Yoga (SO) Easy...

05 06 2013

I have not done my yoga routine lately and that is really NOT GOOD.

I already feel my back and neck getting stiff and tense.

Health and well-being should be priority instead of working all the time.

So, for a while now i am thinking about how to get a fresh and new start to get me back onto the mat.

Rituals - Roots And Wings Included

26 04 2012

Before the day starts I do yoga every morning!

O.k.

I TRY to do Yoga every morning... 

It's actually so much easier to do it every morning as a ritual, because then these stupid conversations inside your head, whether this or that would be more urgent to do than doing yoga, are simply swept under the mat. 

Yoga IS goodforyouandyourbodyandyourhealthandtheuniverse - so let's do it!

With Yogis Anonymous or Yoga Easy or a great DVD or in your favorite yoga studio or just you and yourself - everything works - and with regularity comes ritual.

According to Constanze Kleis, rituals can give us something truly amazing: roots and wings simultaneously. Psychologist figured out the true potential of rituals. They are a sort of base camp for feelings and are identified as the most important stabilizing factor in families as well as bringing forth and fostering creativity, imagination and awakening.

WOW!!! 

Well - that's totally worth it, right?

Do you have any rituals? 



Yogatta look into this...

01 10 2011

Remember my sweet sweaty Yoga diving experience back in August?

Well - a thoughtful empathic Yogi left me a wonderful web link which REALLY spiced up my home practice.

YOGIS ANONYMOUS offers a great service in bringing live-streaming and on demand yoga videos right to the front of your mat after you paid a small fee for unlimited weekly or monthly access.


It's just fabulous - I absolutely LOVE it! "Click"; close your eyes and there you are - practicing in a Los Angeles Yoga studio together with your fellow Yoga enthusiasts.


You get to choose from PLENTY of different classes with great - sometimes world renowned - teachers and events ranging from level 1 to level 4 (!) "flying on and off the mat" classes, where you can watch some awesome yogis gracefully throwing dozens of handstands inbetween the most crazy asanas. BREATHTAKING...


The good thing though is - after surviving the intimidation - that I'm a lot more willing to push myself through demanding sequences and explore pushing my personal boundaries than I would ever do practicing on my own.

So - from now on NO more excuses that you couldn't make it to class - it's available all the time and wherever you are...

If you want to give it a try - please remember: It's YOUR precious body and YOU are responsible for it. Gentleness and mindfulness should definitely be your class mates...


O.K. pals - whatcha say???


"Uhmm...I guess...after carefully discussing our options here...

...we'll start with...uhmmm...


Savasana Relaxation..."

OM NAMASTE



Yogatta do some swimming

21 08 2011

Oh have i been longing to go to a great yoga class for more than a year now!

Since we moved to a remote little country village in northern Germany, my yoga class mates are:

- a mat

- one to three cats watching me and this mat

- music

That's it!

So, for the time I'm visiting Santa Barbara, I try to escape to a yoga class in my favorite studio as often as possible to spark and renew my motivation and to seek fun ideas and inspirations for my home practice.

Well - big surprise!

While I was gone, many yoga teachers in this town have miraculously changed into swim teachers these days.

(For following this article it's important that you keep in mind that I did NOT attended a single Bikram yoga class while visiting Santa Barbara and that you remember, it's August in Southern California while I'm writing this...)

The teacher heats the room to a sauna-like temperature, takes great care that all windows and doors are securely shut and starts guiding- already breathless- yogis through 50+ Chaturangas on their slippery mats who try to keep up while diving through puddles and lakes built of their own SWEAT.

I do understand, that it might be beneficial to release toxins with the sweat and experience a "deeper" practice with those already half cooked muscles BUT is that REALLY fun???

I NEED AIR!

I need FRESH air! Yoga is about LIBERATION!


Let's go to the beach - AHHHH - what a wonderful, refreshing and FREE feeling...


Sometimes you have to take a BIG jump and free yourself from what everybody else is doing and thinking.


Find YOUR 'mojo' and restore your inner freedom.
