when we stop making shapes, when we begin to feel … we heal

    When we stop making shapes, when we begin to feel…we heal.   As yogis (surfers, movers…) we learn the wonderful processes of awakening through the stimulation of our bodies and minds. And it really is through Interoception – the sensing of the physiological state inside our bodies. Fascia, the organ of wholeness, is […]

what if…

  After some unforgettable days at Bells Beach my voyage has come to an end and with it a new chapter begins.   I went on ‘retreat’ because apart from my love for teaching, working within the yoga community and feeling 100% of service while doing so, my longing for surfing in the West became […]

deceleration for growth

  ‘As for you, you must risk everything for Freedom, and give everything for Passion, loving everything that your heart and your body loves. The only thing higher and more sacred for a woman than her freedom and her passion should be her desire to make her life into poetry, surrendering everything she has to […]

morning ritual: connecting to love

  A student recently asked me what my most important practice would be.   I use different things (meditation, movement, breath, connecting with others) for whatever is needed. But one always remains the same:   The very first thing I do when waking up is to percolate for a minute or so the things I’m […]

a multidimensional me

      Long flights often beam me into hours of reflection.   Some parts in my life are about as uncertain as they can get – by choice. At the moment, I have no idea how my path will be paved or how the lessons I opened up to will teach me.   Nevertheless, I’m […]

i’m a beginner again

  I’m a beginner again, in every sense of the word, and I love it.   Understanding, that its just by action-reaction that I live in a certain way. So if I want to experience life differently, I have to think and do differently.   To become masters of anything we have to practice. To […]

come from love, be fearless

photo via pintest   Again, I’m writing about the moon. A few years ago I was simply in awe of its brightness, when walking through the desert camp at night and it’s great effects on the ocean. That was all. But now, its mysterious energy got me. It’s proving its power to me time and […]

fascia – change your brain with your body

‘Do your yoga.’  Mark Whitwell  recently quoted  Krishnamacharya with this and reminded me of what I so often highlight in my classes. Even though we have a selection of postures and meditations, you have to eventually trust your intuition and find your own way of practicing.  There is no such thing such as style, posture or behaviour […]
