Ellen Goldlust grew up in Northern Virginia and moved to Blacksburg with her family in 2000 after living in Charlottesville; Madison, Wisconsin; and Conway, Arkansas.
After dabbling in yoga on and off for years, she began practicing more seriously in 2011 while in the midst of a divorce. As her 2015 midlife crisis, Ellen decided to obtain her 200-hour certification, and she completed that training with Nicole Boyle at In Balance Yoga in Blacksburg in June 2016. In October 2016, she also completed BlossOMing Yoga’s Restorative Training.
For Ellen, yoga has been a way to help heal spiritual and physical injuries, and that’s the approach she takes in her classes, which focus on opening the body, releasing tension, and creating an inner calm that yogis can take with them off the mat. Ellen teaches a variety of styles but particularly enjoys gentle flow, prenatal, and aqua yoga.
