monja śvec

Monja è nata nel 1986 a Novi Sad, in Serbia. Diversi anni di pratica e di studio dello yoga l'hanno portata a seguire un insegnante molto stimato Dragan Loncar, (Belgrado, Serbia), dove continua a migliorare il suo Hatha yoga, meditazione e pratica di Yoga Nidra in "Vidya yoga school", seguendo l'insegnamento di Swami Saraswati Satyananda (Bihar , India). Dopodiché, il suo percorso di vita la porta in nell'antica città di yoga di Rishikesh (India), dove completa il corso di Sattva Yoga direttamente dallo timato insegnante Anand Mehrotra. Lì viene introdotta nelle pratiche olistiche del kriya, del pranayama, delle asana, della libertà di movimento e della meditazione. Nel frattempo, Monja organizza workshop e corsi di yoga in Serbia e in Europa, dove i tirocinanti ottengono la conoscenza dei benefici del corpo orientale e delle pratiche spirituali. Monjia ha studiato inoltre a Delhi, in India, presso l'Istituto "Shri Kaya Kalp", dove diventa una certificata Ayurveda Beauty Therapist. Insegna Sattva Yoga al centro Sattva di Rishikesh, in India e pratica anche la guarigione intuitiva e reiki. Ha incluso l'esclusivo massaggio olistico per il lifting del viso alla sua pratica (DEVINI HOLISTIC FACE MASSAGE) che si diffonde in tutto il mondo grazie ai suoi incredibili risultati. Questo massaggio lascia profondi, naturali, effetti curativi sulla pelle del viso e del corpo (internamente ed esternamente), così come sulla mente e sullo spirito. Monja condurrà durante l’immersione “Alchemy of Rejuvination”, classi di yoga, meditazione e offrirà speciali trattamenti ayurvedici.
