Zenyoga is a special form of yoga aligned with the practice of Chan, because of this, it is called meditation in movement. It is the oldest school of yoga in Croatia and has been practiced and taught for over forty years! In Zenyoga we try to balance and get the three aspects of our being in order – body, breath, and mind. Zenyoga firstly affects the body by developing endurance, flexibility, relaxation, strength, balance and by improving the flow of vital energy through the body. Secondly, it affects our breath because learning proper breathing techniques and balancing our breathing with our movement helps us change the quality of our breath, which directly affects the state of our body and mind, bringing us straight into the experience of the present moment.
Workshop BA DUA JIN - a healing sequence of movements in the practice of Zen yoga
In our regular Zen yoga sessions, we often practice a series of eight simple movements inherited from Chinese tradition, known as the Eight Pieces of Brocade. Brocade, translated as the finest Chinese silk, is an ancient exercise that, by focusing on specific energy channels (meridians), organs, and systems in the body, positively affects immunity, vitality, and the overall well-being of the entire organism. It is especially important to practice them in colder seasons when we are more susceptible to colds. Brocade has a long and rich tradition and history, and today there is diversity in its execution.
Discover why this sequence is so special, how to perform it correctly, how it influences energy flows in the body, and in what ways it enhances our health and overall well-being. Learn why millions of people practice it daily in the East and the West at this workshop!
The workshop is suitable for both beginners and advanced practitioners and for those who have not encountered the practice of yoga before. At the end of the workshop, each participant will receive written instructions on how to practice at home.
Join us from 09:00 am to 1:00 pm at Klementa Crnčića Street 18, Zagreb.

The workshop fee is €50, and your registration (reservation for the workshop) is confirmed by a non-refundable payment of €30 (payment instructions will be sent via email).
