Elina is a certified yoga & mindfulness facilitator, Anti-gravity instructor and ambassador for Yoga Gives Back. Before yoga found her, she had a 15 year corporate marketing career where she lived and worked in London, Hong Kong and Singapore.
Elina first moved to Puerto Rico in 2015 to teach yoga on the beach, and since arrived and taught yoga full time in Wellington, New Zealand in August 2016 before moving to the beautiful Queenstown on the South Island. Elina hopes to bring the joys and benefits of yoga and mindfulness through sharing the practice within the local & international community.
Yoga and mindfulness has had a tremendous positive impact on her life since 2012 – body, mind and spirit – and Elina wants to share this with the world, one mindful step at a time. And so, guiding and facilitating mindfulness and yoga came naturally to her.
Her teaching style is firmly based on the mindfulness practice and is slow, mindful, inclusive and supportive, allowing for options and modifications to suit all levels and abilities. She believes that a good teacher is a forever student and has trained with renowned yoga teachers including Donna Farhi, Tiffany Cruickshank and Scott Lyon.
