Welcome Roople to the Om Land Family!  

Roople Unia

Roople Unia is a lifelong yogi and is also a Neurologist with subspecialty training in Stroke and Movement Disorders.  She thus appreciates the underlying science of yoga and its effect on the nervous system.  She has experienced many different styles of yoga in different parts of the world but trained as a Sri Sri Yoga teacher due to its holistic approach and joyful spirit. She enjoys keeping physically active by rock climbing, hiking, skiing and running. She finds yoga an excellent complement to these activities for improving strength, flexibility, balance, and for injury prevention.  She also finds in yoga a reprieve from daily stresses, and a way to care for herself so she can care for others.

Katie Quirk has joined the Om Land Yoga family!  

Katie Quirk is a writer who, when not at her desk, loves to move: she danced for 15 years, runs along and swims in the Stillwater River, and considers her afternoon well spent if she can play soccer or go cross country skiing with a pack of kids. Yoga asana is a mainstay for Katie: not just a physical practice, but an opportunity to slow down, to put aside the particularities of daily life, and to be absorbed in the present. Katie first started practicing yoga on a mountaintop in South India in 2001 and dug deeper into the practice on the Costa Rican Continental Divide. Recently she has relished her year of teacher training with Om Land Yoga. For Katie, there’s nothing like that full mind and body wash that comes at the end of a good yoga class. Her goal as a teacher is to see students walk away from her classes feeling alive and calm.
