Elena is a Zürich-based author, composer and teacher of yoga and meditation. She has been creating music as long as she remembers herself, and yoga became a part of her life very early. By now, she has been teaching yoga and performing for over 13 years. She has led over 75 yoga retreats on 5 continents, created a meditation channel, a yoga DVD and 2 music albums, and has been featured in 18 publications including Yoga Journal, OM Yoga Magazine UK, Well-Being Australia and many others.
Over 20 years of practicing and studying yoga, Elena has developed a passion and expertise in the fields of psychology, which is her academic background, as well as Ayurveda - the ancient science of health and wellbeing. Besides that, Elena has extensive knowledge and experience in Yoga Nidra, and is currently leading teachers’ trainings in this discipline. In her teachings and retreat programmes, she combines biomechanics- and alignment-based asana practice with resistance work and myofascial release, infusing the practice with pranayama and meditative awareness techniques.
Musically, Elena has gone through singer-songwriter stage which is what the first EP has been dedicated to, and is currently focusing on instrumental music cinematically combining piano and layers of strings.
Elena’s mission is to touch hearts of everyone who she works with, helping students and listeners embrace and celebrate who they are and create a solid foundation for growth and well-being.
