Befriending the uncertainties
Being mindful makes us happier and psychologically healthier. This is what modern researchers from the world’s best scientific centers and ancient spiritual traditions agree upon. As a certified mindfulness teacher I help people to connect with their inner resources of strength and wisdom through mindfulness practice.

Hello and welcome! I am Elena. My students also know me as Namdag - the name I have received from my teacher, a prominent Tibetan meditation master Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche.
I have walked a long path to get where I find myself now - teaching skills that we all need to cope with stress, especially in these times of unprecedented uncertainty. I help people discover their inner sources of strength, peace and joy.

My 8-Week MBSR Course
What people say
It was a phenomenal 8 weeks of brainstorming, practices sessions, sharing our experiences and exploring the mindful journey! Elena is excellent, mindful instructor who is very patient, supportive, and always open to questions.
Pradeep R., India
This was the most helpful and enjoyable mindfulness course I have taken! We were able to connect through Zoom with others all around the world. It allowed me to grow in my self-acceptance and love knowing that there are other people around the globe practicing mindfulness and struggling with similar things as I am.

Elena's course came at a perfect time for me. Having experimented with mindfulness practices for several years, it finally gave me the missing nudge to take them to a whole new level - thanks to Elena's gentle guidance to develop a consistent daily practice, embracing the playfulness and challenges that come with the busy mind.
Lucia K., Slovakia
I have been meditating for many years and dabbed into everyday mindfulness, but mostly approached it as a “should-do” type of task. The MBSR course helped me in shifting my mindset. I now cannot imagine my day without meditation, mindful yoga or mindfulness practices.
Corinne B., South Africa
I really appreciated the fact that people in the class came from all over the world, yet we were all learning the same thing and having similar questions. It was really a privilege to be in the class.
Lampros K., Greece
Elena’s MBSR course is having a positive impact on so many aspects of my daily life. I can definitely recommend it as a way to do a MBSR course. Her guided meditations are wonderful - she has such a beautiful voice it makes me feel calmer.
