About Elena

Elena is a Crystal Light Therapy practitioner, Pellowah and Reiki practitioner and qualified Yoga Teacher. Elena has been studying various energy healing modalities for a number of years and is passionate about sharing this work with others and helping them on their journey of transformation.

Elena was born in Russia. From early years she was interested in languages and exploring other cultures which led her to study Linguistics and Inter-cultural Communication at Vyatka State University of Humanities in Kirov, Russia. Upon completion of her studies with a Diploma in Translation (with English and German as her majors), she moved to England to practice the language and to continue with her studies. Whilst in England, she completed MA in International Studies at the University of Birmingham. Shortly after, she moved to Australia.

Her first job in Australia was in the corporate sector, working for one of the biggest insurance companies in Australia. Elena has always enjoyed the people aspect of her corporate career. She loves working with people and is passionate about bringing out the best in people and seeing them grow. She has completed Certificate IV in General Insurance, several Leadership workshops and programs and a Career Resiliency Program for women.

Elena is also a qualified Yoga Teacher. Elena practices and teaches yoga at Yoga Flame studio in Moonee Ponds in Melbourne. She enjoys attending various yoga workshops and courses to learn more about the philosophy of yoga, meditation and teaching techniques.

Like many students, Elena was attracted to yoga because of the physicality of the practice. But it wasn’t long before she noticed benefits seeping into other aspects of her life. Coming from a corporate background, Elena is familiar with the difficulties many students face in balancing work and career with personal life. “Yoga for me is about learning to live in the flow and joy of the present moment on and off the mat,” she says.

After completing her teacher training at Australian Yoga Academy in 2010, Elena went on to train with Duncan Peak, Simon Borg-Oliver, Barbra Noh and Simon Park.

Elena teaches yoga from her own experience and her philosophy is simple and effective: “Through working on our physical body and breath we remove energy blocks and tension in the body allowing energy to move more freely. Once that happens, everything in life starts to flow and the natural state of peace, contentment and wellbeing comes easily.”

Elena has always been interested in mind-body-spirit connection and through her yoga studies she learnt about energy centres of the body called chakras and how by working on these chakra systems directly we can bring positive changes in physical, mental and emotional areas of our lives. In 2013 she went to Brazil where she learnt about the Crystal Light Bed Therapy. Since she first experienced the Crystal Light Bed Healing, Elena has had a lot of positive changes in her life and career. She has been able to let go of a lot of stress, tension, heavy emotions, negative beliefs and self-sabotage and has experienced more confidence, clarity and awareness than ever before. Elena was drawn to visit Casa de Dom Inacio in Brazil again to deepen her connection and understanding of this work. Having received so many benefits herself, she is passionate about sharing this work with others to help them on their own journey to transformation. Crystal-Bed

“We all have a great power inside of us to create our own reality. Somewhere along the way many of us have lost connection with that power. The Crystal Bed Healing helps to re-discover that connection by helping to remove anything that no longer serves us, so we can step into our power and let our inner light shine brightly.” Read more…
