Elsie Escobar, a native of El Salvador began her love affair with yoga in 1997. She completed her formal training at the Center for Yoga in Larchmont (now Yogaworks) under the guidance of Diana Beardsley, and also completed the Integrative Yoga Therapy Program created by Joseph Le Page, focusing on the therapeutic aspects of yoga, mainly geared toward introducing yoga as a healing modality to those encountering either physical or emotional health challenges.In 2000 she found the wild joy in her heart through Anusara Yoga developed by John Friend, a uniquely integrated style of hatha yoga in which the artistic glory of the human heart blends magically with the scientific principles of biomechanics. She continues to study fervently with John Friend and many amazing certified Anusara teachers: Naime Jezzeny, Sue Elkind, Noah Maze, Desiree Rumbaugh and many others. Her classes are full of playfulness, smiles (and/or laughter) and strong commitment deeply grounded in self-honoring, acceptance and building community.Elsie, has now undertaken a new path. The love affair of yoga has now been met by an equal passion for podcasting. She has been podcasting since July 2006 and hopes to continue doing it, in as many ways as possible. She has a successful and inspiring weekly podcast simply named “Elsie’s Yoga Class: Live and Unplugged,” which is just that, her live yoga classes sent out to those who subscribe and available to those who happen to stumble upon them on her website: Elsie’s Yoga Kula. What’s so cool is that this is all free! She has currently begun to add supplemental video podcasts, hints and tips to her current yoga podcast, and is developing her new video podcast.Elsie’s Website:www.elsiesyogakula.com.
