Elena Besedin

Elena Besedin has completed her 200 Hour Teacher Training with Baron Baptiste and 500 hours RYT with Live Love Teach. She discovered yoga in 2005. At that time she was enjoying a demanding and fulfilling professional career as an environmental scientist and did not plan to become a yoga teacher even in her wildest dreams. Yoga came into her life like a true miracle – completely unexpected. Teaching was a natural step in Elena’s practice. Sharing her passion for yoga with the students enriched her own yoga practice and life – her love for yoga started growing and multiplying. She teaches her classes with rigor, precision and a touch of humor. More recently, she also started blending her passion for yoga and research. She was a principal investigator and co-author of several yoga studies conducted by the University of Connecticut, including “Relations between Yoga Dose and Emotional Well-Being.” She also contributes to Live Love Teach teacher’s trainings and workshops at various studios nationwide.
