Ella is a dancer and yoga teacher. She completed her initial 200 hours + in Ashtanga – the traditional apprenticeship route with Ervin Menyhart. She then took an additional 100 hours in Rocket and Mandala Vinyasa Yoga with The Yoga People. Ella has been taught and mentored by influential yoga teachers including Norman Sjoman, Sri Louise, Mark Kan and Eileen Gauthier – whose teachings highly inform her practice. Ella has a BA in Dance Making & Performance and an MA in Performance Practices. Ella’s classes work with precision and specificity in asana. Through flowing sequences of movement Ella builds the foundations for the student to explore the potential of their individual body through asana. She hopes to find a space in which a student can find support in their body and a sense of effortlessness.
Additionally Ella performs and makes her own dance/artistic work. She recently published a book entitled “The Hospitality of Surrender; Invitations for Practice & Life” .
