Eye to Eye/Auf Augenhöhe

I am sitting down on the dandelion-spotted lawn in the warm spring sunshine. Feeling restless, worrying too much about nothing. After a few minutes I notice a bee on top of the flower next to me. I lay down to get a closer look. Now I am eye to eye with the busy insect. Only…

Smells like Freedom/So riecht die Freiheit

„Freedom – there are so many songs about it. Something like freedom was for animals. That had nothing to do with me. Or so I thought. […] But suddenly I was free too. Right in this very moment. Everything smelled free. The free night, the free moon, the free grass and the free sky.“ –…

Moments Matter / Momentaufnahmen

When I take my son to school we walk along this stream. He still holds my hand. Or I am holding his, depends how you look at it. He usually talks a lot. Some mornings we are both quiet. Today we were laughing about something all the way. Last week we heard a woodpecker, but…

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…

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

Sometimes I trip over my mind and suddenly I am ahead of myself. In these rare moments my mind can be a quiet place. I can sit somewhere, just being, just breathing. Listening to my heart beat. The city noise around me. Others talking in the shadows just steps away from me. A door opens,…

Change is in the air

My one and only face reflected multiple times in a life-sized kaleidoscope… from a yogic perspective I find it fascinating that I have just the one face but fill out all these different roles. I am not sure how much of my inside going-ons are really being reflected on my expression but no matter how…
