About Olivia Lifsey, 500ryt

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, through Village Yoga and Wilmington Yoga Center with her teachers Jess Moody and Kristin Cooper, Olivia was offered a full time teaching position at Village Yoga, in Duck North Carolina. 

Since moving to the Outer Banks, Olivia has completed a SUP yoga teacher training, became certified at hands on assisting with Noelle Whittington, studied Barre with Denise DeCarlo, and completed a year long Ayurvedic Lifestyle Coaching program led by internationally recognized Ayurvedic Practitioner Katie Silcox. 

In 2019 Olivia offered Svastha, a yoga and ayurveda retreat, and fell in love with the combination of wellness travel, sharing ayurvedic wisdom, and connecting with people in a retreat style container. She believes that the experience of retreating to self explore, deepen your spiritual practice, and get out of the day to day routines can provide deep healing and positive change. 

Olivia is currently enrolled in another year long Ayurveda education program, and continues to deepen her knowledge of ayurveda and yoga. 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.
