When I first heard about yoga, I laughed and said it was for hippies. Eventually I was persuaded to take a class with a friend, and I hated it! It was too slow, and I wasn’t flexible. I never wanted to do it again!
Luckily, Groupon was offering a special at a nearby hot yoga studio, and I decided to give it another chance. It was challenging, I wasn’t good at it, but it kept me coming back. Fast forward a few years after exploring several yoga styles, and I eventually became a certified teacher.
Its been 7+ years after my first yoga class, and I love the practice more every time I step on my mat. It’s healed many of my own health issues & mental struggles, including anxiety, body dismorphia, and depression. Because of this, I practice and teach based on a collection of my own life experiences in order to help others who are struggling with the same issues. I believe that yoga can be very healing for the mind & body, and sometimes one simple yes can chagne your life – I’m living proof!

I’ve been active ever since I was little. From playing basketball with my brother, doing gymnastics in high school. and running after college, moving my body is my favorite activity to do. It calms my mind, makes me feel good, and is even a way to release some serious emotions!
While the body is a huge part of working out, there are 2 other major components of balancing the body, and that includes your mental state & what you put in your body.
I created a 3-month workout guide that incorporates mind, body, and nutrition to help you get in shape, lose weight, feel better about YOU, and guide you towards choosing better food options. Check it out below, along with free workouts posted weekly on my instagram!!
What People Are Saying
“…I am absolutely loving Nina Elise’s 12-week guide. It’s a sensible, uncomplicated approach to health and fitness that isn’t at all intimidating or restrictive. For the first time pretty much ever, I feel like I’m doing something good for my body instead of trying to punish it…. This plan makes me feel so much better about myself while encouraging me to get even better!”
“Finally found a yoga instructor who could gear her class to help individually those with different experience levels. I’m a beginner and often felt intimidated in other yoga classes. While in class with Nina she helped me modify some moves and positions that were too difficult for me while maintaining the class for those more experienced. She also gave me individual instruction on how to work on specific problem areas like stretches for my neck and lower back.”
“Nina is an amazing yoga teacher and personal trainer!! She worked with me one-on-one to show me exercises that help strengthen my core, which has always been my weakest area -especially after having a baby. Within weeks, I noticed my core getting stronger! She is very easy going which makes excercising with her very enjoyable and fun. You can tell that she genuinely wants to help her clients be the best version of themselves!”
