GUEST TEACHERS

Annie Elson & Holly Padove

Annie fell in love with Yoga the first time she stepped onto a mat in 1993 and has been voraciously studying ever since. Passionate about Restorative Yoga and all of its benefits, she was inspired to study with Judith Hanson Lasater and became certified in 2009 through The Yoga Tree in San Francisco. Numerous trainings and certifications later, Annie is now a 500- ERYT, owner / director of Yoga Village on the Central Coast of California, leads Yoga Alliance Teacher Trainings as well as Yoga retreats throughout the world. Annie is committed to making Yoga safe for every BODY, always introducing the most accessible version of each posture first before offering more advanced options. She is moved by how Yoga changes lives on every level - body, mind and spirit. Annie believes that while our practice begins on the mat, what we do with it in our everyday lives is the true essence of Yoga.

Holly’s lifelong quest for balance led her to Yoga, Tai Chi and meditation in her mid- 20’s. She found solace from her fast-paced life in the practices and also inspiration from the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda. Realizing her dharma was in the healing arts, she became passionate about natural health and wellness, becoming a massage therapist in 1992, and a Yoga Teacher in 1999. She also fell in love with the infinite wisdom of Ayurveda, earning a degree as a Clinical Ayurvedic Specialist in 2004. In 2012 a friend encouraged Holly to attend a Qi Gong workshop. That weekend the gentle, yet powerful movements of Qi Gong set in motion yet another path. She went on to train with Holden Qi Gong, receiving her teaching certification in 2013.

Holly also became certified as a Yoga Nidra facilitator in 2019, and has led retreats around the world for the past five years. She currently teaches numerous weekly Qi Gong and Yoga classes, offers Ayurvedic workshops including training Yoga Teachers, and offers personal Ayurvedic consultations.

Holly lives on the beautiful Central Coast of California with her amazing husband, two large dogs, a cat, a horse, two goats and four chickens! She also loves to travel the world, cook healthy meals with fresh picked veggies from her garden, ride her horse, and be active in the great outdoors.
