Ashtanga Yoga & Mindfulness with David Robson and Jelena Vesić




COVID UPDATE: This event is postponed to October 2022.


Registration with more program details will open soon!

A primary objective of the practice of Ashtanga Yoga is to bring about greater awareness of the body-mind-spirit connection. The 'tristhana' method of breath, 'drishti' and posture, along with the set sequence of asanas and use of bandhas offer a potent framework for practicing with deep concentration and coordination to bring about such awareness. If practiced correctly, our the time on (and off the mat) becomes a practice of mindfulness. 

If you are a teacher wanting to dive deeper into the tradition and philosophy of Ashtanga Yoga, or a practitioner interested in advancing your practice you should definetely join David Robson, a KPJAYI Level 2 Authorized Teacher, and Jelena Vesić for this very rich 2 week study in Zagreb, Croatia!

"It was two weeks full of learning, heart opening and gratitude...I feel so grateful to have met teachers who are more than teachers, and a community which makes me believe that there are good people spread around the world, trying to make themselves better. 
In this two-week intensive I felt completely immerged in my yoga practice. The kindness and wisdom of David Robson is so inspiring, and the devotion, strength and open heart of Jelena Vesic empowers me and other women." LL

So the two week Intensive with David Robson and Jelena Vesic is over. I am so grateful for all the knoweldge I got from them. So grateful that they showed me that something I thought as impossible was very much attainable and within reach. They as teachers give you their all in a unpretentious yet very profound way. A true inspiration. IJ


"So this morning during Mysore class I did my first stand up from drop-back, and then I did it again and again.. This is barely a physical achievement for me, it's rather a mental one. For the first time in my life I felt the energy and the need to stand up for myself, to believe in me despite the thoughts, which tried to bring me down. It wasn't a fight with the gravity, it was to make peace with myself, to ask forgiveness for every time I put myself down, for every time I buried my feelings just to please others. Thank you Jelena and David,my teachers, for believing in me and giving me the trust!"

"For the third year in a row these two beautiful souls, amazing teachers and ashtangis, Jelena and David, visited Zagreb. Today our two week Ashtanga intensive is over. I learned a lot, sweated a lot, laughed a lot, and enjoyed immensely. Thank you Jelena and David" IJ

A week of movement, stillness, introspection, connection, ecstatic dance, kirtan, energy healing, aqua therapy, sauna parties, scrubs, sunrises and sunsets over the ocean, cacao & coconuts, silly jokes, laughter and tears, and forever-connections.
