Moms Who Inspire: Elena Brower

Ever Searched on YouTube for water birth videos?

Reading Time: 7 minutes

I have been a yoga teacher for five years and during that time I have come across many thought leaders in the yoga space, but very few have intrigued me as much as Elena Brower.

I first heard about Elena a few years back. A friend described her to me as “A yoga teacher who doesn’t hide from her internal demons.” She said that Elena humanizes herself in ways a lot of other yoga teachers don’t. She doesn’t try to illuminate righteousness, but instead she lives her life, sharing the highlights and the derailments along the way.

For the next few years I followed Elena’s journey in raising her nine-year old son Jonah, in co authoring the book The Art of Attention and in starting Teach.yoga, a site that I regularly go to for inspiration and knowledge. Most recently, I listened to an interview she did on a podcast which later inspired me to attend a workshop with The Handel Group, after Elena spoke about how their coaching transformed her life.

It’s fair to say that in more ways than one Elena has impacted my life without me ever meeting her. That is until a few weeks back when I had the pleasure of attending one of her classes after I interviewed her for this Moms Who Inspire post.

Elena did not disappoint.

She was kind and compassionate. She did not preach, but instead opened the class speaking about forgiveness. She offered this concept out to us, so that we could apply it to ourselves in the areas in which we truly needed it.

But perhaps what inspires me the most about Elena is the way she shows up as mom. I’ve heard her speak many times about raising Jonah, and I’m always humbled to see that she often touches on the challenges of motherhood and how they help her to grow as a person.

It’s Elena’s openness and passion for helping others that makes me so happy to share her thoughts on motherhood with all of you below.
