Elena BALABASHKA

I am originally from Ukraine, however have lived and traveled in different corners of the world since I was 17. These places have left their imprint on my perception of the world and shaped me into the person that I am today. Some of my favourite corners in the world so far are Denver (USA), Ubud (Indonesia), Mancora (Peru), and London (UK) where I live now.

I have a career in the financial services in London, and have been part of the industry for over 10 years now. This experience has given me an understanding of the health concerns and challenges faced by people in the professional environment, such as too much stress, back pain, lack of energy, time restrictions, and weight gain. I have struggled with these challenges myself and have observed friends and colleagues going through similar experiences.

My mission is to support busy professionals with their health and wellbeing to help them maintain high energy levels that will allow them to succeed in their professional goals and career growth.


My Qualifications

The qualifications listed below have equipped me with a fundamental knowledge in the area of holistic health. However, my skills and experience extend beyond these certificates. I am constantly learning through my own practice, workshops, reading and assisting my clients. Helping my clients achieve their health goals make me happy, and I consider myself lucky to be able to help others.

Yoga Medicine – I am currently in the process of completing my anatomically based 500 hour Teacher Training with Yoga Medicine. Through this training I am learning to understand the body from the eastern and western perspectives, and teach yoga as medicine to help prevent and heal pain, working alongside doctors and other healthcare professional. I am able to understand the body and create individualized yoga prescriptions for my clients.

Yoga Nidra (Satyananda School) – I am trained and able to teach yoga nidra. This is a deep relaxation technique which can have amazing effects on health and the body’s ability to deal with external factors, including stress and disease.

Yoga London (200 hour Teacher Training) – I completed my first teacher training in London, after 10 years of practicing yoga all around the world. Yoga London is Europe’s premier teacher training. This training has provided the foundation of my yoga knowledge, including anatomy, asana, pranayama, kriayas, yoga nidra, and others areas.

Integrative Nutrition Health Coach – Integrative Nutrition is the world’s largest cutting-edge Health Coach Training Program. My education has equipped me with extensive knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and preventive health. Drawing on these skills and my knowledge of different dietary theories, I work with clients to help them make lifestyle changes that produce real and lasting results.
