Heading 1

   Hi, my name is Elena Amani.

I was born in Russia and have also lived in Belgium and Croatia. I loved movement from a young age, and trained as a gymnast from age 8.


   At age 28, I sustained several serious injuries, especially in my neck, from a rollercoaster accident. This resulted in hypoxia (lack of oxygen in the brain) and regular headaches.

    For the last 12 years I have been researching how to improve and strengthen my body especially the hips, knees and lower back. As a result, I discovered isokinetic muscle activation exercises, energy techniques and yoga. These natural therapies provided me with pain relief and improved my health by:

  • eliminating Hip bursitis (inflammation)

  • releasing jaw pain – especially through Yoga for face

  • aligning my pelvis and shoulders

  • stabilising blood levels of thyroid hormone

  • controlling my Crohn's disease 

  • reducing hypoxia and headaches

I am excited to share my knowledge with you. I look forward to meeting you at Yoga for Posture’s classes!
