ELENA'S JOURNEY

Everybody started somewhere. In the My Journey posts we ask an accomplished athlete / star / thought leader how they got where they are now. We hope their stories will inspire and motivate you.

In this eleventh My Journey post, we had a chat with Elena who is a Yoga practitioner. We hope you enjoy Elena's journey.

How did you get introduced to yoga?

I started doing yoga on November 2013 because a knee injury stopped me from running. It was a very intense period in my life, my work schedule was hectic, I had no time for myself, I was really stressed and I needed some kind of relaxing routine when I got home.

When did yoga get “serious”?

I started yoga, I bought Kino MacGregor's book and followed her youtube channel, this is where it all began.

Can you share your biggest challenges?

The biggest challenge for me was to not become a slave of my daily commute to work that didn't leave me any time for myself.

How do you handle pressure?

I have been practicing mainly by myself for three years now and I have seen my body flexibility change month after month.

How did your passion influence your life in other ways?

If you have a daily yoga practice, even if a short one, you will see the difference breath after breath: your body will slowly open and your mind will become lighter and calm.

What does your daily routine look like?

I started waking up 30 minutes earlier (6:00 am) to practice and have some time for myself. If I wanted to sleep, I would switch and practice after work, at 8 pm, even if only for 10-20 minutes, focusing on my breath.

What keep you motivated

I can honestly say that yoga has made my life different, not only my body opened and healed but my mind became steady and I learned how to breathe when things in life don't go exactly as planned.

Anything you’d like to share?

This was one of the best decisions I took for myself in my whole life, at 40 I finally feel a better version of my previous self.
