I’ve been back in Germany from Goa for almost a week now, and am back in my working routine and the daily hustle. Nonetheless, India is in my heart still, and I hope I will be able to carry my wonderful experience in India around with me for a long time (at least all the way through German winter). From today on there will be weekly vlogs again every Wednesday on Youtube – next week I have a new yoga session, which I filmed by the beach, for you to join! But first things first – this week’s vlog is a wrap-up from my trip to Goa: My #Indiavlog – all about my Yoga Teacher Training and the time in Goa, India!
I am a morning person, and my time in the morning is precious. Over the last years, I have developed a routine which “prepares“ me the best way possible for the day ahead. One part of this routine is a simple stretch session which opens my heart, hip, harmstring and thighs. I am sharing the 7-minute morning flow with you on Youtube today. Enjoy!
It’s Wednesday again, which means that I uploaded another #weeklyvlog to my Youtube channel. Today’s video is a 20-minutes vinyasa flow yoga session for everyone. I am guiding you through the flow, and you are very welcome to join in! Let’s move and breathe and stretch together!
If you follow (health) food blogs or read food magazines and cookbooks, you may be familiar with the series “What I eat in a week“, where people break down what they, well, eat in, well, a week. So why not do something similar for a workout routine? As I already announced that there will be a lot more about fitness happening on the blog as of now, I thought this would be a good start: my workout routine – or: How I exercise in a week. Read below what each workout is “good“ for, and how you can include one or the other session to your own workout routine to become fit, strong, healthy and happy!
If you’ve ever been to a yoga class, or actually are a regular yogi, then you will agree with me that the idea of yoga is a lot more than impressive postures and strong yet flexible muscles. Surely practicing yoga consists of increasing strength and flexibility, however, the “yin“ part of it, the silence, the calm, the rest and self-reflection, is as essential as the physically challenging part (“yang“) for the holistic concept of yoga.
If people ask me how often I practice yoga, I struggle with the right answer to give. Every day, that’s for sure, although I only visit classes once or twice a week. However, also a few minutes of yoga in the morning, a few at night, and some breathing exercises and stretching throughout the day are considered yoga. It’s not only and all about a sweaty 90-minute rocket class! Whether you’re an advanced yogi or at beginners level, I am showing you some simple yoga exercises for every day today, which you can do at home, or even in the office, to feel re-energised, relaxed and liberated. Namaste!
I have once before told you about my passion for Yoga, remember? Wellicious, a London-based yoga wear label, has asked me to team up once again to talk about my progress. So, prepare yourself for a lot of sweat and “Shavasana”! With the temperatures being literally freezing outside, we found shelter in the London Skygarden to take some photos in action for you. Funnily enough, the Skygarden itself offers Yoga classes, too, so I ended up feeling strong and comfortable – exactly like a Yogi – doing my poses among the variety of visitors who came all the way up to the 35th floor for the stunning view over London. There you go: Yoga with a view: the London Skygarden!
