Disclaimer: this isn’t your usual yoga blog. Here, you’ll get lost in the world of ideas and emotions, and you’ll rarely receive black-and-white answers to your questions. Get exploring, learning, and thinking with me as I uncover the topics of love, freedom, spirituality and beyond.

Must Reads


This is me, Ely, pronounced Ellie or /ˈeliː/ if you speak phonetics.

I’m a writer, a thinker, a yoga teacher, a slow mover, a traveler, and quiet woman with a very loud mind. In writing is where I feel comfortable to share my ideas, thoughts, and the medium I use to encourage and invite others like you to think about who we are and the world we live in.

My approach to yoga resembles our very own human nature — it is multi-dimensional and bound to evolve over time. My work currently consists of writing for different yoga-related platforms and wearing the hat of the editorial director at Shut Up & Yoga, a visual independent digital magazine (and I might have mixed up the order of these adjectives).

If you like my words, please feel free to join my formerly weekly newsletter by clicking here. What you’ll see is an invitation to receive a meditation workbook and audio (which you will receive) but I’m in the process of brainstorming (… the irony of this statement isn’t lost on me) a new little something you can receive instead of the workbook. Although I like it, it doesn’t quite reflect where I’ve arrived since its creation in February 2018.

Anyways.

And no, I didn’t plan on writing this today, just like that, but I’m a bit tired of my propensity to procrastinate through planning and overthinking. Spontaneity and intuitiveness are part of my personality, and I’m determined to use them more often — starting now.

If you’d like to start a conversation, explore a question about the world/life/the universe/creativity/zero-waste/introversion/all-the-aforementioned or send gifs of cute cats, email me. I look forward to reading you. :)

With love & curiosity, always,

Ely
