I am a Yoga Alliance registered (RYT-500) yoga teacher and teaches Yin Yoga, Vinyasa and Meditation. I started practicing yoga in 2006 and completed my 500 hour Teacher Training and Yin Yoga qualification in New York at the renowned ISHTA Yoga School. My classes cater for the individual student by combining the teachings of Hatha, Tantra and Ayurveda, the ISHTA approach which emphasises finding the yoga that resonates with the individual’s spirit.
I believe in the transformational power of yoga and meditation and how it positively impacts people’s lives. I love sharing this practice with my students. All level students are welcome.

At last, a wonderful pure-Yin class in Cape Town

I've been attending Elsa's classes since she started them last year & they are the highlight of my week. Unlike most yoga in Cape Town that is more exercise than meditation based, Elsa's Yin classes bring you inwards, and allow you an extraordinary chance to check in with yourself weekly. She has a wonderful presence in the class, and her following, if still small, is very devoted.

Perfect nexus

Elsa hits the sweet-spot between body, mind and spirit. I thoroughly enjoy her classes and highly recommend her - especially for those interested in finding stillness and balance.

Connection of Body, MInd and Soul

I have had the great pleasure of joining Elsa's yoga sessions for a few months now. She is knowledgeable and guides us while maintaining a sense of calm in the studio. Hoping I will be able to attend lots more sessions!
