“We forget that deeper than any perceived failure is this radiance…”
Elena Brower is one of the leading yoga teachers in the world having risen to acclaim on the New York yoga scene. She is also a mum and artist who is devoted to helping people live more meaningful and loving lives. Elena is a graduate from Cornell University and has studied with several master yoga teachers for over a decade. She is the author of “Art of Attention: A Yoga Practice Workbook for Movement as Meditation” that guides us into an exploration of presence, elegance and deeper life purpose.
But for a long time, Elena wasn’t proud of who she was. In fact she felt a discrepancy between her public and private life that led her to carry around the weight of shame. It was her journey to sobriety by telling the truth that allowed her life to more fully open up.
During this conversation we talk about:
- The recent passing of her beloved mum
- The power of truth telling for living a life of freedom
- The impact shame can have on creativity, immunity and parenting
- How to “re-pattern” shame with physical touch, forgiveness and saying sorry
- Elena’s personal rituals, plus some beautiful practices she shares with her son Jonah
