Eldoa with Stacey Stone. What is the difference between Yoga & ELDOA? The key distinction between yoga and ELDOA is that yoga encourages a more fluid and holistic mindset, whereas ELDOA is more analytical. The ELDOA method offers a more analytical presentation of the anatomy being influenced in many common yoga poses. The classes are not yoga and are not in any way conducted like yoga classes. However, you may recognize significant overlap in the postures being used to influence specific parts of the body. During ELDOA classes, you will learn to analyse your own posture, balance, and the amount of tension throughout your body.
