    • Review by Amanda Trevelino

      "Learning with Octavia is very real. In classes, she’s known to say, “Yoga’s not a workout; it’s a work in.” But really, Octavia delivers the best of both. Her Power classes are sweaty, challenging, sometimes exhausting, but also thoughtful, inspiring, maybe even healing. Whether she’s teaching restorative Yin or explaining yogic philosophy, she helps students understand the physical practice as a means of accessing deeper truths. Octavia’s personal intelligence and warmth make her an ideal mentor, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to follow where she leads."

      "Octavia is a gift to the Atlanta yoga scene. She is the real deal. She is wise, soulful, deep, and radiant. Her class transports you to a world of compassion, warmth, kindness, and yes, one hell of a work out. My favorite is to take s Saturday double-header of Octavia’s “power hour” followed by “hips, heat and flow.” It gets me every time."

      "Octavia’s classes are filled with strength, peace, meditation and sweat! I find that I truly find strength and understanding when I flow in her class. It has been a great honor to place a mat in a room with her."
