Elisa discovered yoga over 15 years ago while racing as an elite triathlete representing the Cayman Islands in international races. Quickly falling in love with yoga she went on to become a yoga teacher in 2010 and has been teaching ever since. Combined she has over 500 hours of teacher training, 300 of those hours with Jimmy Barkan.
Originally from England, she previously traveled the world working as a scuba diving instructor/photo pro and yachtie. She is a 200 ton boat captain and FII free-diving instructor in addition to her yoga qualifications.
Elisa completed the Barkan 40 classes in 60 days challenge last year in preparation for brain surgery to fix a rare CNS condition she was suffering from. She felt strong going into surgery and healed quickly, returning to her practice with no time to waste.
Elisa’s classes are strong and dynamic, with a healthy dose of nurturing at the end 🙂
