Yoga and Diving in the Philippines – 1 week schedule

Posted by in Diving, Travel, Yoga, Yoga & Diving Retreat, Yoga retreat

Yoga and diving make a great pair! Yoga calms you down and brings your focus back to your body and breath. Diving benefits from just these qualities – while diving, it’s important to breathe deeply and to live purely in the moment without a monkey-brain to distract you with its chatter. So why not combine both during your next holiday? Philippines is a great spot for both diving and yoga. The thousands and thousands of islands give you plenty of choice, but we all know that sometimes too many choices can also feel…read more

A Natural Way to Clean Your Yoga Mat

Posted by in essential oils, Yoga

Cleaning your yoga mat is an important matter for all practicing yogis. Whilst there are many ready-made solutions out there, they might be expensive, hard to get and full of chemicals. Luckily it is very easy to make the solution yourself! Here in the tropics we are not only limited in our supply of ready-made solutions, but also always looking to have simple and natural solutions to everyday challenges. Like how to keep your mat clean, hygienic and smelling fresh. We have recently started working with essential oils (doTERRA oils,…read more

F R E E D I V I N G – Day 3

Posted by in Challenge, Diving, Freediving, Meditation, Travel, Yoga

All is well that ends well. All is well that ends in smiles. But I did not know that when Day 3 came around. I really just had two choices. Either to give into my fear, start crying and paddle back to the shore, or I could toughen up and go through the very thing I wanted least in world (at that moment). There is always a choice… HOMEWORK The night before the last day we did our homework in the form of a carbon dioxide table. You take an…read more

When We Surrender to the Moment

Posted by in Life Coaching, Meditation, Retreat, Yoga, Yoga retreat

For the last two weeks I have had the pleasure of guiding our first Yoga Retreats of the year here in Camiguin, Philippines. This meant starting and ending the days with yoga, and having insightful meditation and Life Coaching in between. Like always, every retreat teaches me something, every student makes me realize something new. This time my most important lessons were about letting go. Of plans, of goals, of future as we hope it will unfold. I saw what happens, when we are fully in the moment, trusting that the next breath, or…read more

When do we judge success?

Posted by in Change, Life, Yoga

Lately I have come across the same topic from many different people. What is considered success, and when can we draw the conclusion that something has been a success (or a failure)? Is there a time-limit to adventures? Many people want to try something crazy and daring, maybe change their lives in some drastic ways, but are hesitating due to a fear of failure. What if we make the leap, try our wings, and then for some reason it does not work? Would we have to come back home, tail between…read more

What should Yoga look like?

Posted by in Travel, Yoga

For the past month I have been doing pretty much nothing else but yoga. And by yoga I mean YOGA in its full glory. I have learned more about the Yamas and Niyamas and tried to practice them to the best of my abilities. I have often started my mornings at 5:30am to practice asana for few hours, followed by many more sweaty hours of asana workshops until late evening. I have learned that singing OM together in a class can be the best thing ever (whereas I used to…read more
