I have been practicing yoga since my early 20's, Since then, I have explored many of the various yoga traditions and I draw upon all of these teachings for my own classes, with the ultimate aim to find freedom and ease in both body and mind for the students.
I completed my Yoga teacher training in 2012 with Laura Gilmore at Bristol City Yoga. I have also completed a foundation course in Viniyoga of Yoga with Paul Harvey at the Center of yoga studies. I am yoga alliance accredited. I am also a qualified pregnancy yoga teacher.
Ellie discovered yoga more than five years ago and instantly fell in love with the practice. Yoga helped her to deal with the challenges of a demanding degree course and has since become an intricate part of her life. She believes that yoga helps to re establish the connection between body and mind, and that everyone can benefit from the practice of yoga.
Ellie completed her yoga teacher training in Goa, India in 2015. Her classes are a dynamic sequence of physical postures linking movement with breath that are thoughtfully sequenced and allow students to build strength, flexibility, coordination and vitality.
Yoga, with its balance of physical and spiritual practice, encompasses all the components of the holistic discipline I was seeking in other disconnected practices. In a relatively short time, yoga became—and still is—my passion. I began my personal yoga journey in 2009 with the practice of hatha yoga and since then keep exploring; experimenting in different styles - Ashtanga, Iyengar, Hatha, Vinyasa Flow.
Presently my facilitation and teaching focus primarily on the practices of Asthanga, Hatha and Vinyasa Flow. Having been an active person I both appreciate and enjoy the benefit of the yoga every day.
