Ellie Burke

Ellie views the practice of yoga primarily as an opportunity to drop into the full experience of the moment through attention and awareness and, through that presence, to experience the fullness of life. Yoga offers practitioners a way to take care of their entire selves (physically, mentally, emotionally, energetically) allowing them to be more balanced, strong, healthy, alive, and present and to bring those qualities into all aspects of their lives.

Ellie teaches deliberate and balanced vinyasa classes with a focus on breath awareness, attention to alignment, and cultivating the qualities of contentment, acceptance, and continued disciplined effort without attachment to the outcome. Her teaching often touches on the rich aspects of yogic philosophy and the spiritual aim of connecting with who we are at our essence: perfect, whole, and complete.

Ellie provides regular group and private instruction in yoga and meditation. She strives to build a conscious community by mentoring and supporting other yoga teachers as they hone in on what the experience of yoga is and how to convey that to their students.
