I’m Elena Lin. 

Contemporary dancer. Martial arts practitioner. 
Explorer of movement in all its forms.

For the past 20 years, I’ve explored and integrated contemporary dance techniques, Butoh dance, African dance, free body expression, physical theater, contact improvisation, Chinese martial arts, and other Asian disciplines into a practice that allows me to move freely and express myself in a unique way. 

While I worked with many leading dance institutions, I also developed an individual program for people who seek meditation in movement. For people like you who love exploring different ways to express themselves. 

It’s been an incredible journey, and I find myself passionate to help people explore what they can do in the ‘Mind is Resting in the Body’ program, tailored to their unique goals and skill level.

Mind is resting in the body-program

Move your body
while your mind finds peace

You’ve always sought to express yourself. Maybe you dance. You play in theater productions. Or you write, paint, sing. It’s what you do—exploring creative outlets unique to who you are. You love moving, and you find motion can be an outlet and bring peace.

Now imagine what it could feel like to move freely while your mind is at peace too. When you find your natural flow and your entire being is in harmony.

That’s what the Mind is Resting in the Body program is about. It’s you and me exploring your unique expression in movement. It’s using a multitude of techniques to find freedom in your movement and balance in your mind.
