Ahimsa and their lovely teachers is a real gem in the city! It is a warm, inviting space that is open and accepting to all levels of ability, whether you’re a beginner trying yoga out, or a well practiced yogi. It has a special place in my heart :)
Elke came to yoga through dance. An accomplished dancer and performer in many disciplines, her 20 year relationship with dance and its consequent body fatigue led her to seek healing. She found the practice of yoga. After experiencing profound positive change in all aspects of her life, Elke felt the desire to share her discovery with others. Elke owes her deep love of yoga to her inspiring teachers JP Tamblyn, Pat Harada Linfoot and Scott Davis. She has had the opportunity to study with Nicki Doane, Eddie Modestini Mark Whitwell and has completed Shiva Rea's Yoga Trance Dance Teachers Training. Elke continues to explore different teachers and various styles of yoga. She leads a practice that is fluid and strong: a Vinyasa-style class based on Ashtanga sequencing, infused with creative variations. She encourages a sense of play in the practice and her teachings cultivate a curiosity towards revealing the body’s intrinsic wisdom. Bringing knowledge from her broad dance and movement training, she is interested in fitting the practice to the individual and making the practice accessible to all who seek to learn.
