"Ella's focus as a yoga teacher is to stabilize the body and then mobilize it. This approach allows you to feel supported, while extending your personal limits in a safer manner. Stability, strength and flexibility are key components to keeping the body functioning well and yoga with Ella enables you to address all three areas in a practical way. She empowers you in an educational way with a depth of knowledge that comes from a yoga certification and a personal training background. Ella is not just your average yoga teacher and I personally love expanding my body's limits whether that be emotionally, physically, or mentally with her well rounded yoga practice."

"I have been having private yoga sessions with Ella for a few years now. From the moment I arrived at Ella’s studio I felt at ease and Ella made me feel like I could conquer anything. She is so friendly, understanding and extremely passionate about her yoga. My husband decided to give Ella's yoga a go a while back too ... Needless to say, he’s hooked!"

"I'm a big fan of Ella's classes and have been lucky enough to have her teach at the studio I manage - Kanuka Yoga Space in Hobsonville. Her energy, cues and unique sequencing always impress me and she has an exceptional understanding of human anatomy. She's a pro at layering. She begins with simple movements, then slowly adds micro adjustments until you find yourself breaking a sweat in something that seems so simple. I can highly recommend Ella as a person and as a yoga/movement instructor!"
