Ella Cojocaru is equal parts Eastern European drill sergeant (she'll say so herself, in her very charming accent) and uber-encouraging bestie. She opens her class with a reading from a yoga master, to remind you what yoga is really all about, before jumping into her no-nonsense vinyasa flow. Ella leads you through creative, non-stop sequences for the first hour of class, but she never loses sight of your alignment (seriously, she will flat out tuck your butt under for you if you don't listen the first time). She will also spend ample time breaking down the ever-intimidating arm balances she throws into her flows. This class draws a crowd of hip and very seasoned yogis, but Ella and her devoted students are extremely warm, welcoming and supportive  – even when you fall flat on your face in your crow-to-handstand transition. This is a humbling class with lots of laughter, sweating and shaking amongst a very fun group of Los Feliz yogis. Note: You'll be feeling this class two days later.

Ella has changed my life

Ella is the most caring teacher I have ever had. She pushes me to my limits, not hers and then gives me permission to fail and try again. She is never judgmental, she makes reaching the goal almost more fun then attaining the goal. She is a hawk for alignment and doing things to prevent injury. The real magic of Ella is through her yoga teachings, she changes the way you look at the world, and encourages you to recognize your fear for what it is, in your mind, but still respect the fact it's there. By doing this Ella has helped me grow as a person. I am 57 and she is constantly teaching this old dog new tricks on and off the mat.
