About Holos Yoga
My name is Desirée Ouellette and I am the owner of Holos Yoga Studio. In 2010 I chose the name Holos while trying to come up with a name for my yoga studio. Holism (from holos, a Greek word meaning all, whole, entire, total) - A holistic approach to health.
My Story: After dealing with health issues several years ago I found ways to heal naturally. I wanted to do something that helped others in a real tangible way and do something that I love. Practicing yoga has made a huge impact on my life and I wanted to share this gift with others! In 2010 I traveled to Arizona and received my Anusara Inspired 200 hr RYT. In 2011 I traveled to LA to be certified in Live Food Prep (Raw Vegan Chef) and have dabbled in teaching classes locally. In March 2012 I traveled to Southern India to start my 500 hr RYT (advanced teacher training) with my teacher, Tiffany Cruikshank. In Dec. 2012 I received my E-RYT from Yoga Alliance (Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher). In January 2013 I completed a Yoga As Structural Therapy (YST) training with Melonie Neilson. I will be continuing my training with Tiffany Cruikshank in South Africa this Spring, along with other plans to travel to train! I also attend workshops and trainings all over the country.
I took a leap of faith in June 2012 and decided to open my own studio on Commerce so I could offer more classes, privates, and Infrared heated classes. I wanted to open a studio that was warm, inviting and accepting. I also wanted to make yoga available to everyone so I set prices that are affordable. I just love the support and enthusiasm from my students and the community! I appreciate everyone that has come through my doors! You don't have to be flexible or a yoga super star to come to Holos Yoga. I offer group classes, private lessons, workshops, retreats and special request group classes. My hope is that you walk away from my classes feeling refreshed, renewed and a sense of community. Yoga has numerous health benefits and is being recognized in the medical community. I look forward to meeting you and being part of your journey to health!
