Grisel Olivo

Grisel first discovered the science and philosophy of Yoga with her first Yoga teacher, Amanda Zapanta, in late 2006.  She experienced yoga as a system of personal transformation that takes the spiritual beyond religion making it a universal tool for self-discovery and development. In 2009, Grisel graduated as a Certified Yoga Instructor from Sonic Yoga in New York City. Her goal as a teacher is to allow her yoga studies, modern psychology, and life experience to gravitate towards a holistic style that encourages students to enter a wholesome, safe, and playful realm of self-awareness.  Grisel strongly believes that when the body, mind, and heart are in balance one naturally gravitates towards one’s true nature and contentment. As founder of the Yoga in the Park initiative (YIP) she hopes to extend the benefits of Yoga to the Upper Manhattan community unbound by race, age, or income.
