Hello! My name is Victoria Joy “Thor” Hutson ERYT-500, YACEP, RN, MSN. I love practicing & teaching yoga practice...all of it, not just the asana (poses). I am the founder of the Elegant Outlaw a mobile and virtual yoga studio located in Austin, TX. We offer a unique experience of bringing yoga to you straight out of our refurbished & retro ""Boogie Van"" fully-equipped with mats, props, sound system and experienced yoga teachers. My team & I specialize in providing anatomically accessible patterns of movement. We believe that yoga should be functional and support us both physically & mentally as we navigate activities of daily living off of the mat. Yoga is often represented as an intimidating practice but my passion is to reach people beyond those who would “stereotypically enter a modern Western yoga studio on a routine basis”. Whether you are taking my class live in a studio in Austin, TX or virtually via workplace wellness, we desire to bring yoga practice to people in an accessible way! I also teach other teachers to do the same through a podcast, continuing education courses and mentorships.

You don’t have to “be able to touch your toes,” or have a certain shape body or certain type of clothes…

…Come as you are! This practice has transformed my life by allowing me to truly accept myself as I am. Although I have a lot of continual work & growth to do, my unwavering self-acceptance provides me internal peace & power in my true self.

Among a culture that profits from our own self-doubt, I believe LOVING & accepting OURSELves is an outlaw act of rebellion & revolution.
I spent the majority of my adulthood as a registered nurse, originally entering this field because I wanted to help & heal others. I discovered yoga while going though a rigorous nursing school program. Although nursing has been an amazing supplement to this path; I realized that yoga was the correct path for me to help & heal others around me. Nursing has provided me so many skills including a comprehensive understand of the workings of the human body, prevention of injury, modifying poses and much more (which I believe set me apart as a yoga instructor.)

I absolutely love yoga but I also enjoy so many other things as well. I adore my family and friends (my immediate family is composed of my husband and two dogs). Also, I love creating…in fact, I handcraft yoga clothes (available for purchase). Also, I really enjoy riding and working my motorcycle. Anytime I am allowed the chance to create, I take it!

Retreat Specialties

Destination Yoga Teacher Training is our bread & butter! We set ourselves apart by offering a mix of high-quality online self-paced learning WITH destination practicums. This combination allows the accessibility of learning in the comfort and price of a digital academy with the option for a short destination learning retreat. Our next 300-YTT will begin in early 2022 with the destination on the Pacific coast of Mexico.

Teaching Specialties

Students can expect to feel accepted and welcome. I meet you where you are at...bringing yoga to you wherever you are and at whatever level you are at. I burst through the confining walls of the modern yoga studio (via my mobile & virtual yoga studio) to make this practice more accessible. With a greater emphasis on functional movement (rather than emphasizing handstands) and greater emphasis on meditation/visualization/breath awareness (rather than strictly fitness); I seek to support you both physically and mentally.

What are your favorite Retreat Venues around the world

Samadhi Yoga Retreat Center located in San Marcos, TX is by far the best location I have ever offered a yoga retreat at. The owner, Ricardo, is amazing and I look forward to his upcoming location in Guatemala.

What's your personal definition of what it means to thrive?

To thrive is to have abundance. The abundance of time, energy, and money.

Who do you look up to ? Who has helped you the most along your teacher / retreat leader journey?

My husband Blake Hutson, my sisters Ashley & Lex, my mother Magdalena, my best girlfriends
