Sati Tias - your comprehensive online source
of knowledge about business of yoga,
Mindfulness & Meditation
My name is Yelena Tagiyeva and I use a name “Sati Tias” when I work to enhance mindfulness and support yoga teachers in creation of long-lasting fulfilling work.

Most of all I am passionate about 2 things:

1. Establishment of a meaningful business activities

2. and integration of mindfulness in daily life,

because both things help to create a life with a meaning.

Following my long lasting passions I studied and obtained nearly 20 years of practical experience in:

1. Professional development of business strategy, consulting & coaching

2. Dedicated practice of yoga and meditation with later teaching of yoga and meditation

Today I work as a professional coach and business consultant. I obtained an MBA at Webster University, Vienna. I develop and teach customized courses for companies on topics such as effective communication and enhancement of presentational skills. I also collaborate as an independent on-demand coach with one of the leading European business schools to support professionals to learn online the development of strategic managerial skills.

Under the name “Sati Tias” I have created this website,

a digital yoga book,

an online mini-lectures on mindfulness

and 1:1 coaching program

as well as write a blog

to support curious, intelligent and open-minded people: yoga teachers and people who are interested in meditation and mindfulness.

My professional qualifications, sources of knowledge about yoga and mediation are:

I spent my first 8 years by practicing “classics of yoga” – Iyengar and Ashtanga styles. Today my intention is to share my rich combined yoga and business knowledge online as well as to enhance the holistic view of yoga practice in my Yoga Book.

I am specially passionate about innovative ways of understanding things and see innovation as an important part of my activties: coaching, consulting and enhancement of mindfulness.

Sati talks WHAT you can learn here and WHY you should learn it
Mindfulness and meditation @ meditation classroom:


In online mini-lectures “Meditation classroom” I teach how to meditate and act mindfully in daily life.


How to meditate: meditation techniques, mindfulness based meditation How to integrate mindfulness in private and professional life: doable strategies and lifehacks.

WHY : 

Meditation techniques can help you to learn how to be mindful anywhere and anytime. A mindful life is a brave self-creation of meaningful and purposeful time. As a result you have a fulfilling life when you feel stable and content. Firstly we might need meditation to boost mindfulness, later on we can act mindfully without regular meditation practice.

Business of Yoga: learn @ online coaching session


In 1:1 online coaching session “Yoga teachers tactics and calculations” I teach self-employed yoga teachers or students of yoga teacher trainings how to turn their passion into fulfilling long-lasting paid work.


How to organize and run a self-employed yoga teaching in a long–lasting fulfilling career.


Over many years in yoga world I noticed that most of yoga teachers struggle with the issues of business organization. Almost nobody likes it and sees as an extra obligation to the favorite activity – yoga teaching. In the reality, business side of yoga is as important as your own practice and content of your classes.

Right business organization makes your professional teaching activity joyful and noticeable. If business is well set up, you feel empowered, in control and all of sudden gain much time to prepare classes and trainings.

My experience in business coaching combined with an experience in yoga teaching allows me to be helpful and supportive if you want to learn how to start and run your yoga teaching career.

Take care about your yoga teaching career and READ MORE about the coaching sessions

Holistic practice of yoga – learn @ digital book


In my yoga book I share my modern intake on yoga with rich illustrations, up-to-date explanations and concrete doable exercises.


  • Philosophy of yoga with clear light modern explanations
  • Practice of yoga postures – precise alignment for safe healthy asanas
  • Meditation techniques – easy doable exercises for daily practice
  • Practice management – integration of the knowledge of yoga for a better well-being


Yoga practice represents a great system to gain more control (or in contrast sometimes to let go of any control) over own body and thinking patterns. This system, if practiced with the right intention or with the holistic approach, might bring significant improvement of the quality of life. It is easier than we think.

Does it make sense to try a holistic approach to your yoga practice?
