“I had done a few different types of yoga before, but have really felt the benefits of doing Ellen’s Iyengar class. I can feel improvements in posture and strength which are helping in other sports particularly running.
As a beginner to Iyengar myself, Ellen is very inclusive of all levels, and I don’t feel pressured to push further than is comfortable but I feel encouraged to progress at my own pace.
Ellen’s instruction is clear, calm and relaxing, and she is very attentive to each individual’s position and level – coming round and making alterations to help us feel the benefit more deeply.
I love my Monday evenings and it sets me up for the week!” Sarah Stone
“I have attended a few yoga classes before, mostly in gyms, but yours is by far the best I have tried. I like the atmosphere and I feel good afterwards.” Hans Sievertsen
Ellen has been practicing Iyengar Yoga since 2005, and began her two year training course in 2013. The two year course (involving a minimum of 120 hours of training) became longer due to two babies. Ellen passed her rigorous day long assessment in 2018, after shadowing a more senior teacher at Yogawest in addition to her formal training.
Ellen says: “Iyengar Yoga has given me the space to find quietness in an otherwise busy life, which has been a huge benefit. I love the way that my mind becomes so focused on the postures and practice that I am truly present. Iyengar Yoga is careful and precise. It allows the student discover how their body works, where there is balance and imbalance, and where alignment, strength and flexibility can be improved. I hope that my students enjoy the learning that comes in each class, and the glow that follows the practice.”
