This summer, the Radiant Heart Yoga School will take a class trip to Elena’s studio in New York City for an immersion into core of Elena’s practice and learn why she practices and teaches the “Art of Attention”. Elena is a mama, teacher, speaker, author. 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 honored 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.
The Art of Attention is ranked number one for book design in the States, Germany and France, and has now been translated into five languages. The accompanying Art of Attention Yoga Healing Cards, now in their second printing, are being used in more than fifty countries for divination and daily inspiration. As the Executive Producer of On Meditation, Elena is curating a film project about the relevance and benefits of meditation, first debuted on American Public Television, now being screened on several airlines during international flights. Elena contributes to Positively Positive, Sonima, Huffington Post, MindBodyGreen, Well and Good, and Mantra Magazine. She’s been featured in the New York Times, Yoga Journal, Element Yoga for Beginners DVDs, ABC, CBS News, NBC News and on Yogaglo.
