'Yoga meets you wherever you are' is a quote that rings true for Elsa every day.

Elsa is the owner of the The Yoga Room in Cape Town. She started practicing yoga in 2006 and completed her 500 hour Teacher Training in 2013 in New York at the renowned ISHTA Yoga School while working and living there. The ISHTA approach caters for the individual student by combining the teachings of Hatha, Tantra and Ayurveda and emphasising finding the yoga that resonates with the individual’s spirit.

Elsa believes in the transformational power of yoga and meditation and how it positively impacts people’s lives. Yoga truly is for everybody and every body! She teaches vinyasa, Yin & Forrest Yoga classes to groups and individuals. All level students are welcome.
