Hollie Sue Mann came to yoga in her teens and has consistently practiced since the late nineties. Growing up in the theater, she spent many hours singing and dancing, so her early years were marked by experiences using the body as an instrument of performance. Like many, she came to yoga hoping to gain more flexibility and strength. Over time, and after many years of working on a steady and joyful practice primarily comprised of asana, meditation, and service, she has come to a deeper understanding of yoga as a path to freedom and connection with all living creatures. As a teacher, Hollie strives to help students better understand their own needs and how they might be of service to others. She guides a rigorous, dynamic asana practice, sustained by the breath, rad tunes, and high intention. Formally trained in the Jivamukti Method, she has also completed Allison Dennis's Veda Vinyasa 200 hour course and is blessed to have many teachers in her life. Hollie is especially grateful to holy teachers David Life and Sharon Gannon, as well as Yogeswari, Jeffrey Rama Cohen, Jules Febre, and Ruth Lauer Manenti. All of her efforts are dedicated to the animals.
