- Novi Sad, Serbia
Monja Švec was born in 1986 in Novi Sad, Serbia. Since childhood, she has been interested in India and everything this cradle of self-realization means, and after the introduction to “Autobiography of a Yogi“ book by Paramahansa Yogananda, she knew that this eastern learning path would be her life direction. A few years of learning and practicing yoga brought her to Dragan Lončar, a highly acclaimed guru (Belgrade, Serbia), where she continues to perfect Hatha yoga, meditation and Yoga Nidra in “Vidya yoga school“, following the teachings of Swami Saraswati Satyananda (Bihar, India). After that, her life path brings her to an ancient yogi town of Rishikesh (India), where she completes the Sattva yoga course lead by the eminent and highly appraised guru Anand Mehrotra. There she gets introduced to the holistic practices of Kriya yoga, pranayama, asanas, free movement and meditation. In the meantime, Monja organizes workshops and yoga classes in Serbia and Europe, where trainees obtain the knowledge about the benefits of the eastern body and spirit practices.
She included the unique holistic face-lifting massage to her practice (ANADI HOLISTIC FACE MASSAGE) which spreads throughout the world due to its incredible results. This massage leaves deep, natural, healing effects on face and body skin (internally and externally), and mind and spirit, too.
She uses every free moment to visit India and organize yoga classes, and to upgrade her gained knowledge with new experiences.
