Matt Ellis

Hi everyone, my name is Matt and it’s fair to say I’m quite addicted to yoga. For over a year now yoga has been a central part of my life, complementing my sober life and because of it I’ve been able to become part of a wonderful global community of Yogis! I met Alex through a sober community and joined the MLPC in July 2020. I had hardly ever done yoga before and never thought it could be for me. I had taken a few classes with a friend I met through giving up alcohol, but when I joined the MLPC everything changed. I have done yoga almost every day for a year now and love it so much. I love all types of yoga, including Yin, Kundalini and restorative yoga, but mostly I love gentle Vinyasa flows.
I am a primary school teacher and also love to teach my school kids yoga. I think it inspired me to want to do my 200 hour yoga teacher training course which I am close to completing. Originally I wanted to do the course to improve my yoga skills, but now after teaching a summer season at the MLPC I am feeling inspired to share my new knowledge of yoga to other people. I believe anyone can do yoga and am passionate about people giving it a go and realising they can do it.
As well as yoga, I love to sometimes surf, play Ukulele and bass and recently I have been building things with lego! I look forward to seeing you in a class soon!
