My personal mantra is 'Know your body. Know your mind. Know your spirit.' I want my classes to be a total immersion in the ancient principles of Ashtanga and Hatha yoga in the knowledge that only through forming a union of all three principles can we find health, happiness, vitality and spiritual growth. I combine asanas with pranayama, mudras, chanting and chakra balancing. I also include the principles of mindful meditation and mindfulness in motion in the form of Qigong-style energy work. More than anything I want my lessons to be fun, life enhancing, friendship forming and spiritually inspiring.
I have practised Hatha yoga for over twenty years and I decided seven years ago to take a Yoga Teacher Training in Sri Lanka at Rukshan Yoga with the amazing Yogi Chanaka Rukshan. Since then I have studied Astanga yoga in India and Yin Yoga with a Croatian teacher. I have practised and taught Qigong for more than ten years. I am also an artist and run my art gallery in the beautiful Croatian resort of Rovinj. We practise our yoga and meditation outdoors either in the amazing cedar tree parkland or overlooking the beautiful waters of the Adriatic sea.
I have been facilitating Meditation sessions for some time and teach at Yomad, the Rovinj Yoga , Music and Dance festival.
In the winter months I have been teaching at Rukshan Yoga, Sri Lanka.
Although I have been a Buddhist for over 25 years and practise daily meditation, I do not impose my beliefs and enjoy encouraging diversity. Our vitality lies in our differences; our knowledge and wisdom lie in acceptance and experimentation and thus my yoga is a combination of several styles and I try to shape this to my students' needs on a lesson-to-lesson basis. Do not be afraid to come along if you are a beginner; we all were once!
