The Yoga Teacher: Elena Brower + Kenneth Perrine
After her short film portrait, Elena Brower, one of the most respected Hatha yoga teachers in the United States, talks about how meditation, once a struggle, has become crucial to her well-being and shares how meditation can be incorporated into one's life anywhere and everywhere, even in the hustle and bustle of New York City. She will share her experience with neuropsychologist Kenneth Perrine.
