About Me

Ever since I was a child, my strong sense of compassion and empathy for others was a driving force in my life. Very early on, still living in my hometown in Croatia, I got into sports and tried out various activities, ending up with a 12 year swimming and diving carreer, where I also helped train others. This was the beginning of my discovery of the importance of breath. 

In my teen years, I started working in hospitality, thriving on providing service to others and simply trying to make their everyday lives at least a bit brighter. 

As fun and engaging as this work was, it always felt like there was something missing. 

Moving to Holland at the age of 23 changed a great deal for me. Leaving my friends, family and activities behind and entering a huge new world of possibilities began to create space for the development of the person I am today. 

For the last 6 years, Yoga has been an inevitable part of my life, not only the physical aspect of it, but the entire philosophy it is based on. 

It taught me the importance of movement, breath, self - discipline and control and understanding of the mind.

Through it, the magnificent, Tibetan singing bowls found their way to my heart.

This love became partnership when I started working in the Wellness industry at spa Weesp, providing Soundbaths, Tibetan bowl rituals, Löyly's and massage treatments.  

Soon enough I started putting together my own workshops and sound jouney's, also collaborating with some magnificent people. 

In 2021, I first got in contact with plant medicine and yet another love was born. Love and respect towards plants and Mother Nature, or, so called 'Pachamama'.

Nature and Yoga have taught me so many precious lessons, which I use daily to heal myself and help others learn to do the same.
