About Ela Kolodziej

"The most exciting journey is the one within..."

Ela Kolodziej

It is always hard to describe a person just in words, as humans are very complex beings and we behave differently dependently on our mood, phase in our life, the specific situation, people around and many other factors – isn’t? But here is a little bit about myself…

I founded Inner Growth as a realization of one of my biggest dreams – contributing to the wellbeing of others, doing what I love and living from it.

Moreover, I am an animal fan and I like spending time in nature. Besides that, …

I am a qualified Mindfulness Instructor certified in Zen Coaching and in Rebirthing, passionate about human potential.

After years of international career in business, I got interested in the area of profound personal growth and holistic healing to support myself and others in making the best out of their lives.

Since 2012, I have completed various personal development and meditation courses, as well as coaching and therapies trainings in Sweden, Spain and India; and ever since I am dedicated to share my knowledge, skills and experience for the wellbeing of people. 

I believe that our reality depends heavily on ourselves and what we make out of it. It all starts with us, our perceptions, our attitude, and the choices we make in our everyday life – the increased awareness helps us to better align with our Life Purpose and therefore, living a more balanced and fulfilling life.

Some of my values


Personal Integrity


Alignment between my thoughts, feelings, words and actions; being more and more honest with myself and others; being clear about my intentions and expectations

Openness and Curiosity


About the world, human nature and conditioning, people, their perspective, beliefs… what drives us and what limits us; observing to learn, not to judge



Expanding my comfort zone, being willing to take the risk and try new things aligned with my path, in order to grow as a human being and live a life of my dreams

Deep Connection


When the relations are based on trust, respect, maturity and acceptance, going deep together can be so healing and nurturing to all the parties involved



Positive attitude towards life and people, believing that there is always a way, and focusing on opportunities and win-win solutions… 

“Always look on the bright side of life… na na na na na na na na”

At the same time, acknowledging the problematic areas and dealing with them in a constructive way



and going back to basics – “less is more“.

I believe that our happiness does not depend on all of the fancy stuff and our calendars fully booked with activities, but rather on focusing on fewer things and quality relations that really matter to us 



Being open for a win-win cooperation, supporting each other, adding value, sharing the knowledge and growing together



I would like to experience in my life even more playfulness, joy, fun, creativity and spontaneity
