About us

Elise is an innovative and inspiring mind/body professional and the founder of EliseJoanFitness – a ground breaking new site that allows members to mix-and-match videos in yoga, fitness, and barre to create their own customized workouts and yoga flows (from 10min to 2 hours) and save their favorites as playlists.  Elise’s rhythmic Yoga flows are dynamic and athletically challenging, while keeping a philosophical base that opens up the mind and expands the heart.

Elise infuses her joyful, alignment-based sequences, with her intuitive style of teaching that transcends the mat by bringing the wisdom of yoga into everyday life.  She is a headliner for the Wanderlust Festivals and the creator of several best selling yoga, ballet and fitness DVDs for SHAPE, Gaiam, element and Exercise TV among others. Elise is certified by the National Yoga Alliance, and holds multiple fitness certifications from Schwinn cycling, to core fusion and sculpting. EliseJoanFitness is launching a partnership with lululemon and The Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts this spring which will bring her videos to every room of the resort in Whistler before moving internationally.

Deeply passionate about coaching people to their “Best Life”, you can expect to leave Elise’s retreats motivated and transformed with a deeper perspective of Joy and presence. In addition to her public classes, Elise writes for LA Yoga and Livestrong, and teaches elite athletes for Red Bull and ZICO, as well as player development for the USC Football team.

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
