Antonia is a visionary and a founder of the Bodyflow Retreat Center.
From an early childhood on, interest in movement has been Antonia’s passion.She has graduated at The University of Kinesiology. During her university years she had been a professional rower. The motivating university environment has introduced her to the world of fitness.
In 2005 she had started to teach different fitness programs which has made Antonia experienced in working with athletes and people who are in the process of rehabilitation.
The first discipline she had deeply fallen in love with was pilates and nothing has changed since. She still teaches it and practices it with huge dedication and love.
In pursuit of new knowledge and personal development she has evolved deep connection to spirituality and its ties to a physical body. The life path has steered her to the Indian studies which involve different yoga styles: vinyasa flow, ashtanga, prana flow…
The natural course of things has lead her to soon become a Vinyasa flow teacher, as well as an E-RYT200. Since then, she has been passionately dedicated to the creation of a platform whose sole purpose is to enable people to truly understand their bodily structure and function, as well as to find the purpose on their path and to explore what they have to give to the world.
The cornerstone of the platform is BODYFLOW pilates&yoga studio which has been established in Split in 2012. Antonia is not only the owner and the founder of BODYFLOW pilates & yoga studio, but she also teaches and organizes public classes and workshops as well as Bodyflow Yoga Teacher Training. Her devotion and love for what she does has been recognized by other yoga enthusiasts- Antonia`s students and fellow yoga teachers. The best of them have become the valuable members of BODYFLOW teacher team.
The desire to present yoga as a self- appreciation practice meant for the well-being of every person has led Antonia to found Yoga Retreat Center as an extension of her work at BODYFLOW studio. Yoga Retreat Center provides welcoming atmosphere for the experienced yogis as well as those who are new to the practice. The aim of the Yoga Retreat Center is to expand yoga community and strenghten the bonds between its members.
Antonia`s classes are a fluid blend of the experiences gathered during her educational process and her own natural instinct. She is grateful for her training. She is grateful for the numerous guides on her path. She is grateful for the practice.
