Elke Wood— Evolve Hot Yoga Instructor

 

Elke tried her first yoga class in search of a new fitness outlet after competing in alpine ski racing up to the collegiate level. She found a new love of heated Vinyasa yoga, and discovered the benefits she felt in her body. As her practice advanced, she was amazed by what her body was capable of. Not only was yoga beneficial physically, but she also experienced a deeper mental focus and better outlook on life as she continued to dive into her practice. 

 

In the fall of 2013, after two years of practicing yoga, Elke signed up for teacher training at CorePower Yoga in Minneapolis, MN to pass on the benefits she found in yoga. Elke’s history as an athlete renders into her challenging classes, where she emphasizes pushing physical limits, but always understanding them. 

 

Motto: Each yoga practice is a unique expression of the individual!

I strive to teach classes where presentness, pranayama, and self-care are interwoven with the physical asanas.
