A Bit About Our Studio

Dave and Cheryl Oliver

Dave Oliver and Cheryl Oliver
Authentic Yoga & Authentic Yoga Teacher Training was created by Dave & Cheryl Oliver in 2010. Our practice, teaching and philosophy is based on presenting students with direct experiences of yoga, and to make the practice applicable and accessible all. Our foundation and first love is the astanga vinyasa system, and we honor all schools and systems. We encourage students to read, to contemplate, to question, to challenge our preconceptions, to refine our physical practice, to expand our minds, and to open our hearts. Dave made his transition in November, 2014, and while his physical presence is no longer with us, his spirit & his legacy live on.

Offerings include:

  • Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga in the Tradition of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois
  • Other Physical Styles of Yoga Asana
  • Vedic Chant
  • Sanskrit Language
  • Yoga Philosophy, Including the Yoga Sutras

We also offer:

  • Yoga Alliance 200-hour and 300-hour yoga teacher trainings
  • Studio Rental Space
  • 200-hour Teacher Training Retreats in Ecuador
  • Workshops and Trainings at other Studios
