When Elyse first started her journey with yoga, she didn't really understand the purpose of the movements, or the breath, or the concentrations, but she kept going back because of the teacher, who made her feel safe, supported, worthy. After a short while, for the first time in her life, she felt comfortable in her own skin... and it had nothing to do with the way she looked! Elyse wanted to do for others what her instructor had done for her and decided to become an instructor in the hopes of touching the hearts of others, the way these teachers have for her.
