THE NATURAL WAY TO A SRESS-FREE LIFE
Stress is not caused by what happened to us, but by the way we accept it and how quickly we can let it go. We have a problem with stress if we cannot let go.
5 YOGIC APPROACHES TO DEAL WITH STRESS
1. Mindfulness meditation
Meditation is the time when we stop and calm down, look inside ourselves and become aware of our “inner atmosphere”.
2. Faster letting go through the body
The body knows how to release the chemistry of stress that it produces in a healthy way so we have to trust it.
3. Re-programming stress
In yoga asanas, we put our body in a position that signals danger to the nervous system, but we have now consciously entered that stressful situation and we breathe deeply.
4. Relaxing breath
Our optimal daily functioning takes place in the action of the parasympathetic nervous system, when the breath is deep and calm.
5. We are not alone feeling stressed
Stress is not a problem of the individual person, but the culture that we live in, which presents unhealthy ideals and expectations. Read the blog…
INTERVIEW FOR LJEPOTA&ZDRAVLJE MAGAZINE
What was your path to yoga like and how did you start to practice yoga?
The first contact with yoga had an extremely deep impact on me because I felt great strength and openness in my body, which helped me to cope with daily challenges more easily. I felt from my experience that thoughts and emotions are connected to physical states – that the mind and the body really are inseparable.
What is the lesson you have learned during your work with people?
We are all very different and any prejudice about somebody is a waste of time. We cannot know what someone came with, what hurts them and what they carry inside. Condemning, and thus gossiping, is not at all constructive. Read on blog…
The symbolism of the Lotus flower is that it grows from the mud and when it penetrates above the surface of the water it blossoms into exceptional beauty. That beauty is the potential while we are still in the “mud” we just need to find a way to grow, and yoga is definitely a very good way.
What is yoga?
Body positions are triggers for emotional and mental states – sometimes they are difficult and we begin to think that we cannot bear it, sometimes they are pleasant and we think that they will never pass. With yoga, we seek balance and alertness to immediately know that all feelings are transitory. The practice of body movements and postures with the breath helps us develop useful qualities such as maintaining stable attention, the center of gravity in our body, peace and composure… Yoga prepares us for the challenges that life brings every day.
We consider yoga a complete discipline, because through our own experience we see how the body affects the mind and vice versa, we see how all systems constantly communicate with each other.
According to yogic philosophy, this teaching is the right of every human being, because it contains knowledge about the truth of our nature and the return of health within us. The path of yoga is slow and gradually changes us, by understanding ourselves we develop patience for others and remain mindful with the challenges that life brings. True transformation comes from love and joy, not guilt and rigidity. Read more…

WORDS OF PARTICIPANTS
Super ti ide! Svaka cast! Bas me veseli vidjeti kako si postala pravi pedagog! Jos uvijek imam sjecanje nasih prvih satova u Palmoticevoj, koji su bili divni... no od onda si stvarno došla na jednu sasvim novu razinu. :) Bas se veselim vjezbati s tobom.
Hej Tena, Puno ti hvala što si našla vremena za odgovoriti i za svu mudrost i suosjećanje pri pisanju. Inače se to baš osjeti kod tebe, pri tvojim satovima i podučavanju, to je baš lijepo.
Draga Tena, evo da se javim sa par riječi... Vježbam svaki dan, najčešće ujutro... Nađem vremena i za meditaciju. Nakon ovih skoro mjesec dana osjećam velike promjene u tijelu, kako fizičke, ali prvenstveno psihičke. Pozitivno djelujete na mene, sa svojim porukama i imam osjećaj da se konačno vraćam doma. Veselim se našem druženju
Draga Tena, Nakon odrađenog tvog sata od srijede, po treci put :), imam ti potrebu reći da su mi prekrasni tvoji satovi, način vođenja, objašnjavanja, započinjanja i završavanja. U ovo zoom doba cini mi se da može biti ljudski cuti neki feedback, pogotovo kad je od srca. Uživam u svakom satu, i nekako doživljavam svaku asanu kao prisjećanje vise nego učenje. Zanimljivo bas.
Upravo smo odvježbali! Divan je sat! Hvala ti puno što si nas se sjetila :))) Evo mamu si opet satrla i ganula.
Draga Tena, Odvježbam kad god stignem, teme su mi sjajne i često puta mi bude žao kad nešto propustim, ali ne stignem sve.. Puno mi znači vježbanje, baš budem smirena cijeli dan, ili bar veći dio dana, i manje se derem na djecu Sve što napraviš mi je korisno. Primjećujem veliki napredak na tijelu... Puno pozdrava

It is wonderful to see the atmosphere created in a yoga class where we are all welcome with exactly what we carry inside us. Everyone will use their body to express the movement in a different way and they cannot make a mistake because that is exactly how it is supposed to be.
