alena's journey

Founder, Teacher, Yogi

My life journey took me all over the world where I was influenced by eastern cultures, practicing Tai Chi & Qi Gong, leading me to develop an interest in the wellbeing of the body, mind, and spirit.


Since 2004, I have been gathering experience as a massage therapist in a large variety of environments, including fitness studios, mobile massage therapies, the Weleda Wellness Centre, as well as being a member of the Holistic Health Team providing holistic therapies for corporate companies & charities.

My early experience with Tai Chi & Qi Gong opened my eyes to energy healing. In 2008, I took Reiki Level 1 training. After completing Level 2 in 2009, I started implementing Reiki techniques in my massage therapies and built up my experience & knowledge towards achieving the Reiki mastership & teacher certification in 2017. 

In 2015, I qualified as a Hatha Yoga Teacher, at Bahia Yoga in Nottingham, after completing the 200-hour training course. Being a keen learner, I continued to develop my skills as a yoga teacher by attending a variety of yoga immersions and CPD yoga courses. This is where I developed a passion for restorative yoga. And towards the end of 2019, I will undertake an advanced teachers training of 300-hours of elemental yoga therapy in Bali. 


I am extremely passionate about people's wellbeing, helping them to relax and recharge, and finding a way to maintain balance in life.
