Meet Ellen McQueen

Hello! I am an American yoga instructor currently teaching in Paris, France.  In 2017 I received my 200 hour Ashtanga Vinyasa certification from Kranti Yoga in Goa, India.

Since I began practicing yoga at fifteen years old I have been amazed by its ability to ameliorate the health of both the mind and body.  In the classes I teach, the spiritual aspect and mental benefits of yoga are just as important as the physical practice.  My English Literature and Creative Writing background inspires encouraging themes and intentions that I incorporate into each class.  I love designing playlists to influence movement and serenity.  

My goal for each class is that students leave feeling more joyful, calm and knowledgable about the practice of yoga than when they arrived.  I am a strong believer that the energy, skills and zen cultivated in a yoga class are not only valuable for the mental and physical state of the yogi, but also for the energy he or she will share with others.

Can't wait to see you on the mat :)

By offering yoga to your coworkers you are providing them with a strategy to reduce stress, enhance efficiency and promote physical wellness.  Classes are held directly in your place of work and can be modified to fit any level and style.


Private classes are held in the comfort of your home.  They can be one-on-one, or in a group.  I design classes based on each individual's physical and mental capabilities and goals.  Classes can range from dynamic and challenging to restorative and meditative.


As an avid traveler who's had the opportunity of staying at a vast array of hotels around the world, I understand the importance of physical health and mental relaxation while abroad for tourism or business.  I am able to offer your clients a yoga class completely tailored to their needs, whether that be two hours of intense physical work out or thirty minutes of gentle restoration.
