Free.Spirit.Flow.

Last year my team at work gave me a nice yogic birthday present: a voucher for Lola & Fred - now Lola Studio, free to use for classes or related apparel. 9 months later, I decided to finally redeem it, of course for yoga classes 😉 It was not my first time in the shop …

Chairs and chutney

I'm working on a new personal project (more details to come soon!) for which I was invited to a meeting with Poonam, the owner of Sanapurna. She also had me over as her guest for the Monday evening hatha class, which for me was a fantastic start into the week and a welcome reminder to focus …

Yoga in pink

A few months ago I was contacted by the Pink Ribbon Schweiz team regarding my blog, which they found a very helpful resource in their search for yoga studios. Their initiative was to engage with the studios and offer charity yoga sessions early April, in the name of the fight against breast cancer. In exchange …

Wines, kites, yoga and more

The best part about my yoga blog project is not the practice or the writing or the glory (kidding :)), but the fantastic people it brings me in touch with. Each yoga teacher has a different style and energy and philosophy, so each new contact is an enriching experience. Florie of Art Yoga is definitely on …

(More)Yoga – even on holiday!

On holiday it's particularly hard to hold on to your home routine... unless you have super dedicated friends who nail you to it! That's how we all ended up in yoga class on Saturday morning in Camden, London 😉 We went to MoreYoga, a big chain which happens to have their Camden studio just a …

Sunday yoga & brunch

Sometimes the best thing about doing something is what you get after it's done. I know, it's not very yogic not to live in the moment but hey, looking ahead also has its advantages. A good example of this situation is the Sunday Yoga & Brunch event hosted regularly by Soul City! Of course yoga …

Barre x yoga x cardio = ♥

About a month ago I visited QiYoga for the first time, and I liked it a lot! Great location, beautiful rooms, varied offering (although I must say I miss early morning classes on that schedule…). So last week I went back to take advantage of my 3x trial pass and tried out two classes that …

Yoga on IWD

After many years, it's really nice to be living again in a country that celebrates International Women's Day (IWD) on March 8! It's a very big thing in Romania (and I believe generally in Eastern Europe), and I missed it a lot in Germany. While we may argue that women should celebrate themselves every day …

Yoga for a vegan cause

I met Anna while waiting for a yoga class that never took place. We didn't get discouraged by the cancellation, but practiced together and chatted away about yoga, life, plans, everything. That's when I found out Anna had just completed her yoga teacher training and was slowly starting her teaching journey. That was over a …

Room for yoga

Sometimes you just have some "off-days" and don't want to leave the couch for *anything* in the world. That happened to me a few days ago. I had backaches and lower stomach pain and somehow tension all over – why does everything have to break down at the same time?! While the preservation instinct says …
