Meet Olivia Hsu

Olivia Hsu has spent over half of her life defying gravity, 20 years later and having traveling to over two dozen countries later she pursues climbing with the same passion as the first time she tied in. Olivia's roots are in trad climbing but has branched out in all the disciplines of climbing be it sport, Trad, Bouldering and Ice. She see them all as an art of movement. She is also a certified yoga teacher and has found it to be the perfect compliment to climbing, cultivating focus and flexibility on both the mental and physical levels. She has studied Ashtanga for nearly two decades and has been studying continuously with Richard Freeman and Tim Miller for over a decade. Being an elite level athlete she has been able to find the delicate balance between practice and training and understands the myriad ways in which yoga complements doing what you love.

"People say you are what you eat, but I believe you also 'are what you wear.' Living sustainably isn't just about what you do, but also about what you put on your body. Wearing eco eye protection is #1 RAD, #2 benefits the planet, and #3 helps you see the world through eco lenses. Thanks ZEAL for making that possible!"
