Ellen Johannesen, originally a professional dancer, has practice Ashtanga yoga for more than 20 years. Her first meeting with Ashanga Yoga took place during a tour to New York in 1994, since then this has been her daily practice. Ellen first visited Mysore and Pattabhi Jois in 1997, she is now Authorized Ashtanga level 2 by Sharath Jois, and she has also completed a two-year Teacher Training with John Scott.
In 2002 Ellen became one of the founders of Ashtanga Yoga Oslo, one of the first studios offering daily Mysore practice in Norway and is the Principal teacher at her own studio.
An increasing interest in Buddhist practice brought her to Bylakuppe, South India, where she spent almost three years in a Tibetan Buddhist monastery. Ellen presently teaches Ashtanga and Buddhist Practices internationally as well as running her own Mysore Program in Kathmandu.
