Mama, teacher, speaker, and co-author of Art of Attention, Elena has been teaching yoga and meditation since 1999. After graduating from Cornell University in 1992 with a design degree, she worked as a textile and apparel designer for 6 years, and has been studying with master yoga teachers since 1997. Elena offers yoga and meditation as a way to approach our world with realistic reverence and gratitude. Her classes are a masterful, candid blend of artful alignment and attention cues for your body, mind and heart.
From the Museum of Modern Art to the Great Lawn at Central Park, from the Old Port of Montreal to the Eiffel Tower, Elena is honoured to offer larger-scale experiences of yoga and meditation, but her true service is in shifting awareness within the smallest interactions; one family, one household at a time. Elena’s two audio meditation courses, 4-week Art of Attention and 7-day Cultivating Spiritual Intelligence are beloved globally for creating consistent, accessible practice.
Currently Elena teaches weekly and monthly classes in New York City, as well as retreats and trainings worldwide. She is also the founder of Teach.Yoga, a global hub of content and inspiration created by the teachers, for the teachers.
