Ellen was introduced to Yoga 10 years ago through dance classes and started practicing intensely since 2008, as a means of balancing the pace and intensity of her corporate job as a head-hunter. Regular practice brought about calmness and healing in the body, and she fell in love with Yoga. Through her journey of practice, it has given her the gift of awareness through the experience of uniting the breath, body and mind. More than just physical benefits, Yoga also brings about understanding ‘living life to the fullest’ and to always honest with oneself.
Yoga starts its work by changing of the physiology of the body, which results in an improved overall body system. Yoga is for everyone from all walks of life and it can be fun and exciting. She wants to share the practice with others by providing guidance through the understanding of their own body movement and potential. She teaches Introduction to Yoga (Hatha), Flow Yoga (Vinyasa) and Kids Yoga, to individuals and group classes.
Ellen is a certified Yoga Teacher from Dr Venky’s Shivshakti Yoga Institute (International) India, certified in Standard First Aid with a background in Jazz dance, which continues until today. She is in the process of a Kids Yoga Certification course, which will complete by March 2013.
