She has been practicing yoga since 2003, and recently completed Yoga Teacher Training at Yoga One. She is also a student of AcroYoga. Ellie Blue's love of movement arts drew her to the practice of yoga, the symmetry and balance in the body that yoga provides is what led her to become a teacher. Through dance, massage, and yoga training, she has acquired a knowledge of anatomy that easily lends a strong alignment-based style to her classes. And she enjoys choreographing sequences that flow organically from one pose to the next.
