Please read on, and I might just convince you to give these leg huggers a try. I am definitely a lover of yoga pants. More of some than of others (depending on […]

Review: Perfect Spot Hostel Lisbon, Portugal

Aaah Portugal, one of the sunniest areas of Europe. With around 3000 hours sunshine a year, it’s no wonder so many Northern Europeans escape their polar climate, and head down to the land of plenty. Ideal for surfers (so many different waves), Portugal has something to offer every traveller. So when I was invited to review the Perfect Spot Hostel for a Surf & Yoga […]

How To Find Balance in Your Life

This week’s theme in class is ‘finding balance’. Finding balance in an unstable environment, such as the ocean, such as life. We focus a lot on arm balances, core exercises and standing balances. But how do you find this balance? Just practice? Yoga is all about balance, but is anyone ever really ‘balanced’? How good a yogi you may be, […]

Natural Birth Control with the Lady-Comp: Why I Quit Hormones

This title sounds like I’ve become a full-blown hippie. Fear not, I still shave, I just had cosmetic surgery (had to remove a mole that was annoying me), I eat meat, and I use airplanes. After 15 years of taking the Pill though, I have decided to quit. I did it once before, and it felt good. Somehow I started […]

Summer has come to an end here in Holland. And so has my stay. It has been a blast, this whole Summer. But, now it’s time to follow the sun again. One year ago, while living on Bali, I made the decision to one day come back again. That day is in 2 weeks. So, on Wednesday the 23rd I […]

Review: Elephant Nature Park, Chang Mai, Thailand

Thailand is one of the best countries to visit if you want to immerse yourself in yoga. If you want to do some ‘karma’ yoga (aka volunteering), and if you like elephants, I would definitely recommend joining the Elephant Nature Park in Chang Mai. On our trip around the world, my boyfriend and I spent a week on the ‘Journey to Freedom’ […]
