Alpine Academy is excited to offer a yoga class for students and staff members, taught by a certified yoga instructor. Recognizing the role yoga plays in improving physical and emotional health, bringing balance to mind and soul, and the potential power it has to increase positive thinking, as just a few of its attributes, Alpine Academy has been mindful in implementing this additional programming in a way that will produce genuine outcomes.
Alpine Academy recently received a very generous donation from an alumni family designated to improve awareness and provide authentic opportunities to integrate wellness and healthy living into our lives. Their donation is providing yoga equipment for the students, including mats, straps, blocks, and more. The willingness of families to help other students on campus, even after their own daughters have left, really speaks to the overall feeling of a greater "Alpine Family."
Elin Isakson is one of Alpine Academy’s fabulous family teachers. She and her husband, Hans, have been an incredible force for good in the lives of the students in their home. They have always enjoyed an active lifestyle and Elin wanted to be able to share some of her passion with the students at Alpine. Elin and Hans incorporate “farm to table” and conscious eating lifestyle in their home and Elin’s certification as a yoga instructor is just one more way they are making a difference in the lives of the students and staff on campus.

Elin’s teaching will focus on a weekly theme of altruism and personal resiliency. Alpine is delighted to have yet another opportunity for students to develop their physical and emotional strength and well-being in a way that is impactful now and for their future.
