Elise grew up on Salt Spring Island, where her love of yoga and meditation was first fostered. She completed her Modo level 1 training in 2015, and has been teaching sporadically in various communities on the west coast ever since. After finishing her undergraduate degree at Quest University in Squamish, Elise spent a few months cycling from Salt Spring to the end of the Baja Peninsula. She then moved to Vancouver and starting practicing and teaching at MYEV in February of 2018. For Elise, the Modo series offers the perfect opportunity to engage with self care. She is thrilled to be a part of the thoughtful, engaged, and progressive community of MYEV.

Elise is currently back at school, completing her Bachelors of Education at UBC with the goal of becoming a French immersion teacher. In her spare time, she likes growing her own food, going on long bike rides, and swimming in the ocean.
