Ellen McQueen, yoga teacher in Paris
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 inspire 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 knowledgeable 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.
I began teaching yoga in studios in Paris, France, and then moved on to teach to private and corporate clients, at retreats and in teacher trainings. In 2020 I cofounded the studio Yoga Club Paris, and in 2021 co-hosted my first yoga retreat in Provence with Bono Events International.
Please do not hesitate to reach out for my full CV, or if you have any questions. I look forward to hearing from you.

yoga for everyone
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 workout or thirty minutes of gentle restoration.

"Ellen radiates warmth and calm as she teaches, be it from the top of the room in the studio, or through a computer screen on Zoom.
She has a unique ability to take any concept or asana and put it into words that can be understood with ease.
Her teaching is non-judgemental, accessible, energetic, powerful, yet calming. I come out of Ellen’s class feeling like both my body and mind have had the workout they need."
