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 […]

fascia – our organ of innerness

  ‘Fascia is our organ of innerness. The soul is dwelling in the connective tissues’. ~ Andrew Taylor Still     I am in LOVE with the science of fascia. This for many reasons:   Fascia is our internal ocean. Plus for me the current fascia research brings everything together what I learned through surfing, […]

the wave

  I was curious and a little nervous about how well my workshop about Scaravelli Inspired Yoga would go down at  ‪yogafair yoga teachers academy in Hamburg. But (thank God) the German yogis absolutely loved it! The energy during the 20 min. ‪freeflow practice at the end blew my mind!!   Even though one of my best […]

yoga books for yoga teachers

      Just to give you a little picture of my passion for books: a few years ago I towed with my old 4wd a fairly big tradie’s trailer, half filled with books around Australia. It probably cost me hundreds of dollars for extra fuel and a new head gasket, too.   Being a teacher means […]

constructive feedback

    Yoga teachers (and everybody else), I just wanted to remind you that you can’t please them all. Don’t fall over your own feet even trying.

you are the teacher

  This morning I opened my eyes and felt like a child at Christmas. I skipped onto my mat (well, it felt like it at least), sat down to meditate and then.. . started to write. No asanas, no chanting, or such.. I wrote.   It’s the date of Guru Purnima, a holiday devoted to […]

when it feels light – it’s right

    It’s true, through social media the world has become increasingly posture fixated and  obviously forgot to remember WHY and HOW we came to the mat in the first place.   Of course somebody who’s in a lotus handstand draws more attention than a meditating person. But how realistic, sustainable and functional are those crazy deep postures […]
