Hi, I'm Ella! I'm a Yoga teacher living in Merthyr Tydfil, Wales.
I started practicing yoga when I was fourteen, under the promise that Yoga would give me abs, a great bum and maybe some inner peace. What I didn't know is it would begin a love affair that would take over my life. After practicing for several years I began studying Buddhism and Hinduism at University, learning about the roots of Yoga philosophy and eventually writing my dissertation on the transition of yoga into the West. I also began my teacher training, learning to communicate my love of the practice to more and more people as I went.
I am still a student learning so much more about Yoga over the years, specialising in women's health and Womb Yoga. I believe the second we believe we know everything yoga has to offer, that is the moment that we need to learn something new and I am always searching for new and better ways to teach and evolve.
Mostly though, I love sharing my knowledge with my students. I truly believe that everyone can benefit from the practise, but so many of us don't know where to begin. We complicate what should be simple (believe me I know!) and forget that yoga is simply being present in the body.
It's my hope that this website can be used as a resource for the yogi who wants to know more as well as the beginner who wants to learn, whether that be with me in a class, online or on my blogs.
Though I still believe that yoga can give you abs and a great bum, I now know that it offers so much more and I cannot wait to share it all with you!
