Ellissa Gilbert

Yoga Instructor

Now retired from her treeplanting career (after planting a couple million trees all over BC!) Ellissa is now a carpenter by trade, and a Yogi by choice. She loves to be upside down on her mat, but also loves to just lay down... it’s all about balance! She completed her 200 hr YTT in 2016, in Nelson with Mama Joy, and started to teach shortly thereafter. She still mixes up her right from her left, and occasionally stumbles on words in the English language, but she is always curious about new ways to stretch the body and ready to venture into new poses. Yoga is where she found the beautiful combination of feeling light as a feather and strong as a rock! And this is exactly the feeling she has committed herself to sharing with you!
