Ella's classes incorporate challenging sequences which encourage the student to find grace and elegance in movement, whilst finding the release and joy to let go in postures and find mental clarity.
Classes are accessible for all levels, with a range of modifications on offer. Beginners encouraged to try!
Ella completed her 200 hour certification in Ashtanga/Dynamic Vinyasa Yoga with Ervin Menyhart, undertaking an apprenticeship style teacher training over the course of 2.5 years. During this time Ashtanga Yoga was the base and only practice that Ella committed to.
The physicality of the practice suited Ella, but it also allowed her to work with strength in a way which hadn’t come naturally, even as a dancer. Exploring the nature of attention, consciousness and the philosophy of the practice made Ella want to go deeper and discover more about the practice.
After moving to London and experiencing lots of new approaches and styles, Ella wanted to allow her practice to progress in new ways and so started to experience the various different styles on offer. Naturally aligned with Ashtanga and practices which tend to be Dynamic and somewhat challenging, it was Rocket that Ella was attracted to and other approaches such as Mandala Vinyasa and Dharma Yoga. Ella then went on to complete a further 50 hours advanced teacher training in Rocket Yoga and another 50 hours advanced teacher training in Mandala Vinyasa with The Yoga People. Ella has also completed Edward Clark’s Tripsichore Creators Course.
As a practitioner Ella feels lucky and grateful to have so many friends, influences and teachers sharing knowledge with her through their teachings and classes.
Ella currently teaches yoga on the BA Hons Dance Degree at Coventry University and across Goldsmiths student accomodation.
