Netled in a small commercial complex at the top of Rose Hill just off 85th, The Ashram Yoga provides its students with much more than a typical hot yoga workout. This facility was custom-designed by owner Gary Olsen, who has been practicing yoga for most of his life. Not only does the simple-yet-elegant plan and design of the studio create a comfortable atmosphere, but also Gary and his instructors set a welcoming tone, greeting and giving each student the personal attention necessary to develop a healthy and enjoyable yoga environment. What's more, the instructors do a superior job of teaching to the whole class, so that each and every student - whether its their first time or they've been practicing for years - has a challenging yet relaxing yoga experience.
Gary's teaching style is the studio's strength, setting it apart from other hot yoga studios in the area. Although each class gives its students an excellent workout, Gary's focus is not limited to physical exercise; mental and spiritual exercise are also an integral part of Gary's classes, as well. As a result, students leave feeling not only that they've had an excellent workout, but more importantly, students leave thse classes feeling refreshed in both mind and body.
