Tanja Paar was born and raised in Croatia, a small and beautiful European country. Her spiritual search started in early childhood; through books, reading, and contemplating life. That search led her to yoga, meditation, and later on to Vedic astrology, also known as Jyotish, which has been her greatest passion and love in life.
By education, she is an electrical engineer with over 20 years of working experience in the fields of information technology, banking, and project management. Due to her inclination to work with people, she has been serving as an English teacher in the United Arab Emirates and Spain for the last five years.
She started studying classical Parashara Jyotish in 2007 with Croatian teacher Adrian Kezele. After that she continued studying online with her dear Jyotish and Hatha yoga teacher from Uruguay, Krishna Darshan, who helped her to prepare for her first certification. In 2010, she was certified at the basic Level 1 through the American College of Vedic Astrology (ACVA). Since then, she has continued her studies with several other teachers, as well as on her own, developing her potential in terms of technical knowledge of Jyotish, and also diving deeper into her natural intuitive powers.
In 2010, Tanja was also certified as a Hatha Yoga teacher through the Sivananda lineage in Grass Valley, California. Meditation and spiritual practice are a mandatory part of her daily routine. She is a vegetarian and deeply believes in the yogic principle of ahimsa—non-violence towards animals and all sentient beings on Earth.
