  • Review by Emily Coleman from Europe

    "Elisa is a wonderful teacher. She has a great depth of knowledge and an intelligent approach - but what makes her really special is the warmth, humour and personality that she brings into her teaching. Her classes are friendly and inclusive, with something for everyone. Very highly recommended!."

  • Review by Jann Neilson from Europe

    "Elisa is simply the best, she is an advertisement for yoga proving its not all about doing the most incredible poses. She is as great with beginners and she is with more experienced pupils. I started yoga aged 62 on her yoga holiday to Goa and have been attending classes ever since and have now been on retreats with her to Turkey and Kerala. It's not always easy but I love the challenge that she offers us and can't wait for the next trip!"

    "I'm a devotee of Elisa Williams, I stumbled across her class several years ago and have followed her around ever since - even to Turkey. Her style is welcoming and professional she gets the best from her students whatever level they are and has an incredible ability to bring beginners into an open class with everyone feeling confident and catered for."

    "When one door closes another opens; we often look, but we often look so long and regretfully at the closed doors that we dont see the one that has opened."
