SOHA (School of holistic arts) was founded by Olivia Gidman who uniquely combines and integrates conventional and ancient tools for self transformation, on every level, beyond just the physical surface. She is passionate about acting as a catalyst to help you achieve your goals and needs.

"What drives us emotionally and spiritually affects the health of the body. Many of these emotional, psychological, mental and spiritual triggers are what leads to the body suffering and experience stiffness. Suffering and physical pain can't always be avoided but we can fine tune our minds as we tune our bodies and breath. We can start to compassionately listen to what it is we need to work through. We will learn to directly face any limiting beliefs and habits, gain insight into our coping mechanisms, learn to naturally release anything thats is not serving us, and to experience the positive healing powers that yoga, breath, sound healing and massage have to offer."
