After a few days of doubts and contemplations, I have signed up for the Meditation Revolution program with Yoga Journal. Still not sure if I’ll be able to keep up with my crazy corporate full time job, freelance stuff, regular yoga practice, trips and all the other parts of life, but life’s always busy, right? … Continue reading

Equinox Paddle Board Yoga Video

After a veeeeery long day, when I did not make it to my yoga class and did not do whole bunch of other things either, this video has taken me so far away from it all. The music, the setting, the yogi, the rhytm…  Equinox makes great yoga videos! Beautiful in every way! Just think … Continue reading

Let There Be Light

This is not really a post, just a photo to celebrate the second half of the week. I love Thursdays, as they are close to weekends, but there’s still time to get all things done. This is an old photo taken on the Phuket island. Although the horizon is messed up, I still like it. … Continue reading

Turkish Delight

They say, be careful what you wish for… I’ve been wishing to visit Istanbul for quiet a while. First, I even had a business trip there almost set up, but it did not happen… However, the city was attracting me… The Gateway to the East, old Byzantine capital which later became the center of the … Continue reading

Twisting Do’s and Don’t’s Do: Practice twists on the exhale Practice dynamic movements before static stretches Standing movements should come before sitting/locking the hips on the … Continue reading

Asana in Spotlight: Vasisthasana

I have trouble answering the question about my favorite yoga pose. It depends and it changes. Often. Our body is smart, so it usually answers these questions for us, coupled with our mind. When I’m stressed and out of balance in my life, I find myself dreading balance poses. As I shared before, give me … Continue reading

Yellow Yoga Mat???

Yellow is color of sun, light, classic Margaritas and summery nail polish. Yoga mat, besides being number one yoga prop, is a place to do something you love and have a luxury of staying in the moment; personal space and loving what you do... now.
