Yogaboka Studio

Yogaboka Studio is located in a tranquil and private setting on the edge of a lush green Mediterranean mountain forest. A breathtaking sea and mountain view from our Yoga platform is to enjoy during the practice. With the favourite times being sunrise and sunset.
The studio can be reached from the main road by our 100 steps "fitness" staircase which is a perfect warm up before the class ;-)
Though our space can fit in up to 20 - 25 people, we use it to a full capacity only during workshops and special programs. We believe an ideal yoga group shouldn't be bigger than 7-10 people, so everyone gets full attention and alignment in a regular class.
In case you don't have your own yoga mat we will provide one, as well as a seating cushion, yoga brick and other props.

In winter period Yogaboka team coordinates Auromode Yoga Space studio in Auroville, India.
Auroville is an international township project, founded in 1968 and supported by UNESCO. Yogaboka team is a member of Auroville International, representing Auroville in Montenegro.
We also represent Yoga Alliance International and certify yoga teachers and schools here in Montenegro.

Founder of Yogaboka, Yoga and Meditation Teacher
Max has been practicing different forms of yoga for most of his life. He first got to know Eastern martial arts, philosophy and practices in his youth in the mid-1980s, then experimented with Meditation and inner Qigong in the 1990s. But the real yoga knowledge and competence came later - when he has studied with accomplished Indian Masters and Schools including Sri Vagish Shastri (Varanasi); Swami Veda Bharati and Swami Ritavan at SRSG (Himalayan Yoga Tradition, Rishikesh); Dr. Madhavan (Vivekananda Institute of Yogatherapy); Swami Vidyananda (Transformational Yoga). During those many years of studying genuine yoga in India, he received direct transmissions and initiations in Shakta sampradaya lineage as well as Himalayan Tradition. Has completed various TTC and holds a Master of Hatha Yoga (500hrs+) and a Grand Master of Meditation, authorization to conduct and certify 200hrs Yoga Teacher Trainings.
After deliberately leaving behind a successful career in media and publishing in 2010 (with the top achievement - CEO of a high profile international media company with upmarket media brands and 100+ employees), Max has concentrated fully on teaching Hatha, Kriya and Raja Yoga. His approach is based on authentic traditional knowledge and synthesis, while keeping techniques simple, effective and accessible for many. Besides that, he lectures on different aspects of Classical Yoga and Tantra Philosophy, conducts Yoga Nidra, Meditation sessions, teaches Tao Yoga (rooted in Qigong and Tai Chi), as well as provides a range of extended workshops and Yoga Retreats.
In the recent past Max has started up, developed and led a large international yoga & wellness center Auromode Yoga Space, Auroville, India, where he also taught regular classes and held in-depth workshops and intensives. Being a member of Auroville International, he represents Auroville in Montenegro.
Since 2015 Max Pranic has been running Yogaboka studio in Kotor Bay, Montenegro, where he is a Head Teacher. He also teaches regular yoga classes, special master-classes and does private yoga training at PMYC Sports Club, Porto Montenegro and at One&Only, Porto Novi.
Yoga Teacher
Sonja Vojvodic, born in Bosnia, started her yoga journey at the age of 15 by reading yoga books and doing asanas every morning. In Montenegro, where she grew up, there were no yoga teachers at that time. After meeting and studying with her first teacher in Croatia (2013), Sonja became very inspired to visit India. When she finished Music Academy (flute) this wish came true! She has studied in Dharamsala (Indian Himalayas) with Omshankar Yogi, made her 200 hrs Hatha Yoga TTC and after that never stopped learning. Sonja believes that for every yoga teacher it is important to keep being a student too, so she continues to study different yoga styles with different teachers. Hatha yoga, Ashtanga, Kundalini, Yin, Iyengar yoga - each one has its own wisdom and unique approach but the essence is the same.
Besides yoga and music, she has experience in Reiki (1st & 2nd Degree), meditation (3 Vipassana meditation courses), sound healing, oriental dance, freediving and healthy plant based food-making and diet.
At Yogaboka, she offers 2 different types of classes- Hatha Flow Yoga is more energizing and active, and Yin Yoga - more calm, meditative practice where we move less but feel more!
Beginners, intermediate students - English speaking and locals - all are welcome!

Yoga Teacher
Ezgi is a yoga teacher specializing in Hatha, Hot and Yin Yoga. She has been practicing since 2010 and her first yoga experience was Bikram. She keeps exploring yoga deeper, evolving and learning. That's what she says about her practice during these years: "It was totally life changing experience, I turned into seeing other perspectives, understanding the nature of life and to see the wonders of life by disabling the ego".
What she focuses in her classes is what people are ready for and what they need in their yoga experience. Ezgi believes that every human body is able to practice yoga when giving the right techniques and showing patience. She invites students in a class to get rid of distractions at least for an hour, flowing in asanas with right breathing, observing and feeling changes around the body while holding the postures . The point of her teaching is taking benefits of yoga for body and mind, but also creating awareness, so we can understand the importance of a clear vision.
At Ezgi's Yin classes you will find your limits with the help of yoga pillows and straps, while holding the postures will recover your fascia tissue. Your Prana or Chi energy will start to flow naturally.
At hot yoga classes you will understand the importance of concentration and patience. You will learn the human body unlimitless nature in a safe way.
