TADASANA TEACHER PROFILE: ELENA BROWER

One of most widely respected teachers today, New York City’s Elena Brower has brought yoga to brand new territories, including Central Park’s Great Lawn and numerous museum and art gallery settings. The co-owner of Soho’s Virayoga and founder of Art of Attention, Elena talks with us about a few of her favorite things: sunshine, sharing and pre-sleep meditation. 

What do you most hope to share with your students at Tadasana?
Planning to share ways of relating - to our practice, to each other, and to our families - that cultivate real recognition and trust.

What is your favorite thing about Santa Monica?
The sunshine. Coming from NYC, I love my Santa Monica sunshine. 

What is your favorite mountain to climb?
My favorite mountain to climb is consistently meditating every single night prior to sleeping. In bound lotus. 

Tadasana Teacher Profile: Amy Ippoliti

We are psyched about Tadasana teacher Amy Ippoliti's classes at the festival: 'Be the Light,' which will feature live music by Steve Gold, ‘The Secret of Happiness,’ and ‘Release,’ co-taught with Elena Brower and featuring live music by Hassan Hakmoun, Karsh Kale and Vishal Vaid. The Anusara-trained, Colorado-based teacher took a few moments from her busy schedule to answer questions for us. 

What do you most hope to share with your students at Tadasana?
Time is finite. I’m pretty pumped on sharing how we can approach our practice as a means to choosing happiness and deep fulfillment so we have no regrets when we die. While we are alive for this precious period on the planet, how do we want to be of service to the world? And let’s have major fun while doing it! I’m also psyched we will be together on Earth Day and can scheme as a yoga community about ways to live on earth more sustainably.

What is your favorite thing about Santa Monica?
I’m living in Colorado right now, so by far, the ocean is my fave - and of course the occasional dolphins sightings!

What is your favorite mountain to climb?
I’m a big fan of climbing Mt. Everest on a yearly basis. (Kidding!) Actually I hike a lot in Colorado, but rarely climb the mountains. I should do one of the fourteeners here. Add that to the bucket list.

Tasana teacher Elena Brower received this generous review by YJ blogger Kelle Walsh at the SF Yoga Journal Conference:

I’ve heard so much about Elena Brower over the past year that as soon as I saw she was holding a daylong workshop at the Yoga Journal San Francisco Conference, I knew that’s where I wanted to spend my day. I wasn’t disappointed. Brower is as charismatic and inspiring as I’d heard. A huge part of her appeal is her brute honesty and, well, her realness, curse words and all.
