Elaine Braden

I began practicing yoga in 2000, and with consistent practice, began to let go of self-doubt, fear, anxiety, and negativity. By letting go, I was able to open myself to self-love, peace, joy, and life. My yoga practice began as a form of healthy exercise. I was suffering from lower back pain that I now realize was due to stress and anxiety. After my first class I experienced a breakthrough of letting go of suppressed feelings. I have found it to be such a life-changing experience that I wanted to share the gifts of yoga with others, and began teaching in 2004. My intention is to awaken in others the healing power of breath and movement, thereby opening our hearts and connecting with our spirit to gain a greater sense of freedom, acceptance, unconditional love, gratitude, and compassion towards ourselves and others.
