Elena Amani – Vinyasa Hatha Teacher

Yoga Teacher - Elena Amani


Elena Amani’s perspective in life and interests

Elena was born in Russia into a creative family. This influenced her choice of profession and she got a Diploma in Applied Fashion Design. She has been in Australia for six years. Like many young mothers suffered from hip, neck and lower back injuries which was the result of poor posture. I also had concerns with her thyroid gland. She searched far and wide for answers to become physically and mentally stronger and healthier again. It wasn’t until she found Yoga that she has been able to dramatically improve her body, mind and spirit.

Training and major influences

She studied (Hatha yoga) in Australia and abroad since 2006 and holds a certificate in Yoga and Meditation from the Insync Institute in Canberra. Along with certificates in Applied Anatomy & Physiology of Yoga from Yoga Synergy school in Sydney and Yoga for kids.

She has also completed a course in Reflexology from the Australian Institute of Applied Sciences. She finds that this complements the health and well-being of her students.

Style of teaching

Elena teaches Vinyasa Hatha yoga style from general to intermediate level. She focuses on the balance between strength, flexibility and relaxation. Working with the breath is a priority.

Most recent inspiring experience

My muscles were not strong enough because I had concerns with my thyroid gland. Back when I started, like most yoga students I was holding the postures for five slowly deep breaths and I over-stretched my weak muscles, hamstrings and I injured my knee. Two years of pain inspired me to study more and create the yoga class for people like me. Now I can hold a pose without any discomfort and pain. The safest way to apply the principle of strength with flexibility is to commence a stretching posture with the muscles activated around the joint.

What people are saying about Canberra Yoga Space…

"I have attended several other yoga schools but always felt uncomfortable due to being a beginner and the other yogis able to do more than me. When I found Canberra yoga space I was going through a very difficult time in my life, and beginners yoga course supported me and my emotional state at this time. I love my yoga practice and have signed up again for the beginners course. I really look forward to continuing yoga practice and personal growth. Thank you Monica and the great team at Canberra yoga space." - Rebecca – October 2016
