May 17 2022 • 31 mins

Do you ever feel like the spark is missing in your life? Maybe that everyone else seems to be happier, more fulfilled, and living a life that makes them happy every single day?

My guest Elena Sonnino is all about finding those little moments of joy, to ultimately help us find our spark and live a happier life – even in the hardest of times.

Elena is a life coach, yin yoga teacher, and author. What most people say about Elena is that she brings delightful sparks of energy to everything she does.

Elena is on a mission to help you transform the walls of survival mode into doors of possibility so that you can step into the spotlight of your life as your most rooted and nourished self. Her work helps you get out of your head and into your body as your source of wisdom, and moves you from beyond shoulds and into delight, one day at a time.

At home, Elena enjoys watching the sunrise, tending to her many plants, riding her Peloton bike, and impromptu kitchen dance parties.
