Spring Clean

CrazyChicks on Kiti Square

In the last post I wrote about moving away from things that just do not feel right, even if reason can tell us otherwise. Needless to say, the topic of recognising when it is time to change the course and refocus energies has been in my mind a lot lately. Not that I have gone for some radical overhaul of my life (yet), rather I have tweaked certain…

Giving Up is an Option too

April 12, 2017
Countryside activities

When it comes to life advice, open any website, app or TV programme and we are quickly fooled into thinking that giving up is the biggest cardinal sin. From fitness routines, diets, dating to self-entrepreneurship, there seems to be an entire industry reminding us of the hidden powers and untapped potential that lives within us. We are advised how we should be pushing in the face of obstacles…

Yoga, Spirituality and Reddit

March 10, 2017

There are as many yoga stereotypes out there are as there are styles of yoga. And as with all the stereotypes, they do not come completely from nowhere, just as much as they do not represent the whole truth either. From time to time I come across comments from people who express interest in yoga, followed by a “but” and a reference to the level of spirituality associated.…

…that I have been wanting to note down. There is a lovely yoga boutique in Paris called Yoga Concept (123 Rue Turenne.) It was small but packed with brands hard to find in Europe in stores (like Teeki and Alo Yoga) and on their website they make a commitment to work with small quality brands, as well as local designers. In addition to clothes they also sell yoga…

Social media update and why I use it in the first place.

February 3, 2017

I started this blog because I like writing  and I did not find (m)any blogs about yoga combining the physical and more spritual aspects of it. I’ve been using Instagram for several years because I like taking and looking at photos. Insta also proved to be a great tool when I was recovering from my dislocated shoulder few years back. It allowed me to follow my progress that…

CMD 2017/renew

January 1, 2017

What seems to be the most anticipated New Year is finally here and yes, I for one am pretty happy for it. Not because 2016 was personally the worst ever (but it was very bizarre) but because those weird ”non-existent days” between Christmas and New Year always make me feel like I am on a weird limbo-timeloop where nothing you do really counts (for the good and the…

A little bit more sustainable Christmas Presents

December 17, 2016

Buying Christmas presents (or any present) can be a bit of stress, especially if left at the last-ish minute, and/or you have just run out of ideas. I would normally recommend a donation to a charity of your choice, in the name of the gift receiver, but if you think your nearest and dearest are not quite ready to hear you have given out goats/toilets/school uniforms on their…

…I took an evening flow yoga class, taught in Greek and in Russian. It’s always good to explore what’s out there. It was a nice class, with music too. …Finland had her 99th Independence Day. I celebrated it at a reception where I met another yoga teacher. We talked about our respective teacher trainings and how we both like a slow practise. …”My” Teacher Anna Zorzou is on…
