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 training 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. I also work closely with Mayo Clinic providing Therapeutic Yoga Education for patients in the Chattanooga Area.
