I want to join with you,
Open my heart to you without any expectations
Give you all my love without any conditions
Honour and respect this love and never do anything to harm it
Be strong in my love.
~ Shiva’s Dance of Love
After exploring diverse disciplines (from a Law degree and professional music to Brazilian Ju Jitsu and competitive sports) Olympia felt that Yoga was where everything falls together. Yoga is the place where all knowledge and experience becomes one—a complete unified experience.
Olympia qualified as a Yoga Teacher with Santosha Yoga (YTT 200 hour). During this training, she met her inspirational teacher Peter Clifford. She continued her studies with him for a further YTT200, YTT300 and the Five Elements Form. She is also a qualified massage therapist (Swedish, Thai, Ayurvedic).
Olympia has worked at various yoga centers in London, retreat centers in Greece and Thailand. She runs yoga holidays and workshops, often alongside her teacher Peter Clifford.

About Anahata Yoga
Anahata Yoga is a flowing and holistic style of Hatha Yoga that integrates body, mind, and spirit. Hatha yoga means the union (yoga= to yoke) of sun (‘ha’) and moon (‘tha’). The sun represents the consciousness of Shiva who resides in Sahasrara Chakra in the crown of the head and the moon represents Shakti, the intelligence of the body, which resides in Muladhara Chakra in the base of the spine.
Anahata Yoga offers a meditative and flowing asana practice, named the Dance of Shiva and Shakti. The practice creates vitality and strength, increases flexibility and balance while promoting the natural ability of the body to heal and generate energy.
Anahata Yoga aims to enable each practitioner to find their way to their true potential, coming from a space of love, without judgment or comparison to others.
The Five Elements Form
The Five Element Form is an ancient Yoga tradition. It consists of a sequence of flowing movements, originally designed to energize and strengthen the bodies of people in long hours of seated meditation. The Form draws on the forces of nature, earth, water, fire, air, and akasha, to purify, revitalize the body and help one reach their potential.
Everyone can practice the Form regardless of age, flexibility or strength. No previous yoga experience is needed.
