Olga Allon

Olga was working as an architect until 2003. During this time she felt increasingly stressed in all parts of her life and started to feel aches and pains in her body from spending much time in front of a computer. Olga had always loved sport from a young age and tried many types of yoga in her late teens but spent a long time putting off going to a Bikram class. When she finally made it to class she was immediately drawn to the yoga because of the challenge that every class gave her. She very quickly started to feel better abo ut herbody and felt more relaxed.

Olga continued a regular Bikram practice for four years before embarking on her life changing decision to give up her regular job as an architect and trained to become a Bikram Yoga teacher.

Olga's dream was to combine her love of yoga with her love of architecture and design a space where people could come and enjoy this fantastic yoga. 'I feel that at my 3 studios I have created a beautiful retreat for people to get away from the hectic world around them and do something incredibly good for their body and mind.' Olga prides herself on creating warm and friendly studios and brings together a team of happy staff and happy teachers.

Olga believes that Bikram yoga is for everyone, whatever their age, size, body type. Olga is also very much into fitness she spends some of her time blogging for Triathlete's World and Runner's World.

Olga's first daughter, Yasmin, was born in 2005, Skye was born in 2007 and Lily was born in 2009.

Olga has also been honoured in the UK’s first ever Power Part Time list, a prestigious list of 50 of the most senior level part time workers in the UK, recognised on the list as the sole representative of the yoga industry.
