Testimonials

"In a busy agency environment, balancing an ever-growing to do list with the need for creative thinking can be challenging. My team has found working with Ellena a hugely enjoyable and beneficial experience. Through her mindfulness for business sessions we have learnt practical ways to gain perspective on situations, which ultimately reduces stress and increases productivity. I have introduced mindful exercises into our daily routine and would highly recommend Ellena's workshops to other business owners looking for a fresh approach to team training." Lotte Mahon, MD, The Vine Marketing & PR

"Ellena is a friendly and approachable teacher who delivered a structured and accessible course. From knowing nothing about Mindfulness I now understand the ideas behind it and have been given the tools to start using it in my daily life.Since starting the course I feel that my effectiveness at work has increased – I find it easier to concentrate on prioritising tasks and then completing them – and family time has also benefitted by making a conscious effort to make the time I spend with them more enjoyable (tolerance levels have gone up, telling off down!). Life generally seems a bit calmer and more under control."   Phil Hills Consultancy Manager Cornwall Environmental Consultants (CEC) Ltd

"Ellena's teaching style is calm and perceptive."    Anne

"Mindfulness in the workplace has helped me to feel more calm and relaxed and has enabled me to be more aware and accepting of my thoughts and feelings. This has led to greater clarity of thinking and ultimately greater productivity."   Lynn, Penwith Volunteer Bureau

"The course has been very informative and helpful, the exercises are very enjoyable, and Ellena is an excellent teacher. "   Deborah
