  • Yin Yoga: sequence of poses that focus on longer and passively held floor poses that lengthen connective tissue and fascia throughout the body to nourish and enhance range of motion in joints
  • Meditation: seated guided techniques that will help strengthen energy channels with a focus on pranayama
  • Yoga Nidra: also known as the art of conscious relaxation, it is one of the deepest of all meditations where the body and mind is in a state of conscious deep sleep to achieve incredible calm, quiet, and clarity

Ella Chissotti
Ella has been teaching yoga for 10 years. The first seven of those years she was teaching full time, up to 35 classes a week. She has taught throughout her home town of Minnesota including CorePower Yoga, Kula Yoga MN, Blooma, Studio 925, and Yoga Center Minneapolis.


Ella is trained mainly in Vinyasa Yoga. Her style of teaching is intuitive. Never knowing what is going to happen in the yoga room just as in life, she loves to be surprised by the process that unfolds every time. No posture is more, or less important, they all are essential, have a purpose, and all are equal like all beings in life. Through the yoga postures we can learn to address the challenges we find on the mat in the most healing of ways, aiding us to freedom and our purpose, so we can then apply that in life.


Over the years, she realized that she was asking her students to go for their dreams and yet was not fully going for hers, so three years ago, Ella started her own video/photography company in the hopes of eventually making films. Balancing teaching and starting her own company really changed the way she taught and how she viewed her students – she fully realized how essential and healing yoga is in processing all the situations and personalities that people deal with on a daily basis.


Ella’s raison d’etre is her 13 year old son, Moses. Besides her son and her passion for yoga, photography, and film, she also loves to write poetry, see art, cook, sit in the sun, swim, surf, dance, speak different languages, and listen to music. She has a weak spot for fashion and high-heels. Yoga saved her life and she is so grateful to have the honor to teach the practice and share all of its healing and insight in the most authentic way possible. She is forever grateful for all the incredible teachers that have graced her life–Sydney Holly, David Romanelli, Anna Chung, Monique Maxwell, Betsy Weiner, Kai Trihn, Nora Byrne, Nikki Peters, Deborah Brimacomb, Johnny Kest, Brian Kest, and so many more.


Anna Chung
In search of balance while working on Wall Street and training for her black belt in Tae Kwon-Do, Anna Chung found her escape in yoga. Although she has always enjoyed various athletic pursuits, including participating in marathons, tennis, and triathlons, it was her deep love for yoga that gave her the courage to leave her life as a hedge fund executive and follow her dreams of becoming a yoga instructor and entrepreneur.


After receiving her yoga teaching certification at Pure Yoga, she became further rooted in the yoga world as the co-owner of tanya-b, an urban-inspired yoga clothing line. Driven by her purposeful calling of making yoga fun and accessible, Anna discovered a passion for building brands rooted in community, creativity, and connectivity. With that in mind, she cofounded BYoga, a yoga studio in Montauk, NY, that helps others tap into yoga’s powerful and transformative influence. There, in addition to sharing her love of yoga as a teacher, she also curates fun music playlists to bring humor, joy, and good healing vibrations to each and every class.


In what little spare time she has, she also teaches at Yoga Vida, Equinox Sports Club, Pure Yoga, and Facebook as well as one-on-one private sessions and corporate events. Deeply passionate about connecting with students, teachers, and small business owners, she is focused on creating positive and memorable experiences through yoga and stoking the fire that lives inside all of us to uncover our grit, be resilient, take risks, and encourage one another to live our dreams.
