About Olya

My Yoga journey started in India in 2001, where I lived for 3 years. During my time in India, I completed 200 days Teacher Training in Mumbai at the Yoga Institute. After having two children, I felt that I wanted to bring Yoga to kids and found inspiration after taking Children’s teacher training course with Jo Manuel at the Special Yoga Centre In London, followed by a Therapeutic Yoga Program for children with developmental challenges. I taught mums and their children for four years in the local Children Centre In Greenwich Borough before opening my own yoga studio, AMOR Yoga in 2013.

When I teach general adults classes, I like combine the classical Hatha yoga that I learned in India with Vinyasa Prana Flow style practiced by my dear teacher Shiva Rea.

Several years ago life took me on the voyage of Pregnancy yoga and since then my days are filled with the miracle of conception, pregnancy and birth stories and a desire to share the knowledge and help empower women on this amazing journey into motherhood.

My wonderful teachers who helped me to experience the natural power of pregnancy and birth with Yoga, Ayurveda and Hypnobirthing are Hollywood’s pregnancy Guru Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa , Katy Appleton at Appleyoga, Francoise Freedman of Birthlight, Uma Dinsmore Tuli, my Ayurveda teacher Dr. Deepa Apte at AyurvedaPura, Katharine Graves of KG Hypnobirthing and Claire Chaubert, independent midwife and homeopath. They are mums, authors of several books and women of great wisdom. Thank you for being the lights in my life.

 

In September 2017 I have moved with my 3 children to Bristol and has taken some time off teaching  to settle in our new home and life.
