behind Earth Medicine Co ...
... meet Lena
my dear seeker.
Hello and thank you for being here, opening yourself to seeing more of who I am, the one behind this page and work you have somehow been called to...
My name is Lena.
I am a qualified integrative holistic healing and empowerment coach, mentor, counsellor and therapist. Instead of verbal-vomiting all my qualifications and training experiences on you and expecting that to be the thing that draws you to me - I leave that part to read up in nice, tight bullet points down below if it interests you.
Most importantly - I am someone who is passionate like nothing else about humanity and how each and every one of us has unlimited potential available to us, unique gifts to share, space to take up, empowerment to step into and absolute freedom to claim. My devotion in this lifetime is to be of service - to help you shine a light on your path home. For you to stand in and fully embody your truth, your potential, your power and shine your light.
I am here to listen, to fully see and understand you - for you to break loose from any remnants of "stuff", trauma, hurt, conditioning, pain and limitations that may have kept you small.
My mission is to co-create a new earth of peace, compassion, love, support and harmony - in which we all do not only peacefully co-exist with each other and nature, but embrace and cheer each other on, realise and pursue our dharma (calling) and passion and truly, authentically and fully thrive.
This is how we raise the frequency of this planet.
This is THE work - to know thyself.
To free thyself.
For ALL and EVERYTHING to liberate and thrive.
My work is hardly "work" because it is my passion, my calling. I am devoted to elevate those around me. But next to this, I am simply someone who is a life-loving, nature enthusiastic, ocean addicted, adventurous, creative and hilarious free spirit, foodie, romantic and earth warrior with a gigantic inner child and a passion for living my best life. I am a friend, here to cheer you on and make you believe in yourself again, while taking life a bit less serious.
When we cut the crap we realise: it's all just a game.
And we are all just winging it.
Life is a training and play ground for the evolution of our soul.
We choose to come here to learn and grow - and thereby, in any life experience we find gold.
We may either encounter its shining beauty and delight immediately (positive experiences)
or it is disguised in lessons (negative experiences).
I'd love to introduce you to my world further...
Obviously this ALL that is me, but just the fraction you may expect being introduced first when landing on this page, drawn by the nature of my work - we all have different stories and faces and I would love to share as much as possible with you about me.
As you scroll down you'll find a second video giving you an Intro to my mission with Earth Medicine Co as well as more about the human bean that I am. I'm loving to share with you and can't wait to get to know you too!

INTO THE SHAMANIC & ANCIENT ART AND SCIENCE OF
YOGA AND AYURVDA
Lena’s yoga journey has started in India, where she has graduated her first teacher training over six years ago. Since then she has participated in several yoga, bodywork, therapy and Ayurveda trainings as well as further intensive training in energy and healing practices like Reiki and Hermetic Alchemy in several countries including India, Australia, Thailand and Germany. She is always eager to deepen her understanding and knowledge through further education, disciplined in self-study and practice while she is living a predominately holistic yogic and Ayurvedic lifestyle in the Southwest of Australia. Lena has been teaching yoga and sharing her offerings in Indonesia, specialised for surfers, Australia and Germany, has studied with the Svyasa university in Bangalore, India and is a trained Holistic Health, Food and Lifestyle Coach with the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York, USA.
Lena’s local in-person offerings include different yoga classes & events, Ayurvedic health & lifestyle consults, bodywork and energy healing treatments, and The State of Flow Project (a fusion of music, yoga, free movement and dance, sound, vibration, and creativity for kids and adults) which she facilitates together with her husband, the musician Mac Diarmada, aiming to cultivate body awareness and a deeper understanding & connection of self and others. For more info on her sharings in the Southwest Yallingup Area check out her Instagram or Facebook page, or contact her via email.
Lena is deeply passionate about the therapeutic aspects of Ayurvedic and Yogic practices and offers private and one-on-one yoga therapy sessions next to Ayurvedic and Yogic lifestyle counselling for mental, emotional and physical ailments or imbalances, and holistic health coaching programs suitable and attainable for everyone, online and in person. Furthermore, Lena offers healing and Reiki sessions, bodywork and Reiki attunements for people who feel the calling to empower themselves through the cultivation of life force energy and heighten their own intuition and awareness, also available online and in person.
Believing that Yoga and Ayurveda can assist greatly with stress management and due to own experiences, Lena also focuses on assisting people with mental and stress-related imbalances such as depression and anxiety with holistic spiritual guidance.
"Yoga & Ayurveda have helped me to become who I am today.
- they have been my anchor allowing me to work through deep past trauma of mental, emotional and physical nature, and have assisted me in moving closer towards who I really am and find the light inside myself - a light, that is within EVERYONE of us, in every single being. It has always here - it is just up to ourselves to choose to see and spark it.
Yoga is more than just physical exercise - it is a way of living. So is Ayurveda - an ancient science that's ever relevant and adaptable to modern life for a greater thrive factor. Since it has done so much for myself on a holistic level AKA all aspects of my life, I am passionate about sharing this holistic and natural living approach with people to assist them in their own healing and empower themselves to discover their own true potential, health and happiness. ...
