The Story

Kona in Sanskrit means angle. We grow in yoga because we take different angles and shapes during classes. And because we do so, stepping out of the yoga mat to the regular everyday life, we also change angles. How we see the world, how we communicate with others and most important the angle from which we see ourselves. Kona Yoga is a place for you to start or continue your journey. We are waiting to be your second home. 

On the small quiet street in Bratislava is located our bright and beautiful Kona Yoga Studio.

It is a place dedicated to yoga, meditation and wellbeing. 

Kona Yoga is one of the few English speaking yoga studios in Bratislava. Our goal is to bring yoga to as many people as possible.

In 2018 Jen Neruda started her yoga teaching journey in Nepal, Kathmandu. She wanted to learn more about this ancient practice and since then started to develop herself as a yoga teachers. With the help of her teachers Jen discovered techniques of Classical Hatha yoga in Himalayan tradition.

This approach is simple and accessible. It is concentrated on breath and movement, brings meditative and nourishing effects and leads you to a journey of self-transformation. We would like to share our knowledge with you and grow together.

In 2021 Jen and Pavol Neruda joined to create a space for everyone.  A space where you can feel at peace.

Ivana Slovakova

Gentle Flow

KONA-YOGA_Symbol_BonW.png

Ivana first attended a yoga lesson in 2020 during difficult times in her life. She was amazed with the power of this practice and what it did to her on an emotional level when she realized she had cried the whole lesson, yoga washing her pain away. She became addicted (in a good way :) of going inwards, enjoying silence thus being able to hear her innermost self.

 

She loves meditation and mindfulness in every way, from Yoga Nidra to Mindful Touch Therapy - a slow gentle massage technique that helps you feel every part of your body with a full awareness, which leads to a deep relaxation and meditative state of mind.

 

Love for a holistic view of a person led her to TCM studies in Prague where she´s been diving deeper into this practice.
