YELENA CRAWFORD

I really had no idea what I was getting into when I started this beautiful and magical journey. For me, yoga provided a more efficient way of diving deeper within myself, and bringing me closer to my most authentic expression so that I can guide others onto the same path. I have a passion for healing: mentally, physically and spiritually... but I didn't quite know what to do with these gifts.  Yoga is becoming an outlet to do this in a more effective manner. The beauty behind this is being not only a teacher, but also a life-long student as well. I have a history of dance and gymnastics, started taking yoga classes in my living room with bare feet and no mat, took a few kundalini classes and also dabbled in arial yoga. After finding EnSoul I absolutely fell in love with Vinyasa and knew it would become a lifelong practice.

Just a few years ago my life was a mess and I could never have imagined leading a yoga class let alone speaking in front of people.  I battled a list of addictions, didn't know myself at all, lacked discipline and was extremely unhappy. Always looking for answers outside of myself.  One of the best decisions I ever made was to do EnSoul Yoga's Life and Teacher training in Mexico with Caren and Eric. What a life changer! Having not much previous background with yoga I fell in love with not just the physical practice but the philosophy as well.  I've been able to get out of my own head and become someone I never thought was possible. My mission is to help others do the same!

You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul.
