“I always think of her classes/retreats as Goddess Yoga, a perfect blend of strong and restorative practices  all delivered with love, sensitivity and expertise. The level of connection that is created between participants is a tribute to her loving facilitation. I highly recommend it to everyone!!"

“Thank you for the most wonderful few days. You have opened up a new world of understanding for me. The retreat has truly been a life changing experience. I look forward to doing many more in the future. And of course the food and your cooking has been amazing too!”

I attended Elana's 2011 Women's Easter Retreat - it far exceeded my expectations, a truly amazing experience. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to develop their spiritual awareness and engage with the world. Apart from beautiful organic food and the surroundings of Byron Bay, we explored a variety of concepts and techniques catering to the physical, mental and spiritual.



Everywhere was a bit of a let-down after staying at your place Elana. I definitely want to come back every year for the rest of my life!



​For me, visiting Elana in Byron always feels like coming home. Her little sanctuary here offers a peaceful and joyous place to rest and rejuvenate. The best thing though has got to be the hugs that last forever. I hope other visitors feel the love and enjoy the tranquility as much as I have. Already planning my next visit!



Elana is an extraordinary teacher who combines an embodiment of the ancient female divine with a grounded practice in the present world that goes far beyond what I had ever thought of as “yoga” before.  She somehow manages to simultaneously combine these traits with her incarnation as a wise woman or spiritual elder, having walked many paths and bringing back the best of the world to share with her students.



Thank you so much for the wonderful time I had at Shakti Yoga Home Stay in Byron last week. You have created such a healing and tranquil energy, it really felt like an oasis of calm in amongst the busy time of Byron at that crazy Xmas/New Year time of the year. At Shakti Yoga all was calm and peaceful, in fact I had the best sleep there, making it the most relaxing and restful holiday I've had in Byron.
