Ellen's first introduction to yoga was at age 11, in the basement of her local synagogue. The practice didn't last, but the seed had been planted. Eleven years later, having moved to New York City, Ellen decided to try yoga out once again. She found the practice invigorating, challenging and refreshing. It was exactly the escape she needed from her hectic life in the city that never sleeps.
Having moved to Cleveland, Ellen found a practice that really spoke to her in a class taught as a mixture of Jivamukti and Anusara yoga. Ellen completed her 200 hour yoga teacher certification with Marni Task in June of 2009 and has been teaching regularly since then. In addition to Marni, Ellen has studied with renowned teachers like Max Strom, Tiffany Frasier, Rowan Silverberg, Simon Park, and Dechen Thurman.
Ellen teaches a fast-paced, vinyasa flow class, where students are encouraged to challenge themselves and use their breath to realize and attain the unity of body, mind, and spirit. Modifications are offered. Previous experience for beginners is encouraged.
