Eli Walker was born and raised in rural Wisconsin before moving to Manhattan to attend New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts for Acting. As an actor, she trained at the Lee Strasberg Institute, Experimental Theatre Wing, and Stonestreet Studios, as well as the Upright Citizens’ Brigade and the Magnet. Under the direction of Tony award-winning director Elizabeth Swados during college (Political Snorts, 2009 and Revolting Rhymes, 2011), Eli discovered a knack for satirical writing and interactive performance art. Other writing credits include several one-woman shows she performed in New York, including “STEPS” at Wings Theater, “COUNTING” at ETW, and “The Quarter-Life Crisis Monologues” at the PIT. A professional yoga teacher for many years with training from Atmananda Yoga and Katonah Yoga in Manhattan and the Himalayan Iyengar Institute in India, Eli developed her niche by integrating the art of storytelling with yoga to help people live more empowered lives with a greater sense of conscious authorship. An experimental artist at heart, Eli thrives on bringing yoga to non-yogis in unconventional settings. She does so currently through her company Divine Your Story, and, most recently, Drunk Yoga… which is why you're here... reading this bio.
