“My love for movement has led me to the Body technique, a unique exercise with which I not only keep myself in better shape, but it seems to me that I am becoming a better person day by day. I love the feeling that, following their progress, I am helping my exercisers. The trust they show me is the greatest reward for all my efforts.
I can say with certainty that it is definitely much more than just a way of exercising, it is a philosophy that changes my view of body and life on a daily basis, and then everyone around me. I love that kind of life :) ”
Barbara Tavčar (org. Manager), was born on November 21, 1979. in Kranj, and has always lived for sports. She became acquainted with top sports in her early childhood - she trained skiing for five years, and after that she was attracted to dancing. She gained eight years of experience in high school and during her studies leading group exercises as an aerobics instructor. When she realized that most of the existing recreational activities are losing their basic goal, and the goal is a better psychophysical condition of the users, she looked for a new path. She came into contact with Ana-Marija and the Body technique when, due to her growing interest in Pilates, she decided to get an education. The knowledge and expertise that Ana-Marija shares with her selflessness, therapeutic technique that meets all criteria of health fitness, continuous education, and advancement of Body technique instructors, were decisive factors on the basis of which Barbara opened the first PBS Centre franchise in Slovenia in 2004. Since then, she is considered the founder of the Body technique in Slovenia. In 2005, she began training for the title of Master Body instructor. The title gives her the right and professional qualifications to educate the next generations of Body instructors. She conducts trainings in PBS Centres of Sports Excellence in Kranj and Zagreb.

“Thirteen years have passed since the first contact with the Body technique. Discovering, learning about the human body, movement, mind, soul and the power of the hidden universe that each being carries within, develops and manifests in a unique way through its posture, movement, and emotions - this is the Body technique, its philosophy and method of exercise brought to me personally and much more to all to whom I convey it in my work. I am grateful for the moment of the decision to leave my business journey to her. It is more of a whole life's wonderful and exciting journey that always rediscovers and brings experiences and knowledge that are ahead of today's time, allows that time at work is not work but a challenge, passion, and joy."
Morena is a nurse by profession. From an early age, she shared her love for the health profession with her passion for dance, which she actively practiced and taught in Pula and Pazin. In 1995, she discovered the world of fitness, which connected all her interests with her love of the body, exercise and health care. After twelve years of experience and training as a fitness trainer, in 2004 she opened the Sunset Center in Pula.
Due to changing trends in recreational exercise programs, the primary goal of recreational activity, which is to improve and preserve health, is often neglected or completely lost. Therefore, Morena's meeting with Ana-Marija Jagodić Rukavina and Body technique was a real discovery. The combination of knowledge, exercise techniques that affects all levels of health fitness, creativity and the need for continuous training of body instructors, initiated the opening of the PBS Centre of Sports Excellence in Pula in 2007.
