WHAT PEOPLE SAY
''Yogalates is an incredible approach to self-care and wellness. I am delighted to have been able to experience the profound health benefits over time from this amazing practice. Being an Osteopath and mother I am very interested in holistic, effective and safe approaches to optimal health, Yogalates is JUST that! I love the clear instructions throughout the practise and that there are always multiple options to suit your body and your ability. It is the most wonderful way to spend 'me-time' in my week and feels like 2 hours of mind, body, spirit decompression (we all need decompression). I love yogalates! I will absolutely be doing the teacher training at some point in the future, so I can help spread the amazing feeling and health that it brings.''
Also I would like to add that Olive is an exceptional teacher. I enjoy so so much my Saturday mornings at her class! She is very talented in her delivery of Yogalates and has a kind and warm nature. I really appreciate her classes very much! THANK YOU OLIVE :)
