Ellen Huang first fell in love with yoga in 2003 when a friend corralled her and a couple friends to trek across town to a sweaty, power yoga class. It was in that first Savasana she experienced a deep sense of calm and contentment for the first time in her adult life. By 2006, despite her intense shyness and fear of public speaking, she found herself sharing her love of yoga to rooms full of students.
In 2007, Ellen received her 200-hour Teacher Training from acclaimed Alison West of Yoga Union in NYC, focusing on anatomy, structural alignment and yoga for scoliosis. She later received her 300-hour certification from Yoga Studies Institute, focusing on subtle body anatomy, meditation, and philosophy. In 2011, as Editor and Video Model, she studied and pored over the encyclopedia of 350+ yoga poses of Darren Rhodes' Yoga Resource Practice Manual, where she meticulously studied asanas in both an academic and experiential way. Ellen also studied meditation and dharma in the Tibetan Buddhist lineage with Jessica and Stéphane Dreyfus of Triveni Yoga School.
Ellen currently lives in Los Angeles, CA, with her husband and 4-year-old daughter, where she teaches both live and pre-recorded classes for her On Demand channel.
