Nina Vukas

I am a certified experienced yoga teacher and a registered Prenatal yoga teacher  (ERYT 500, RPYT). Yoga has inspired my life's journey for most part of my adult life and has been my calling for a decade now. 

The journey started in 1998. when I was 21 and have moved to London to study. A dear friend introduced me to Ashtanga yoga (he said it will ground me as I was all over the place back than:) and my fist teacher Gingi Lee who later inspired me to become a teacher. Ashtanga became my daily practice and a big part of my life. I also practiced with Hamish Hendry, who was than one of a few certified Ashtanga teachers in Europe. I stayed in London for four years.

Soon after leaving London I followed my heart (and a man:) and moved to the USA where I continued practicing Ashtanga and further explored different yoga styles like Vinyasa flow, Power yoga, Anusara, Viniyoga, Forrest yoga and Yogic Arts… I often say I was like a kid in the candy store – there were so many teachers and styles to choose from, especially in California. I attended workshops, yoga conferences and teacher trainings with teachers like David Swenson, Shiva Rea, Baron Baptiste, Brian Kest, Ana Forrest, Duncan Wong, Seane Corn, Gary Kraftsaw and many others.
In 2005 I moved to Miami and finished a 200 hour teacher training in "Miami yoga shala". I continued my education trough different workshops and teacher trainings and discovered that Vinyasa flow is practice that my body and soul felt most connected to. 

I met my Vinyasa teacher Shiva Rea at Omega conference and fell in love with her Prana flow system. I enrolled in 300 hour Prana flow teacher training and later even got to assist Shiva in teacher trainings which was such a great learning experience.  

In 2006. I moved back to Zagreb and founded Sangha yoga studio where, with great love and joy I teach today. I teach weekly classes, hold workshops, teacher trainings and have over the years brought many great yoga names, mostly my teachers and friends to Zagreb.

Apart from Sangha I hold workshops nationally and internationally and lead retreats on beautiful locations in Croatia and other beautiful destinations like Bali or India. 
I have developed my own Vinyasa flow method and sequences I call ‘The art of flow’ based upon many years of practice, studies and teaching, and this is what I mostly teach today.

I have two Vinyasa flow DVD’s that will soon be available in English (for now only Croatian) and am in the process of writing a book on ‘The art of flow’ that is due to be published in Spring 2015.

Recently I have joined Supersoul yoga ‘’a platform to support and connect talented yoga teachers, curious travelers, foodies, artists, doers, thinkers, and share their knowledge with others.’’, so you can also connect with me trough Supersoul. 

I am also a photographer, graphic designer and a free spirit, passionate traveler, truth seeker and a believer in magic. I believe in practicing compassion, tolerance and living from the heart. We are all so different and on a different part of our life's journey and we should all respect, support and cherish these differences.
