WHALE SHARK SWIMMING AND YOGA WORKSHOP
ISLA MUJERES, MEXICO
JULY 21 - 26, 2018
Whale Sharks and Yoga
Swimming with whale sharks is one of the most amazing ocean adventures you can imagine. Off of Isla Mujeres in Mexico hundreds of these sharks arrive every year to feed. And for a couple of months we can swim with them.
We're also combining this adventure with a Yoga workshop run by the amazing Olivia Hsu, world renowned yoga instructor and rock climber. Her instruction will be for all levels of yoga, and you can do as little or as much yoga as you like.
Staying at an exclusive private villa, with our own private chef this will be the ultiamte in adventure and relaxation!
Yoga workshop with Olivia Hsu
Olivia began her relationship with yoga whilst attending law school at the University of New South Wales in Australia in 2000. First a climber and then a yogi she began yoga as part of her curiosity with the art of movement. She naturally gravitated to yoga and has been dedicated to practicing ever since. She thus decided to abandon her legal career and dedicate her time to something she believed would benefit society more than another lawyer! Whilst spending several year as a professional climber Olivia found the practice to be the perfect compliment. Olivia has an in depth study of the Ashtanga Vinyasa tradition having first done a traditional apprenticeship in Australia for several years and then furthered her studies when she moved to Boulder in 2006 with Richard Freeman. In the time that she has been in Boulder she has complete several teacher trainings and advanced trainings with Richard Freeman and Mary Taylor. Olivia has also studied with Tim Miller and has complete his Third Series Teacher training.
Olivia's teachings draw from the knowledge of her own experience as a practitioner and teacher making yoga both accessible and non-intimidating to her students. She also has interest in cultivating the mindfulness that flows from a focused and continuous asana practice. Her teaching style comprises of intuitive hands-on adjustments, energetic alignment and bringing an internal awareness to the self. Olivia feels blessed to have had so many wonderful teachers and hope that she too can cultivate that appreciation of yoga with her students and carry on the thread of the Ashtanga Vinyasa lineage.
Olivia has appeared on the cover of magazines such as Yoga Journal and Rock and Ice, and written about yoga for in publications such as Yoga Journal, Climbing, Back Packer Magazine, and featured in Mantra Magazine and Elephant Journal, among others. She is also has videos featured on the website yogaglo.com
