Elena Porter

Founder - I AM 360
Inspirational Speaker, Yoga and Meditation Instructor
Elena Porter is the pioneer of Christ Centered Yoga. In 2002, Elena created a unique version of yoga where she combined her Christian faith with the practice of yoga. At that time, if you searched for Christian Yoga on the web, there was nothing to be found. She started this journey with just two students and over the past 16 years, the yoga ministry has grown to thousands of students. Elena's yoga practice inspires people at a soul level. She knows that for each life, each soul she impacts to see life differently, to gain new perspective, to see life through the lens of love, to give more, to accept others, to seek peace, that one lovingly impressed soul affects multiple other souls.

Elena is known for finding the good in all things. Even in the darkest times and personal tragedy she has a way of finding the good, if only in the lesson. That is until she experienced the unimaginable – the sudden loss of her child.

Fast-forward three painful years, years that have shown her the value of today and the hope of tomorrow. That true healing comes from serving others. That God does have great plans for all of us. That we do not have to be completely healed to be used. And that every day is a gift. Elena is a noticer and everyone who crosses her path knows that she cares and parts with a smile.

I AM 360 was created to represent all that Elena wants to be and influence others to be. I AM is a powerful statement of all that is true, good and beautiful. 360 is about being fully transformed and rooted in love.
Elena's dreams for I AM 360 is to be, and encourage others to be, the difference, to inspire people to want to be intentional with their words, actions and choices and to pay attention to life and all that is going on around them.

Elena has taken her inspiration on the road. She is speaking to groups on Finding your Happy, Practicing your Purpose, Changing your Story, Being the Difference, and Kindness Matters to encourage all people to live life with purpose, to spread love and light in this world.

She has taught yoga and meditation in public school where she modifies ever so slightly the themes to assure they are inspirational end inclusive.
