Holly Vasic

Holly Vasic I was born at Hollywood Presbyterian hospital in Hollywood CA and my parents very creatively named me Holly. I discovered yoga when alcohol stopped working. For years I searched for peace and serenity in the bottom of the bottle which led me further and further away from what I was seeking. The principles and practices of yoga have literally saved my life. The best way to keep something is to give it away so sharing what I have found is essential.

Yoga Classes

  • My favorite style of yoga to teach currently is yin yoga. Slowing down and making everything simple can be rejuvenating and satisfying as well as a struggle in our fast paced lives. Simplifying the poses and breathing is how I try and implement those ideas.
  • Teaching restore in a way that is accessible to every level of yogi is important for me and what I try to provide in my restore classes.

And Some Fun Questions

Who have you studied with and who do you consider to be your teachers? Any relevant certifications as well. How long have you been teaching and practicing yoga?
I realized the first time I ever taught yoga was in my first year of college when I was doing an oral presentation on stress/anxiety and part of the presentation was discussing how to reduce it. I was very limited in my yoga knowledge at the time but I had the entire class go through a short simple flow with me. Nine years late yoga teaching circled back around and landed me at the doors of Centered City. I would consider all the staff, past and present, that have taught me something to be my teacher.
