True yoga is not about the shape of your body, but the shape of your life.

Uncategorized
Were you ever a person who thought that you couldn’t do yoga or didn't want to start yoga until you lost a bit of weight?

These replies are usually in response to what is being portrayed as Yoga in the general media, which is generally being able to stand on your hands or its being able to contort your body into very complicated but beautiful shapes.

How Yoga helps me to balance my life.

Uncategorized
My yoga journey started a bit more than half a year ago. As I came home from a 6 months trip to Europe, I was entering slowly in a “dolce far niente” mood. I felt my mood was shifting from being positive towards indifference. And don’t think that I reach the stage of Holy Indifference. It was just pure indifference towards anything that surrounds me, my body also started feeling really weak. One day though, as I was browsing on Instagram, I saw a post of a friend of mine who is a teacher in a yoga studio. The next day I was already equipped for the yoga session. When we met, she was surprised, as she gets a lot of inquiries from friends, but few actually join. It was an…

How yoga helps balance our life.

Uncategorized
So many times we go through a day and have so much chattering going on in our mind. We worry about family, friends, work. We worry about conversations we had, words we regretted saying, or wish we had said. We worry about the future, about what tomorrow will bring.It all feels pretty overwhelming and we wish we could hit “pause” just for a slight moment, just to finally take a breath. But what if we could actually do it? Stop for a moment? Not suspend time, but suspend ourselves? It is a practice of consciously dedicating time for our wellbeing. It can start by simply breathing in and out and noticing how we feel in that moment. Noticing the sound of our breathe or if it’s cool or warm. Sounds…

A Gift of Time

Uncategorized
It’s times like this, when the world as a whole is suffering, that the real practice of yoga takes place. To put it simply, yoga means unity and the one truth at the heart of our existence is that all is one. Everything that is happening outside of us is a reflection of our own individual inner worlds. There is no separation. Humanity, as a collective, is suffering together. Yet, at the same time we have been separated, isolated. We can see this as a reflection of how we are all still divided, living as though we are separate from one another. This time is a blessing, an opportunity to go within ourselves and do the inner work that needs to be done. It’s a time of self-reflection and creativity.…
