Ich habe mir heute mal Zeit genommen

Zwischen Yoga unterrichten und zu Hause alles liegengebliebene zu erledigen, habe ich mir heute mal Zeit genommen. Ich bin eingekehrt – Kaffee, Mittag & etwas Zeit für mich. Die Sonne schien durchs Fenster herein und wärmte meinen Rücken. Ich konnte den blauen Himmel sehen… Meine Morgenkurse liefen gut. Die Zufriedenheit hallte in mir nach. Jemand…

Do more of what makes you happy: Draw some monsters

My son told me the other day that he likes the robots I draw. I do not know whether I ever drew robots as a child. Or monsters. Or mandalas. Now I do. And I am enjoying it tremendously. There is quite a lot of drawing going on in our house. My husband is an…

Heart Wide Open

This week I am finishing off some of my classes at the studio I have been teaching at since spring. Starting January I am venturing out and offering two of my own courses. However, I wanted to do something special in my last classes and suggested to take them through a guided meditation. I love…

A Moment in Time: November 5th at 6:56 PM; Gruenowski, Jena

Do more of what makes you happy: Hug a tree!

I love trees. These living things have always fascinated me. The different shapes, sizes and personalities they display. One of my favorite trees is the Ginkgo tree, also known as maidenhair tree, which I just found out. The leaves turn a beautiful yellow in fall. There happen to be quite a few Ginkgo trees around…

One step out of the door

Yesterday we dropped off our seven year old son together with his best buddy for his first summer camp. One whole week away from home. When we left, he was kneeling on the floor getting all his Lego out. Totally absorbed in playing. He seemed happy enough. Me – that was another story. I felt…

Do more of what makes you happy… Make a list!

Make a list of things that make you happy Make a list of things you do every day Compare the lists – Adjust accordingly I read this on a Facebook post the other day. And for obvious reasons I love it. I went on this beautiful but slightly long hike (37.5 km, that works out…
