About Me

Hi there and welcome to Enlivening Elle! I’m Elle, a yoga teacher, biology graduate and blogger based in York. To find out more about Enlivening Elle, click here, or read on to hear more about me.

I qualified as a vinyasa yoga teacher in 2017. I trained with Green Lotus yoga, and you can hear more about my experience here. I was taught a style of vinyasa called progressive vinyasa that takes inspiration from the Ashtanga lineage, as well as influences from Iyengar. As a biology grad, I place great importance in anatomy, so I LOVED this aspect of my course and try the weave this into my classes. I want to make sure that you are moving in the most safe, intelligent and efficient way when you’re in my classes. My movement philosophy is that it is important to find a balance of mobility, strength, and cardiovascular fitness. The means by which you achieve that isn’t important, so long as you’re moving in a way that feels good for you, and you enjoy. I teach regular studio classes, work with 1-2-1 clients and teach for events, such as those by Flourish Events Co.

I graduated university with a First Class degree in Marine Biology with international experience, focusing my dissertation on assessing sustainably-labeled seafood. This has put me in a unique position in the health and fitness industry so to give you some insight I have written a series of guides and articles here. I’ve been accepted onto an AFN registered Masters’ in Nutrition in autumn 2019, to continue my education and expertise. 

Alongside Amie of Fitness Forster, I am the Yorkshire ambassador for the Health Bloggers Community. We are hugely passionate about living in the north. of England and its growing health and fitness scene. We organise exciting events for bloggers in the region, which you can find more about here. I’m making it my mission to bring more brands, studios and events to northern cities. I have worked with Filmore and Union, and created events in collaboration with Sweaty Betty Supersonic Fitness and more. You can join us on Facebook here!
