Deciding to commit to working with Alena has been profoundly enriching and life changing for me. She holds a fiercely loving container that continues to support and anchors me into my own medicine and embodiment in depths that I hadn’t experienced before. I feel more aligned and connected to the divine mystery and earth and hold no doubt that this has come as a direct harvest of having Alena as a mentor. Her wisdom is infinite and ancient and her humility of service, incomparable. I feel extremely blessed and grateful to be witnessed and guided by such a powerful medicine woman.

When I was initially connecting with Alena the quote: “the teacher appears when the student is ready” deeply resonated with me. However, Alena’s unique Earth Medicine stretches far beyond a traditional teacher and classroom. The Earth Medicine container is a co-created space to heal, learn, re-member, connect and express. Alena’s expansive knowledge, experience, feminine wisdom, and practice held not only the “lessons” I was yearned to learn, but “baptized” me into a new way of being.
Alena’s Earth Medicine found me at time I felt most “empty.” Our container is a full “well” I’ve come to draw upon for continued clarity, strength, and inspiration. Since working with Alena, I’ve reconnected to sacred and holy energies, engaged devotional practices, and rejuvenated relationships within myself and with others. I highly recommend Alena’s offering for those whose spirit whispers and yearns for earthly possibility.

Working with Alena has been soul revealing for me. It happened at the time I needed it the most, and I dived into her teachings and guidance with all myself. I cannot explain in words what this journey has taught me and what keeps teaching me, but I can tell is definitely life-changing, mind-changing, body-changing and Alena is the best soul I could imagine to have as a spiritual mentor.
Thank you for your wise words, your passion and your heart full of gratitude, your support and your precious guidance. I know this is a never-ending journey and there's still a lot to be walked through, but having you in my life makes me feel I can do it. I love you.
Alena's guidance, support and wisdom has been such a gift in my life. To have her as an ally, mentor and counsellor has been absolutely invaluable. Since working with her, I've felt an acceleration of my spiritual growth, a deeper understanding and acceptance of myself, of my light and my dark, and I've been able to move through challenges in my life with greater ease, receiving with more awareness the gifts those challenges offer. She's helped me through many tough times and has felt like a constant anchor, and a rock through the turbulence.
I feel like Alena truly sees me, genuinely cares about me, has an ability to draw out my gifts and my strengths, while also not being afraid to call me out when I'm in my head or in my ego. Her deep and fine-tuned wisdom constantly helps me find a higher perspective and to re-program old belief patterns that have held me back. If you're dedicated to your path of growth, want to embrace your true power, to heal your wounds, to come to inner balance, to connect with the Earth's magic within you, and to have someone wisely guide you through life's most difficult and personal struggles, then I highly recommend Alena. I feel like everyone needs an Alena in their lives!
I am following Earth Medicine for almost a year and a half with Alena. My journey, which was started as additional course on my yoga teacher skills, turned out to be a deep journey to find my real self and to be my own healer. Beside all tools and deep wisdom learned, the constant support of my beloved teacher sister Alena made this journey so personal strong and unique. As they say “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.” I am so blessed that our ways have crossed. Thank you many many times for holding me, giving me space, sharing your wisdom and helping me to find my true self and my divine purpose. Love you from bottom of my heart.
Working with Alena is so much more than, and different from actual "work". It's a journey where you travel to the edge of yourself in order to find your center. Alena is a guide and mentor like no other I've had before. She offers perspective, balance, and a safe space to evolve. Her knowledge never fails to amaze me.
Thanks so much for everything!
I feel so utterly blessed to attend Alena’s Astanga classes and receive her wisdom and knowledge always shared with such clarity and grace. Her classes are deep, focused and healing, authentic yet thoroughly refreshing. Her strong prescence, beauty and guidance on and off the mat have been invaluable source of inspiration and elevation for me on my Astanga journey. So much gratitude and and love for a wonderful teacher and woman. Thank You x.
I first met Alena when I began my 200hr Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training at Tattvaa in Rishikesh. She is beyond incredible at what she does – as a teacher & in her own personal practice (which is mesmerizing & inspiring). Alena is a motivational teacher, understands her students needs & is very in tune with each body in her class. She has a very gifted way of assisting with adjustments & advancing in a pose – I was even surprised by where my body could go with the right knowledge & understanding. Alena made me feel safe & supported during a very intense, challenging time in my life & I am forever grateful. I didn’t realise how much emotion & ‘baggage’ is stored in the body & released during intense practice in order to heal & grow & she has been guiding me the entire time – even a year & a half after the completion of my training. If I had the opportunity to learn & practice under Alena’s tutelage again, I would not hesitate.

I learned almost everything I know about Yoga from Alena Natalia Charow. I like that she gives a little bit of the history of yoga before each class to help students understand the intentions behind the practice instead of just the physical/fitness side of the practice. I always felt comfortable in her class and enjoyed the postures. She also would never cancel a class even if there was not enough people, instead she would just work more with each student. She has helped me develop my own practice with ease and in turn I now have the ability to help others with their practice as well.
Alena Charow has taught for me at Hart Yoga during the past two years when she has been in the area. She’s a delight! Her teaching is intelligent, grounded and compassionate, with great attention to detail, and her knowledge base is far-reaching. She can teach a variety of styles, and whether it’s a flow, a more static class, yin yoga, or yoga nidra, it always leaves me feeling balanced, energized and centered. She is utterly reliable, and I always look forward to her classes.

Best teachers are best learners, I’m glad to say that Alena is a progressive teacher who is constantly striving to bring yoga in her life. She is intuitive and logical. She has sharpened her skills through self study and practice. I highly recommend her services to individuals and institutes.
