Nominated for: BEST Yoga Studio
Mimi Loureiro created O2 Yoga in 1998 as a distinctive and unique yoga practice. O2 Yoga balances many principles of Astanga Yoga with a more creative and less predictable vinyasa-flow format. The result is an athletic and peaceful, invigorating and calming, fun and challenging yoga experience. Like Astanga, O2 Yoga uses heat-generating sequences of postures or asanas, and a mind-focusing breathing technique. Differing from traditional Astanga, O2 Yoga offers a varied sequence of postures with a creative flow, personalized to meet the experience, needs, and desires of students. The primary goal of O2 Yoga is to empower students, allowing them to feel and experience full self-acceptance, outer strength, and inner calm. Mimi's unique style supports students as they learn to trust their intuition and fully embrace their life no matter where they are personally, mentally, physically, or spiritually.
