All our teachers are highly trained and have years of experience with practice and teaching of body&mind techniques.
Daša Lakner, BAc (Dram.)., Head of Agniyoga Centre, yoga teacher
Her life is full of movement and yoga is for her more than just physical practice but also a spiritual path.
Her primary field was dancing, which she had encountered as a child at the Ljubljana Ballet School; she then spent the next 15 years combining ballet, interpretive dance, and other contemporary dance techniques. She studied dramaturgy and was working in theater and & new-media art as producer, artist and performer. However, all her activities have been more and more influenced by yoga, in which she found the means and the way through life.
She has been an International Yoga Federation (IYF)-approved “RYS SuryaSakti Yoga Teacher” since 2004 (the first generation of students from the amazing teacher Jana Colonna) and registered by American Yoga Alliance as an experienced yoga teacher E-RYT 200. In 2007, she completed the training for Pilates Instructor (Stott Pilates method).
She is the head & heart of Agniyoga Center (opened in 2009) and Agniyoga School in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
She has been learning yoga both in Slovenia and abroad, at renowned Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga (David Williams, Michael Gannon, David Swenson, Petra Carmichael), Free Flow Vinyasa Yoga (Seane Corn, Gabriela Bozic- Jivamukti yoga), and Iyengar Yoga (Michela Franci) workshops. And this are only some of the teachers along her path that have inspired her and towards which she feels great gratitude and respect.
She is aware that we keep learning for all our lives, so she continues study and is happy to pass her knowledge to others. Om Shanti
Katra Kodela, BSc (Psych.)., movement teacher (Franklin method®), Cranio-Sacral & Tuina therapist
Her interest in the individual as a psycho-physical whole draws her in various directions: towards observation and analysis on one hand and towards action and expression through movement on the other. In her school days, she was an active athlete, competing in sports dancing. She studied karate in high school, only to later return to dancing, this time to contemporary dance, and to theatre, which she is still doing today. As a dancer, she experienced the meaning of a healthy connection to one’s body and of its functionally healthy use. She learned about anatomy and biomechanics at the Franklin Method Institute®, where she completed a 3-year course (2005–2008). In 2007, she became a Pilates Instructor (Stott Pilates). Her free time is spent actively as well: she is a skier, swimmer, ice skater, yoga practitioner, fire juggler, and also loves taiji.
She still studies regularly: at the Franklin Summit Berlin for instructors (2007), Hawkins&Franklin methods (Vienna, 2008), Taiji Shan (Ljubljana, 2009), Qigong workshop (Ljubljana, 2009), Franklin Refreshing for instructors (Dusseldorf, 2009), Body&Mind Convention (Zagreb, 2009), Taijiquan and Qigong workshop (Poreč, 2009).
Manja Lošdorfer Božič, yoga teacher
Interest in relationship between body and mind drove her deeper, in exploring her own body and spirit. When she came across ki-aikido years ago and met yoga not long after, both became her regular practice, alongside intensive study of medicine. Yoga took her over with its possibilities of exploring deeper human nature as an interdependence of mind, body and spirit. From extensive yoga tradition she draws inspiration for living with a peaceful mind and in harmony.
In year 2011/2012 she attended Agniyoga school Yoga Teacher Training under the guidance of Daša Lakner. With joy and playfulness she also likes to discover movement and relationships at acro yoga practice.
