First Trimester

READY FOR PREGNANCY Ever since I can remember I saw myself as a mother and thought I was going to be a young mum. My mum had myself in her early twenties and I loved being raised and constantly surrounded by people under 30 when growing up. Plus, I have four siblings and changed diapers with three of them so being with small children comes naturally to me. Yet, my twenties passed quickly with travelling and enjoying life to the fullest and having a child was certainly not on my agenda. When I had just turned 30 I met the man whom I am now married to. Yaron and I started a pretty serious relationship right from the beginning but with him being a Colombian living in the US and me being German we had to sort out our living situation first which took almost five years. After trying different scenarios and home bases we finally decided to settle in Munich two years ago. It was just by the end of 2018 that we started …

Webpage Launch

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

Yoga & Sound Bath

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 …

Workshop: Yoga Basic

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 …
