    I am so fortunate to receive Yoga instruction, acupuncture and healing massage from Ela. She continues to take seminars to increase her knowledge about healing the body by understanding how movement affects health. Ela is overjoyed to share this information with her clients.

How did you get started teaching?

AS an Oriental Medicine practitioner I was seeing people that I've known for years coming into the office with new pains from Yoga and Pilates. I was already practiting Yoga for my own wellbeing and that determined me to get my formal training, so I can show them how to practice in a safe way.    

What types of students have you worked with?

Wide variety, from teenagers to elderly. From emotional issues, stress to pain ( acute or chronic).

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Shiatsu Symposium. I reviewed very simple and effective techiques for pain reduction! 

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Meet with that teacher in person! Make the decision after! Some people are great marketers without a lot to offer,some others have a lot to offer but don't know how to present themselves... 

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

How did you get into Yoga? 

Why did you become a Yoga teacher?

What do you practice daily?
