Founder of Haven

Elena Menci is an international Yogi who has gained her experience in Bali, India, Dubai & Mallorca. She is 700hrs certified Yoga Teacher who has been trained in Vinyasa, Yin, Swing and Ashtanga Yoga with Iyengar props. She also studied Functional Anatomy, Sports Massage, Guasha, Cupping, Osho Meditation and she continues to learn about a human body & mind which is what fascinates her the most, the power of ones mind.

She was born in Eastern part of Slovakia by High Tatra Mountains where nature has always been a big part of her upbringing and that's what she feels connected to. She worked in the luxury fashion & diamond industry before certain events in her life made her think deeper about life and she decided to dive into learning about Yoga and eventually changed her carrier path and became a Yoga teacher.

Along the way Elena had vision to create a community surrounded by nature, based on intentions that are coming from a non-judgmental place, a safe place where people can connect, interact, exchange experiences and energy and feel “at home”. After living in the Middle East for 10 years she decided to move to Portugal to build this community in the sunny Algarve.
