Elise Greenspoon

Assisting in Mysore program / Teaching 4-5.30pm Hatha Flow / Detox consultant / offers past life regression

Elise Greenspoon is a KPJAYI authorized level 2 ashtanga instructor with over a decade of experience in practice, ayurveda and eastern philosophies.

In her first year of university while studying world religions, Elise was first introduced to new cultures and ways of thinking which opened her to a new way of living and a different course of thinking. She began to explore eastern philosophies and tried a variety of styles and practices including hatha yoga, kundalini yoga, buddhist meditation and yin yoga.

Finally, she came across ashtanga vinyasa yoga and immediately fell in love. Shortly after, she made her first of many journeys to Mysore, India where she immersed herself in the lineage of the practice.

There, she also learned past life regression therapy and many other healing techniques that she is still practising and mastering today. Elise believes that the path of yoga can help to heal all of our sufferings and allow us to live to the peak of our potential as human beings. Caring deeply about the planet and raising awareness, she is always enthusiastic to share her knowledge and experience with people from all around the world.
