Your body is made for physical movement. It has evolved to move in many different ways and it should do so with complete freedom.
Vanja Moves programs are designed to make you strong, mobile and resilient, so that you can perform without limitations and feel bulletproof – every day.
Obsessed about movement and the power of the mind, I believe that each person has so much untapped physical and mental potential that they don’t even realise what they are capable of. I utilise movement and mindset techniques to facilitate this potential.
My happiest moments occur when spending time in nature with my dog Marley and sharing my love for movement with others.
I take my role as a teacher and student very seriously and strive every day to be an example to myself and those around me.
Vanja is more than a trainer. She is a coach, athlete, and a walking example of what being a master of your craft entails. After some procrastinating I asked Vanja to train me in an effort to get lean, and increase muscle mass. From the very first training session, I knew that this would not be a walk in the park. This was not a social engagement to chat about my week, or any general chit chat. The mission was clear, and the agenda was rock solid. Vanja had developed a program that catered to my goals, and to my experience.
Throughout the 12 weeks, Vanja could see what my limits were, and adjusted the program accordingly. Training five times a week, with three sessions with Vanja was the optimal cadence to achieve my goals of losing eight kilograms.
It must be stated that for anyone considering being coached by Vanja she expects dedication and commitment. There are very few coaches that can alter people’s mindset as Vanja does, and this is what makes her coaching so powerful. With thousands of hours of training under her belt Vanja is an evangelist of her craft, and it only takes a few minutes to review her photos and videos to realise that she is a world class athlete and coach.
I have had back and hip pain for the past 5 years due to a sports injury. I have been to multiple physios, but nothing has helped as much as working with Vanja. I have strengthened my core and improved my range of motion, especially in my hips. The training is always fun and challenging and despite having played sports my whole life, I have never done such movement based focused workouts. It has been a huge benefit to my normal training program.
I started training with Vanja 3 months ago and I absolutely love it. What I love most is that it is a different kind of training from all the ones I tried before. There is such a big focus on improving not only your strength, but also your mobility and function. I never knew that you could challenge your body in so many ways. I have seen so much results in only 3 months.
After training at a regular gym for 2 decades I was pretty stale with my training and not really improving. The sessions with Vanja are really enjoyable and under their guidance I’ve noticed significant improvements in my flexibility, strength and body fat %.
There is a really positive vibe in the sessions and I couldn’t recommend it higher for anyone who wants to invigorate themselves and their training.
I met Vanja a few years ago, as I arrived in Sydney, while looking to continue my movement practice (I used to train with the Ido portal team in Israel). Being a self defence practitioner, a boxer, a fighter and a lover of calisthenics and everything movement related I both understand the importance of having intelligent movement practices to keep the body mobile, agile and healthy and at the same time need intelligent movement to help heal and recover from the many injuries and misalignments I carry. Through the years of moving and training with Vanja I found a person who is a fountain of knowledge, always knowing where to direct the practice in the most efficient way, but also someone who inspires you through action and embodying what they preach. I feel that training with Vanja kept me in a fighting shape, helped me get rid of the many aches and pains I carry, and supported in prolonging my career as a Krav Maga instructor.
Outside of the practice and training I find Vanja to be a great person and friend, and I enjoy our time together – whether in practice or outside of it. For anyone that wants to feel better, look better and connect to their own humanity better, I highly recommend training with Vanja!
Training with Vanja changed my life. She has helped me overcome a big limitation I had in my left knee after an ACL reconstruction a few years ago. Training with her gave me the chance to improve my body mobility and opened up so many possibilities that I never had before when I used to do acrobatics. Her knowledge and passion gave me confidence; and what I love the most is that I never felt I couldn’t do it, because she believed in me… so I did as well. Now I feel I’m limitless!
Every time I train with Vanja, it’s like a breath of fresh air to my training.
She really knows her stuff and will challenge you, pushing you to your limits.
The exercises are always innovative, as they train you to work on muscles you never knew existed and body positions you would never think of.
For anyone looking for a challenge and a different type of training, I highly recommend Vanja Moves.
After hearing about my problem of imbalanced hips and tightness in lower back due to poor working from home set up, Vanja said “say no more”. With 3 simple stretching that she gave me, I was able to feel relief the same day, and I’ve been doing them 5 minutes every day since. I’m feeling great now.
