Do more of what makes you happy… Part 2

… and sometimes, all you need is some really good chocolate cake. To be exact, a decadent slice with a marzipan chocolate creme icing on top complete with cookie crumble and a cup of „Happy“ tea. It worked… my mood lifted the moment I stepped out onto the pavement in front of the cafè, where…

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 got myself a job

Well actually, I get to keep my current job. Today I signed my contract. And I am so excited! I realized a few weeks ago, when it became apparent that my temporary contract would turn permanent, that it has been 12 years since I signed on for my last permanent job. And while I enjoyed…

Day 45: Yoga on through

I actually had to check my calendar to find out where I am at. Well, I passed the 40 days. The result? Five days on, weekends off. My alarm is still set for 5:45 am and most mornings I have 45 minutes before my son stumbles in. I enjoy my quiet mornings, even though my…

The intense practice, beautiful mantras, no chitter chatter in my mind at last. One mantra after the other keeps humming in my mind instead. Yogapod, the studio where I used to practice…

Day 3: Consistency

Over the last ten years or so the intensity of my yoga practice has varied greatly. I have always found it too challenging to keep up with both „extremes“… a truly consistent (read: regular) practice and none at all… However, I have always come back to yoga. Being pulled back onto my mat has been…

Yoga in my bedroom

Have I mentioned that I have now taken to practicing in my cosy bedroom? Yes, it is still messy and not nearly as Om as I would like, but I can close the door behind me and actually practice in the evening. Last week I finally checked out Eoin Finn’s podcasts. He is a surfer…
