Ellie Perry - Vinyasa Yoga
Ellie is originally from Sacramento, but moved up to Tahoe 5 years ago after graduating from Chico State. She fell in love with yoga, at first as physical exercise, and was later swept off of her feet by its mental and emotional benefits. Ellie decided to pursue the chance to be able to share this love with others by completing a 200hr yoga teacher training Bali last fall. Her classes are varied, and while she enjoys bringing up the heat with a vinyasa flow, she also values the importance of a mellow, restorative class. She aims to provide students with a space in which they can get what they need, both mentally and physically. Ellie enjoys being playful on and off the mat and is excited to practice with everyone at HAF!
