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.
