Elena’s love of yoga began in her native Russia. After moving to the U.S. in 2001, Elena was exposed to new yoga styles that she gradually incorporated into her practice. With the birth of her first child, Elena’s passion for yoga deepened through a personal discovery of the restorative, healing powers of a daily yoga practice. Teaching yoga is yet one more dimension of her daily practice, allowing Elena to share yoga’s life-changing potential with students. In her classes, she offers a diverse range of styles and strives to provide a full workout for the entire body, leaving students refreshed and invigorated. Elena will support your personal journey on the mat, so that you can lead an increasingly self-empowered, passionate, and breath-filled life off the mat.
