YOGA INSTRUCTOR

About the Instructor

Elaine has been teaching group exercise in the health and fitness industry since her early 20s.  As a long-time resident of Dubai and mother of two grown sons, she ended a 15-year career in Real Estate/Facilities management in 2016, to teach full time. 

A long time student of Iyengar yoga, Elaine completed her first 200 hour yoga flow certification in 2010 and soon after created the largest wellness festival in the region, Yogafest Dubai, which brings thousands of people together to support great causes in the beautiful grounds of Dubai Internet city. 

Further studies in yoga therapy, yin yoga, pranayama, prenatal yoga and Mindful based stress reduction (MBSR) led to teaching more private clients with special needs along with group classes.  A passion for plant powered eating led her to create a Vegan Yoginis group on Facebook which combines yoga with plant-based cooking in small groups.  

In 2020 Elaine qualified as a Pilates Mat Teacher with Body Hack and specializes in Neuro Pilates.  She continues to work as Charity Director for Gulf4Good and offers workshops and retreats in stunning locations around the world.
