Elena's superpower is to create and hold space for you to get out of your to see and BE yourself with curiosity, vulnerability, self-love, and wholeness to live an empowered life.
Elena didn't always like yoga. In fact, for many years – she didn't. She didn't think she looked like a yogi, and couldn't find stillness in savasana. But in 2014, Elena spent one week at a hiking retreat that incorporated sunrise yoga into the daily routine. Rather than resisting, she began to crave time on her mat to soothe her body and mind after spending hours on the trails. She eventually realized that yoga was more than a workout. It was a practice that taught her to embrace acceptance of the present moment. Elena loves to lead slow, mindful practices to get grounded, tune into intuition, and notice progress instead of judgment.
Elena completed her 200-hour teacher training with CorePower Yoga in 2016 and her 30-hour yin certification with Maryam Ovissi and Jafar Alexander at Beloved Yoga in 2017. When not practicing yoga or working with life coaching clients, Elena can be found in nature or planning adventures big and small with her husband, teenage daughter, and labradoodle.
