Ellen Richter-Norgel, RTY 500, MA, Ed. is a certified Kripalu Yoga Instructor. The Kripalu tradition offers an inquiry-based practice that inspires awareness of breath, body, heart and mind. Ellen loves Kripalu yoga for its rich tradition of cultivating compassion, creating energy and nurturing self-discovery. Her classes are created with intelligent sequencing that encourages awareness of sensation through the Kripalu methodology of Breath, Relax, Feel Watch and Allow.
While Ellen completed her 500 hour teacher training in August, 2016, she is a dedicated, lifelong learner of yoga studies and Ayurveda that informs her teaching and personal practice. Her initial certification was through Core Power Yoga®.
When not teaching or practicing yoga, Ellen works as an associate dean at a local university. And, as much as possible, she enjoys being in nature — kayaking, running, camping, biking, being with family and friends.
