Her spirit and intuitive nature bring her students to a higher level of physical and spiritual practice. Her classes incorporate Vinyasa flow, Hatha, Ashtanga, and Anusara.

Eli Kagan -RYT500
Among other things, Elijah is a Sattva Himalyan Kundalini teacher. He studied in Rishikesh India with his guru and master Ananad Meherotra. Each practice with Elijah is a tailor made progression, combining emotional release techniques as well as kriya and asana, designed towards enlightenment and transformation. Elijah found Kundalini while traveling in Thailand, after an honorable discharge from the military, as he “randomly” met a traveling yogi that opened him up to the ancient teachings of Tantra. Since then Elijah has been learning and teaching around the world in countries such as India, Sri Lanka, Czech Republic, Israel, Sweden, and the USA. With a deep devotion to the practice Elijah is currently studying western philosophy and psychology to gain greater understanding of mankind and how to aid in bringing others to empowerment and true actualization.
