Client Testimonials

“Elina came to our workplace and facilitated two 1.5 hours mindfulness sessions. I thought these would be very beneficial to our team, as our industry is, by essence, fast-paced, stressful, and all about multi-tasking. Both salespeople and administrative staff attended the workshop and both groups left with tools and tips about reducing and managing stress, learning how to be a better communicator, paying more attention to our surroundings and our triggers. Elina was super engaging and gave us some hands-on exercises to do on our own. The workshop is not intended to give you all the answers – as this wouldn’t be possible to do in a short 3 hours - but it is an excellent introductory course that leaves you thinking and makes you realize that small changes can make a big difference. I highly recommend this course to any managers who is looking at improving their employees’ wellbeing and performance at work.” 





Serena Mars, Office Manager, Bayleys Queenstown


"We organized a Mindfulness session led by Elina for our hotel team at Kamana Lakehouse in Queenstown. The team feedback is great: they truly enjoyed the workshop, found it very beneficial in their daily life and absolutely loved the mindfulness, relaxation and meditation techniques Elina shared during the workshop. The exercises were very well personalized to our team needs and took us on a discovery journey. Elina is professional, approachable and her nurturing nature provided our team with the safe space to open, be themselves, discover and improve. We recommend Elina's mindfulness workshop to all companies looking to improve productivity and well-being of their team."
