Matea Zajec began her yoga journey at a young age, practicing bhakti-yoga, meditation, and asana. When she was a child, she suffered from various illnesses, until her mother found Ayurveda and she was quickly cured. That turned Matea, and her mother Adriana, towards a new path, and her mother became an Ayurvedic specialist, and later a doctor. Matea assisted her mother in her healing center from a young age.

In college, Matea lived in an ashram, rising early for meditation and practicing Seva, or selfless service, while studying ancient yogic texts and theology books. She graduated with a degree in Eastern Religions and Philosophy, and has been teaching yoga history, Bhagavad-Gita and Yoga Sutras in teacher trainings for years.
