This is probably the most exciting news I’ll ever share! ⠀⠀ Our little family of two is growing and we expect a baby boy in December ♡ ♡ ♡ We are beyond delighted, grateful and in awe of this little miracle unfolding. It has been quite a journey so far… from first nervous guesses on a Sunday with no pregnancy tests available due to stores being closed, to finding out while Yaron was still on a family visit in Colombia, to intense weeks of constant sickness accompanied by emotional rollercoaster rides to a – so far – very calm and content second trimester. From what I learned, it is lovely to connect to other peoples experiences when the first baby is due so I`ll share our baby stories here in a little more detail for those of you who are interested in following this journey. Much love from the three of us ♡ Advertisements
Finally this baby has gone online! Check out my new webpage and let me know what you think ♡ One wouldn’t believe how much work goes into a webpage, even the most simple ones. There’s the texts, the picture material, the general idea for the look you want to create and then of course the design itself – a job I could never do but admire deeply. There’s still some minor changes and additions in the pipeline but I already love it! http://www.marahsantos.com
Hello lovelies ♡ Starting on Monday, May 20, I will teaching a weekly open class at the beautiful studio Patrick Broome Yoga Schwabing: Mondays, from 7:30 – 8:30 am.

Yoga & Soundbath ♡ Find Your True North ⠀⠀ In this very special workshop I will guide you through a practice that will have you explore your outer and inner worlds – especially with regard to the year that just passed and your visions for this next cycle. We will tap into our hopes for this year 2019, laying the foundation to manifest and let go according to our heart’s desires. Honoring the deep water element of winter, we will combine an active Vinyasa Yoga practice with Yin Yoga, through movement and stillness. Balance energy in a liberating flow for hips and lower back, exploring the edges of effort. Then completely let go and surrender into the longer holds and deep meditative release of Yin Yoga, a practice that stimulates connective tissues and nourishes joints. Janine, a gifted musician from California, will join us on this journey with her hauntingly beautiful sound bath tunes. ⠀⠀ All levels of Yoga are welcome; experience with Yinyasa Flow Yoga suggested. Saturday, April 13 • 2:30-5:00 pm • Patrick Broome Lehel …

I made a new Yoga playlist and its perfect for the winter season! I often practice to these tunes at home, starting with a strong flow, peaking in a somewhat challenging pose like an arm balance or inversion to then dedicate the rest of my practice to a slow, smooth opening of tight muscles, ligaments and tissue. The sweet combination of Yang and Yin. Just what you need to bring some heat into cold winter days. Enjoy ♡ Playlist Winter
