A short note about me and the NEW Bikram yoga studio in Rudnik/Ljubljana

When nature created humans, nature knew that the only way this organism can function at its fullest potential, was when we use the body as an instrument and a tool, which we calibrate routinely to its finest tune, and functionality, physically and mentally. It is not hard to spot the people in the street who are living a harmonious life. You can feel their energy; you can see it in their posture, the way they walk, in their face, the way they speak, and you can see it in their eyes. They seem happy, healthy, energized and well grounded. What are they doing that is different?

However, nature can also create difficulties in human life. These difficulties can present them self in many different shapes and forms, physically and/or mentally. Some have been with us since the day we were born, while others were created during our life-time. Some of these difficulties are: Depression, Stress, Anxiety, Back pain, Degenerative Disc Disease, Scoliosis, Digestion problems, Arthritis, Rheumatism, Osteoporosis, Inflammation, Gout, Tendinitis, etc., just to name a few. When the body and the mind do not function the way it was intended it does, life can become a burden, and being the best version of our self an impossible task.

Bikram Joga and Wellness Ljubljana is a new, state of the art joga studio in Slovenia. The owner, Denis Dronjic, was born in Ljubljana, but lived most of his life in Canada. Denis realized there was no Bikram joga studio in Ljubljana and decided, after many years of travelling and teaching joga around the world, to return to his birth country to reconnect with his roots, and introduce a joga practice he is passionate about, and believes could change anyone’s life for the better.

Bikram Joga comes from India and was first introduced in USA in the early 1970’s. The Joga sequence is practiced by millions of people around the world. It is a sequence of 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises, designed for a beginner who has no past experience with joga.

Bikram Joga is practiced in a heated room for 90 minutes. It is one of the greatest inventions for the human body and the mind. The sequence of 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises is designed to work the entire body, inside and out. Every muscle, tendon, ligament, joint, organ, tissue, and system of the body receives positive benefit during class. The Joga is a scientific prescription for a happy and a healthy life. If a person repeats the 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises routinely, they start to create homeostasis (harmony) within the body which supports wellbeing and happiness. Students leave the class feeling more energized, happy, and a sense of wellbeing. It doesn’t matter your age, sex, or current physical condition, the joga will create positive change which is natural to the body, mind and spirit. Everybody you know will be able to see it; they will tell you look good, much younger, and that you are glowing.

“Yoga maintains youth long. It keeps the body full of vitality, immune to diseases, even at old, old age. The Yogi never becomes old.” ~Bishnu Ghosh~

Denis also like to share his story of recovery through Bikram Joga, which he has shared with thousands of students around the world. It was only 9 years ago, after a horrific motorcycle crash, Denis nearly lost his leg and the ability to walk again. The injuries to his body were big. The medical community was doubtful he would ever recover fully. Denis knew this was the biggest challenge in his life. Thankfully he was familiar with Bikram joga. Not long after he learned to walk again, Denis returned back to a joga studio in Toronto Canada, on his crutches. For the next 2 years he practiced joga daily. At one point, he even practiced twice a day for 9 weeks. It was during this time, Denis was able to run again. The medical community couldn’t believe his recovery. You hear him say in class, “healing begins by believing and positive attitude.”

Bikram Joga and Wellness in Ljubljana is open every day, Monday to Sunday. The state of the art studio was designed and built with creativity and lots of love. You can feel the energy the moment you walk through the door. The joga community is growing fast! At the studio you will find a chill-out area where you can listen to music, play instruments, drink tea before or after class, enjoy a good book, or chit-chat with friends. The change rooms are equipped with showers and bathroom facilities. However, the joga room is like no other. It is an open space with mirrors, plants, Himalayan singing bowls, a beautiful painting that measures 5 meters in length, and a natural bamboo floor perfect for grounding and feeling at home. The windows face west, with a beautiful sunset and an orange glow in the studio. Denis really did create a space which relaxes, heals and re-energizes the body mind and soul.

Denis’ mission is to serve as many people as he possibly can in his life. He looks forward to meeting you in class and guiding you through your yoga practice.
