Mein Yoga

Yogalehrerin BDY/EYU Kinderyogalehrerin Postpartum Doula Yoga Pränatal & Postnatal Seit mehr als 15 Jahren begleitet mich Yoga auf meinem Lebensweg. Anfangs wollte ich nur meine Rückenschmerzen von der Schreibtischarbeit loswerden. Doch über die Jahre kehrte ich immer wieder auf die Matte zurück.

Do more of what makes you happy: Remember joy

I know this guy… his name and his song have followed me now for many years. He used to teach at the Yogapod in North Vancouver, my old yoga digs. The studio has closed down because of the „condomization“ of North Vancouver (read: tear down any building you can, build condos, sell for as much…

There and back again… Part 2

It has only been a week. So much has happened… once again. I have traveled 70 miles, enjoyed the beautiful rolling hills and made new friends. I truly needed this time for myself. The hectic months had left me struggling for air. Things felt like they were unraveling. I found out that cleansing techniques and…

Day 7: Back on track… almost

If I have learned one thing this week, it would be this… changing eating habits while being stressed and out of town is, well, was in my case unsuccessful. I didn’t go full out. A couple of slices of cheese here, a cup of coffee there, a glass of wine to round it all off…
