Sunrise Yoga & Senior Services

Our Sunrise Yoga students and instructors have BIG hearts!

During this holiday season, we collected donations for Senior Services, Inc. whose mission is to help older adults remain at home for as long as possible and to help them live with dignity. We could not be more proud of how you responded to this need! Your donations filled three huge boxes and will provide much needed supplies for this wonderful organization and its clients.

Additionally, we donated $1 for every student who attended a class at Sunrise Yoga during this campaign. Your attendance turned into a whopping $559 donation for Senior Services! You showed up and we shared . . . a win win win for you, for us, and for Senior Services!!!

We are committed to the community around us and you help us keep that commitment in so many important ways. As 2017 comes to a close, we are very appreciative for each and every one of you and we truly cherish the connections we have to and through you. We look forward to continuing this journey with you into 2018!

Meet Elaine Round!

Meet Sunrise Yoga instructor, Elaine Round!

Elaine was initially drawn to yoga in 2007 when a gym director gently prodded her to join a class. Physically humbled by the experience, yet left with an unexpected feeling of calm, she decided to explore this yoga thing further.

Two years into her practice, she enrolled in the Sunrise Yoga Teacher Training Program as a way to deepen her knowledge of yoga. After completing the program as a 500-hour Certified Yoga Teacher, she pursued an additional 40 hours of training with Roger Cole in Restorative Yoga. With this training (and influences from many others), she brings to Sunrise classes designed to allow the body and mind to let go.

Elaine earned a PhD in Genetics from University of Washington. This interest in biology in general fuels her interest in the biology of why yoga has the effect it does on people and in the biology behind restorative yoga, in particular.

Elaine also studies Vedic Chanting with Sonia Nelson and Cheryl Oliver and is enrolled in the Yoga Therapy program with East Coast Yoga Therapy.
