Head of Agniyoga Studio, yoga teacher
Love. Joy. Yoga.
Daša has a 20 years long yoga practice behind her that combined with contemporary dance. She has been teaching yoga since 2004. She is a renowned experienced yoga teacher, E-RYT 500, founder of the Agniyoga studio & yoga teacher school (basic & advanced yoga teacher training) in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
Her classes and workshops are filled with her love for exploring the body, mind & spirit. Her distinctive style of yoga is based on years of experience – connecting breath and movement, good structural alignment of the body with fluidity of movement. She is leaning on the yogic tradition, but being brave enough to know what works and what doesn’t. In her teaching there will be always a thread of philosophy, mantras and meditation skilfully balanced with a asana & pranayama practice. As a teacher she creates a supportive space for people to become present and cultivate love and kindness towards themselves and others.
She has done numerous yoga trainings in Europe & India and she also competed yoga teacher training with Manju Jois and an advanced yoga teacher training with Ana Forrest who is a big influence to her.
In a parallel life she works as a dramaturg or performer. Oh, and she is a cat lover. And vegan. And wife and mama.
She is registered by American Yoga Alliance as an experienced yoga teacher E-RYT 500.
She is aware that we keep learning and growing for all our lives. Her life was full of movement and dance from early on. She studied dramaturgy and was working in theatre and & new-media arts as a producer, artist and performer. All her activities have been more and more influenced by yoga, in which she found the means and a spiritual way through life. She has done various yoga intensives, workshops and teacher trainings with renowned yoga masters around the world: Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga (David Williams, Michael Gannon, David Swenson, Petra Carmichael, Govinda Kai), Vinyasa Yoga (Sandra Petra Pintarić – Dharma yoga, Seane Corn, Gabriela Bozic & Patric Broom – Jivamukti yoga). 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 deepening her understanding of yoga through her own practice and enjoys passing her knowledge to others. Om Shanti

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 theatre, and to contemporary dance, which she is still doing today, mainly as a teacher. 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) and in 2012 licensed Pilates Coach by Slovenian Fitness Alliance. Currently she teaches groups and individuals in franklin and pilates methods, leads workshops on healthy, pain-free movement, lectures on conferences (1st and 2nd Conference of Dance Medicine in Slovenia), teaches anatomy for future Yoga instructors and gives therapeutic bodywork and massage.
Her free time is spent actively as well: she is a yoga practitioner, fire juggler, taiji and qi gong practitioner, likes knitting and crocheting, reading, spending time by the sea, going to concerts, dancing, socializing at dinners and walking her two cats.

Yoga entered here life at a point when she was facing big changes and heavy decisions. At first yoga provided her with calmness at those challenging times, but she quickly felt and discovered much more in yoga. Yoga has completely transformed her and her life. For her, asana practice is a way to find a true connection with yourself, to find inner peace and happiness. She finished Agniyoga school teacher training in 2015 and has since completely dedicated her life to yoga, both teaching and constantly gaining new knowledge.
Ever since she was a child, movement has always been a big part of her life. At the age of four she started dancing and graduated in arts high school, contemporary dance. That was when she first came into contact with yoga. In a very stressful time in her life she quickly discovered that practicing yoga was the only time she felt peaceful. Yoga showed her how to have a healthy relationship with herself and completely changed her way of life. After many years of practice she finished teacher training in Agniyoga school. She is still learning (currently she is finishing yoga therapy training). Daily yoga practice and meditation is her way of life. She believes we all have the ability to live a peaceful and happy life, so she is grateful to be able to share her knowledge and experiences with others.
If someone told her years ago that she’ll once be a yoga teacher, she wouldn’t believe it. For her, yoga was like love on first sight, something that was always missing from her life on physical as well as psychological level. She works as a designer, is a self-emloyed cultural worker. Yoga is her main tool for overcoming stress and achieving better quality of living. She is deepening her knowledge of yoga by attending numerous workshops and courses – for her, yoga is like life – a never ending process of learning. On her classes she strives to share her practise and knowledge and to progress with her students.
She finished a 200 hour teacher training course in Agniyoga school in 2012.