... happiness is health and health is happiness - and both start in our mind. The way we think makes the way we perceive and approach the world. Our own belief systems determine our own reality, how we see others and how we see ourselves. The root for every change lies within - change happens from the inside out as we radiate what we are, what is within us. To heal the world, we have to heal OURSELVES first to then radiate the love, compassion and happiness we have for ourselves into the world. “
BUT WHO else am i?
Apart from all the official stories and backgrounds of why I do what I do and share what I share..what kinda person am I? Scroll down to get to know Lena Kaliyah, the human bean ;)
Let's start again...
Hi there my name is Lena! Another soul navigating and finding her place and space in the fast and vast human world ...
To be all proper, my name is Anna-Lena, which I never liked telling people as I've been called by my, I guess, middle name Lena all my life and didn't want to risk becoming an Anna.
I was born in Germany but never found my home to be there. While some people are born in the wrong bodies, others are born in the wrong countries. - It's a thing.
I am an ancient soul in a modern body with an expansive mind. My mind is the universe multiple psychics told me. Age doesn't mean a thing to me as life is about experiences and your level of consciousness and not the number of years counting on your legal documents. To be honest this might be a reason why I frequently struggle "fitting in" to society and matrix life...I often find this physical world limiting and compressing and my fairy soul would like nothing more than living in some tree trunk in an ancient forest surrounded by fireflies and other spirit beings but I also believe that we are all where we are at for a reason
and in this lifetime, human it is.
I got absolute belief in reincarnation, higher intelligence, universal love & consciousness, god/universe/spirit whatever you like to call it, soul advancement on different levels which determines in what kind of life we get reborn and that human race is just a tiny part of a huge picture. I could get further into this here but also don't want you to think that I am fully going off the rails...
On that note - I am a non-drinker, non-smoker, predominantly vegan and nature-loving barefoot hippie and yes I still have a hell of load of fun in my life: my favourite activities are: fun & play, expressing my inner child which includes the occasional wrestle with my now-husband, daily belly laughs, morning boogies and being dogs' best mate, anything outdoors and in nature, camping trips and adventure, not wearing shoes, travel, being active aka surf, volleyball, hike, ride my bike, nature walks, yoga, general functional movement and mobility training, I love being creative in any form or way: music, painting, writing, poetry, crocheting, macrame, building things, decorating, upcycling, improvising on everything.
I love reading - my book collection may be the most valuable thing in my house. At the same time I don't actually have, or better to say make, too much time to read because I basically LIVE in the kitchen: cooking healthy, nourishing and REAL foods from scratch is probably my biggest passion that I often forget to speak about. My husband, Andy, who is a Musician but also a carpenter (what a combo, huh?! I scored!) has built me an incredible spice rack or better a spice WALL out of Marri wood, which was probably the best thing that has happened in the last year. Kidding, but it's definitely up there. I spend a LOT of time in the kitchen - my old housemate used to say that "If Lena is not in the kitchen, she probably isn't home". True in most cases. I love making good food for good people, having great, deep and meaningful conversations, going out to dance to live music, laughing, playing and wrestling with my partner and dog, West Oz night skies and talking to the universe or more specifically the moon, which I usually do at a night walk when it's full.
I am all about living in alignment aka getting in touch with yourself via your feelings and intuition and being the kindest, loving, genuine and thriving version of myself to create a positive ripple effect and of course live a rad and fun AF life, making the most of every moment.
I am an introverted extrovert or sometimes extroverted introvert, not a fan of small talk and usually need to equalise an afternoon of social time with 3 days to myself. My inner child is taking up a lot of my personality but can switch to mother and crown archetype within a blink. I am an empath, love combining old ancient practices with western modern science and life, nature is my greatest teacher, best friend and happy place. I would choose a shack in the woods over a 5 star hotel any time. I love living simple and lived the van life for 2 years - currently we are working towards a Coaster bus to take The State of Flow Project onto the road.
Although I am German, I am not actually a very timely or punctual person. This is not because I don't respect anyone's time including my own but because I try and fit too many things into every moment available and am not good at waiting, because "I want to be efficient" haha. I always got something to do, I'm pretty sure there's never been a moment of boredom in life, I've always got a project going, if not three. I am a big-time creatress, always juggling many things and manifestations of plenty of ideas - it is my intrinsic nature.
My core values are:
love + truthfulness + impeccability + authenticity + integrity + alignment + respect + acceptance + open-mindedness + trust + compassion + joy + play + creativity + fun + efficiency + kindness + community + health + natural living + giving back + feeling good + doing good + simplicity
I also love going onto little (big) rants about life, philosophy, spirituality, everything holistic living...I'd love to invite you to spend a day in my head - no doubt our new age technology will make that possible soon, perhaps once they release 6G!
Anyways, that's it about me for now, haha :)
Follow me on the socials to get to know me more and I'd love to connect with you!
