Meet Our Teachers - Part 5 - Olive
Born - USA
Birthday - October 6th
My name is Olive and I am an expat from the United States. I have been studying yoga for over 7 years through several modalities - vinyasa, yin/restorative, hatha, and bikram, but I mainly offer vinyasa and restorative yoga. I have earned a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Alliance Certification in Karma Yoga. The exploration and integration of Karma yoga in my daily life nurtures and aligns with my work in social services. I have worked in social services for the last 6 years and therefore, in my yoga practice incorporate and move from a client-centered, trauma informed, and anti-oppression framework. As they say, "we have issues in our tissues", and through breath and movement in a safe environment, I believe we can release and grow.
I feel honored to be able to support my students in this. Yoga is a vessel of self love and exploration which extends beyond the mat; where we can learn to deepen our radical self acceptance and love together in order to bring light into the world. I believe in creating accessibility and inclusion, and that honoring yourself is the truest and full expression of a pose. As a karma yogi, I understand yoga as a means within the interconnection of not only the mind, body, and soul but community, earth, and infinite.
