I have learnt the discipline of observation, which is so important in life and in my career. Since taking classes with Elaine, I've begun to observe how my too fast-thinking mind affected my relationship with my colleagues and friends.
I am confident going forward with the positive traits that I have cultivated with mindfulness.
Elaine listens and readily adapts to my needs. She extends a listening ear to pick up on the way I practice and guides me on overcoming my obstacles.

Mediation has helped me to find ways to relax more in the evenings and enjoy a good night’s sleep. This gives me the energy to spend a full and active weekend with my family.
Elaine teaches me how to be mindful of the sensations in my body. I become more aware of how my behavior is influencing my teams' perception of how much I value them.
I have since been promoted to a bigger role back in London and want to thank Elaine for her mindfulness teaching.

I find myself smiling often during yoga classes with Elaine. After every yoga class my mind feels less cluttered and my body more fluid. I love that Elaine holds her students accountable to working hard and correct form.
I’ve recommended Elaine’s class to many of my friends and they’ve all enjoyed it tremendously.
Elaine gives me personal attention and explains in ways I can easily relate to. Yoga is so enjoyable! I’ve learnt to calm myself during stressful times in my life. I am now completely comfortable with my body and who I am.
After learning yoga from Elaine, I finally realized that there is nothing wrong with me.

Sunday yoga class with Elaine was one of the most joyful part of my weekly routine activities. Her care for every individual yoga practitioner, thoughtful teaching in yoga, meditation, life and more, and the long-lasting friendship are what I take away with great memories.

ANXIETY & HEART PALPITATIONS
I had been feeling stressed and with certain level of anxiety for the previous months before finding Elaine’s course. I was experiencing heart palpitations and chest pain due to the anxiety. I googled in search of possible options and it was only after reading Elaine’s program that I felt her one-to-one Yoga Therapy Course could work for me.
After contacting her and giving her details of my condition she invited me for a more informative session before committing to sign up for the course. I did sign up for the course because I felt that Elaine was a very professional coach and her approach was friendly and sincere.
- The contents of the course included exactly what I needed, a totally customized program to my physical and emotional needs.
Elaine planned each lesson according to my progress, both physical and emotional. Elaine is a very friendly and approachable coach who truly cares about the quality of her work.
- I highly recommend Elaine’s Yoga Therapy Course to those who feel stressed by work, lifestyle or personal worries.

FEASTING, PANTING & COMMUNION WITH THE BODY
Elaine encourages us to practice the essence of yoga – listen, feel and be aware of our own body. There is no competition. We practice according to each of our own body condition.
Prior to meeting Elaine, I have learnt and practised yoga for 10 years. From my first hand experience after attending this private course, to truly know yoga, a person has to at least attend a private yoga course once. Yoga is not just about stretches or the ability to perform impressive poses; Yoga is a platform to comprehend one’s own body, mind and spirit. Elaine is capable of leading me to face my own weaknesses and recognize my potentials. She guided me through a transformation process – from weakness to relaxation to easy maneuver. This is a very important point - under Elaine’s guidance, Yoga is no longer a ritual to perform poses. Yoga is communion with the body and mind.
What I have learnt from Elaine are different dimensions of the human body and mind that complements my life coaching skills that I continuously add on to my personal development and also transmit across to my students. Without doubt, I will be continuing yoga classes with Elaine.
