Embracing Community: Confessions of a (Very) Independent Yogini

Yellow leaves shivered in the chilly autumn breeze. Mountains that had been sheared flat millennia ago by glaciers were dusted this morning with fresh snow. The world outside was going through its yearly cycle of letting go and preparing for winter. In just a few months winds would whip over the island at over 200 kilometers an hour and temperatures would drop to below 30 Celsius.

But for now, fourteen people sat in a circle in a toasty yoga studio watching the leaves fall outside, sharing why each of us chose to come to Dagmar and Daniel’s yoga retreat in northern Iceland in late September. Not Costa Rica or Bali. Not any warm weather beach locale. No, we chose to come to Iceland in the fall.

A Yogi’s Guide To Prague

dagmar-spremberg-yogis-guide-prague-oldtown

Prague has been on my list for years and I love to finally be here! Of course I did some research to find good things a yogi’s heart desires and hope you will enjoy my little personal yogi’s guide to Prague!

Prague is very laid back and easy to discover and explore. It is also really cheap to take taxis, public transport and to eat well and healthy. I spend 4 days here and it’s a good amount of time to explore the city. I also traveled alone and felt absolutely safe and at ease walking around day and night.

5 Ways To Stay Healthy While You Travel

I have been on the road now for over 3 months and I love to make an effort to stay healthy when I travel. My journey started in Costa Rica and brought me to Switzerland, Spain, Germany and now Prague. As much as I enjoy to be on the road and see something new, I feel that my body can get out of balance if I don’t pay attention to keep it well nourished. And that’s the challenge when on the road, as I am sure you have also experienced many times. So what are ways to stay healthy while you travel?

5 Ways to Hold on to the Bliss of a Yoga Retreat

5 Ways to Hold on to the Bliss of a Yoga Retreat

As a yoga retreat comes to a close, feelings of apprehension can start to creep in. Can the calm and centeredness cultivated during the retreat — the sense that things are as they should be — withstand the pressures and stresses of everyday life?

I’ve been thinking about this question last week as I led a retreat in Mallorca. My answer is a resounding “yes” — not only can you hold on to the experience, but it can help you stay grounded through life’s ups and downs. Here are five tips to keep the retreat with you back home.

1. Establish small rituals.

Take some time each day — even if it’s just five minutes — to tune in to yourself and reconnect with the peace and clarity that you experienced during the retreat.

6 Signs The Time Is Right For A Yoga Retreat

IMG_1503
Even if you practice yoga regularly, a yoga retreat may not be the first thing you think of when you’re planning a vacation. Simply getting away and spending time in a new place can shift our perspective and lift our spirits — so why a yoga retreat?

By choosing to take a yoga retreat , you make a powerful commitment to yourself. You carve out time to look inward, to listen to and honor your inner voice — which can sometimes be hard to hear in the noise of daily life. You can also take the retreat with you once it ends, in the form of new friends and valuable tools for managing life’s stresses and challenges.

Still wondering if a yoga retreat is the right choice for you? Here are six signs that it could be just what you need. Read More

5 Reasons To Love Ibiza

5 Reasons To Love Ibiza

1. Bohemian Chic & Lifestyle

Ibiza is the smaller mediterannean island and has a more feminine and laid back vibe than its sister island Mallorca. You find the party crowds and famous dance clubs in the south west of Ibiza and the more bohemian towns and villages in the north and east of the island. if you drive from the most northern part to the southern tip you still only need about 45 min, so the beauty of this island is that you can see all of it in a relatively short time. Wherever you visit you will still enjoy the bohemian touch that Ibiza became so famous for, as it was discovered by the Hippies.  Read More

I visited Mallorca many times in my 20’s, because it was an easy getaway from Germany…..it got a little bit of a bad reputation through all the package tourism in the 90’s, but when I went back last year to spend a week with my family there, I totally rediscovered the island and fell in love with it all over again.

So I am very excited to share my Top 5 Reasons To Visit Mallorca with you here and would love to see you in our upcoming Yoga & Hang Music retreat in Mallorca, May 21-28, 2016!

Coming Home

Coming Home

C O M I N G  H O M E….

I love to travel……I feel lucky that I get to travel for my work and sometimes I am being asked: „…But where is your home? Don’t you feel up-rooted if you are always on the road?“ My honest answer is no……I am excited and inspired to find a sense of home wherever I go….I love seeing my friends places and how they live and love that I get to share a bit of their lifestyle…..

Daniel and I are on the road in Europe right now and sleep on couches, in yoga studios, in cozy hotel beds, in our families and friends homes and what makes it feel like home to us is that we are connected from our hearts. Home to me means a Sacred Space and if I can create it wherever I go, I will feel home. How do we create the Sacred Space we call home? Read More
