and singer with a passion for helping people connect with the innate powers that can be accessed through the singing voice: self-expression, self-awareness, manifestation of intentions, moving and clearing emotions, and access to higher levels of consciousness. Her roots in the Quaker faith cultivated an early awareness of the sacred seed in all beings.She holds a BA in physics from Oberlin College, where she also studied violin, music theory, and music history. Her recent studies in sound healing with Zacciah Blackburn, music improvisation with David Darling, yoga with Deborah Felmeth, and voice with both Deborah Felmeth and Susan Borg have uniquely positioned her for this work.

Heidi also sings with Burlington, Vermont’s premiere Kirtan band, Yogi P and the Funky Shanti.
