Hi, I'm Elyce. I'm glad you are here.
I want to help you cultivate serenity in your day so that you move forward in your life from a centered, wholistic place. Yoga, meditation and Feng Shui have helped me and I know they can help you, too!
Here is a bit of my story: I began my journey with yoga over twenty years ago when I found a yoga book while traveling in Spain. Yoga poses helped me to be in my body. I was an in my head person. Back then, the only way I was in my body was by critiquing it and beating myself up, which really only further distanced me from myself.
- I have learned so much about myself over the past twenty-something years of yoga and meditation. For example, I've learned my attention span can be fleeting if I have too much going on. I have learned that my resistance to things (anything!) usually has to do with fear. I have learned that feelings and emotions are stored deep in my muscles and organs, and that they rise up to be addressed when I allow myself to be vulnerable.
- In Feng Shui I've learned that my home is an extension of my inner life. And that the more I love myself and identify what I want to cultivate for myself, my family and for others, the more that love shows up in my home, or in my bank account, or in my healthy body. And when I know why I want to cultivate all that goodness, the good stuff shows up even more.
Certification: I am a certified 200-hour yoga professional. I have nearly twenty years of teaching experience with adults and children. I teach Hatha, Vinyasa and Restorative, as well as postnatal. I teach mindfulness and yoga techniques to K-8 students in underserved public schools of the Bronx, Manhattan and Brooklyn. My Feng Shui certification is in the Western BTB tradition.
Education: I have both a BFA and a MFA. I am a performance and video artist. My solo work has been commissioned and presented in the US, the UK, Europe, and Asia.
And, last but not least, I live in Brooklyn, NY with my ten year old son. I keep my sanity in check with healthy eating, meditation, yoga, Feng Shui, walks in nature, hot baths with epsom salts and essential oils and a good romantic comedy every now and then. I try to walk my talk! My son and I do not currently have any pets, but are endlessly discussing the options. When I'm not meditating, teaching or giving Feng Shui consultations, I can be found perusing design blogs, playing card games, doing science projects, riding my bike, taking photographs, cooking new recipes and reading in bed.
