Oh so happy, angry, sad, sociable, selfish, empathetic, investigative, tired, talkative, resilient
Mixed race, mixed culture, multi-linguist, middle-aged mother and wife
Active listener, artist, entrepreneur, co-worker, leader, participant, teacher, student, cyclist
None of these numerable mindsets negates one another; instead they form a whole
Unique yet common
Confident yet scared
Booming with energy yet tired
Passionate yet disillusioned
Is Who I Am.
Where attitudes and skills are complementary
Where attitudes and skills are instrumental
From as far back as I remember, I have travelled around the world. I have lived, worked and studied on three different continents and met people of all ages, colours, nationalities, beliefs and abilities. These experiences were rich in learning and understanding opportunities of myself, of others, of the world. It has allowed me to be less discriminative and open to living the present moment. This jubilant jaunty journey made it possible for me to become a resourceful creative problem-solver. It has also been helping me reach a state of content and universal mindset.
First a play-leader, then an office manager, after that an outreach freelance artist and teacher, I am currently working as a teaching assistant and Yoga teacher in a London-based school. I also lead my own yoga classes locally.
Yoga has been providing me with a safe space to combine all of my facets and make me whole to live in peace with myself, my family, my co-workers, my partners, my community and eventually the whole world.
I have been inspired to inspire others.

My name is Elodie Ancel.
I have been working with children and young people for over 27 years now in France, Germany and the UK in various settings ranging from schools, summer camps, museums, theatres, royal palaces, libraries, housing associations, charities, festivals, GP surgery and dentist. (If you want to find out more about the projects I work on go to my LinkedIn page.)
I have done some outreach work, created immersive environments for children and their families, taught French, delivered arts and craft workshops, performed, lead speech and language booster group, taught and assisted in year 1 and 2.
All these experiences have been invaluable leading me inevitably towards Yoga and Mindfulness, which now trickle in everything I do and deliver.
I have just completed my 95-hour Yogabeez Children's Yoga Teacher Training Programme, MISP.begin course last April 2019 and will be completing my 300-hour Adult Yoga Teacher training programme in a French-based Ashram this August. I am also planning to continue my training with MISP to explore teaching children and young people mindfulness more in depth.
I am currently teaching in a South-East London primary school Yoga and Mindfulness to year 1 and 2 on a weekly basis and otherwise punctually across the school too.
Furthermore, I am running a weekly Saturday class in Croydon in partnership with Essence of Good Health Free Yoga for children aged 3-13 and their parent or carer.
Children and teens are so responsive that I am totally dedicated, committed and inspired to continue delivering more classes to give a platform for children to express themselves freely in a safe environment, gain confidence self esteem, respect in themselves and therefore respect of others making our world a better place.
