Elissar did her first yoga teacher training in 2008 at the Sivananda Ashram in Québec (200+ hours). This first training was a month-long immersion in classical yoga philosophy, physical yoga practice, and yogic lifestyle principles. Building on those classical yoga roots, she later completed training in Powerflow (40 hours, Todd Lavictoire, 2009) and Vinyasa Flow (40 Hours, Dina Tsouluhas and Ryan Leier, 2011). In 2013, Elissar developed an interest in muscles, bones, fascia, and connective tissue in the yogic context. So, she completed the Yoga Tune Up© Teacher Training, which uses innovative ways to reach into the very deep layers of the body. (70 hours, Todd Lavictoire and Amanda Tripp, 2013). She has participated in workshops with Todd Norian, Ana Forrest, Ryan Leier, and others.
In addition to practicing yoga, Elissar is a classical singer and composer, a superfood lover, and a student of Sufism.
Expect a class that reaches into the deep layers of body, soul, and spirit. You will sweat, expand, and strengthen your connection to breath.
