Iceland Retreat, December 3 – 8, 2022

No Comments
Hi Friends!

I’m so thrilled to announce this special Fire.Ice.Flow retreat, in collaboration with our long-time friend Erin Lewis (original Strala Guide, evolved into socially-conscious entrepreneur and founder of Eat Pray Move retreats).

Please read more and reserve your spot here

Iceland is my dream location to hold this special retreat. I’m in a phase of my life where I remind myself daily to choose what brings wonder, joy, calm, ease and happiness. In a reflection, I picked up my phone and asked Erin if she would be open to doing something with us in Iceland. Thankfully, she was on the same wave.

We will visit glaciers, geysers, waterfalls and thermal spas, and practice twice daily. You’ll have me for the yoga and Mike for the tai chi.

We’ve never done anything like this and are so thrilled to do this with you. If you’d like to join, please save your space soon. This is very limited and we’ll have loads of personal time to spend together in this incredible part of the world.

 

 

Finding the right distance. It’s a practice we can feel out and adjust in every moment. Cool thing is when you create a good relationship with yourself, finding the right relationship with others becomes a joy.From @stralayoga training in Berlin a couple years back. We are hoping to be there with a nice group next summer celebrating finding the right relationship.#stralayoga #shiatsu #yogateachertraining #taichi

It’s so easy to stick to habits that are familiar, even when they are destructive. We all have our reasons, our armor and our guard up to protect ourselves against whatever specific formula triggers us. We are afraid if we are more gentle with ourselves, we won’t be braced to defend ourselves, but the opposite is true. Moving like you love yourself in yoga and life is a choice to create a new, lasting habit, a way of being truly you.Tai Chi, nature, science, and the wisdom of your Great Grandmother, remind us when you go to war with yourself, you lose. When you move with whole self harmony towards progress, treating every bad habit you find along the way as a gold mind opportunity to move toward balance, you feel better, your body works better and you have access to more of yourself. You have a chance to do some good.I move like I love myself. It can start with an idea, a mantra, a practice, a way of being. If you choose to let it make a home in you, you will have gone to peace with yourself. Anything is possible.Pic by @jes.lock & @arslanstype @sundanceresort for Rest & Renew Training & Retreat#connection #selflove #wellbeing #stralayoga #taichi

Fun one 👋Why do you practice ease? To feel better, to be able to enjoy more, serve more, to have enough energy to run around with the little ones in your life or something else? Pic by @inaraa_yoga before class in Berlin.Let us know in the comments.
Every  breath is an opportunity to feel better.
