Olga Flores - Owner/Founder

Olga has run a successful luxury salon for years focusing on excellent customer service. Over the past few years she's struggled with injuries that have kept her from her lifelong love with fitness. During that time she began using Himalayan Salt lamps in her home first to help her daughter deal with general anxiety disorder, then to ease her own symptoms from migraines, then to help her husband's sleep disorders. After falling in love with yoga while using it to help her recover from injuries, she came upon the idea to combine the two! Breathe Salt Yoga and salt therapy provide the perfect mix of inner and outer health. Olga is a certified yoga instructor and is proud to share the benefits of salt yoga with the Bay Area.

Janel Hathaway - Yoga Instructor

Everyone has their own journey with their practice. I came to yoga in search of a sustainable form fitness. Coming from a high impact sport, gymnastics, I know how important it is to cultivate a balanced presence both mentally and physically. 

For me, yoga opened up a direct path to listen to my body in a way I hadn’t previously known. I was surprised after practicing for a few months how much my body was telling me that I had not noticed before. 

And yoga not only opened the door to a more spiritual and mindful way of being in my body, but also opened the door to a wider, supportive community grounded in this beautiful shared practice.

Now, I look forward to sharing the benefits of this practice with as many people as I can.
