Testimonials

I had the pleasure of meeting Ellie in March of 2020.  It was during the most difficult time of my life.  I had just lost my job, the pandemic was spreading quickly and I was suffering from numerous health conditions that limited my ability to walk. Ellie immediately recognized that I was not emotionally in a great place and showed such empathy and compassion. We immediately bonded and became friends. Ellie offered to assist me with different practices of guided meditations and also observing and addressing my stressful issues from a different view.

 

As we started working together, each and every time that Ellie and I had a session I felt more relaxed, confident and was growing emotionally and mentally stronger. Ellie's unique and effective approach to healing was different than anything I had tried before. Now I am able to approach stressful situations and problems without feelings of self doubt or anxiety.  

 

I can unreservedly recommend Ellie and her practices to anyone that wishes to live a more fulfilling life.  I can honestly say that I am a stronger person, more confident and happy because of her amazing skills and dedication to helping others heal.

I have been an athlete and trained many athletes over the years.  Dealing with performance anxiety and stress related to sports is very common. Learning how to cope with these pressures can be very difficult and can lead many into deep depression. Looking for a way to cope in this pressure environment, I connected with a meditation coach, “Ellie Santra”. Because of the different techniques Ellie taught me, I now have a strong foundation to handle sports related pressures. She provided me with detailed notes and guided meditations that really changed my mindset. I now feel I can transition much easier in tough moments in my life and help the young athletes I continue to work with. I will continue to work with Ellie, and if you’re looking for ways to deal with life’s stresses, I highly recommend Ellie Santra.

Ellie is amazing!! She has an amazing voice and great energy. As the perfectionist I am, she lets me know it's okay to make mistakes and she also gives me great advice.

We signed our daughter up for vocal lessons with Ellie and have been so impressed with her abilities as a singer and the natural and effective way she conveys that ability to help her students.  It is no small feat to keep a 10-year old interested and Ellie is just a natural singer and natural teacher and she makes it fun.  She is professional, courteous, patient and a legitimate pro musician who has the ability and the desire to teach and help others.  I highly recommend her.

I thoroughly enjoy my lessons with Ellie. She’s fun and lighthearted during the lesson, yet always catches a flat note or a tight neck and offers a clear and often innovative solution to help me do better.  She incorporates some stretching and self massage to start before the warm up, and I find it both super relaxing and helpful. I also greatly appreciate her focus on singing an actual song - she recognizes the need to do scales and warm up, but also knows that we as students enjoy learning to master a song, and makes sure that is the focus of the lesson.  Ellie finds this beautiful balance of correcting me when I’m not performing at the best of my capabilities (which is exactly what I want), whilst remaining extremely encouraging and fun.  Highly recommend voice lessons with her!

Ellie is a phenomenally talented singing teacher!! Her passion shines through as she light heartedly meets your children exactly where they are at. My daughter not only strengthened her singing voice and abilities, but even wrote a song with Ellie. The bonus is that Ellie is teaching children the importance of deep breathing and mindfulness all while they are being empowered and having fun!

When I first signed up for singing lessons, I was definitely hesitant. Singing in the shower is easy but singing in front of a person is scary. From the moment that Ellie and I met she made me feel at ease and helped me take risks with my voice. Ellie has a way of both helping and instructing you without judgement. She is an incredibly talented singer with a great deal of patience and a keen ability in communicating with a person in order to maximize his or her talent. I would recommend Ellie to anyone that is looking to become a better singer. She’s awesome!
