Yogateacher and Yoga Program during the Retreat:
Lea Lončar came in contact with yoga in the 80ies and it was mostly about spiritual journey of self-discovery. Her Yoga study included various yoga styles and traditions (Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Integral, Sivananda, Tibetan (Lu Jong) and Therapeutic yoga), mainly in India, USA, and Europe. She studied with yogis such as Swami Satchidananda, Swami Ramananda, K. Pattabhi Jois and his family, Tulku Lobsang Rimpoche, Doug Swenson, to name a few. Her approach to yoga is influenced by Buddhist Vipassana meditation, Kashmir Shaivism, modern research in neuroscience and psychology and vegan culture. Lea is a founder of the Scandinavian yoga centre „Zenit Yoga“ in Trondheim, Norway and has been working on yoga research for decades. At the moment she is writing a PhD on trauma at Norwegian University of Science and Technology, NTNU.
