"What I learned from yoga is that it's not about the form and posture. It's how you engage in the posture."When you engage in the posture rather than trying to create a form, you are free to be where you are." Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen
Focus on the Modern Yogi, Mama, and multidimensional human being.
Elyse Chaya-Bracha Adelson DIRECTOR 200 HR FLOW Yoga Teacher Training SCHOOL E-RYT, YACE Provider , RPYT, RYS, B.S. Kinesiology, Education , 20+ years teaching movement and yoga
I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology (the study of Human Movement) in 2000 & Teaching Certificate K-12 Physical Education and Exercise Science with a minor in Psychology in 2001. Certified to teach movement classes since 1995, a former NCAA (Div 1) Track & Field athlete, and a many summers past white water raft guide, I tried yoga as a dare after teaching a ski conditioning class in 2003. Since that day, I continue to thank yoga, mindful movement, outdoor adventures, my teachers & students for introducing me to a healthier relationship with my body, my friends, family, community, Mother Nature and beyond. Forever a somatic nerd and embodiment geek, I am passionate to share practical tools and help guide curious beings to find their paddle as we navigate the flow of everyday life.
When I'm not teaching, I'm an avid road trail runner, explorer of the outdoors, a curious cook , and always in awe of my greatest teacher, my daughter, Anava.
