Olivia Lifsey

In 2013 Olivia attended Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado where she received her Bachelor’s degree in Traditional Eastern Arts with a concentration in Yoga, as well as completing over 1,000 hours of yoga teacher training. Upon graduation in 2015, Olivia registered with Yoga Alliance and began her teaching career while traveling throughout Central America, and in her hometown of Chagrin Falls, Ohio.


Olivia came to the Outer Banks in 2016 to complete the Kunga Yoga Lifestyle Program, a program dedicated to educating yogis how to use their practice as service for others. After completing the Kunga program, Olivia was offered a full-time teaching position at Village Yoga, in Duck North Carolina.

Olivia’s yoga classes are inspired by dance as she likes to include funky transitions and challenging shapes we typically don’t put our bodies into every day. While she loves physical play time, her classes are grounded in spirit and will include pranayama and meditation practices.

Since moving to the Outer Banks, Olivia has completed SUP yoga teacher training, became certified in hands-on assisting with Noelle Whittington, studied Barre with Denise DeCarlo, received her Reiki I certification, and is a certified Ayurvedic health coach.

Inspired by her own lifelong healing journey, Olivia is dedicated to educating and empowering others to learn how to heal themselves through Ayurveda, mindful movement, and self-love. 

Olivia is currently accepting coaching clients to work with her 1 on 1 through an Ayurvedic health lens.
