When I am in a state of yoga I am able to feel the interconnectedness of mind, body, spirit. I am able to realize I am not the voice in the head and I have a choice to listen to it or not. Through the movement of my body in different asana, or the chanting of a mantra, in the moments of silence in front of my altar, or simply mindfully observing the flow of my breath, I am aware of being linked to something bigger than myself. These are the times when I reconnect to the embodiment of who I truly am: spirit in human form. I carry this awareness wherever I go, as a tool to appreciate life in its fullness.


Elena is fluent in Italian, French, English, Spanish, and is currently learning Hindi


  • “I feel very grateful and blessed to haven taken many yoga classes with Elena in Sarasota Florida. She brings joy and devotion to a very meditational yoga practice. A yoga class with Elena has always left me more connected, centred and peaceful in mind, body and spirit. It you are fortunate enough to have the opportunity to take a class with Elena, then I highly encourage you to do so.”

  • “It took me a long time to figure out I needed to speak to someone. I was at a point in my life, when I knew I was supposed to do something, I just didn’t know what or how. After speaking with Elena (my wife told me about her) I felt like a new man! My ideas became clear and I realized I was wasting my time focusing on meaningless matters. Don’t hesitate to contact Elena, she will help you make sense of your life.”

She has a gift of taking one’s spiritual life to the next level and inspires her students live a more joyful and free existence. Through her intuitive readings, spiritual teachings, and energetic yoga classes she brings her students into perfect harmony. A journey with her is one you will never forget.”

    – Margaret, USA

  • “Elena has the ability to transform her studio into a space that is calm and guides you through a practice that helps you become centered. Whether it is a restorative class or Hatha yoga, you will feel more relaxed, stronger and quiet from the drama of everyday life. I strongly recommend you experience a retreat with Elena. It will be a place of inner peace and harmony that you will never forget.”

  • “I was fortunate to have shared many classes and sessions with Elena in Florida. It was always a warm, welcoming atmosphere with just the right assortment of candles, incense and soothing music. Her voice and energy have a beautiful calming effect as she guides her students through class/mediation. She is all around a wonderful person and genuinely cares. We all miss her here, but I'm very glad she is furthering her purpose in Rishikesh. If you have the opportunity to attend any of her classes, retreats, etc, I strongly enourage you to do so. I cannot wait to come visit, hopefully next year! :)

  • “Leaving Elena's classes, I always come out feeling better than when I walked in. I feel like a new person. She sets up the room like a little temple, with candles and her little altar. The music in the background is in tune with the mood of the class. Her explanations are easy to follow, informative, and she gives us the opportunity to practice at our own pace. I have yet to find a teacher with so much devotion, who truly walks the path as a yogini. Thank you Elena for paving the path for my inner growth.”

    - Matt, USA

  • “I have taken many beautiful classes with Elena when she was teaching in Florida where I live. Elena brings a spirit into the yoga studio that is calming, and also energizing...she lives her yoga on and off the mat with a grace and humor that makes it accessible for so many people, but also deepens one's practice. To be able to enter into her space on a retreat in India, would be wonderful! I highly recommend Elena for her kindness, compassion and profound knowledge of the ancient practice of yoga. Love her.”

    – Sigrid

  • “Elena was the first person to introduce me to the other 7 limbs of Yoga not just the asana. Her energy and her spirit were true and authentic. Her classes always vibrate at a higher frenquency! She helped me fall in love with meditation and setting intentions. She’s a life changer! Go with her.”

    - Cara

  • “Elena embodies everything Yogic that an instructor should be --- she's Zen and focused on the moment and elevates her classes in the same way. You get a class that's just right for every practice from intermediate to advanced and Elena leaves you feeling centered and grounded. I miss her spirit here in Florida!”
