Founder and tour guide of Bon Adventure
Traveling has been my favourite hobby ever since I was little. 9 years ago I participated in an international project where I had to host people from all over the world. We rented bikes and went to discover Riga. I couldn’t tell my guests a lot – except adore beautiful architecture together with them. This event made me realise that I live in a unique city and country. I seriously think that by being born in this country we have won the lottery.
I’ve been working in the tourism industry for 9 years as a professional tour guide and a tour planner.
Introducing people with this magical place – Latvia – is my passion. It gives me so much joy to meet amazing people and give the best experience possible. Only by giving, you are able to receive more than you already have!
I am an author of Latvian jewellery brand “Savdaba”, a lover of natural treasures and an explorer of the mystery behind crystals. I have been fascinated by the stones since I was a little kid. Initially pebbles and seashells formed my sandbox collection but later on in life, I developed my own collection of gemstones and semi-precious stones, which I have incorporated in various interiors and handmade jewellery.
I am a certified yoga teacher from Riga, Latvia. The yoga style that fascinated me the most is the Vinyasa Yoga, also called Flow Yoga, which involves dynamic and static postures aligned with breath. For me personally, yoga is a never-ending journey. There is always something new to learn and experience, and yoga also changes me every single day- my body and mind is never the same afterwards. This never-ending flow is the greatest gift I have ever received, and I must learn to accept it and enjoy the ride.
I do believe that self-awareness and any type of body movement is the best way to find a path back to myself and experience inner peace.
So, my dear friend, it is going to be a wonderful journey for you as well, come and join me at the yoga class by the Baltic sea.
Baltu Rotas (Baltic jewelry)
CO-PARTNERSHIP FOR WORKSHOP
One ring to rule them all
The family business Baltu rotas was born out of excitement and pride more than 25 years ago!
The incredibly rich heritage of the archaeological adornments of the Baltic nations captivated and appealed to so many.
With a touch of design, ancient symbols have evolved into modern jewelry, embarking the trend of wearing it on any occasion.
The northern nature and legends has inspired us to create new collections. Our company has grown, but still all of our jewelry is made here – in Latvia, our beautiful city Sigulda.
