Meet Ellen Watkins, the visionary owner of Ellevate Skin + Brows, where beauty and holistic healing converge. Ellen is not just a licensed esthetician; she is a Reiki Master, yoga instructor, and a unique standout in the Kansas City esthetics field. Her journey began in 2020, and since then, she has become a beacon of holistic healing in the community. Ellen opened Ellevate Skin + Brows in late 2021, envisioning a space that goes beyond traditional skincare.

This year, Ellen expanded her repertoire by becoming a certified yoga instructor, further facilitating healing through gentle movement. Ellen's passion for serving her community extends beyond Ellevate. Raised in Lee's Summit, she takes pride in offering unique healing experiences to her hometown. Her commitment to the well-being of others also extends to the diabetic community, where she actively volunteers, drawing on her own experience as a type one diabetic for over 16 years. Outside the spa, Ellen shares her life with her husband, Dustin, and their faithful dog, Katie. Ellen Watkins is more than a spa owner; she is a trailblazer in the realm of holistic beauty and well-being.

Ellevate Yoga

Candlelit Restorative Yoga with Reiki

You are formally invited 💌 to join me on Sundays at 7pm at the Megan’s Yoga Tribe-Lakewood Studio for Candlelit Restorative Yoga! I blend cozy restorative postures held for 7-15 minutes (think deep rest!) with reiki energy healing, sound savasana, guided meditation and aromatherapy. Reiki is an eastern energy healing technique that involves the practitioner (me) using their hands to facilitate gentle chakra clearing. It is optional in this class, but you can expect a lovely back, shoulder, or scalp massage infused with reiki as you sink deeper into your postures! It’s pretty much pure bliss. This immersive class is suitable for any experience level, and is not an athletic practice. You really get to lay down, enjoy a deep stretch, and rest while you receive! I suggest booking ahead to commit to your own self care and wellbeing 🌿 reach out if you have any questions and I’ll see you on the mat soon!
