Samantha Ellis


Integrating trauma informed care with an undergraduate education in psychology and social behavior, and a Masters of Science degree in Nutrition, Samantha aims to provide a healing and empowering practice to students of all experience levels. Samantha has guest lectured at several universities, is an advocate for queer and underserved communities, and aspires to bring awareness to anxiety, depression, PTSD, and cognitive health. Samantha emphasizes accessibility by encouraging participants to connect movement, breath, and mindfulness in order to feel authentic, present, and strong. Through hatha, vinyasa and restorative yoga, Samantha accommodates students by demonstrating multiple variations to honor an inclusive practice that feels safe and supportive to people of differing abilities. When not teaching yoga, Samantha enjoys a full-time job of educating clients about nutrition, teaching food accessibility to graduate students, sharing herbalism knowledge, creating music, and making puns.
