Elena Mahí Pavlidou-Reisig
certified yoga and modern dance teacher, meditation facilitator, jikiden reiki practitioner and architect
Dance and movement have accompanied her since her early childhood, leading her from a classical ballet training to contemporary and modern dance, and planting the seed of her fascination for awareness and coordination of movement, flow and lines. In her twenties, she discovered yoga as wonderful means to energise and centre her body and mind, allowing her to respond with calmness to the demands of her work as an architect. During her extensive yoga teacher training in 2012, she decided to integrate her passion for movement in her life professionally. Mahí is a registered architect (Berlin Chamber), certified yoga teacher (Hatha, Vinyasa and Hot Yoga) and modern dance teacher (ISTD). Her training further includes meditation and breath work techniques, anatomy, ayurveda, energy and chakra work. For over a decade she has been practicing yoga and has been teaching since 2012. In 2017, she co-founded MALU holistics together with Matthew Garuda Hallam.
Today Mahí is working as a yoga teacher and meditation facilitator, leading workshops and retreats mainly in Germany and Greece, while also continuing her work as an architect.
