YOGA TEACHERS

RHUBIN HERCEG

Rhubin pours her artistic energy onto the mat and into sequences that help her center and draw from an inner well of inspiration that lead to creations in the field of illustration, photography, fashion and other arts. In her classes she works towards achieving the same effect within the group, helping people tap into their creative powers.

Her path as a teacher started with a trip to India where she spent time deepening her asana, pranayama and meditation practice and studying yoga philosophy. She completed her 200 hr yoga teacher training at the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Ashram in 2010.

After a few years of teaching at a studio in Dubrovnik she encountered the Ashtanga Vinyasa System, and immediately felt an intense pull to the practice. It didn’t take long for her to pack up, fly to India and surrender herself to the guidance of Rolf and Marci Naujokat. In 2013 she completed the advanced teacher training at Kranti Yoga in Goa and is now a 500 RYT Yoga Alliance accredited teacher. She regularly continues to further her practice with KPJAYI authorized teachers Kirsten Berg and Mitchell Gold. Rhubin also completed a 40hour teacher training with David Swenson in 2016 and continues to further her knowledge by attending workshops with authorised teachers like David Robson.


DALIA HERCEG

Dalia is an open minded, warm hearted yogi who looks at the student and tailors the teaching to his possibilities and needs, finding ways to integrate yoga into their everyday life, and helping them keep the passion and joy of practice, appreciating whenever one finds the time and peace to spend on the mat.

Her own experience with having to adjust and modify her practice due to an arm injury from childhood, has led to applying the values of tolerance, acceptance and perseverance to her teachings.

She strongly believes that the obstacles one encounters in life and on the mat are true opportunities to learn and develop a deeper understanding of the worlds that lie within us. Dalia started her yoga path during her life in India, where she also completed her teacher trainings, the first in 2010 at the Shivananda Yoga Ashram in Kerala, and the Advanced Ashtanga Vinyasa training in Goa, 2013. She keeps furthering her experiences in classes and workshops in Asia and Europe with international teachers as Rolf and Marci Naojukat, Kirsten Berg and Mitchel Gold. In 2016 she completed a 40hour teacher training with David Swenson, and furthers her knowledge during workshops held by authorised teachers like David Robson.


MIRNA PETRIĆ

Mirna actively practices yoga since 2006. Since then she attended different workshops with foreign teachers like Sean Corn, Peter Brajdić Mitidieri, Bruno Bartulich etc.

After graduating at the Faculty of Architecture, 2012 she completed the 200RYT teacher training at Divya Yoga school in Zagreb under the guidance of Petra Carmichael and Sandra Petra Pintaric. She started to work as a teacher at the same studio and completed the Art of Living course by Surdashan Krya-e that year.

Since then she continues attending workshops with Yiannis Andritsos, a Dharma yoga teacher and Dharma Mittras close disciple, while the workshop with Mark Kan, Dharma Mittras student and founder of Dharma Yoga in London, was the reason she decided to devote herself deeper to the practice of Dharma yoga.

In 2013 Mirna moves back to Dubrovnik where she continues teaching Dharma Yoga. In 2014 she hosted Mark Khan who held a Dharma Yoga Master Class in Dubrovnik and 2015 she furthers her education in New York on a E-500 RYT Dharma Mittra teacher training for-Dharma II and III level.
