Vishwam Heckert

Originally from Iowa, Vishwam emigrated to Scotland around 25 years ago. He wrote his PhD at the University of Edinburgh on anarchism and sexuality, partly as a way to deal with immigration. Vishwam went on to train in various healing arts including yoga and now loves to bring together his passions in creative ways to help others. He currently lives in Shetland where he teaches yoga, creative writing, mediation skills & self care courses online and, when possible, in person. You can find out more at or follow him on Instagram
