I am very passionate about health and fitness! I am committed to helping clients reach their fitness goals by teaching training techniques and creating a balanced lifestyle to benefit everyone in their daily, functional activities.
I started my health and fitness journey over 20 years ago becoming a registered massage therapist at the Professional Institute of Massage Therapy. It fortified my sincere interest in wanting to engage with others while being able to offer more to contribute to their quest for better health. I attended Mount Royal University in Calgary Alberta to become a certified personal trainer, at the same time pursuing the challenges of successfully competing in the Fitness Routine category for 6 years. I continued my training and found more inspiration to become a yoga instructor. I am a very kind and caring person with utmost respect for my client’s special considerations, overall goals/needs and well-being. I sincerely enjoy working with others and share in their success, enjoyment and fulfillment.
My mission statement is to provide each client with professional, personalized service. This will be accomplished with safe, effective programs that focus on individual needs and goals. Each person will be treated with respect, care and compassion. Each goal will be faced with realism, support and optimism no matter how great or small.

Ellissa’s journey in the healing arts has paralleled her personal exploration of the mind body connection through Yoga asana and Vipassana meditation. While traveling in India in 2005, she was introduced to the Iyengar Yoga method, which focuses on therapeutic postural alignment and the efficient use of props. In 2010, Ellissa completed a yoga teacher training inspired by both Iyengar and Ashtanga methods under the guidance of Hart Lazer at United Yoga Montreal. She has participated in additional Yoga Ropes intensives to deepen her understanding and experience of yoga with rope wall. Ellissa has been teaching weekly Yoga classes in Nelson since 2010. Currently, Ellissa’s Iyengar-inspired Yoga classes dynamically weave together an exploration of postural alignment and Yoga Ropes.
