Oliver Bell, RYT 500 hr, eRYT 200 hr I first started practicing yoga after a car accident when I was 17 years old. My introduction to yoga was a book by Richard Hittelman’s called the Yoga 28-day Exercise Plan. Over the years I have tried Iyengar, Ashtanga and other Hatha Yogas. I also have a regular meditation practice. I first became certified to teach yoga in 2007. I now study gentle yoga exclusively with Stan Hafner and Johanna Sullivan at Austin Yoga Shala (Austin, Texas). We study postures, sutras and yogic chant. My classes are focused on breathing and movement at the same time. This gentle, balanced practice consists of series of movements coordinated with the breath. Also called viniyoga, this practice supports good concentration, emotional stability and promotes overall health.
