California in her heart and Filipino by blood, this island girl lives in tune with the rhythms of the earth, the sea and the moon.

On paper, Ellie received her Bachelor of Arts in Economics at UCLA. Continued on to work in publicity and marketing at The Walt Disney Studios, then in front of the camera in film, TV, commercials, music videos and print. This is also when she first found yoga.
In spirit, she called for more depth in her being. A voice called for healing. And then it called for Bali. In Bali, she found a love rekindled—for the ocean, the earth and life.
She sold everything in Los Angeles and left with a surfboard, a yoga mat and a suitcase to travel with her love. First stop, was the Blissology yoga teacher training with Eoin Finn in Canggu, Bali. In Blissology, she found a heartfelt supportive community, a deeper love and understanding for yoga and a voice that began to speak her truths.
Ellie’s free spirit has planted her roots in Bali, Indonesia. She loves to flow with the pulse of the universe. She believes that magic is everywhere and inspires others to find it too.
