From the sprawling tattoos to her flowing Italian accent, yoga instructor Eleanora Zampatti is to yoga what the moon is to the tides. One cannot move if the other is stagnant. This is exactly the purpose that Eleanora sets for her students and classes. For every pose, there is a gentle intention. For every emotion, there is an unbiased connection. She encourages her students to listen to their bodies, find their inner voices, and rewrite any stories that don’t honor their truths.
An author, fitness model, and cover girl, Eleonora began her career as a varsity synchronized swimmer. Her love for movement and fluidity easily transferred from the water to the dance floor when she moved to NYC and enrolled at Peridance International School of Dance. There, she studied ballet, modern dance, and flexibility, but not until she tried a hot yoga class one day that her life was transformed.
As a survivor of domestic violence, Eleonora's distinct teaching style and practice are heavily influenced by her experiences. Like the cycles of the moon, she focuses on the lyrical flow of dark andlight, life and death, strength and surrender. In addition to her work as a teacher, Eleonora created a movement very near and dear to her heart: Ode to the Moon Project. This is a unique yoga practice that combines art, music, and yoga to heal the soul and bring awareness to the topic of domestic violence.
Now a full-time international yoga instructor and body movement specialist based in New Jersey, Eleonora also enjoys teaching Pilates, yogalates, stretch and flexibility training, staby, and one-on-one fitness training. Eleanora resides in New Jersey with her partner, Chris, and two lovable Sphynx cats.
