What would it be like to stop judging yourself and step into your potential?
Hi! I’m Elena Sonnino! I’m a Martha Beck certified life coach and yoga teacher. But honestly, those are just labels. I guide women who crave a life beyond the boundaries of their perceptions.
Why would you want to live beyond your perceptions? Well, maybe you don’t. But my special gift or purpose in life is to be the mirror that helps you reveal what is already there. I help women who need a gentle nudge (or the occasional nurturing shove) to get out of their own way because on some level already know that they’ve got everything they need inside of them, but don’t know how to trust themselves to unlock their potential and live in the now.
Oh and… I’m a cancer survivor, a former public school teacher turned travel writer and mom. It took me a long time, but I finally realized that my body always has everything I need – if I would just slow down long enough to notice. De-cluttering physically and emotionally, self-compassion, acceptance, and gratitude are the practices that I come back to each and every day – because by the way, this work is not easy and takes daily effort and intention.
Go beyond the boundaries of your perception and uncover that which is hidden inside YOU.
Break free of old patterns and develop a new understanding of who you are.
"Elena, I seriously can't thank you enough for such an amazing few months. You've been so supportive and engaging and have REALLY helped me to avoid falling into the funk of negative story telling. I can't wait to continue these practices you taught me as well as keep a journey of gratitude. Talking with you today, as always, has me so excited for the future."Shannon Dell
I have been working with Elena over the past few months and have found her guidance supportive and on target. She has walked beside me through some challenging unresolved emotional breakthroughs and helped me see the bigger (clearer) picture. Elena is very responsive to any questions, concerns, and reflections of mine during the week reminding me of the strategies we have put in place and of new ones, as necessary. I have seen a gentle shift in my overall well-being and emotional stability since working with her and look forward to continuing my journey with Elena as my coach and cheerleader.Steph P.
"After just a couple months of working with Elena, I am seeing significant changes in the way I recognize and approach my thoughts, feelings, and internal struggles. I especially appreciate her skill in gently pushing me to fully work through an issue. Her "turtle steps" have helped me make break down problems and goals into manageable, actionable pieces, and she has given me so many tools to work with!"Shannon Entin
"Working with Elena really allowed me to gain a new perspective on things that would trigger stress or anxiety. I love that her tools are simple to use, quick and extremely effective. Elena is extremely supportive and a top notch listener. Thank you so much for my sessions. I'm so looking forward to having you guide our SwellWomen guests at upcoming retreats."Lulu Agan
