GET TO KNOW ME

Though I wasn’t conscious of it at the time, my journey to yoga actually began during my childhood in Romania.  As part of both a Communist society and the country’s Junior Olympic Gymnastics Team.

Although my body developed great strength through gymnastics (and I found surprising solitude being upside down), I often lived in fear.  That reality is reflected in my emphasis on the mental aspect of yoga.  In class, I focus on strengthening the mind as much as on strengthening the body.  

While I have a reputation as a demanding teacher, I welcome questions and am able to modify poses to accommodate students of different levels.  My approach to the practice blends different classical styles with a focus on alignment, arm balances and inversions.

“Perfect balance between a world-class athlete type strictness that pushes you safely to your limit, complemented by the most compassionate, sensitive, funny beings I’ve come across. She is all sorts of wonderful!” @cuchira 

“Her understanding of human physique through her own gymnastics and yoga experience gives her teaching an edge that others simply cannot match.” @Kaur.kallas

No Bullshit Approach To Your Practice

I created Ellavateyoga for type A’s, ex and current athletes, students and teachers like me—who were born with an excess of anger and sarcasm, along with an incredible will to succeed.

The Antidote To Your Busy City Life

Yoga is learning to return to yourself.  It’s a way to remember who you are—the self you’ve forgotten while being caught in the flood of a fast—paced life.  Being off-balance and anxious does not lead to a healthy, enjoyable existence.  So let’s learn how to center both our body and our mind, so we can be at peace.
