I’m Ivana Jelincic – Atkinson, an international Yoga Educator, Systemic  Constellations Consultant and book author.
Throughout my personal journey and the experience of working with clients,  I have witnessed  how the integration of Yoga and Systemic Constellations, has shown to be a highly powerful and transformative method for self-development.
Thus, I am fully commited to helping clients achieve  inner balance and wellbeing, through better understanding of the connection between the body, emotions and the family system. 
For fifteen years now, I have been  working as an educator / consultant,  and sharing my knowledge with indiviudual clients, educational institutions and companies internationally throughout Europe, Asia & Latin America. 

My Background

Born in New Zealand, and of Croatian origin, my personal & professional journey extends across different countries around the world, including Canada, Portugal, Thailand, Indonesia, China and Chile.  I was introduced to yoga in my teens as part of my ballet & dance training , and have been exploring the mind-body connection ever since, as a student and teacher.

I am internationally certified in Yoga and Family & Progressive Constellations Therapy. In addition, prior to embarking the journey of yoga, wellness & systemic therapy ,I finished my studies  in Tourism & Hospitality Administration and EFL (English as a Foreign Language) teaching, as well as worked in these fields, respectively.

Fifteen years of teaching yoga, wellness consulting, coaching clients, leading retreats internationally, working for some of the most renowned wellness resorts and yoga retreat centers in Asia, and more recently, running my own yoga studio in Santiago de Chile, evolved into a self-development method I created and called Systemic Yoga.

Systemic Yoga combines Family Constellations, Progressive Constellations and Yoga, as way of tapping into unconscious patterns that cause chaos and suffering in one’s life, by subtly connecting  family dynamics, emotions and the body. 

In 2019, I published my book “Systemic Yoga- Four steps to overcome unconscious fear”, that is now available on Amazon.
