Elena grew up in Russia is a certificated sports aerobic trainer, with a degree in physical education & sport. She joyfully discovered yoga when she moved to Singapore in 2008, where she practiced with Dr. Yogi Ram, an Indian yoga master. Yoga became part of her life, and her practice had helped her grow stronger, more flexible, and fearless, both on and off the mat. Yoga inspires Elena to live each moment mindfully. She completed her 200 hour Integrative Yoga Therapy teacher training with the Soma Yoga Institute. Elena will always be a student of the practice and deeply grateful for the loving wisdom her teachers have shared with her. Elena seeks to help others thrive in life by nurturing body, mind, and soul with yoga, and her hope is that you come off the mat feeling refreshed, nourished, and balanced.
