Namaste to all!
Founder of "Metta Float Yoga & SUP" center in Pula and the pioneer of SUP YOGA in Croatia.
In 2001 I went to India for the first time where I discovered the traditional yoga philosophy and embraced it as my spiritual lifestyle.
In 2009, on my 5th trip to India I settled at Satyananda's Ashram in Bihar to finish a 4-month "Yogic Studies" course where I received Jignasa Diksha, my 2nd initiation from Swami Niranjananande.
Ever since I become an insatiable seeker, thankful for discovering new way of life which constantly reveals the endless possibilities within us, and deepens my personal development.
The very same year I started my 3-year college education and received a degree as a fitness trainer.
In 2011 I went to Dharamsala (India), where I successfully finished a 14-week course to become a certified yoga teacher in the Himalayan Iyengar Yoga Center under the guidance of Sharat Arora (Anand Sagar), a long-time student of Iyengar.
The same year, influenced by the Buddhist philosophy I had embraced during my stay in Dharamsala, I also completed a 10-day course of Vipassana meditation in Dehradun, India.
The turning point in my career happened in 2013, when I decided to open the first SUP Yoga Studio in Croatia and the region, which became my first solo project. Just before the beginning of the first Metta Float season I headed off to Portugal's beautiful Baleal Beach where I finished a Stand Up Paddleboard course for paddling on calm seas, rivers, and waves in accordance with ASI (Academy of Surfing Instructors) standards.
There isn't anything better than spending time in a yoga studio created by Mother Nature itself :)
In this moment I am giving classes on land and on the SUP Board during the summer season.
And you are all welcome to join me :)
