My journey down the path of healing arts started in 1995 when I discovered meditation and macrobiotic philosophy. Along the way, I attended many healing courses, yoga and vedic studies, and learned a lot about aromatherapy, herbalism, massage and energy work. After I finished my studies at the University of Political Science in Zagreb, Croatia, I continued my work as a journalist for a daily newspaper and as a free-lance reporter for many magazines. For the last 15 years I used my knowledge to combine spiritual ways in my busy corporate lifestyle. After 15 stressfull but successful years in journalism I was ready to achieve a spiritual balance and bring more quality in my Life. Life & Love brought me to America. Here I finished Ayurvedic education at California College of Ayurveda. It is my pleasure to go along with you on Your Path of balancing body, mind and soul.
