Welcome to Elmhurst Yoga Shala. We offer a wonderful selection of drop-in classes including many varieties and styles of yoga, Yoga for infants, children and teens, prenatal yoga and childbirth education. Our classes are taught in a clean, new, spacious studio, on beautiful floating wood floors with natural light. All mats and props are provided to help you experience a safe and peaceful place to begin a new yoga practice or to challenge and further explore an advanced practice. Daily group yoga classes are offered for all levels, including classes for the beginner and several classes for experienced students only. We also offer private yoga sessions, for more detailed instruction, as well as yoga therapy.
I take the Integrative Therapeutics Hatha Yoga on Tuesdays with Renee Mitchell and Thursdays with Linda Troutman. Both are excellent instructors that tailor the class to the students needs. Working with both I have been able to eliminate a back problem that was leading to back surgery. The classes have also been very beneficial in increasing my overall flexibility. I wish I would have started the classes years ago. All of the other instructors that have filled in or I have taken other classes with such as Juli Cronin and Ellie Taylor have been excellent also. I would highly recommend the instructors at Elmhurst Yoga Shala.
I am enjoying yoga tremendously. I take Linda's Yhursday at 8:38am and when I can I love Renee's Tuesday 10:00am class. They have both helped me in my transition from physical therapy to relatively normal life
Linda Troutman is THE best! Love her to pieces! She is very in time with my goals and needs with yoga and breathing and has taught me more breathing techniques than I have ever been taught in my life. Seriously, THE BEST!
