Ellen Forman’s BIO:

Ellen’s work is based on over thirty years of inquiry, experience, practice and study. Her journey towards health and holistic living started at age 15, after she lost her mom to cancer. She leads workshops, which include conscious nourishment and awakening the creative spirit, through yoga, art and mindfulness. She has an eclectic teaching style with a strong focus on the healing effects of the breath on mind, body and spirit. She combines playfulness and positive energy to inspire students to find balance and harmony in daily life. She specializes in gentle yoga and working with chronic stress, anxiety and depression and leads workshops and classes that address chronic stress in daily life. She works with individuals suffering from anxiety, depression, trauma and grief using the tools of yoga as a therapeutic approach towards balance and wellness.
