About Eliot

Eliot’s greatest delight arises in teaching yoga to guide students to discover the beauty and magnificence of their true Self. Though her passion for the connection of all things has led her to study holistic nutrition, ReiKi healing and yoga, her preferred medium is teaching yoga. She completed Anusara Teacher Training in 2010 and certified in hatha yoga.  She gratefully continues the study and refinement of asana under the guidance of senior Iyengar teachers.  

Not only is she committed to continuously hone her skills to practice and teach asana, but as a long-time meditator and student of non-dual Tantra, she also elegantly weaves higher teachings into her classes as a way of bringing students deeper into the subtler realms of experience.   

Eliot teaches to support the increase of awareness and to empower students to align with their highest potential in their bodies, their minds and their hearts. Her wholesome classes follow the rhythms of the moon and always include aligned asana, pranayama, chanting and meditation.

Now, through this unique new program, Eliot would like extend the opportunity to mature students to deepen their practice and refine their understanding of the teachings. 

For those students who then feel the yearning to teach and share, the first part of the program becomes a foundation upon which she will teach the second part on how to elegantly, appropriately and powerfully articulate both the asana and the subtler teachings to all levels of students.
