i'm elliot (they/them). i'm a fat, white, disabled, atheist, agender, spoonie* who strives to create safe spaces for joyful movement & practical stillness for all humans.
i'm anti-diet, pro-self-empowerment, & have a HAES (health at every size) informed approach to wellness.before becoming a teacher, i had practiced yoga for over 15 years off & on. eventually i found my way back to a consistent practice including meditation & breathwork.
i live, practice, & teach with several chronic physical & mental illnesses including autoimmune & endocrine diseases, depression, anxiety, & suicidal thoughts.
my teaching philosophy is that i'm here to help my students build their own practice in order to empower themselves to gain all the benefits mindfulness has to offer.
when i'm not practicing or teaching mindfulness, i'm a wannabe artist, chef, & gardener.
