Ellen Adarna is now celebrating her freedom as she successfully finished her two-week meditative gymnastic program in Bali, Indonesia.
In a series of Instagram Stories she shared last March 14, the actress detailed the training she underwent to improve her mental and emotional health. Ellen said she decided to do mental trainings after being “stuck in a black hole for almost three years.”
“To everyone asking, I did mental training ‘coz I was stuck in this black hole for almost 3 years. My anti-depressants didn’t do me any good, it made me immobile and numb,” she wrote.
“I was getting weaker mentally and emotionally—something had to be done. I can now finally say, after years of struggling…I am no longer a prisoner in my own mind. Ahhhh! Freedom we meet again,” she added.
Ellen's therapy included standing still on the same spot for five hours, getting wrapped in plastic, doing a blindfolded exercise, hopping around for five kilometers, and cutting bermuda grass one by one and arranging them “harmoniously.”
After 14 days of intense training, isolation, and “dealing with her demons,” Ellen finally received her certificate.
