What my yogi companions have to say


Eliana has been a pillar in my growth and expansion.  For the past 10 years I have worked with her in various capacities, as both a therapeutic yoga and Ayurvedic guide.  My life has been transformed in ways that I never thought where possible.  Eliana’s skills, compassion, wisdom and gentle guidance have been perfect from conception thru now.  I continue to work with her for my continued ever-changing condition and to build a flowing practice.  Bottom line, Eliana is a gift from God.

Brazilian-born Eliana Moreira, as she likes to put it, was born dancing. The night of her birth, her mother had been out dancing in São Paulo to the rhythms of samba.

For 20+ years, Eliana guides a practice based on her studies and direct experiences in Yoga, Ayurveda,  Pilates, and Samba. She is passionate about movement, energetics, anatomy, breath, mantras, Ayurveda, nutrition and cooking — which greatly inform the teachings.

Eliana focuses on personalizing practices, even in class settings.  She sees students internationally with the full gamut of physical and psychological conditions. She teaches classes with a holistic focus, integrating the wisdom of various traditions. As a guide, Eliana fosters the student's deepening intimacy with themselves, and inspires skillful self-practice.

Eliana’s work is featured in the first medical textbook on yoga therapy, The Principles and Practice of Yoga in Health Care (Handspring Publishing, 2016).  


If diligent, everyone, even the young or the old or the diseased, gradually obtains success in yoga through practice.
