O Hi Yoga, located in the historic Olde Town East neighborhood of Columbus, offers vinyasa, or flow, yoga to all regardless of skill level. Owner Heather Sheets’s goal is to break down the barriers that can prevent people from trying yoga, including; cost, time commitment or a fear of the unknown. “O Hi Yoga is for everybody and every body,” says Sheets.
A variety of classes are available. “Beginners” covers the fundamental concepts for newcomers and allows more experienced individuals to brush up on the basics. “Flow” focuses heavily on the breath and movement connection to build strength and flexibility, while “Flex Stretch” enhances flexibility through an increase in the muscular range of motion. Finally, “Restorative” places emphasis on mindfulness through a slower series of asanas, or poses.
The name of the facility comes from a moment of inspiration Sheets had while singing the OSU school song “Carmen Ohio” with her children.
