Živa Olup

SLINGS Myofascial Training Practitioner
YOGA Teacher

Welcome. Thank you for visiting my page.

My name is Živa. I'm fearless and full of life. I love new challenges and I love exploring the world; the world inside of me and the one we live in. Always searching for new scientific discoveries about the human body. In recent years, I have been researching the bonds between the body and the mind and dedicating my time to studying, learning, experimenting, and drawing knowledge from books and experience.

I am still a wild and free spirit at heart but lately I have been turning inwards, discovering the potential inside of my soul. I never give up. I often surprise myself with what I can do. And if I can do it, so can you. I am here to guide and encourage you to go further, to surpass your expectations, to go beyond. I want to teach you how to love your body, to get in touch with your feelings and sensations and to feel great in your body.

I believe that a good teacher is a knowledgeable one. But knowledge alone is not enough. Therefore I combine knowledge with intuition, a lot of heart and empathy.
