"In Learning Take Great Delight." I have found this quote to be a guiding principle of my life. It has fueled my passion to teach others how yoga can improve their health and well being. It has also led me to continue my training as a yoga instructor so that I can improve my knowledge of yoga.
Ellen has a very soothing demeanor. She is extremely patient and always constructive and supportive in her comments. Her approach is exactly what I needed to start down the yoga path.
If the student is looking for group classes, I like to arrange for them to come to class about 15 minutes early, so we can sit and chat about what they are looking to get out of coming to a yoga class. Also if they have an previous experience. Finding a yoga instructor that you make a connection with is important, and for that reason their first class is also free.

I am a yoga instructor who got into yoga because of chronic back pain. I took a teacher training after practicing a few years, thinking I would use the information to improve my home practice. During my training I found that I really enjoyed teaching and more importantly helping people by adjusting postures to fit their bodies.
