When Elena Cheung first took a yoga class, she didn’t like it. It was harder than she had anticipated, and she wasn’t flexible. She started to love it when she leaned into the discomfort and realized the benefits of doing something that was both physically and mentally challenging.
Fast forward to today, and Elena is a movement specialist and yoga teacher who has worked with a wide range of people to help them incorporate mindful movement into their lives. She’s a firm believer that incorporating movement like yoga can help you towards your other athletic goals, no matter the sport.
In this episode of Wild Ideas Worth Living, she discusses her path to yoga, breath work and exercises for athletes, and how to incorporate a yoga practice into your own life. If you’re looking for inspiration, check out Elena’s new YouTube series, Deeply Moving. This series focuses on incorporating yoga and movement into your life, no matter where you are at in your journey.
