Elise started practicing yoga as a way to relieve tension as a theatre artist. As time passed, it became so much more; a source of inner confidence, strength, and acceptance. Now, yoga keeps her grounded as she lives out her crazy freelance theatre director life. She completed her 200-hour teacher training in 2014 at Maha Yoga and Healing Arts with Justicia DeClue. She teaches a slow and strong vinyasa flow with heavy emphasis on alignment. She loves helping her students find their way into wacky arm balances and creates a meditative but playful atmosphere.
