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…

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…

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…

This is it… This was it…

It is done. I held my first yoga class as a teacher this Monday. Oh I was so nervous. My heart beat was right there in my throat while I was trying to chant an OM that did not reveal how I felt… I made it. No big blanks. No injured students that had to…

The sun is peeking through the leaves overhead. I can feel the fall air on my skin. The voices of other people in the park are dropping away, blending into the background. I am early for my yoga class. A rare occurrence. I had the day off and thought it would be a mad dash…

Where it all startet II

Everything in life comes full circle. Nothing new there. I have been struggling with acceptance lately and suddenly… flash… I stopped holding on. My mind cleared. We were cleaning house today. Such a relief to tackle some of that clutter. I so needed that. Then I picked up one of my yoga books, I forgot…

I am going places!

My very own ruby slippers. I truly believe that this is what Dorothy would have worn today instead of high heels on that brick road. But nevermind. Halleluja, I got new shoes. Since I discarded my old ones last falls, I have been meaning to replace them. I also dusted off my hiking boots a…

I really ought to…

This is where I go when I feel the need to let go of „stuff“. I focus on whatever thought has been circling around in my head driving me crazy. Then I make a conscious decision to let go. I take a rock and throw it as far as I can. When the physical sensation…
