Elisa first started practicing yoga during her undergraduate years to complement her training as a competitive rockclimber in university. As she attended more classes, the concept of aligning movement and breath towards a state of flow stood out particularly to her. She enjoys the progression that arises from a dedicated practice and believe that by being committed to yoga and its teachings, anyone can attain personal growth. In the summer of 2015, Elisa undertook the 200-hour yoga teacher certification at YogaWorks, New York City. The comprehensive course was developed by founder Maty Ezraty and rooted in the Ashtanga Vinyasa and Iyengar traditions. She is a registered teacher with the Yoga Alliance (RYT-200) and have since taught various private classes and workshops in the Netherlands and in Singapore.

She believe the key to a healthy practice is through an alignment-based asana teaching that recognises the abilities and needs of different bodies. Dynamic flow sequences combining graceful movements, strength and flexibility are the mainstay of her classes. Elisa's teaching mantra is that every pose is accessible to everyone via clarity in class instruction and safe hands-on adjustments.
