This was David’s and Jelena’s third, annual visit to Croatia which we were thrilled to host. The 2-week format with daily morning self-practice and weekend and afternoon workshops allowed us to dive deep into the practice of Ashtanga Yoga. It also gave many of the returning students who gathered from 13 countries an opportunity to develop deeper student-teacher relationships.
There are many amazing things that can be said about David and Jelena, our favourite Ashtanga Yoga teachers and dear friends, but we will let the students’ words and these photos tell the story….
We can’t for next year for another 2 week Ashtanga Yoga Intnesive with David and Jelena October, 14-25 Croatia. Stay tuned for more info or sign up for early bird info.
"So this morning during Mysore class I did my first stand up from drop-back, and then I did it again and again.. This is barely a physical achievement for me, it's rather a mental one. For the first time in my life I felt the energy and the need to stand up for myself, to believe in me despite the thoughts, which tried to bring me down. It wasn't a fight with the gravity, it was to make peace with myself, to ask forgiveness for every time I put myself down, for every time I buried my feelings just to please others. Thank you Jelena and David,my teachers, for believing in me and giving me the trust!" EM
"For the third year in a row these two beautiful souls, amazing teachers and ashtangis, Jelena and David, visited Zagreb. Today our two week Ashtanga intensive is over. I learned a lot, sweated a lot, laughed a lot, and enjoyed immensely. Thank you Jelena and David" IJ
"Thank you to my teachers-You cannot even imagine how you changed my life and my practice in just two weeks." EM
"It will be the seventh or the eighth intensive workshop I do with you, I no longer remember the number, and each time you transmit so much to me, not only at the technical level in Ashtanga as teachers, but also and above all at the human level and friendship! It is sad to say goodbye after these two wonderful weeks…" GM
