Art Of Attention: Yoga Matters with Elena Brower

She may have taught yoga to thousands beneath the Eiffel Tower and on the Great Lawn at Central Park, but what makes writer and yogi Elena Brower spectacular is the way she’s helping others on a micro level as well as macro, honing into the ways we heal through awareness and express gratitude on a relevant, personal level. We know it’s been said about many – but Elena is truly the people’s teacher.

Elena’s groundbreaking bestseller, Art Of Attention, is a must for anyone looking to dive deep into the practice, contemplation, and creativity that lives in each and every yoga practice, whether you’re a student, teacher, newbie, or seasoned veteran. And to take it to the next level, Elena’s Art of Attention Meditation Course is a much-loved way to either boost or begin your practice of shifting attention inward. In true Elena Brower fashion, it’s creative, accessible, and speaks right to your heart.

Usually you have to be side-by-side with someone to feel their effect on you – all you need to do is read Elena’s words to be calmed by her presence. If you’re in the Stratton area next week, be sure to catch her at Wanderlust – then at both Wanderlust Aspen and the Love Your Life retreat in July. Otherwise, read on to get to know Elena, and prepare yourself to be inspired and motivated by her point of view (the biggest lesson she’s learned through yoga gave us our own mini-breakthrough). Then go sign up for Art Of Attention course with a special promo Elena’s created just for TCM readers…
