Founder and Principal Teacher at Adore Yoga, Nikola Ellis has been immersed in yoga for 25 years, studying with leading international teachers including TKV Desikachar, Judith Lasater, Donna Farhi, Ganesh Mohan, Michael de Manincor, Mark Breadner and Saraswathi Vasudevan.
In 2002 Nikola founded Adore Yoga, one of Sydney’s leading yoga studios, where she and her team offer a personalised, therapeutic style of yoga with only 8 students per class.
For the past decade, Nikola has specialised in yoga therapy and teacher training, using her wealth of experience to bring the philosophy and practice of yoga vividly to life. She developed Australia’s first AAYT accredited 650hr Yoga Therapy Teacher Training, the country’s most advanced recognised qualification in yoga.
Nikola is the training co-ordinator for the non-profit initiative A Sound Life, bringing yoga and music to under-served populations. She is also the founder of Pink Yoga, a project dedicated to making yoga available to women with cancer and has raised over $35,000 for research into women’s cancer.
