Olivia got her first taste of yoga when it was a required class for her dance company. Like most forced participation, she loathed those early Saturday morning planks and down dogs (looking back on it now, she understands the hatred sprung from her lack of upper body strength). It wasn’t until she started attending classes at CorePower in college and met other inspiring yogis that yoga began to click. She began to fall in love with the mind-body connection that she was creating within herself that she decided to pursue her 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training in 2015. The strength, balance and growth she has experienced through her practice is something she hopes her students find in her classes.
