Vegan Bircher Muesli

The other day I wrote about the five koshas in yoga anatomy. Today, we emerge into spring with grounding. If music nourishes my open heart and bliss sheath (Anandamaya Kosha), Tantra strengthens my intuition and inner vision (Vijnanamaya Kosha), Meditation quietens my monkey mind (Manomaya Kosha) and Pranayam, breath work, balances my energy field (Pranamaya…

Ekam Yoga Festival

I’m still integrating after a deep shammanic journey one-week off in the Blue Mountains and not surprisingly life’s business has thrown me straight into an involuntary spring cleanse. This is my body saying to to going from no speed to 150kmh in no time. Once I find my words I will try and give my…

Time off

The importance of taking time out has been written about many a times. And yet, I feel the urge to mention it again as I see most people talking about it, and very few actually doing it, including myself. Until last month that is. After last year’s seemingly long, cold and monotonous winter, I wouldn’t…

What’s it like to be a Doula?

Next to my yoga and home-schooling, I have been doula-ing on and off for almost a decade now.

The five Koshas applied

As a seasoned yogi you will know that in subtle yoga anatomy the body is divided into five layers: Anamaya Kosha – the grossest form of the physical body. Put simply, everything you can touch, including skin and bones. Pranamaya Kosha – the energy body. The breath and the force which causes everything to flow…

Confest

It’s quite remarkable how the past six months have shifted things in my life. It started with my first Ayahuasca journey late last year. A deep insight from Pachamama. From there further signs and tools and wake up calls trickled in – from conversations with friends, understandings from my yoga students, more sacred ceremonies, tantric…

Learning to celebrate 🎉

  Learning to celebrate might just throw the biggest question mark on my Leo friends’ faces. Why does one have to learn to celebrate a birthday? I loved them so much yesterday as they whole-heartedly shared during my birthday circle how they don’t only have a birthday party, but fully indulge in a whole month…
