For close to 20 years, Elise Maes Le Goff has been transmitting a very "down to earth approach" to yoga that can be practiced on and off the mat with humor, precision and joy. She enjoys a fluid yoga practice where breath and movement unite in a complete mind-body experience.
Elise has a extensive and varied teaching experience. She was trained by internationally reknown teachers and for the last 20 years she has also been getting tremendous input from translating workshops and trainings, and from assisting and teaching with inspiring figures in the international yoga community. Elise has studied different key aspects of yoga practice with special emphasis on biomechanics, therapeutic yoga, yoga history and philosophy.
Elise has over 1000 training hours. After a first training in Vinyasa Yoga with Gérard Arnaud who gave her a precise sense of rigorous alignment, Elise discovered the magic of Anusara Yoga with John Friend whom she studied with and translated for many years. Elise also attended and translated Yoga Teachers' Trainings led by Chris Chavez, Sianna Sherman, Christie Nones, Sundari, Christine McArdle where she gained strong knowledge in therapeutics and biomechanics.
Elise studied yoga philosophy and meditation with Carlos Pomeda and Professor Douglas Brooks. She has also translated and/or participated in a great number of workshops with great yoga teachers such as Patthabi Jois, Rodney Yee, Shiva Rea, Anne Vandewalle, Marc Holsman, Bo Forbes, Shanon Gannon, Seane Corn, Jason Nemer. Elise has herself trained dozens of yoga teachers.
