Elyse received her teaching certification in Costa Rica through Frog Lotus Yoga in 2010, and she has been teaching ever since. She teaches a vinyasa flow class and sequences in a way that the poses flow naturally from one to the next. She emphasizes safe alignment, mindful breath, and longer holds in poses to create strength and flexibility. She sprinkles in yogic philosophy and wisdom, but also allows time for quiet reflection. She enjoys teaching because it continually inspires her to grow in her own practice and knowledge. Yoga, both in its physical practice and philosophy, has deeply impacted Elyse’s life, and it is an honor for her to share this practice with others. Her hope is that students feel grounded, strong, and centered when they attend her classes and leave with a deeper connection to themselves and because of that, an ability to live with more awareness in their day-to-day lives.
