Tamara Kleva

Yoga Teacher

For Tamara, Yoga represents the encounter and reconciliation with her inner self. This was the first and the most significant gift she has received from Yoga and naturally, she felt the need to share it with others. Thus, began her path of teaching and sharing knowledge.
Tamara taught Yoga in Germany, Greece, Spain, Malta and China. Currently, she works as a teacher and manager of her own Ashtanga Yoga studio in Rijeka, where she offers teacher trainings and educates wonderful young Yoga teachers.
Even though she teaches various styles of Yoga, she is an advocate of an individual approach, according to the concept – your body, your yoga.

Tomislav Tarana Gabrić

Kirtan singer and lecturer

From an early age, Tarana expressed an interest in spirituality and music. His journey of self-exploration began when he turned 13 and already at the age of 16, he lived in a Hindu temple as a monk. After that period, Tarana felt the urge to go to India and continue his education in the field of Yoga psychology, philosophy, and Yoga music.
Upon his return in 2010., he joined the Yoga is Music project and started organizing numerous Mantra music events in the region. With the release of the “Love in action” album, everything started to change. Performances and Mantras have become virtually known around the world, resulting with 20 million views of the Maha Mantra on youtube. After that, he started traveling all over the world and became a world-renowned performer of Kirtan.
Tarana also leads self-development and psychology workshops such as Energetic Anatomy, Intuitive Singing, 4 Levels of Existence, Regression Therapy etc.
In his own words: “I would say I only share what I love and what ennobles me as a human being. It is a joy to convey a part of that enthusiasm and depth, to witness how it transforms people, either by the power of feeling and teaching through song or by the insight of understanding. Somewhere in us, between worries, questions, advices and media, lives our intuition, our true ‘inner voice’ that we can hear to the extent that we give it our attention.”
