Elena Bortolazzi, ISEF graduated, after a twenty-year experience in the fitness world, approaches the world of yoga with the teacher Roberto Bocchi, with whom she starts her Power Yoga formation, obtaining the teaching certification for the “Roberto Bocchi method”. Elena also undertakes the study of the Ashtanga Yoga, that she will then deepen with continuous training courses, especially with Day Christensen. Day passes down her passion for transitions, jumps and handstands, all elements that Elena combines with the study of the calisthenic training.

From this moment on, yoga and movement become part of her life, on an incessant research of balance between mind and body. That is how Yoga & Movimento comes alive; a school to share everything Elena believes in the most. The training of the body with yoga postures in order to eliminate our overwhelming daily stress through the movement.

Power Yoga and Ashtanga Yoga teacher, Elena creates a new synergy to make the body even more functional with natural, dynamic and progressive movements. Elena biomechanically analyses and explores every articulation: Biomechanics Yoga.
