I fell in love with Italian cuisine in 1987 when I got my first summer job in Florence as a private chef for countess Emo. It was simple cooking for the teenage me, and the excitement was major. I decided to attend University in the country of gastronomy and graduated in literature and languages.

Of course, when I wasn’t studying English literature, I was in the kitchen enhancing my natural  Italian cooking skills.

Following my passion for food, I founded a catering company, mainly for film production teams in Croatia, preparing meals for hungry actors and crew, like on the Game of Thrones.

Working for the Makronova Association, I learnt about healthy living and embraced it. This started my yoga practice, and I fell in love with yoga on and off the mat. 

Yoga Hrvatska brings together my passion for Dalmatia, my inherent desire for healthy food and living and my devotion to yoga practice.
