Some of Ilene’s classes utilize Yoga Tune Up Therapy Balls to encourage myofascial release (self-massage). As a teacher Ilene aspires to opening this yoga gateway so others can realize what they never thought was possible. Students of Ilene’s say she is an authentic teacher that teaches completely from her heart. Her classes are supportive yet challenging, in a non-judgment zone. Students feel comfortable and safe to go to their edge, to try something new or to be right where they are in their practice. Ilene’s teaching style motivates her students to work to their full potential but remain calm and at ease within the challenge. She is grateful to all her teachers that she has been privileged to study with and who have inspired her along the way but most especially to Jagadisha Petrovic and Jody Domerstad who have influenced and touched her life immensely.
