Ellen discovered Yoga in 2012 after the birth of her 2nd daughter. Like most others Ellen had tried may ways to stay in shape throughout her life. Originally focused on the physical aspects of yoga, hot classes in particular, she immediately knew that she had finally found the "workout" she was looking for. Shortly after starting Hot Yoga Ellen became pregnant with her third daughter, after which she jumped right back into her practice. Quickly realizing the mental and spiritual benefits of Yoga Ellen became a 200 hr RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher) in July of 2015 through Forever Om Yoga in Lake Forest, IL. After completing her training Ellen began to teach and continues to study and deepen her love of yoga every day.
