Elise Greenspoon

Elise Greenspoon is a KPJAYI authorized level 2 ashtanga instructor with over a decade of experience in practice, ayurveda and eastern philosophies. In university while studying world religions, Elise was first introduced to new cultures and ways of thinking which opened her to an alternative way of living and a different course of thinking. She began to explore eastern philosophies and tried a variety of styles and practices including hatha yoga, kundalini yoga, yin yoga and vipassana meditation.

Finally, she came across ashtanga vinyasa yoga and immediately fell in love. Shortly after, she made her first of many journeys to Mysore, India where she immersed herself in the lineage of the practice. There, she also learned past life regression therapy and many other healing techniques that she is still practicing and mastering today.

Elise believes that yoga is so much more than bending the body. It is the most precious tool offered to us to move through this journey on earth. It allows us to be healthy and strong in both body and mind, it helps us to function at the peak of our possibility and most importantly, it allows us to establish a continuous connection to something higher than ourselves.
