Our Deepest Fear….

IMG_0439….. is not that we are inadequate.

Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light , not our darkness , that most frightens us.

We ask ourselves : ” Who am I to be brilliant , gorgeous , talented , fabulous” ?

Actually , who are you not to be.

Your playing small does not serve the world.

There is nothing enlightened about shrinking, so that other people won`t feel insecure around you.

We are all meant to shine , as children do.

And as we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people the permission to do the same.

As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

Laugh Out Loud

IMG_0489Laughter releases endorphins, which generates a sense of wellbeing.

Laughter boosts your immune system , it decreases stress hormones and increases immune cells and infection fighting antibodies.

Laughter allows your body to automatically relax. In fact , a good hearty laugh relieves muscle tension and mental stress with long lasting effects.

Laughter protects your heart. It improves the function of blood vessels and increases blood flow, which lowers blood pressure.

Laughter increases the ability to stay focused by reducing stress and increasing energy, enabling you to accomplish more.

Laughter reduces feelings of overwhelm and promoters resilience. It creates psychological distance, enabling you to see more choices and gain a lees threatening and more realistic perspective.

Laughter promotes relationships, attracts others to us and defuses conflict.

A Little Reminder

IMG_9509Yoga teaches us to be mentally strong and encourages us to go with the flow.

It helps us to realize we cannot control everything and prepares us for the unexpected.

These skills can be applied at any time of life…….

they will help you to stay calm , reasonable and kinder in your attempt to find solutions.

Entitle yourself to practice Yoga on a regular basis , find out what resonates with you and use your phenomenal  capacity to surf the waves of life.

Open your body & mind to contribute to a more peaceful environment , by sharing your strength with those who are in need .

Inspire – give your heart – give your time :)

Feel Good Do Good

IMG_9683Living with integrity means considering which action would give you happiness.

What feels natural and right?

If something feels wrong for you personally ( assuming that you are not resisting it out of laziness or fear ), you probably shouldn`t do it .

And sometimes the right choice is the one that gives the deepest pleasure.

Your sense of integrity has a lot to do with feeling that you are contributing to the world .

Your motivation to help others , to inspire , to be the best person you can be  – these desires can help you to stay true to yourself.

The deepest form of integrity comes from being in contact with the Self , our spiritual core.

Different traditions call it different names : the heart , the higher self , Tao , the true self , Buddha , nature , ….

Yoga practice gives access to that part of ourselves which is the true source of right action.

So , at the end of the day , it´s through our connection with that inner core that we discover our true integrity as human beings .

By taking time every day to practice yoga, relaxing the mind and the body , respecting your feelings and learning to treat yourself well , you will start to treat other people in your life better.

What Turmeric Can Do For YOU

IMG_9630Spot on the health benefits of turmeric :

As a high antioxidant spice , turmeric has proven to help protect the body and prevent disease.

Curcumin is the active phytochemical in turmeric , which gives it its rich yellow / orange color and has antioxidant properties , that prevent the formation of and neutralize existing free radicals.

Turmeric is a natural liver detoxifier and has been used for thousands of years in traditional herbal medicine to treat liver and digestive disorders.

It helps to clear LDL ( bad cholesterol ) from the liver and enhances liver function. Curcumin literally stops the oxidation of cholesterol, thereby protecting against the formation of plaque in the arteries.

Turmeric can help to spike metabolism and helps to reduce blood sugar levels.

Turmeric aids circulation :)

Turmeric has incredible anti – cancer properties and has been shown to stop the growth of new blood vessels in tumors.

It stops precancerous changes within DNA and interferes with enzymes necessary for cancer progression .

Turmeric is a powerful , natural anti – inflammatory without the side effects of many conventional anti – inflammatory drugs.

It is good for all arthritic conditions because of this and can help to decrease muscle soreness after an intense workout.

Turmeric is a natural antibiotic, antiseptic and antibacterial agent that helps to treat wounds , cuts and burns, while also speeding up wound healing and damaged skin.

Last but not least , Turmeric has long been used as a treatment for depression in Chinese medicine .

Turmeric is very easy to blend in all type of foods and very tasty in fresh juices and smoothies – try yourself and enjoy the benefits of this wonderful spice :)

What Is Health To You ?

IMG_9514To some it means not being sick , some say it`s being able to do what they want to do.

Some equate health with energy and some say health is a long life.

To me , health is not just the absence of diseases, but it also means a life full of energy and vitality .

Drinking fresh juices,created with organic fruits & vegetables and practicing yoga on a daily bases , empowers me to live life fully , energetic and hopefully it helps me to inspire others.

I just feel closer to everything , more online, by fueling my body and mind the right way .

Love & Peace



The Power Of Still

IMG_9155You can be still and still get things done :)

There can be a temptation to confuse stillness with doing nothing and somehow no longer pursuing external goals in life.

The good news for those keen to enjoy both serenity and success is , that being still does`t mean you become idle, quite the opposite in fact.

When you are inwardly aware of stillness, your mind quietens and you naturally experience clarity, intuition and creativity.

You enter a heightened state of being , that many athletes or artists know very well as ” the zone ” or ” flow ” , in which you are present and your thinking mind is out of the way .

From the ” here and now ” and with a clear mind , you will be amazed at what can be accomplished.

Personally , that`s where I am when I teach my yoga classes and treat my clients – by being still through present moment attentiveness, I find the right words and feel my way into the other persons energy .

From this inner state of silence within your conscious awareness you remain calm and on top of every challenging situation .

Love & Peace




The Time Is Now

IMG_8572Notice what you have

Many people only ( or mainly) notice what they feel is missing about themselves or in their lives .

How come that one thing is worthy of all the attention  over all the things you did get right ?

Shift your focus of attention now on what you have , what you`ve achieved and what you enjoy and more will follow.

Don`t compare

Your strength , your successes, the lovely things and people in your life are no less , because someone else has more.

Someone else always has more. That`s pretty much a given .

The autopilot response is often to think that our good stuff isn`t that good when we notice that someone else has more. Yet I`m sure you admire many people who aren`t world champions.

Because being the best is irrelevant to being worthy of pride or admiration.

Don`t be a victim

We can all think of times when we did our best and things still didn`t go to plan .

We can all think of situations when circumstances or other people made our life harder.

This is not unique to any of us. Yet it can be easy to fall into the trap of using these people or circumstances as an excuse for why we don`t get our act together and get on with whatever we know we need and want to achieve .

Who`s in control of your life then ? Take control and see how you can improve things. Where could you take more responsibility ?

Don`t wait for others to :)

Peace & Love IMG_8636


IMG_8335Finally I`m back on track and have a lot of things to share with you :)

First of all I would love to offer you some simple relaxation techniques which can be used when – and wherever :)

Breathe Soften the belly and bring your awareness to the breath. The body responds immediately. The wave of breath  begins to flow into all parts of the body.

Relax Full breathing automatically initiates relaxation. In order to deepen this effect you can consciously relax your facial muscles , your jaw , your neck muscles , your belly.

Feel Begin to actively investigate the wave of feeling generated by this relaxation. Where in your body do you feel sensation, energy , movement ? Observe. Move towards the sensation and feelings , rather than away from them.

Watch As your thoughts quieten down  and you enter more fully into your sensations, you may notice a witnessing awareness beneath or ” inside ” your experience. Allow yourself to identify with this Witness . The Witness stands at the center of the experience and is able to be with the experience , the sensation , the feeling, but not overwhelmed by it.

Allow Allow the wave of feeling to wash through you. No need to block anything. It will not destroy you . It will not hurt others. Stay with it . It`s safe – stay with yourself :)

Love & PeaceIMG_8683
