Yoga and God

There are many misconceptions about yoga out there. Coming from a Christian background I know that many people have prejudices and questions about yoga. I hope to answer here a few of them. Yoga is not a religion. First of all yoga does not worship a specific God. It is not a religion. The goal…

The new era – a first comment

PMS – when the princess becomes the witch

If you’re female – this post is written for you! Because I wish someone would have shared this with me years ago! If you’re male – please stay and read on! I also wish that men develop more understanding why we sometimes seem to come from another planet. I would say I behave like a…

The power of positivity

I have been processing a lot of information lately and educated myself by different sources. But most importantly I tuned in with Spirit. Sat down in stillness. Listened.

The beauty of yoga

You breathe and you move, you follow the postures … and you’re connected. To your body and the breath. Spirituality in a nutshell. You breathe and you are present with each moment.

Spirituality is a luxury

I’m not sure what upsets me more – the panic promoting posts regarding coro virus or the “I’m on another planet & this has nothing to do with me” posts from my spiritual friends. I guess I like the cynic memes best to be honest. It makes me think that spirituality is a luxury. I’m…

Spirituality – what it is not

In New Zealand – Aotearoa we have this wonderful festival culture during summer time. Conscious festivals where people gather and enjoy workshops and music, mostly without drugs and alcohol. It’s beautiful and a big step forward: showing that we can dance and enjoy life without substance abuse. I’m proud of New Zealand’s conscious community. However…

Are we not all introverts?

Have you ever reflected on your balance in life between externalizing your energy and being internal? Does your job require you to give energy out constantly? What about your relationships? I believe we all need time when we turn inward and are with ourselves. In Yoga, the Niyama that talks about “Tapas” is one of…

I’ve been living a vegan lifestyle now for over two years. It’s one of the best things I’ve ever done to my body, together with a regular yoga practice. It’s a true pleasure to see how my body thrives on this diet. Particularly in the first weeks after changing my diet I had outburst of…

Zero waste.

Zero waste. Sounds great and some people prove that it is actually doable. My facebook wall is full of posts that display how much the earth suffers from our waste, our endless consumption and greed. It’s so sad. But where to start to make an impact? I honestly think we need all possible efforts! For…
