Yelena Foster, RYT-500, ERYT-200 and certified Baptiste teacher, registered Nationally with Yoga Alliance, Director of 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training School since 2013, Massage Therapist WI-11492146
Energetic, dynamic and empowering, Yelena brings enthusiasm and passion for yoga and meditation to each class. Her classes are unique by level of variety and exuberance. She has been teaching since 2005 and meditation since 1988.
Both Yoga and Meditation have fit perfectly into her life and have given her stamina, confidence and, according to Yelena, made her an entirely new person. She opened her own studio in 2007, sharing with people how yoga changed her life.
Yoga opened new possibilities for herself and has given her the opportunity to express a greater purpose than she would have. Yoga lead her to meet with awesome Yoga people, Debbie Williamson, Baron Baptiste, Paige Elenson, Jonathan Reynolds, and Bryan Kest.
Yelena’s philosophy of life: ” Yoga is a gift and always available as a person needs. I am grateful for the gift of yoga and honored to share with you!”
Reading, dance, travel and meeting new people are a great addition to her fun life.
Elise Gothard, RYT-200
Elise began practicing yoga as a way to distress, though she soon began to feel the many other mental and physical benefits a regular yoga practice can bring. She completed her yoga teacher training with Yelena Foster in the fall of 2017 at Lotus Yoga and has since used her passion to help others enjoy yoga, too! The integration of physical asana, breath-work, and mental awareness makes yoga an important part of her self-care routine. Elise believes yoga is for everyone and enjoys using props and modifications to assist yogis of all abilities. Her classes sync breath and intentional movement, bringing peace and unity to mind, body, and soul. Outside of the studio, you’ll likely find Elise out enjoying nature, in the kitchen, or curled up with a book! She was certified as a Reiki practitioner.

Cassie Hynek, RYT-200
Three years ago, my best friend asked me to go to a yoga class with her, I thought why not? My muscles could use some toning. Little did I know that attending that one class was going to change my life completely. Initially, I pursued yoga as a physical practice, but as I continued on my own journey, I realized that practicing yoga was so much more than that. It was Yelena’s subtle message and quiet whisperings of the spiritual side of yoga, the philosophy, Sanskrit, meditations, and mantras that called me back time and time again.
Coming to yoga felt like home. My heart found a new passion. Nothing compares to the feelings you get after finishing an empowering yoga class. I was drawn to yoga by the sense of connection and gratitude that I felt in my own practice.
I am an English as a Second Language teacher at Sabish Middle School, here in Fond du Lac. I love learning about different people, cultures and languages. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, reading, baking, and spending time outdoors!
In the spring of 2018, I completed my 200 hour teacher training. I love to teach a fun class that is challenging and allows you to push yourself. My classes are accessible to everyone and focus on exploration rather than destination. I teach from my heart and am so grateful to all the students
who come to share their beautiful souls.
