Elaine Jackson
I am a devoted yoga nerd who came from a rehab medicine background (I recently retired from a career in occupational therapy) and I'm very experienced in modifying yoga for clients with special needs. I feel that Yoga Tune Up® has given me even more tools to draw on, and I use it extensively in my practice to deal with my own aches, pains and postural samskaras. I love teaching philosophy, meditation and pranayama, and frankly, I think yoga is whatever leads us inward toward insight and outward towards love.

Elaine Siu

I am a quirky individual of many interests and talents that make me extremely versatile and adaptable. I enjoy learning constantly and bringing new knowledge and experiences into improving all that I do, and teaching movement is no exception. I strongly believe that movement practices can and should be accessible to and fun for everyone, and as such my goal is to cultivate spaces and practices in which everyone can feel safe and empowered to take what they need in the moment. I aspire to inspire through movement, mindfulness, and music.
