What I offer

I'm a certified yoga instructor specializing in beginner-friendly vinyasa yoga and meditation.
In the summer, I offer outdoor classes for groups, and in the winter private yoga sessions. 

My big passion is a monthly Women's Circle focusing on mindfulness and energy balancing.

My background

Originally from Croatia, I studied Business Administration and worked in Germany and Spain. Travelling has always been my big passion.

 

 

 

 

 

 

How I got into yoga

In 2014, while on a 2-year backpacking trip, I had the opportunity to stay at the Chenrezig Institute, a Buddhist temple at the Sunshine Coast in Australia. There, I learned to meditate and I fell in love with yoga. Yoga made my life better on so many levels, and I wanted to teach it in order to give other people the feeling that I experienced: love, peace and connection.  I love practicing yoga outdoors.

After having traveled for a number of years, I settled with my husband in Calgary, and became a certified yoga instructor in 2017.

I teach gentle yoga styles that have proved to be beneficial for myself. Meditation and Pranayama play a big role in it.
 

 

Why I love yoga

Yoga is more than just a healthy type of exercise, it's a lifestyle and a way of feeling happy, connected, balanced, and in peace.
