Elaine has been a student of yoga since 2006 where she was exposed to the practice in Taiwan. Soon after her exposure she became a devotee to Ashtanga Yoga for its dynamic flow of movement, linking breath to body, and body to mind.
The postures of the Ashtanga method and their related breathings and movements (vinyasa) are counted out according to the method of the K. Pattabhi Jois’ Ashtanga Yoga Institute of Mysore, India. The teacher will provide some verbal and hands-on guidance regarding the proper execution of the postures and movements but will be mostly concerned with moving the class through the series at the proper pace. This class is suitable for those already familiar with the Primary Series and is a suitable introduction to Ashtanga method.
Elaine finds joy in helping people find themselves through yoga. Her mission is to spread yoga to all pockets of the community, regardless of age, shape, size, flexibility, and strength. She believes that with the right intention, anyone can do yoga. She now lives in Berkeley, CA, where she works as a children’s culinary and nutrition instructor, yoga student and teacher.
