Ellie Steel

Dharma, Rocket & Ashtanga Teacher

Ellie’s was first introduced to yoga whilst travelling in India in 1996, during which time she developed a committed self-practice and deep love of yoga. In 2006 she began to teach yoga, which was a natural progression from her background in alternative therapies and sports therapy. She is passionate about sharing the knowledge she has accumulated over the past 20 years of study, practice and teaching and her teaching style reflects her knowledge of anatomy as well as the spiritual aspects of yoga. 

Ellie first practiced and studied with Sri Dharma Mittra in 2006 and this was the turning point in her life and her practice. She undertook an advanced 500 hr Dharma yoga teacher training with Sri Dharma at his New York centre and she practices regularly with her teacher and mentor Mark Kan. Ellie believes that yoga is a journey and you never stop learning: her desire to expand her knowledge and experience led her to further studying Rocket yoga with Jamie Clarke and Dulcie Aguilar (The Yoga People) and Vinyasa Flow with Heather Elton. Ellie's life is practice and practice is her life and it is her sincere wish to spread the teachings both physically and spiritually to help improve the lives of others. She firmly believes that yoga is for everyone and it is her mission to spread the joy of yoga and make it accessible to all. Her motto is to relinquish any expectations of what yoga practice should or shouldn’t be and just allow the yoga to flow through you and enjoy it in the moment.
