If you have tried yoga, you most likely have come across mantra chanting at some point. I love chanting mantras. While singing is fun (especially if no one’s listening ;-)), there is something incredibly soothing, sometimes even magical about chanting.
This is a post I have written a couple of years ago, before owning a yoga studio and before creating the community I wanted to belong to. I am hoping that this post might help another teacher who is facing similar questions… I have asked myself that question a lot over the last summer: What […]
My favourite bread of all times is sourdough bread. Soft and moist on the inside, crips and crunchy on the outside, sourdough bread never ceases to excite me, in all its gluten loaded glory.
If you, like me, fancy a filling, healthy breakfast that’s so good it could easily pass as pudding, yet you are not enough of a foodie to let go of the snooze button, I’ve got just the thing for you:

I have searched and experimented for a long time to get to the perfect red lentil curry. And finally, the journey has come to an end, with this ever so slightly spicy, zingy yet creamy-smooth, gorgeously textured version of orange goodness in a bowl. I am a fan of spices – but I don’t like spicy food. […]
About a year ago, when I was waiting for the landlords’ decision about renting out the space that would become my yoga studio a couple of months later, I found myself googling “what’s it like to own a yoga studio?” There was little on the web about the matter back then. Now, nine months into […]
