Since being diagnosed with scoliosis in her teens, Ellen Mackey has been aware of the importance of strengthening the body and maintaining flexibility. It was through this personal experience that she discovered the benefits of Yoga.

Ellen has a Masters in Education with classroom experience at the middle school level as well as community college instruction with Adults returning to the classroom. She completed her RYT 200 hour teacher training with Cyndi Lee in 2015. She has attended multiple workshops and continues self study, focusing on Yoga as we age and Yoga for back care.

Ellen brings knowledge of anatomy along with the gentleness of compassion to her teaching. She strives to share with her students the healing qualities of yoga – the union of breath, body and mind.
