Elana Kaufman

Elana Kaufman (she/her) is a Yoga facilitator, Usui Reiki II practitioner, space holder, and musician who is passionate about community, devotion, nervous system nourishment, healing, and self expression! She wears many hats in the world of work, including offering Yoga and therapeutic energy and body work, managing World Music artist “Ajeet,” and holding space for community healing and connection within virtual circle gatherings with Jess Cherry as “the Dream Tending Collective.” Elana is a grateful and passionate student of folk and indigenous herbal wisdom, Holistic Psychology, Lunar prayer, Hatha & Raja Yoga, and Marma Yoga & Therapy.
Elana’s joy is rooted in creating accessible, contemplative, and gentle practices that weave Yogic and Ayurvedic philosophy, Bhakti Yoga, and nature wisdom together in community spaces where folks of any background, body, and experience are cared for, welcomed and respected.
Elana is grateful to live, practice, learn, pray and teach on the ancestral lands of the Totoket and Quinnipiac peoples.
