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


Bikram yoga and Wellness Ljubljana is a new, state of the art yoga 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 yoga studio in Ljubljana and decided, after many years of travelling and teaching yoga around the world, to return to his birth country to reconnect with his roots, and introduce a yoga practice he is passionate about, and believes could change anyone’s life for the better.

Bikram yoga comes from India and was first introduced in USA in the early 1970’s. The yoga 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 yoga.

Bikram yoga 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 yoga 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 yoga 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 yoga, 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 yoga. Not long after he learned to walk again, Denis returned back to a yoga studio in Toronto Canada, on his crutches. For the next 2 years he practiced yoga 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 yoga 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 yoga 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 yoga 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. He looks forward to meeting you in class and guiding you through your yoga practice.
