  • It happens within you! It happens within you!

    It happens within you!

It happens within you!

It’s been quite a while since I wrote the last post.
A lot of changes happened, we moved from Mallorca to Germany to settle in Freiburg for a while.
But here I am in Mysore, India once again for one month!
This time it was not so easy to get accepted to study with Sharath, because so many people from all over the world try to get a spot, one has to be on time to apply and be patient waiting for an answer. I applied twice until I got accepted and you can imagine how happy I’ve been for that positive answer!
Grateful to be here and experience the Mysore Magic once again!
And it IS magical!
Having the opportunity to be close to my teacher and get just the attention I need, not more nore less. Just so that I trust in my own abilities but on the other hand giving me the space that I need so I have to put effort myself, working on removing the obstacles on my way.
Like Sharath said in one of his weekly conferences, where he’d talk about different topics that could be of interest and answering questions as well, he said:
You cannot change the world, you can only change yourself!
That’s where we have to put our focus, to work on ourselves. Before we get to judge others or to compare ourselves to others. No need to do that! Be the change that you want to see in the world!
And if we’re courages enough to do what we really want to do, there will be more challenges so that we can grow even more and get to know ourselves even better. But we don’t have to worry about the outcome because it […]

  • Transition Transition

Transition

It is time for transition!
The stork is a symbol for renewal, creation and new birth.

As I’m in Mysore, India at the moment to study at KPJAYI with R. Sharath Jois for the fourth time, that means transition anyhow. India itself can be hardly described, I think one has to experience it by oneself to get a taste of it.
Studying Yoga here in the Shala inbetween people from all over the world is so inspiring as well as challenging.
I’m glad to have my teacher around for these two months as well, it’s quite overwhelming sometimes.

I felt before coming to India that it was time for a transition. Mallorca is a beautiful island, I love the sea, the mediterranean climate, the beach, the spanish language…..
But I felt also that it was not the right place for me to grow.
I’m so grateful for the time I had in Mallorca, being able to pass on my knowledge and teach, so grateful for every single student studying with me. You’ve been so inspiring!

But it is time to move on, Freiburg im Breisgau, that’s where you’ll find me from mid of March on.
There won’t be daily classes, I’ll update the schedule as soon as possible. For questions feel free to contact me anytime.

  • Barefoot Barefoot

    Barefoot

Barefoot

Take off your shoes!

Especially now in hot summertime we have perfect conditions for walking without shoes.
It has so many benefits, I’d like to list some of them:


• beautiful feet
people who walk barefoot a lot have well formed feet because shoes restrict our feet and without them all the muscles get activated, even the legs will be well formed.


• warm feet
while walking barefoot we activate our foot muscles much more intense than while wearing shoes, the underground works like a natural massage


• supporting the spine
if you have healthy feet, your spine will be healthy too
to have well trained feed supports an upright and healthy spine, therefore perceiving the underground is very important


• strengthening the immune system
through activating the muscles and different stimuli of temperature the immune system gets stronger,
it helps also preventing varicose veines, the calfes work like a blood pump towards the heart


• makes happy
being as close to nature as you can be creates a feeling of happiness,
everybody knows that walking in nature creates such a feeling, but doing it barefoot is even better!

Also Yoga is done barefoot because we want to activate all the muscles and strenghten the various joints of the feet. It feels great to walk with healthy feet!
