The queen of asanas

When I started practicing yoga, I was told to try out as many teachers and schools as I could till I found one I connected with and loved. That's exactly what I did until I met Olive (when the search ended). Her technique is flawless, her teaching style is clear and didactic, and she is able to make you connect breathing, spirituality and movement in a challenging and fun way. I have often come out of her practice walking on air! She is... magical. And oh so much fun. Clearly the best teacher I've ever met.
