About Me

Yoga Instructor

VIv Woolley

Viv  is a Certified Yoga Therapist through the International Association of Yoga Therapists (C-IAYT) and is a Registered Yoga Teacher through Yoga Alliance as an E-RYT 200 and RYT500.  Viv offers instruction to beginners and intermediate students but advanced students can gain much from her alignment-focused Hatha Yoga instruction. With an eye toward applying the therapeutic uses of yoga including back care, heart and organ system wellness, stress management, as well as adaptive yoga for Multiple Sclerosis, arthritis, and the asymmetric body, her training and instruction can assure students that they may be welcomed, comfortable, and safe during her instruction.

Viv holds great admiration and love for her teacher, Lillah Schwartz, of Yoga with Lillah Transformation Yoga Teacher TrainingTM (formerly, Lighten Up Yoga Teacher Trainings) in Asheville, North Carolina, with whom she trained for both the 200-hr and 500-hr levels.  She is especially grateful to her students, all of whom are her greatest teachers.

NOTE: The yoga therapy components of my teaching are based on my C-IAYT status, not derived from my status as an E-RYT200 and/or RYT500 with Yoga Alliance Registry.”

What my clients
say about me

She helped me work on healing where I was weak as well as taking advantage of my strengths to help me remain positive in a difficult time. I honestly don't think I would be where I am now if I had not used Viv.

To this day, I use Vivian's teachings to control my breathing problem caused by my injury. She is very thorough and thoughtful in her approach to not only the therapeutic benefits of yoga but in all of her yoga teaching.
