OLIVIA RYDER

Olivia began yoga with her mother when she was young - an alternative to her school’s After School Program that she soon came to love. Using the mobility, breathing techniques, and skills she learned in yoga, she branched out into other sports: soccer, tennis, skiing, climbing, and ultimate frisbee. Olivia recommitted to yoga as an apprentice with Abby Vakay to learn more about the philosophical lineage and deeper challenges of a yoga practice. She completed her 200 hour certification with Abby in the fall of 2021. Olivia loves yoga on the beach and learning the Sanskrit used in teaching.
