Featured Presenter: Elena Brower
Founder and co-owner of Virayoga, Elena's 14 years of teaching yields a distinct blend of yoga and healing traditions. Her voice reveals the day-to-day relevance of the practices, via artful alignment and attention cues intended to situate us consistently in our hearts. From the Museum of Modern Art to the Great Lawn at Central Park in New York; from the playa at Burning Man to the Eiffel Tower in Paris, she is honoured to offer larger-scale experiences of yoga, but Elena's true service is in shifting awareness within the smallest interactions; one family, one household at a time. She's been featured in the New York Times, Yoga Journal, Natural Living, the Element Yoga for Beginners DVD series, FitYoga, ABC News, NBC News and is the voice for Deepak Chopra's groundbreaking video game LEELA, which blends meditation with game play. Elena is also the Executive Producer of ON MEDITATION, a series of edifying, inspirational shorts on the reality of meditation, to be released in 2012. Elena's recently developed an essential oil blend called GIVE that proudly benefits her favorite global cause, Women For Women International. Current classes can be enjoyed on Yogaglo.com.
From Elena: "There are a few great reasons to live on the East Coast: the first day of Spring is one of them. Enjoy this gorgeous time of the year - it's magical.
I feel so lucky to have Wanderlust VT to look forward to this summer. Watch for our Vira/Kula 10 year celebration class and special accommodations for our studio students!"
