Embodied Heart Wisdom
ABOUT JELENA DEVI
Welcome to my space to move together through life. I invite you to simply be and express who you are.
Finding your truth through embodiment practices as yoga and dance, which connect you to your essence, your body, nature and to each other.
“Jelena” is my birth name. “Mukti Devi” -meaning “liberated Goddess”- is my spiritual name given in a yoga ashram initiation.
As this is my space of connecting to you and the world; I am all about bridging the human life experience and the Divinity within each and every one within the pure heart.

Giving thanks to your beautiful heart for being on this journey.
With LOVE Jelena
Nature – the earth is my guide & teacher. This is where I remember who I am and find peace within.

I felt really strongly how dance & yoga helps me to embody these different feminine energies and get in touch with different aspects of my being. Jelena is an amazing dancer, yogini and teacher. She truely embodies the empowered woman and her teachings include a range of powerful practices from dance, meditation, yoga, ceremonies, rituals and much more. Her strong yet warm and gentle pesence allows everyone to feel save and move forward in their own pace. She created a wonderful container for us to learn, expand, heal, transform but also relax, enjoy and connect amongst sisters. Jelena has this very nurturing and joyful energy – you just have to love her!
I used to dance a lot in clubs at the age of 23 to 28 and I loved dancing for hours and hours. Sadly I then had experiences of being judged by how I move, especially by women. I felt put down and seen as a competitor instead of being seen as a sister.
I didn’t feel free anymore in my body or style of clothes and started to suppress my feminine expression.
After the Shakti Rising Immersion with Jelena in Bali this lost part of mine finally came back to me! I found pleasure again in expressing my femininity in my own unique way. I finally don’t care anymore what others think of me and allow myself to be fully myself and dance again every day!
I met Jelena when I was at one of my lowest points, and she changed my life.
I have a chronic illness that had become so unmanageable that I had completely dissociated from my self and my body. In fact, I was in a space where I hated my body for causing me pain and I didn’t realize how much I had physically contracted and isolated myself spiritually in the process.
I decided to join Jelena’s Kundalini dance series on a whim (it felt so aligned) and from the moment I entered her beautiful container, I felt myself soften and begin to slowly open up again. Jelena holds space in such a loving and caring way, that I was able to dance a lot of my embodied trauma away and start to truly FEEL MYSELF again! I feel Jelena embodies LOVE and SELF LOVE in a way I have yet to experience in my 32 years.
I have come away from her classes and courses with incredible tools to use in my everyday life and practice and I feel that through Jelena’s guidance I feel more grounded, aligned and close to my purpose and deeper self than ever before.
After having travelled for some years all over the world, I felt a deep urge to ground and make Switzerland (Zurich) my home, as I had a strange intuition that that’s where I would find my tribe and where I would grow and rise as a conscious woman and a human being. As soon as I met Jelena, during her Kundalini Chakra Dance Journey, I had the strong realisation that her teachings, her energy and herself were definitely part of my healing journey – as if her soul had called me home. Since then, I took part in many of her offerings including her first Shakti Rising Teacher Training in Bali in 2020. I truly look up to her as I admire her power, wisdom, light, happiness and embodied femininity.
