Online Yoga Classes

Practice in the Comfort of Your Home

You don’t need a space designated solely for yoga. Find a spot, roll out your mat and log into class (links below). No time driving, no need to rush, just come to Yoga! The enjoyment of class in your “personal yoga space” may likely inspire you to practice more often.

Join ellen virtually for community, study, inspiration and practice

The classical teachings of Yoga provide a blueprint for balanced living. Using the many tools of Yoga, students learn how to relax the mind and ride the tides of change with resilience and equanimity.

All classes have a “therapeutic touch”. I assess my group and adapt the practice for the individuals who are present. I do not use a pre-defined curriculum. I create the class based on the level, need and interest of the students present.

My live online classes can:

  • help reset your nervous system
  • help to manage stress and anxiety
  • build strength and flexibility
  • support you in navigating challenges
  • allow you to deepen in to self-love and self-mastery
  • optimize immune function/diminish inflammation
