My name is Fern Olivia and I am crusading the thyroid healing movement with Thyroid Yoga®, my integrative approach to health.

I am no longer at the mercy of the diagnosis of a Hashimoto's Hypothyroid condition, and I am finally glowing, feeling empowered, and living a life I absolutely adore. 

Today, I work with clients through 2-hour Activation Sessions and Personal One-Day-Retreats, as well as teach classes, guide retreats, and speak at events internationally

I also train teachers and those interested in becoming practitioners in the Thyroid Yoga® method, which is now available as a live and online certification

MY MISSION

I AM HERE TO EMPOWER WOMEN & MEN WHO HAVE EXPERIENCED THE DISCOMFORT AND STRUGGLE OF TRYING TO UNDERSTAND HOW TO ALIGN THEIR THYROID HEALTH WITH THE VIBRANT HEALTH THEY WISH TO ACHIEVE.

Those who desire to find balance and vibrancy in their bodies, who have tried everything, who are sick of taking tests upon tests and receiving lack of clarity, who still feel frequent puffiness and fogginess and wish to feel home in their bodies again. Those who may fear speaking their truth or demanding self-respect in their relationships and careers.

Those who know that deep within their hearts, there is a voice and a light that must be expressed.

Those who are willing to invest in their own healing to live the vibrant, luminous, healthy life that is their birthright.

THOSE WHO ARE READY TO HEAL THEMSELVES AND THROUGH THAT HEALING, HEAL THE WORLD. 

 

MY STORY

Yoga found me when I was working 14-hour days in finance and muting my creative voice in exchange for a six-figure salary with two weeks vacation a year.

After work, I was binge drinking and dancing on tables in NYC’s most glamorous night clubs.

I was fiercely out of control and afraid of the woman I was born to be.

My relationships and partnerships didn’t give me the opportunity to shine, for my light was always dimmed by my fear of speaking up for myself. It was easier to play small, so there I stayed.

My body rebelled. I suffered from chronic congestion, puffiness, brain fog, constipation, food allergies, and severe stomach irritability for nearly a decade. 

As my yoga practice deepened, I realized the way I was treating myself and showing up in my life had a direct correlation to the persistence of my Hashimoto’s hypothyroid symptoms.

Once I completed yoga teacher training and created a thriving wellness practice, I quit my corporate job. My symptoms cleared up, but I was still afraid to use my voice in class. I’d mimic the same alignment cues and the intonations of my dearest teacher because I wasn’t yet confident with mine.

It wasn't until I finally expressed my voice with integrity, created the work I was born to do, stepped up to be a true leader, and courageously followed my heart to move from New York to Los Angeles when I discovered my true healing power and intuitive gifts. 

MY WORK

Today, I offer my clients a unique experience blending yoga, meditation, breath work, energy work, nutrition and lifestyle coaching.

I also speak internationally on the topics of thyroid and hormone health, integrative healing, body image, natural beauty, and conscious entrepreneurship. 

I've partnered with Dr. Gabrielle Lyon at The Ash Center for Comprehensive Medicine, Dr. Robin Berzin and Dr. Jeffrey Egler at Parsley Health, and Dr. Kevin Campbell MD FAAC, an internationally recognized expert in the prevention of sudden cardiac death in women. Together with these exceptional doctors, I offer Thyroid Yoga™ in tandem with integrative medical practices, ultimately revolutionizing the way patients are cared for and empowering a new awareness of the power of targeted yoga and meditation techniques to accelerate sustained thyroid and hormone healing. 

The inaugural Level 1 Thyroid Yoga® practitioner training was successfully completed at RA MA Institute in Los Angeles on November 3-6 2016 and I will continue to certify practitioners online, globally. I also have trainings and retreats in the pipeline for 2017 in Australia and Montauk. 

My vision for these Thyroid Yoga®-certified practitioners is for each to first and foremost, understand how to utilize the practices to balance their own glandular system for sustained health, and then have the confidence to share these practices with the world as they develop their own signature offerings. I aim to empower each person who takes this training to create their own ripple effect of health and healing in our global community. This could be in the form of retreats, speaking engagements, personal and group healing work, yoga, meditation, functional medicine - truly the possibilities are infinite and this is what makes this so exciting for me! 


"RESTORE AND REALIGN THE ENERGETIC AND BIOCHEMICAL MECHANISMS THAT INFLUENCE THYROID FUNCTIONING WITH AN EXTREMELY KNOWLEDGABLE TEACHER." 
The first time I met Fern was at my juice bar in Sedona, she was on a girls trip with some other amazing women. I was touched by her calm but somehow fiery energy. She was absolutely radiant. I didn’t know anything about her, but I could tell she was a mover and a shaker. I could also tell that she was 100% comfortable in her body. She had that effortless sexiness that only people who really have found a place of love whiten themselves have. I was intrigued! We all sat down for lunch and I learned a bit about Fern and her amazing journey, Thyroid Yoga™ and her beautiful body care line Ajai (I now carry it at Local Juicery!). Fern is what strong and radiant is all about. She is strong, she is radiant and she is grounded in love and authenticity.

Something I love about Fern is her follow through. I’ve found that success is dependent on a few key things, and follow through is one of them. I appreciate people who let you now whats up! Fern is awesome at this. I feel very grateful to be connected to her, keep your eye on her because she’s done/doing/will do many beautiful things.
