Mama, teacher, speaker, coach, and co-author of Art of Attention, Elena has taught yoga 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. Influenced by several traditions including Katonah Yoga, ParaYoga and Kundalini Yoga, 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 playa at Burning Man 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. She’s been featured in the New York Times, Yoga Journal, Element Yoga for Beginners DVDs, ABC News, CBS News and NBC News.
Her first book, Art of Attention, has been ranked number one for design on Amazon, and has now been translated into five languages. Her Audio Meditation Course is globally renowned as a way to boost or begin a consistent practice, and the film on which she’s an Executive Producer, On Meditation, is being featured on several international airlines and national public television. Elena has contributed to Yoga Journal, Yoga International, Huffington Post, MindBodyGreen, Well and Good NYC, Positively Positive, and more. Practice with Elena on YogaGlo.com.
