A Bit About Elyssa
Elyssa Swann has been a dedicated personal fitness & lifestyle coach and health activist since 2002. While she has practiced yoga for 25 years, she attained her Yoga Teacher Certification in 2013 and has been working as an enthusiastic yoga instructor ever since. She has taught at high-end gyms, The Yoga Expo in Los Angles, corporate businesses, music festivals, popular yoga studios and worked with personal clients. Elyssa has worked hard to offer knowledgeable, balanced and challenging classes that are accessible to her diverse practitioners. She strives to stay educated and up to date with the health and yoga industries to continually keep classes fresh and fun. She has always been drawn to building community and was inspired to create her own yoga lifestyle brand called AwareWolf in 2021.
After two and half years of serving the community, Elyssa and her business partner decided to close AwareWolf. In order to continue to create a safe place for the community to come together, Elyssa founded Wolf & Lion in July of 2023 and has been committed to offering the San Diego yoga community unique classes and experiences ever since. She created a signature class called Wolf Spirit Flow that combines the styles of Vinyasa flow with four attributes of the “Wolf Spirit”: living life powerfully with passion, authentic self-expression, and trusting your intuition. Elyssa strives to live by these attributes and bring that energy to all her offerings. If she's not hanging at the studio, you can find her spending time with her husband and their daughter, dancing under disco ball sparkles or hitting the road for an adventure.
