Nuša has always wanted to change the world for the better, which is why she decided to study journalism. But after several years of journalistic work, she realized that it did not allow her the desired creativity and contribution to society. She decided to find another way.
Her path led her abroad: she worked as a flight attendant for the Emirates airline for two years, later she lived in Canada. On her way, she was always accompanied by yoga, which she started practicing in 2012, when she was mainly looking for a way to calm her mind. For her, yoga is a spiritual practice from the very beginning and much more than just physical exercise.
After periods of more or less regular practice, in 2016 she decided to go to India for three months and learn as much as possible about yoga there. This trip truly changed her life. Not only did she complete two yoga teacher training courses, but she also found her passion and her purpose in life: to live and teach yoga.
She realized that by teaching yoga she can actually contribute, have an effect, improve, help - change the world for the better.
Nusa's teaching goes beyond the physical positions, as yoga allows us to get to know and understand ourselves better, develop our potential and become the best possible version of ourselves.
Nuša believes that balance is key: in yoga and in life. We live in a world of extremes, we are constantly busy and live in a "flight or fight" response, we do not take time for ourselves and rest. Nuša does not believe in fighting one extreme with another. That's why we work on finding balance in yoga classes. Balance between exercises for flexibility and strength, between more dynamic and more static exercises, between physical and spiritual aspects of yoga.
Nusa's yoga classes are always themed, the topics are very practical, yet spiritual, intended to make us think about ourselves and explore our own depths. It encourages you to get to know yourself through yoga postures. And very important: to have fun doing it! 🙂
Nuša is an internationally certified RYT400 yoga teacher and the founder of Nush Yoga Shala. She is in love with the ocean and traveling. Her yoga classes are also like the ocean: dynamic, intense and deep.
What kind of yoga does she teach
Modern postural yoga, as we know it in the Western world, has little to do with the ancient, millennia-old yoga. The postures practiced in yoga classes are only a good 100 years old or less.
In reality, yoga is the science of life, it offers instructions on how to develop personally, how to reduce unnecessary suffering, get to know yourself better, get in touch with yourself, overcome mental delusions, and become a better version of yourself. It teaches you to find balance, it shows you your connection with nature, other people and all living beings. It gives you the tools to overcome obstacles, develop your potential and grow personally.
Of course, we can do all this through practicing yoga postures and, in addition, take care of our body and health. So yoga is a perfect exercise for body and mind!
However, Nusa's perception and teaching of yoga has changed significantly in recent years. From following a "tradition" because someone said so, she began to question herself, delve deeper into this practice and expand her horizons and knowledge.
Today, she no longer blindly follows routine yoga movements, because she knows that no long-term repetition of the same movements is okay. She is constantly improving her knowledge with the best teachers in the world who deal with the human body and movement. Sh then connects safe movement and performing asanas with the essence of yoga, with concepts from yogic philosophy, which she tries to present in a practical, universally applicable and understandable way.
She is always looking for the best ways to make her classes training for life - both psychologically and physically, yoga has to be FUNCTIONAL. The purpose of everything we learn in yoga classes is that we can use it even when we are not on the yoga mat and improve our quality of life on all levels.
