About Gary Olson
Everything you encounter at The Ashram culminates from Gary’s unique life experience. The structure of the yoga sequence is inspired by Gary's many years of yoga practice, as well as his diverse background in martial arts teaching (bringing discipline and structure to the sequence), his meditation training (giving the sequence a focus on the mind and the spirit) and his experience as a musician (instilling a sense of flow to the sequence). All of these factors influenced the choice and order of postures.
How it all began
The Ashram was inspired to create a yoga method designed to optimize the life experience for our society in this current day and age. This unique yoga method attracts hard-core athletes and yoga practitioners of all types. Gary’s personal vision influences each style of yoga taught at the Ashram. All Ashram teachers are trained in his method and are encouraged to explore other certifications and yoga practice experiences.
