Workshop Series

Workshop Series: Hips, Back & Shoulders In this three part workshop series we will be looking at those areas in the body that often feel tight or at times even painful: the hips, the back and the shoulders. Dynamic strengthening creates stability in the body and gentle stretches soften tensions – both elements at play in our yoga practice foster well-being and health in our body as well as our mind. Part I: Happy Hips In this workshop we will take a look at the biggest joint in the human body: the hips. Being the joint between out lower and upper body, the hips directly affect our spine and especially the lower back. Influenced by our way of life these areas feels often very tight which affects us not only physically, but also mentally: the hips are known to store unprocessed experiences as “body memories”, which often causes tensions and restrictions of movement in the body. We will take a short excursion into the anatomy of the hips before exploring the body in a Vinyasa Flow …

A dream come true!

I have aways wanted to grow my practice and teaching so that one day I would change perspective from being a student in a Yoga Teacher Training to being a mentor. I had no structured plan for this to happen, just a vision but as always when we set our mind and intentions onto something, it sooner or later materializes.

Teaching yoga is my calling and …

The Unexpected Is Sometimes The Best.

Sometimes all it takes is diving into the unexpected. Our apartment was going to be occupied during the weekend because we were thinking that we would spend the weekend at my grandmothers house. Only – all of a sudden – we weren`t . My grandmother, who always received all of our big family, friends and even friends friends warmly in her big house, a hot soup on the stove and fresh flowers on the bedside tables, wasn`t feeling up to it. Shortly before turning 90 in February, she found herself week and anxious, something we all ascribed to the ‘big day’ but has never left her fully since. Being thrown back to the little girl I intuitively become towards her, I refused to acknowledge this new situation and the possibility of her being anything but happy with us coming didn`t even occur to me until she found the courage to tell me herself. So here we were, with no travel at hand, an empty bank account and in need of a place to stay. As …
