My Story

I have been studying movement for over 30 years, first through dance and later Pilates and Yoga. 
Born and raised in Yugoslavia, I danced ballet and contemporary dance which brought me to the Netherlands. I studied at Rotterdam Dance Academy (Codarts) where I discovered the beauty and authenticity of the Classical Pilates method which I’m teaching ever since.

Already 15 years ago Yoga became an increasingly important part of my life. When I moved to Amsterdam and found Svaha Yoga, I immediately fell in love with this place and the Bhakti Yoga practices they taught and I got curious to learn more. I enrolled in their Teacher Training and afterwards travelled to India to deepen my practice. This journey opened my heart and changed my life. Soon after, I started teaching Yoga at my home-based studio, Svaha Yoga and other studios in Amsterdam. I had the honour to study and practice with many wonderful teachers and I’m grateful to be able to share this magic with others.

​My classes are based on mindful movement, alignment and flow. They are playful and uplifting, yet meditative. Inspiration I find in music, dance and nature. My practice is also influenced by Vipassana Meditation, Ayurveda and Thai-Yoga massage but the biggest inspiration to me are my students of all backgrounds, shapes and sizes.

Currently I study the art of Zen Shiatsu at Zen Shiatsu Opleiding in Amsterdam.
