Olga Feheley is surely one of the most interesting women we’ve had a chance to meet. The layers are deep for this world traveler, Aerial Yoga Instructor and all around Tallahassee enthusiast.
Olga was raised as an “air force brat”, traveling the world with her family at a very young age. Her mother always insisted that the family live in a village , rather than on the air force base. She was therefore immersed in the culture of wherever her family was stationed. So much so, that she spent age 3-5 in a Turkish village and Turkish was her first language.
In her later teen years when her family was settled in Florida, Olga entered the Miami sound scene. Starting out as a secretary at age 19, Olga traveled with an artist’s Management company, setting up live shows, radio interviews and TV spots. During these exciting times, Olga worked with artists such as Celi Bee, Dorothy Moore and the Village People. Multi talented, Olga also did background vocals and was featured on a billboard charted Dance 12” single release.
A self described workaholic at the time, somehow Olga also found the time to accomplish getting a degree from FIU as a fashion major. She was instrumental in the designing and production of a swim wear line.
She continued recording and performing until she married at age 33 and moved to Europe with her husband who is a Lieutenant Colonel and an F-16 Fighter Pilot. They lived and raised their children primarily in Europe. Olga’s son was born in England and her daughter was born in Italy. The family also lived in Germany and then in Abu Dhabi for 3 years.
A lover of world cultures, Olga can communicate in English, Spanish, French, German, Italian and basic Arabic.
Olga developed an interest in Yoga during her teens and it was something she always found herself returning to. She became certified to teach Vinyasa, Hot and Mind Body Yoga and currently teaches Aerial Yoga at Hot Yoga Tallahassee.
While she treasures her experiences from her travels abroad, Olga feels at home and excited to be in Tallahassee. She loves living in Midtown and walking to the local farmers markets and xploring locally owned shops, calling them her “special places”. Olga is involved in the North Florida Holistic School of Medicine, enjoys Litchgate, Nia Dance, Rock Climbing, Healing Sounds and Crystal Portal and Drumming Circles.
Olga loves a boho look and she likes to shop for special gifts at Quarter Moon. She is one of those rare customers that truly makes herself part of the family. When our shop re-opened after being closed for 6 weeks due to storm damage 2 summers ago, Olga baked us cookies to celebrate at our grand re-opening. She will occasionally stop by with home baked goodies for the staff and we always appreciate her smile, her kindnesses…and her baking!!
Thank you Olga for being a great customer, for modeling for us, for letting us get to know you and for getting to know us. You are greatly appreciated!
