Elva began practicing in 2006. She fell in love with the practice right from the very first class. She was at first drawn to the physical benefits of the practice; she became stronger and more flexible. But it was the mental benefits that kept her coming back. After leaving her corporate job she decided to embark in the yoga teacher training at OSO where she obtained her 200-hour yoga certification. Elva is also Yogakids foundation trained because she believes that yoga is a wonderful tool to help spread kindness and empower children to live happy, healthy lifestyles.
