ABOUT THE OWNER
My name is Alex Arias founder of Elite Yoga. I founded Elite Yoga after the birth of my 4th child. Coming back from Hong Kong into the US was a challenging transition for me. At my heaviest weight and feeling the need to find a better connection between my mind, body and spirit, I got immersed into learning all I could about Yoga. Not finding a studio to meet my needs, classes were packed, a big emphasis on fitness during yoga, a comparative spirit and the number of injuries people were experiencing left me discouraged. I open Elite Yoga so people find the incredible connection and benefits of YOGA. The name I chose came from my Spanish roots, the best!!! I wanted to bring the best yoga experience I could to my clients and students.
I was a successful ballerina in Ecuador for 10 years performing in Europe. Because I was a fitness instructor for 6 years, I am very mindful of the difference between a Yoga class and a fitness class. I am a 500hr E-RY and YACPT with 12 years of yoga teaching experience. I am grateful to offer all 28 years of experience to help Elite Yoga students live their best lives.
Thank you for choosing to practice with us.
