ABOUT ELAINE

I've always known that I was born to heal people and change their lives, and I found that through my work as a yoga therapy teacher and nutrition consultant. 

After graduating from Harvey Mudd College with a Bachelors of Science in Biology, I pursued my passion of teaching yoga. With over ten years of practice, experience, and continuing education on anatomy, meditation, functional exercises, nutrition and yoga therapy, I bring my knowledge to the forefront when working with my students and clients. I am passionate about helping people go above and beyond their chronic pain, sleep problems, and digestive issues so that they can live an active and full life. 

I support bodies through private yoga therapy sessions to relieve chronic pain, manage stress and anxiety, encourage deep relaxation and release, and restore vitality. This includes:

  • lower and upper back pain
  • spinal tension and injuries
  • insomnia 
  • anxiety and depression
  • chronic tensions in neck, shoulders, lower back, and hips
  • injury recovery and prevention
  • adrenal fatigue
  • stress management

I guide my clients through a whole foods way of eating that is nurturing for their unique bodies to lift the fog of fatigue, regain mental clarity, reduce digestive issues, and restore radiance. This includes:

  • fatigue and exhaustion
  • grogginess throughout the day
  • inability to focus
  • bloating and stomach pains
  • constipation and/or diarrhea
  • skin breakouts

I am here to empower you towards a life full of vibrancy and energy, so that you can enjoy all the things that life has to offer for you.
