Elaine’s love affair with Yoga started in 2000- Her first class left her feeling like a 5 year old , so familiar and nourishing, she had come home! This Journey led her on the most Exquisite Adventure, revealing Yoga’s healing Medicine and Magic.
Her Practice became her passion.
Elaine, seeks to translate and express the Joy, Freedom and Support that Yoga offers, in connecting and getting to know the body. She strives to show students the Beauty and Importance of this connection, despite our differences of strengths and abilities.
Inspired by the precision and alignment of Iyengar ; the strength and core connection physically and emotionally of Forrest yoga; the anatomical understanding of safe and healthy practice of the spine, through Synergy Yoga – culminating in the Grace and fluidity of Vinyasa.
Respecting & valuing ones’ body, is the Key to good health.
She teaches from the heart, and includes all the delicious Jewels of her studies into her classes.
Yoga is a lifetime Journey, that never ceases to Surprise and Delight Elaine, it guides her to a better understanding and respect of herself, on all levels,
hence to a better understanding and respect of the world around her.
