An eternal yoga student, regional yoga teacher, Connected Warriors, Inc. volunteer, mother of 2, and military spouse Felicia finds herself these days creating balance between home life, self practice, and teaching.

"Most importantly I want to pass along my passion for yoga to new students as well as help invigorate and renew that passion for existing students."

Elisa Hines is a native Tennessean, born in Cookeville, that has lived in Clarksville most of her life. Her passion with yoga lies in devotion or the spiritual side of yoga (Bhakti yoga) and service to others (Karma yoga). Yoga has been a constant in her life for the past several years. She started the practice to find physical balance, but in turn yoga taught her more about the internal balance we all seek. In Elisa's class you can expect a slower and more alignment based teaching style for all levels. She is a 200hr RYT with additional certifications in Hot Yoga, Vinyasa, Restorative, and Yin Yoga. 
As Elisa is also a 625 hour certified Ayurvedic Wellness Counselor through Kerala Ayurveda in California, she enjoys helping students create a sense of balance in their lives through Yoga and Ayurveda. Ayurveda is the sister science to Yoga that deals primarily with the physical body whereas Yoga deals with the spiritual body (or mind piece).
