Ellie came to yoga seeking stress relief and a new way to be fit during college. From the beginning she loved how the time on the mat was as beneficial to her mind as it was to her body, In 2007, she took her first hot power vinyasa class in Indianapolis. The heat and flow took her back to her childhood as a dancer and sparked an even deeper mind body connection and devotion to the practice. She became certified to teach in 2010 while living in Chicago. Ellie strives to bring a little self love to each moment spent on her mat and to encourage her students to do the same.
