6 Signs The Time Is Right For A Yoga Retreat

6 Signs The Time Is Right For A Yoga Retreat
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

Discover The Magic Of Yin Yoga

Discover The Magic Of Yin Yoga

Discover The Magic Of Yin Yoga

I have been practicing vinyasa flow for 20 years now and teaching for 13….while I still enjoy this practice so much for its graceful flow with the meditative breath, I have lately discovered a new passion: Yin Yoga. I completed a training with Indira Kate Kalmbach and am very excited to not only practice but also share it with you in my retreats and regular classes.

We usually practice a more dynamic, so called yang style of yoga, and most of our life off the mat is actually also very yang. It’s very muscular and active, creates strength and stability, which we all benefit from greatly.   Read More

5 Reasons To Love Ibiza

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

A few weeks ago I came across a great turmeric summer smoothie recipe, posted by my friend Madhavi on her blog  and I was excited to try it.

Are  you looking for a cool new summer shake? 

I love this one, so I am happy to share it here with you!

Curcuma also known as Turmeric is nothing new to Eastern cultures, in fact it’s been known as a “healing spice” and used to help anything from sore throats, colds, flus, stomach aches to wound healing, abrasions/skin issues due to it’s antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. It is also quite famous for its anti inflammatory healing properties, helps to purify the blood and liver and also inhibits cancer cell growth and prevents many types of cancer because of its high amount of phytonutrients !!!

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

Still one of my favorite quotes……have you found the love you long for? Often we think this love is coming to us if we are lucky, yet I believe we have to make ourselves ready to receive it. Over the last couple of weeks, while leading our retreat at Anamaya and having visits from friends, I shared many great conversations about love and it seems, it’s still the biggest challenge out there, to find love and to love ourselves better. 

So here is a reminder of some great & simple tools we can use: Read More

Happy Birthday, Montezuma Yoga!

Happy Birthday, Montezuma Yoga!

This sunday, November 30th, we will celebrate Montezuma Yoga‘s 13th Birthday.

I remember so very well how I arrived here in december 2000 from New York City and fell in love……Montezuma Yoga then was born almost a year later while lying in the hammock listening to the sound of the ocean and having a moment with a glimpse of an idea to create a website. You know, those glimpses that we easily forget and not react on, because we think we can do it later…….thank god I did react that moment, because it shifted my life into the new direction I am so grateful for today…..
