Who We Are & What We Believe In
Everyone is a yogi and yoga is for everyone! You’ve probably read this more than once, and we full-heartedly believe it’s true; this simple sentence describes everything we at We DU Yoga stand for. Our mission is to teach yoga in a way that is safe, inclusive, and accessible to everyone.
It doesn’t matter if you are a teenager or a senior, man or woman. You can be a complete beginner or practicing yoga all of your life.
It doesn’t matter if you haven’t been working out since your high school gym classes. You can be inflexible or hyper-flexible, strong or fragile, struggling to lose weight or gain a few kilos. Respecting your individuality and unique traits is at the heart of what we do.
WE DU YOGA STORY
The story of We DU Yoga started in 2010 when two sisters Dalia and Rhubin, who had separate careers in arts and movie productions, with absolutely no thoughts of becoming yoga teachers, ended up together on a teacher training in India. As Rhubin put it: “our mom talked us into it and after a while, we got hooked”.
They continued working on their yoga practice and did several other teacher training around the world dreaming about the day they will open their own yoga studio. However, since both of them had “normal” jobs, it took some time for their vision of the yoga studio to take form.
In 2015 they organized the first yoga retreat in Dubrovnik and found the perfect home for We DU Yoga studio, where it still stands today.

With a carrier of 20 years as a swimming coach Gordana brings a unique experience into her yoga classes. She is receptive to the differences in each body and able to communicate in a warm, supportive and motivating way with her groups. Everyone feels included and taken care of.
Gordana completed her teacher training back in 2010, in the Sivananda Ashram in Tyrol, Austria. This school thought her the approach to yoga she shares in her classes today. She has experimented with different styles but always comes back to the practice of Sivananda yoga. From her own experience she knows it is a method that keeps you happy, satisfied and healthy.
Andrej’s yoga journey began in 2013 when life ‘’accidentally’’ introduced him to Dharma yoga classes. He started a daily practice which ignited a lot of positive changes in his life and relationships. He felt his yoga practice will be a lifetime companion, hence a logical step was deepening his knowledge and attending a teacher training course.
In 2015 he enrolled a RYT 200 hr teacher training course in Divya yoga school in Zagreb under the guidance of Sandra Petra Pintarić (Dharma Yoga) and Petra Carmichael (Ashtanga yoga). In 2017 he continued his education on the RYT 500hr TTC under the guidance of Sandra Petra Pintarić.
