    Satyananda School (Nidra Yoga)

    Yoga London (Yoga)

    Elena 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 her 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. Her 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.

Holycombe is a beautiful residential holistic retreat centre, set in a verdant wooded valley on the edge of the Cotswold village of Whichford. A natural stream rises from a holy well in the nearby wood, passes though the grounds, and down a waterfall. The sound of running water adds to the sense of peace and tranquility.

A coppice provides shady outdoor space - there’s a campfire area and a large stone circle on the castle site. Across a meadow is the ancient Whichford wood, with many rare species of trees and plants, an abundance of wood anemones, primroses, and bluebells in spring, while chestnuts, blackberries, and sloes in autumn. Wildlife abounds everything from muntjac to polecats and kingfishers.

Set in six acres, Holycombe is built in the grounds of a Norman Castle, and has a water-filled moat, habitat for carp and dragonflies. Sally and Andy Birtwell rescued the site from 40 years of being a scrap yard, dedicating six years of their life to the restoration. They have built a beautiful house and garden to honor the sacred landscape.

Archaeologists have excavated a Roman conduit carrying water from the springs in the wood to the site, and dowsers and geomancers have suggested it was a sacred site before Roman the occupation. They also believe that six ley lines converge on the stone circle.

    "Just got back from the yoga retreat with Balabashka Wellness - it was really good. It was so relaxing and rejuvenating. The weekend went so fast, in fact too fast! It was a well deserved break for me and I am really glad that I signed up for it. Elena the yoga instructor was just fantastic and easy to talk to and provided additional advice on yoga poses that I struggled with. Location was beautiful and the sun was out too so that made it all the more worthwhile!"

    "I was able to make it what I wanted. The practice was re-energising, the setting picturesques and the fellow travellers easy to share with. The program was great. The yoga practice each morning and afternoon evening was challenging and well paced. Elena is very knowledgable and hospitable. I am not a regular practitioner and my fears of being out of my depth were put to rest. "
