Elise Streckenbein

Elise came to yoga in search of a complement to her existing fitness regimen, but what she found was so much more. In yoga, Elise has found a physical challenge as well as an unexpected sanctuary rooted in an ancient practice. Yoga has played a transformative role for her; contributing to a major weight loss, healthier overall life style and a rewarding career path that invites compassion, self-study, and continuing education into everyday life.

As a graduate of the 2014 Dana Hot Yoga 200-hr Teacher Training program, Elise believes in a fiery, Yang, Vinyasa practice that is challenging both physically and mentally. As a teacher, she will help you push yourself past your own mental limits, while respecting the anatomical uniqueness of your body. Inviting deeper inquiry into silence, anatomy and the physical and energetic benefits of a Yin practice, Elise completed a Yin Yoga Training at Wake Up Yoga in January 2016. She continues to strive for the delicate balance of Yin & Yang.

Elise Streckenbein instructs the following:
  • Level 1/2 (Basic/Intermediate)
  • We pride ourselves on gearing our classes toward the actual students in the classroom and not teaching a set sequence of postures that may not be suitable for everyone. This class will blend the basics covered in Level 1 (Basic) classes with a more moderate pace which is introduced in Level 2 (Intermediate) classes, depending on who is in the room that day.  Basic postures will be covered, and more advanced modifications will be offered for those ready to deepen their postures and yoga practice. See our class descriptions for Level 1 and Level 2 classes for more detail.
