My name is Elena Jacinta, and I’m the creator of Back to the Body project.

Understanding the body has always been one of my main interests and passions, not only as part of my job as a Yin Yoga facilitator and an EFT tapping practitioner, but also in my personal life. For nearly fifteen years, I worked as a professional dance artist and teacher while moving between countries in Europe. But the experience of living with and recovering from a burnout and chronic fatigue gave me a different perspective and contributed to a much deeper understanding of the mind-body connection.

I started Back to the Body project as a space to share useful tools, physical practices, and mindfulness techniques for those who deal with stress, anxiety and a chronically low level of energy.

Back to the Body aims to help people with chronic fatigue, burnout, and low energy to find a way to befriend their own body through safe and gentle movement practices and relaxation exercises. It’s a collection of resources in the form of articles, audio content, and video lessons created in collaboration with exceptional teachers and practitioners specifically for people dealing with stress, anxiety and persistent fatigue.

We are here to assist you on your journey back home – back to your body, carefully selecting and adapting the material and practices we share to make them more accessible.
