As we flow through the rhythm of life we must turn inward and connect to our body, mind, and spirit. I am honored to bring OMNI STUDIO to the community of Morro Bay. I truly believe that movement and dance can transform the way we live and see ourselves in the world. It’s a blessing to share my knowledge of yoga and dance with each and every one of you and to be able to create a space where we can all grow into our own practice together yet individually. In my youth I studied Ballet and learned a deep awareness of physical movement and kinetic mobility. I began my yoga practice as a teenager and it has not only taken me on a path to physical health but has shown me a new way of living everyday life to its full capacity. Studying both the mind and body has tremendously strengthened my awareness on how thought patterns affect the nature of our physical well-being. Bridget Riley is a certified yoga instructor from San Luis Obispo, California and she graduated from Antioch University with a BA in Psychology.
