What My Students Are Saying
"Ellen is one of the best, if not THE best yoga teacher I've ever had. She is so authentic and compassionate. She brings real life into every lesson.
I am truly grateful to have found her."
— Charrie — West Seattle WA.
"Studying with Ellen is equal parts raw, challenging, humorous, intellectually stimulating, nourishing and deeply satisfying. She is a force to
be reckoned with, and cares deeply for the practice of yoga and all it encompasses, and making it relatable to all of her students. She is a teacher
who leaves her mark on your heart."
— Carly — Seattle WA.
"Like many, I first came to yoga in a time of personal crisis and was incredibly fortunate to find myself in Ellen's classes. Her nurturing
compassion, inspiring wisdom, and fiery, humorous energy have had a profound impact on helping me establish a practice I am deeply grateful for
and on living a healthier, mindful life outside of class."
— Chris — Seattle WA.
"Your presence and teaching are uplifting light and inspired energy.... which has motivated me to follow your invitation onto new pathways...
towards healthier lifestyle choices."
— Kay — Seattle WA.
"Ellen fully embodies heart energy. It is a rare joy to experience, explore, and play with such a lovely gift!"
— Stephen M Antupit, LEED-ND AP — Seattle WA.
"Ellen feels so deeply and loves so widely... being in her presence reminds me that we are all free and meant to do the same! The community
she creates is a sanctuary for cleansing tears and life-giving laughter. Studying with her invigorates my passion to live an authentic, vibrant
life, dedicated to Earth-Soul harmony."
— Katrina — Seattle WA.
"Ellen inspired me so much to make small changes in my daily routine. She makes learning about Ayurvedic practices exciting but not overwhelming.
She is such a role model because you are approachable and easy to connect with. She walks the walk."
— Alyssa — Seattle WA.
"It has been a wonderful year so far studying with Ellen within the Year of Living Yoga course. Ellen has a huge, huge heart and she is the
epitome of true authenticity. She creates a soft haven so that her students can explore deeply within themselves in an environment of love
— Alison — Seattle WA.
"This course has encouraged me to "ramp up" my daily practices with a sense of joy, not obligation. I look forward to our gatherings and I am always
so impressed with Ellen's dedication to her teaching, her students and to all of our evolution. While I am constantly a work in progress, I have felt a
very deep shift in consciousness this year because of the work in this course, the sangha and of course, the teacher. Ellen's Yoga classes are rigorous,
yet have a sense of lightness and humor. They are always delightfully sequenced, unique and create opening and awareness in the body, mind and spirit.
Ellen is one of the most inspiring teachers I have ever practiced with. She was the original source of what I call an "inspiration hangover," which happens
the day after you leave yoga so fired up and filled with joy that it is nearly impossible to sleep. She manages to bring just the right combination of
effort, grace--and especially important--grounded humor! To each class. I especially love the way she teaches for life off the mat, encouraging the
incorporation of seasonal and Ayurvedic practices into our approach to life. I hope to study with Ellen for many years to come."
— Lisa — Seattle WA.
"I LOVE learning from Ellen! She has a deep wealth of knowledge to share and shares it with humor and ease. I have been truly blessed to have
had the opportunity to learn from her."
— Genevieve — Seattle WA.
"Ellen's passion and exuberance for the heart of this practice is infectious! I always walk away with a new nugget of wisdom, a tip, or a new
idea about how to walk the walk. Hearing about some of her own experiences, where she has come from and how she got to where she is on this path is
empowering. Her willingness to be vulnerable always inspires me. I love how she has combined Yoga and Ayurveda to bring a unique offering."
— Andrea — Issaquah WA.
"Ellen shares the teachings, practices and lifestyle recommendations with humor, warmth, and just the right amount of encouragement to try things in
our lives. I so enjoy the joyful laughter in your classes. Ellen always communicates compassion and love I really appreciate her fresh viewpoints often
with personal examples."
— Grace — Seattle WA.
