Jonathan Ellis, Therapeutic Yoga Educator, E-RYT 500

Awareness * Mobility * Strength

I believe the principles and practice of Yoga are relevant to myriad of settings.  As a result of this belief, I have advocated and successfully integrated Yoga into the areas of art education, corporate wellness programs, and primary medical care. 

Prior to teaching Yoga full time, I studied exercise science and spent 15+ years developing mindfulness based wellness programs for global companies such as NIKE & Blue Cross Blue Shield Health Insurance.  As an anatomy geek, I followed my initial 200 hour yoga certification with 300+ hours anatomy and physiology rich instruction with my primary teacher, Jason Crandell.  Continuing my efforts to bridge the gap between Yoga and medicine, I completed the Integrative Yoga Masters program offered at Duke University Integrative Medicine.  

Public classes: I strive to cultivate an environment where, regardless of age or ability, each student is able to envision and nurture their own practice.  

Private Yoga Instruction: Address specific muscular disorders, pain management and overall health and well-being.
