Elisa Barretta Yoga 

         "Yoga is the journey of the Self, through the self, to the Self."

                                                                                                   (Bhagavad Gita)



Through my longtime personal practice, I have come to know the many benefits of yoga, both physical and spiritual.  My practice has helped me grow stronger, healthier, happier, more flexible and fearless, both on and off the mat.  In deep appreciation for the gift of Yoga in my life, it is my honor to share these teachings with others.

​​
I completed my 200 Hour Training through YogaWorks and my 300 Hour Training through Rina Yoga.   I am a Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT 500), Advanced Level Reiki Practitioner, and am CPR/AED certified.  I am currently working towards becoming an Urban Zen Integrative Therapist.  


I love that Yoga is a constant process of learning and unlearning and I am forever grateful to both all of my teachers and all of my students for showing me that Yoga has the capacity to challenge and stimulate any and every student.  I am inspired by and experienced with yogis of all levels and am honored to share the transformative power of yoga with anyone who is eager to discover the joy and peace of practice...  
 
My classes combine creative sequencing, and attention to alignment and safety with a relaxing touch of inspiration to guide you deeper into the moment.  You will step off the mat feeling relaxed, realigned, and revitalized.


"Yoga is a light, which once lit, will never dim.  The better your practice, the brighter the flame."

                                                                                                 (B.K.S. Iyengar)


Namaste!
