5 star rating Elise has been working with me for many years. She is a wonderful teacher, very patient. Elise explains all yoga positions and stretches very clearly. It is a pleasure to have her helping me with yoga practice.
As a pediatrician and yoga practitioner with scoliosis, I can't recommend Elise enough for people of all ages with scoliosis. She is the preeminent yoga teacher for scoliosis in this country, if not the world. I have been studying with her for over 15 years and am so grateful for her teaching. She has empowered me to understand and work with my body in a way that very few do in the world of scoliosis. I recommend her books/dvds/classes to every teen that I diagnose and every adult that I meet. Having access to her classes on line during this pandemic has been one of the gifts of this time!
I have been studying with Elise for 10 years, and I don't know what I would do without her. I have taken classes and private sessions. Elise's depth of knowledge is impressive, but even more so is her ability to listen and to adapt poses to one's particular physical needs and limitations. She has helped me address many challenges (regarding hips, neck, and shoulders), and working with her has improved my physical and mental wellbeing enormously.

Elise Miller is a wonderful yoga teacher: very knowledgeable and incredibly patient with her students. She's been a lifesaver for me, teaching me poses that will help prevent my scoliosis from getting worse. I think she's one of the best yoga teachers for scoliosis in the Country. I was delighted when she began doing class on line so I could attend.
I was introduced to Elise many years ago by Rocky my Iyengar teacher in DC. when I first realized that I had scoliosis. I have participated in may of Elise's workshops and have had a number of 1 and 1 (private). Elise is warm, clear in her teachings, approachable and extremely knowledgeable. My neurosurgeon keeps on telling me to keep up with yoga as it is keeping me from my curve getting worse. Actually I have improved my curve. My practice following Elise's direction is keeping me pain free. I am so happy that I can see her more often now that we are on line. In my book she is the best. .
