After giving up gymnastics due to injury, Elly lost the connection to her body. She rekindled this relationship in her late teens when she found yoga. After exploring various styles of yoga, and developing a regular and committed self-practice, Elly went to Padmakarma Shala in 2015 to complete the RYT 200hr teacher training in Hatha yoga. Elly continued her training at Island Yoga, Aruba, under the tutelage of Rachel Brathen and Lara Heimann, founder of the LYT Method. Elly is also a qualified Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra teacher. Elly believes that the physical practice of yoga can support the balance between strength and flexibility. Her classes are heart-led, with an emphasis on alignment, and she guides her students into their own embodiment of each posture.
