Hello! I’m Ellen Olson-Brown, a New England-based illustrator, writer, yogi, and dessert connoisseur.

I started drawing these sweet little beans to illustrate curriculum materials for my friendly yoga kids’ classes, and eventually incorporated ideas from the hot 26/2 and yin yoga classes that I teach.

You can enjoy Friendly Yoga Beans on Instagram, by subscribing to my monthly newsletter (keep scrolling!), or by purchasing products at my shop.

When I’m not drawing or practicing/teaching yoga, I love to read, bake, write, nap, grow zinnias, walk in the woods, and explore the world with my husband, sons, and dog.
