What a weekend!
It was supposed to be my Yoga-crazy week with 9 classes to teach and 4 full days at the office. And when I'm honest - the weeks before we're actually not too different. Since I came back from Kiezburn I never slept more than 5 hours, never actually caught up on the sleep that I skipped during the 5 days in the woods and generally just ran -or cycled- from one event to the other. One could say these were some power weeks.
And since I obviously refused to rest another power took over and forced me to finally go slower - I had a small accident with my bike and found two strangers bringing me to the doctors when I should have been teaching my first class for the day. Luckily no broken bones but quite a shock and my whole body hurting, nausea and dizziness. So I had to cancel my other classes for the day and just stayed in for the entire day. What a blessing. After actually hitting he road with my face I am so so lucky to get by with just a few bruises and I am so grateful for being forced to stop. A friend of mine came immediately to find me at the doctors and brought me home, treating me with breakfast and another lovely Being came to bring me dinner and cuddle me to sleep.
It is rare that I allow someone to take care of me. I normally enjoy taking care of others and refuse being weak myself.
In German there is the expression of 'auf die Fresse fallen' which literally means to face-plant and actually just means to fail.
I failed in taking care of myself and to take tests where needed. I am entirely grateful for this rough reminder that forced me to stop. I enjoyed my weekend with lots of sleep, seeing good friends over really good and long talks and could finish the weekend with a nice and long yin and meditation session at @yogibar_berlin. It was exactly what I needed and life forced it onto me.
Make sure to take care of yourselves, taking the rest you need - otherwise you will get to a point where you will be forced to slow down. Be sure to be in charge yourself to make the decision of when and where to pause for a bit.

#nofilter needed cause Berlin is beautiful!
Just met some awesome #Yoginis for a shoot with @locboyle - I'm already super curious and excited how the pics are gonna turn out! 📸

Flashback to #kiezburn2017 📸 by @eladshin
In these few days we created a world with ideals that reflect our sense of wellbeing and true happiness. A world of laughter, joy, excitement. Where everyone looks out for each other, doesn't enrich themselves by the cost of others, where there is no money exchanged but everyone gifts what they can share with others. Utopia or a hidden reality?
It is about us to create the life we want to see for ourselves and others, to take responsibility and constantly participate. In every little detail. Starting with how you get to your work, how you treat your colleagues, how you share your wisdom, how you treat and create your workplace. Can we thus transform 'work' into places of creation and collaboration on mutual interests?

Tomorrow you can join me for a Morning Yoga marathon: 🦋9-10.30am Slow Flow at HeileHaus 🐆11.30am Energizing Yoga Warrior Class at YAAM YOGA
#slowflow #warrioryoga #yaamyoga

Practice with a view!
P.S.: This Place is available for private classes...

Yoga is Like Music.
The Rhythm of the Body,
The Melody of the Mind and
Harmony of the Soul Creates the Symphony of Life.
Happy international Yoga Day!!🙏🏻

Observe your own body. It breathes. You breathe when you are asleep, when you are no longer conscious of your own ideas of self-identity. Who, then, is breathing? The collection of information that you mistakenly think it’s you is not the main protagonist in this drama called the breath. In fact, you are not breathing; breath is naturally happening to you. You can purposely end your own life, but you cannot purposely keep your own life going. The expression, “My life” is actually an oxymoron, a result of ignorance and mistaken assumption. You don’t posses life; life expresses itself through you. Your body is a flower that life let bloom, a phenomenon created by life.” ― Ilchi Lee: The twelve enlightenments

Falling for you head to toes... ❤️☀️🎶 Im really wondering - do seasons really have such a strong impact on me? I feel so unbelievable happy and relaxed at the moment. Feeling like I'm just exactly at the right spot doing the right things. Even though a lot of things go wrong are just insane - I am so in love with life!
How is this for people who do not experience seasons like winter or autumn - are they in a steady high or is it that they can really feel the high because of a lack of lows? 🤔

#bujapidasana - shoulder pressing pose
This pose is all about strength & balancing. We need the strength to lift our body weight off the floor and balance it on our hands. Without any focus we loose balance and just fall onto our face. So we really need to keep our shit together. It almost feels like a moment I. Which Zhou have to stay strong to not burst out in tears - holding all of your emotions back. So Even more important to let go and release after this pose. In the #primaryseries this pose is followed by #suptakurmasana which to me always feels like returning home - hiding out in your snail house and allowing yourself to feel everything, to whine, sigh or cry.
Same as in our life's - if we want to harmonically live together we sometimes need to hold back but it is as important that we find our own personal space in which we can allow ourselves to feel, express and simply let go.

From tomorrow on we start our Thursday morning session already at 7.30am! Cause you know, the early bird is a pigeon and loves 🐍 🐶 and 🌲 pose!

How does your perfect day look like?
Most of you would probably say sleeping in & not having to work, right?
I just realized I had my perfect day today- even though I got up at 6am and even though I was also working. But the difference was that I got up for a good reason - starting the day with Dynamic Meditation at @oshostudioberlin followed by a class at @peaceyogaberlin is a pretty damn good reason - and my job today was to teach two Yoga classes and to prepare my workshop for Saturday - which I did while enjoying coffee in the sun.
Also I normally do not like losing time on transportation but since I took the long way to @thehausberlin as an opportunity for a nice bike ride through Tiergarten I absolutely loved not only the exhibition but also to way there!

So the moral is - start creating the life you love to get up for! Start now 🎶🌈☀️
