Authorized Level 2 Ashtanga Yoga Teacher
Elinore has been a student of yoga since 1996 and teaching since 2004. Early on she trained in the Bihar Yogic Tradition of Northern India at the Banaras School of Yoga and later was captivated by the strength and grace of the Ashtanga form, her daily practice since 2001. She is a Level 2 Authorized teacher from KPJAYI in Mysore, India, where she began her study with the late Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in 2004. She returns there regularly to continue her study with his grandson, Sharath Rangaswamy. Additionally she is a Yoga Therapist certified through the Yogacampus, in London, UK, and a long-time practitioner of Vipassana (Mindfulness) Meditation.
Elinore first began teaching in Berlin where she created a Mysore program at the Yoga Shala running from 2005 until 2009 when she moved to London. There she ran the Mysore program at one of the oldest yoga studios, The Life Centre, from 2011 through 2015, as well as teaching at Europe’s leading yoga studio, triyoga, also in London.
For Elinore, yoga is a support to connect with the unfolding of life more fully. She teaches traditional Ashtanga Yoga as it is taught to her in Mysore and is committed to passing on this knowledge to the practitioners coming to her classes. She lovingly guides students to connect with the process of self-exploration on their mats, helping to create greater self-awareness and self-realization.
In addition to the Jois family, she has been blessed to study with Richard Freeman, Eddie Stern, David Swenson, Nancy Gilgoff, Dena Kingsberg, Matthew Sweeney and Christopher Titmuss. She is grateful to all the teachers who have guided her along this yogic journey.
