Ellen Johannesen


Ellen Johannesen started practicing Ashtanga Yoga in 1994 and holds a Level II Authorization from the KPJAYI Ashtanga Research Insitute in Mysore.

Ellen was one of the very first Ashtanga Teachers in Norway and founded the Ashtanga Yoga Oslo in 2002. Ellen is now 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 at the Pranayama Yoga in Kathmandhu and is a highly appreciated and popular teacher for both workshops and retreats in Nepal and in Norway.

We are thrilled to be offering a gorgeous Ashtanga Yoga Retreat 'A Mountain Sadhana' in Nepal's Kathmandu Valley with Ellen this October 2018!
