Photographer Rich Ryan and reporter Sarah McKenzie stopped to chat with Victoria Olender of Excelsior recently. Olender works as a yoga and dance teacher at Zenon Dance Company and School, 528 Hennepin Ave. S.

"I study health a lot and well-being. I was just at Starbucks to get some quarters for my meter because I have to finish this ballet class.

I was just thinking about how the world could be more organic."
