Meet Your Hosts


Elina Rangelova

Hi! I am Elina- Experienced Yoga Teacher, Certified Personal Trainer and Behavioral Change Specialist with a holistic approach to health and wellness. My yoga journey began in my early 20’s when I discovered I have an autoimmune condition. I was determined to stay as healthy as possible through natural remedies and the yoga practice has been an absolute godsend. Yoga helped me understand myself better and went well beyond just bringing physical benefits. I knew I needed to share the practice with others, so in 2016 I became a certified yoga teacher, as well as a kids yoga instructor. Ever since I have been teaching yoga classes for adults and kids all around the DC area. To deepen my knowledge about the human anatomy and physiology I took an extensive personal training course in 2020 and became a certified trainer through the American Council of Exercise. Later on in 2022 I specialized in Behavioral Change to better address the psychological boundaries that may prevent my students from properly taking care of themselves.

I aways welcome new students in my group and private practice and I love immensely helping them discover their potential to move freely and experience peace and tranquility!

Wellness with Nature

Resting on 150 acres, River Mountain is bordered by Sweet Root Creek, Warrior Ridge and Tussey Mountain. River Mountain's stunning spaces are designed for reflection, mindfulness, and good vibrations on your self-care journey. Creekside yoga platforms, a restored barn turned wellness space, and the calm of nature make this the ideal destination for peace and wellness.

Located just a few hours from D.C., Baltimore, and Pittsburgh, in the mountains of Pennsylvania, River Mountain is remote yet easy to access.


Warrior Path

Running parallel to River Mountain's eastern ridge is Warriors Path, the great Iroquois Indian highway from Six Nations country, New York, to the Catawba country in the Carolinas. The historic path along Sweet Root Creek was one of the longest and most heavily traveled land routes in eastern North America, connecting Indigenous peoples over hundreds of miles.

The Underground Railroad

Black Valley was an active route along the Underground Railroad. Local histories principally credit four, free black residents with leading the aid network in this area: Rev. John Fidler, Elias Rouse, Joseph Crawley, and James Graham. Just to the south of the River Mountain property are 13 unmarked graves of enslaved people who died traveling the route to freedom.
