Coaching you to balance and happiness
Why & for whom
This website is for those who believe in better future, for those who dare to believe life can be easy and fun, and who are fighting for the rest of us in their every day work.
The entrepreneurs, the hard workers, those who want change, and know there is a better version of life out there for them.
I am here to facilitate your progress by teaching you balance. The more balance you have the stronger your light can shine. As Wayne Dyer said: One of the 9 laws of manifesting is to be at peace with oneself.
My journey to discovering my authentic self was catapulted by quitting my job, of a diplomat for Croatian Foreign Service in Jakarta, and moving to Bali.
I worked very hard to become a diplomat - in public service for 8 years, earned a scholarship for a MA in European Integration in Warsaw and tolled daily for a low salary, believing in my success.
Even though i worked so hard to become a diplomat and get appointed a mission, i just couldn't do it anymore.
Because my inner values and the surrounding reality of my job were at such a clash that i had to quit.
Being a Croatian diplomat in Jakarta was equal to a good expat package, paid luxury accommodation, a driver, an envious social status with plenty of parties and affluent friends and a paid plane ticket home.
The pain and resistance in my body towards my job - was just too strong to ignore it. This was as school example of the shift that Wayne Dyer explains in his book "From ambition to meaning". When we stop chasing the external goals, goals set by society and start following the inner voice, the inner drive.
I have been passionate my entire life about personal development and spirituality, and over the course of my life I studied evolutionary astrology and got certified in techniques of Reiki and Theta Healing, and Neuro-linguistic programming. I love nature and trekking and spending time outdoors.
I have been living on Bali for the past 4 years and the experience has supported my deep personal transformation and enabled me to look deeper into healing techniques supported by community of friends that share the same passion.
In 2013 I created Gekko Retreats, a company specializing in wellness tourism on Bali, as manifestation of my passion to support individuals in personal growth. In Gekko Retreats we provide logistical support for organizing retreats to coaches, therapists in western and alternative healing.
Now, in 2016, i felt the calling to step into my own light and coach and teach individuals on their personal development journey.
My passion is to support those looking to start a healthier lifestyle and introduce changes in everyday habits to achieve happiness and fulfillment in all areas of your life.

"I am amazed at the results I've had after just one session with Iva! We did an NLP Swish technique to transmute one of my limiting beliefs and I have to say that I felt different immediately after the session and the belief feels completely gone even some time has passed since our meeting. Not only that I don't feel limited anymore, but I'm actually excited about doing the things that I felt blocked about before! Big thanks to Iva! It's been really transformational and I totally recommend trying this out, as it works!"
I would recommend Iva as the personal trainer and coach to anyone who cares about their personal development. In just a few Skype sessions, she explained me her program and approach and based on our conversations made an analysis and custom action plan. I followed her suggestions on the daily basis and was sending her reports about my progress. Iva’s program truly helped me improve my time-management skills, gain more emotional stability and control and to better organize my schedule by freeing more focus, energy and time for the things I love to do, things that make me happy. Before working with her, I would work erratically jumping from subject to subject which was unconsciously adding to my anxiety. Iva helped me solve these problems and the process of working and communicating with her was easy and fun. I am grateful to Iva for her expertise and honest support and can’t wait to work with her again!
