My little girl is mad at me again. For the past few months she has been on a mission to figure out how to spy on me and then scare me. I don’t know what it is about children that creeping up on people is a skill they want to desperately acquire. Does it come from the movies and watching superheroes or is it something that is innate in human nature?

To me breathing had always been one of the things that our body just does automatically. And I was glad about that, because my traumatic past left me with no desire to pay attention to my body whatsoever. That is, until I decided to partake in a yoga teacher training. During the training I started... Continue Reading →
I believe that yoga has many benefits for the body and mind. Throughout my personal practice and teachings, I also realized that there is no better way to analyze our habits than observing our thoughts during a regular yoga class. You see, the thing is that the way we show up in one area of... Continue Reading →
Have you ever noticed how when you go to a party and mingle or talk with friends or coworkers there is always the person, who with glowing eyes tells you about all the things they plan on doing. They are so enthusiastic about the project they will start or the awesome experience they will have... Continue Reading →
Don’t we all wish we could proudly exclaim that we are the sole owner of our lives? I mean in the end, we are the ones, who will die our own death. Nobody is going to be able to do that for us. So why then would we not also own the life we live?... Continue Reading →
