Samantha Fox Olson was fully certified in Anusara yoga and holds the highest certification offered through Yoga Alliance. Her classes are heart-centered, alignment based, and evoke an enthusiastic love for being in our bodies.
These classes are appropriate for raw beginners and attention to foundational alignment is emphasized and encouraged. These classes move slowly and are full of all the tools that allow a practice to flourish and a body to be held in radiant alignment. In the beginner vault of yoga videos you can expect to find: -basic yoga pose tutorials -gentle yoga practices -beginner yoga class series that build upon one another These classes are great for raw beginners and seasoned practitioners who understand the value of coming back to the basics at times.
These classes are instructed with plenty of verbal and visual cues for a wide-level of practitioners to participate. These classes move faster than the videos in the beginner yoga vault of videos, but still offer beginner variations to the more intermediate or advanced poses. This welcomes the practice up to a variety of levels, and at the same time can greatly inspire a beginner practitioner with seeing what else is possible over time as one cultivates a consistent practice. There are more poses instructed and explored in all-levels than in beginners. Listen for the modifications and stay at a level-appropriate place for yourself.
These classes are put together for the seasoned yogi. Here we explore arm balances, inversions, deeper backbends and hip openers than we have in the beginners and all-levels vaults of videos. These classes are most appropriate for those yogis/yoginis who have yoga experience and wish to deepen their practice with alignment based practices that are fun, life-affirming and challenging.
WE ALSO OFFER
Yoga for Children
Samantha has designated a place in iLoveYogaAndFitness for our keiki (Hawaiian for children)!
As a parent we are our child’s #1 influence. They watch our every move. Because you will actively be using the adult workouts, your child will naturally become interested in yoga and fitness too. How cool is that?!
With that in mind, Samantha wishes to help you cultivate a love for being in our miraculous bodies with your child. These classes are playful, fun, short and sweet. Each lesson has a theme such as handstand play or wild animals.
There are lessons appropriate for children ages 3 and up. Some of the activities in the lessons include:
- Playful Fitness Activities
- Basic Gymnastics Tumbling
- Creative Dance
Your child will find great joy in being creative in their bodies along side of other children! Make some room, the keiki are coming though.
Samantha Fox Olson takes her 28 years of fitness experience and blends some of her favorite disciplines from: yoga, strength training, dance, plyometrics and more to create sweaty fun fitness workouts with a flair never offered until now.
These classes build strength, tone the body, burn fat, get your heart pumping and infuse a love for working out and moving our bodies! Some classes focus specifically on a certain muscle group (upper body, lower body, etc) while some train the entire body.
Some classes use only body weight, and others hand weights. The class descriptions under each video will let you know what each class offers. They are all incredibly unique!
These classes are perfect for the true beginner. Some of them will be more physically challenging than others, yet all are designed with a newbie in mind. They move slowly in comparison to the other levels and at the same time encourage you to challenge yourself. Beginner fusion classes are taught with a solid foundation of alignment to help you learn the basics with great skill and understanding. These videos are great for true beginners to fitness and for those that appreciate coming back to the basics every now and again.
These classes are appropriate for beginner level students without injuries to advanced athletes. Even in the modification mode, these classes move faster than the classes in the beginner vault of classes. Samantha offers modifications for beginners to stay in low intensity and low impact at the same time she guides the more seasoned practitioner into high intensity/impact. Listen to your body’s needs; listen for the cues and take the modifications when needed. These practices are challenging and fun!
These practices are intense and include plenty of high intensity and high impact exercises. In these practices Samantha will not be giving modifications, so these classes are only recommended for those that are very in tune with their body and for those that have experience going big.
