Mike Camp - Yoga Teacher
Mike Camp found his way to yoga at the suggestion of a neighbor who loaned him a yoga basics video. He immediately fell in love with the stretches, the calm soothing meditative flow and the rich heritage of yoga. It was not long after he started practicing with the videos that he discovered All People Yoga Center. He quickly dove into the varied class offerings, made fast friends of students and teachers alike and looked for ways to further his interest in yoga.
He assisted Nancy Schalk in her vinyasa classes from 2004 through 2008. In 2005, Mike completed the Yoga Teacher training Class offered by Nancy and Ann Miller. He was fortunate to find a teaching job immediately upon completing the class and has truly found a new passion in his life.
Mike’s Friday night Yoga class is a fairly eclectic vinyasa flow with a mix of more modern music and emphasis on corrections and adjustments throughout the practice. When Mike is not teaching, he is busy taking photos of yoga classes and has just recently produced a Morning Vinyasa Video features Nancy Schalk and a class of All people Yoga students and staff. Mike and his wife Patty have been married for 28 years. They have three children; David, Katie and Ben.Breathe. Flow. Let go. Namaste!

Olga Imperial Keegan
Olga Imperial Keegan - Yoga Teacher
Olga’s youngest son, Ian, introduced her to yoga in 2013, the year before he left for college and emptied her nest. After 15 invigorating years of teaching Jazzercise fitness classes, she longed for something more to share with others. She fell in love with yoga philosophy, the fluidity and challenge of vinyasa class, the connection of movement to the breath, and the serenity she felt after yoga practice. Her spirituality became deeper as a result of daily yoga and meditation.
Olga has studied ballet from preschool age to adulthood, was a gymnast in high school, and has been a runner since college. All these disciplines helped her learn to teach the intricacies of yoga asanas and the art of yoga flows with the added dimension of cueing proper alignment and placement of the body for a safe, comfortable practice. Her classes offer fluid movements that integrate the breath and mind while challenging the muscles and body. Like a dance, she enjoys being creative when preparing her vinyasa classes. Olga’s flows have a theme that focuses on several of the chakras with the intent that everyone who takes her classes will leave with a calmness and centering that carries over to daily life.
“When it comes to yoga, I will always be a student first, learning from other teachers and yoga practitioners.” This is Olga’s belief and she is reminded of this each day.
Olga and her husband, Don, love to travel and explore the world and the outdoors. They have 4 grown children: Taylor, Luke, Ian and Alaina. When she is not practicing yoga, Olga has a busy real estate career.Breathe. Flow. Let go. Namaste!
