Elena Brower, mama, founder and co-owner of Virayoga, and coauthor of Art of Attention (which has been translated into six languages), has been teaching yoga since 1997 and has studied with master yoga teachers for more than 10 years. Through her teaching, influenced by several traditions including alignment-based hatha yoga and Kundalini Yoga, she offers yoga as a way to approach the world with realistic reverence and gratitude. Her classes are a masterful, candid blend of artful alignment and attention cues for body, mind, and heart.
From the Museum of Modern Art to the Great Lawn at Central Park, from the playa at Burning Man to the Eiffel Tower, Brower has offered larger-scale experiences of yoga, but her true service is in shifting awareness within the smallest interactions—one family, one household at a time. As a coach with the Handel Group, she coaches individuals and teaches courses. She has also been featured in the New York Times, Yoga Journal, Element Yoga for Beginners DVDs, and on ABC News and NBC News. Dozens of yoga practices with Elena Brower can be found on Yogaglo.
As the executive producer of On Meditation, Brower is curating a project about the relevance of meditation and its benefits.
