Aasha Elliott welcomed yoga into her life at a time when she was desperately seeking a "life-line". She first experienced the essence of "surrender" while melting into the exhale of a supine twist. Aasha continues to deepen her ability to surrender, to trust the divine and to open her heart through practice and through teaching. Aasha is deeply grateful for her connection to Shambhava™ Yoga and to her living teacher Babaji Shambhavanda for the teachings and for unlimited opportunities for personal growth.
Aasha received her 200-Hr Hatha Yoga Teacher Training certification through Chi-Town Shakti in 2012 and has been enrolling in and completing advanced trainings ever since (see below for certification/training information). Aasha also completed Meditation Teacher Training through The Chicago Ashram and is committed to daily yoga and meditation practices of her own. Aasha is passionate about sharing these invaluable practices that have become such an integral part of her life. In 2015, she began assisting with Yoga Teacher Trainings at Chi-Town Shakti and in 2016 became co-owner of Chi-Town Shakti Yoga + Meditation (a Shambhava Yoga Center in Chicago) with her business partner and fellow instructor, Elena Tinaglia.
Aasha also obtained a Masters in Clinical Social work from Loyola University Chicago (2009) and works as a Clinical Social Worker. She frequently integrates yoga and meditation practices into her sessions with clients.
Aasha offers yoga and meditation classes, leads teacher trainings and workshops, and private individual and group instruction.
