I was first introduced to the practice of yoga in the fall of 2008. I found that yoga was an amazing way to reenergize physically, mentally, and emotionally. Throughout the first few years of my practice my life began to continually change for the better. Through yoga I found nourishment for my body, mind, and soul. In my yoga classes I try to give back the gifts that yoga has given to me. I offer a variety of modifications and amplifications for each pose, and encourage students to listen to their bodies while they discover their yoga. In class as well as in life I believe one should revel in the falling as well as the flying, it’s the ability to try something new and learn from it that allows us all to find and follow our dreams. I strive to teach my students to take their yoga off of their mats, and into the world, so that they can continue to discover peace and balance in all elements of existence!
Heather Olson instructs the following:
Morning Sanskrit Invocation
Greet the day with a traditional series of Sanskrit chants from the Himalayan tradition. Simply absorb the vibration or learn to chant along. Then settle into ten minutes of minimally guided meditation.
Yoga Bird Flow
This upbeat, mixed-level class incorporates both alignment of the body and vinyasa (breath by breath movement) to help you experience profound benefits in a short time. In this class, you very much design your own experience, with the instructor suggesting ways to slow down and focus on inner awareness or ways to build heat and challenge. The diversity available in this practice is part of what makes it so fun.
