"My ground is the play of bravery and vulnerability"  I aim to offer an approachable yoga experience. My classes are dynamic, thorough, and open. I work with a person, not just a formula. Classes are a space where questions can be (discovered) discussed or answered, and we can find new liberating understanding of our unique yoga practices at any "level'.  Exploration, curiosity & discovery are what fuel my inspiration as a student and as an instructor, shaping the atmosphere of the class setting.

Elsa Wadsworth

I am an Alexandria native. I have been practicing yoga for 10+ years. My passion for yoga is ever growing, and it never ceases to amaze and inspire me. Yoga continues to reveal itself to me, and me to myself! I am trained in Ashtanga yoga, (the 'grandfather' to styles such as vinyasa, flow, power yoga, hot yoga, bikram yoga). I also love and study Iyengar yoga.

My teaching style draws from my personal experience on the mat and all of my training. I do not strictly adhere to one tradition but rely on them to inform me, my instruction, and what I share with my fellow practitioners. 

I also practice and love meditation, I especially like the idea that it is 100% experiential, just like yoga! And really, it is yoga, it sits at the root of all 'postures' or 'asanas' and our practice. It is said that all yoga practices are performed to prepare the body & mind for meditation. I offer meditation techniques based in working with the breath and mindful awareness.
