“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!!" 

— Elvina Munir,

Sound Healer & Musician

“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!”

'Elana's place has been a complete Blessing! Her energy, light and brilliant soul are present to be shared with the guests that have the honour to stay at her house. I loved every single detail of my stay here. The magical garden, the yoga studio, the cleanliness, the sound healing, yoga practices and chanting with her was amazing. thank you so much Elana!!!'

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.
