Chris Olstrom

Chris started practicing Bikram Yoga in early 2007 after years of long distance running left him with horrible back pain and "beaten up" knees. Like most first time students, he walked into that first class not knowing what to expect. After the challenge and exilaration of that very first class, Chris was hooked! It didn't take long for him to start enjoying the healing benefits of his Bikram practice as his pain and stress levels diminished. . His knees and back felt better and he had found a new cardio workout to replace running. Inspired to share what he had discovered with others, he made the decision to become a teacher. In Fall of 2008 he completed the Bikram teacher training program in Acapulco, Mexico and began teaching in studios all over Long Island, queens and NYC. As his own practice grew, so did his desire to explore other styles of yoga. Intrigued with the flowing style of vinyasa, Chris went on to complete a 200 hour vinyasa training in 2013 at LifePower yoga in Syosset, NY and now teaches both styles with his distinct flair. Chris loves nothing more than guiding my students through a challenging asana practice, to build healthy and strong minds and bodies - helping them to lead stronger and healthier lives.

Harley Norton

"Harley felt an immediate connection with yoga when she took her first class five years ago. Although she recognized that it was much more challenging than she imagined, physically and mentally, she was drawn to continue on and learn more. She didn’t know why at the time, but she knew this was going to become a regular part of her lifestyle and not just a pastime or hobby.

Harley completed a 200hr intensive training in Tantric Hatha Yoga at Blue Osa in Costa Rica in 2016, but since has taken to Ashtanga yoga as her daily practice. She studies extensively at home and around the world, dedicating her life to being a forever student. Harley knows that there is not one cookie cutter type of yoga because everyone is different in body, mind and spirit. She teaches vinyasa, hatha, ashtanga, kids and chair yoga, and her aim is always to make the practice accessible to all levels and types of people. Yoga is for everybody, and she wants you to feel that and believe it!"
