Hillary Hollman moved back to San Juan del Sur in April 2016, and has been teaching at Zen Yoga since then. Before her move, she lived in Atlanta, Georgia, and taught yoga classes and workshops at a local studio, where she also worked as the Studio Coordinator. She is a YA certified teacher, and completed her 200hour yoga training here in San Juan del Sur under the instruction of master yogi Peter Sterios. She is also certified in Restorative Yoga, and enjoys teaching Power Yoga, Yin/Restorative, and Slow Flow classes.
Her teaching style is derived from Hatha, and uses creative, fun, and challenging sequencing and poses to soften and strengthen the whole body during each practice, and to develop a stronger connection between the mind and body. She also uses alignment, breathwork, and hands on adjustments to help students access poses and different areas in the body that they might have thought were challenging or even inaccessible. She believes yoga should be fun, explorative, and challenging for both mind and body, but most importantly that yoga should be, and can be, accessible to every person.
She is grateful to be able to be teaching and living in such a beautiful place in the world, and enjoys getting to teach and connect with so many interesting people that are living and traveling through Nicaragua.
