About Elika

I fell in love with the Spanish language growing up around my Panamanian family and when I was in college, studying in Guadajara, MX I knew I did not want to miss a day immersed in the language. And that I did for many years as I went to work in Latin American Sales, then on to teach Intro to Spanish classes. And although I love teaching the language along with yoga to groups, the most gratifying and beneficial relationship for learning comes from working one-on-one. When I tutored ESL students, I got to build a relationship and see students go from the look of frustration to one of faith. I use educational material to learn verb usage and then incorporate conversational practice to develop vocabulary usage from lessons.

I look forward to bringing my passion for teaching + 25 years of Spanish studies + 11 years of Yoga Instruction, to patiently and efficiently lead you to success and empowerment in your studies.

Yoga

I am a 200 hr Registered Yoga Teacher with 11 years of Yoga Instruction in studios, gyms and in-home, one-one one for pregnant women, corporate executives and chair yoga clients. I lead Teacher Trainings, which train yoga teachers and sometimes the trainees need more guidance so I will provide mentoring to guide them individually. I know how hard it can feel to learn something and feel like you're not getting it, so being patient with the client is a strength of mine gained from working with kids teaching yoga, attending births, and from working with newborn babies as a Birth Doula.

Spanish with my daughter...

Elika is scheduled with 4 lessons weekly with my daughter in Spanish. They have had two lessons so far and it has gone brilliantly. I am so excited for Elika to be an ongoing inspiration in Apple's education.
