Ellen Johannesen


Ellen Johannesen started practicing Ashtanga Yoga in 1994 and holds a Level II Authorization from the KPJAYI Ashtanga Research Insitute in Mysore. She was one of the very first Ashtanga Teachers in Norway and founded the Ashtanga Yoga Oslo in 2002.

Nowadays, Ellen is an advanced series practitioner and a dedicated student of John Scott with whom she completed a 2-year YTT.

Ellen is deeply interested in Buddhism, and has lived for nearly 3 years in a Tibetan monastery in Bylakuppe, India. She later moved to Kathmandu, where she studied to become a Tibetan translator and interpreter, and completed a Masters Degree in Buddhist studies and translation. Currently, Ellen teaches Ashtanga Yoga in Kathmandhu and internationally. 

You can join Ellen this September 2020 for another spectacular Yoga Journey through Nepal's Kathmandu Valley
