Could you be suffering from FDS? (Fun Deficiency Syndrome)


Happy 5th everyone! If you live in the United States I hope your holiday week-end was light and playful. I’ve got kids, well young adults, visiting from overseas so I’m officially 19 again. I love it! I love it because in typical scorpio fashion my tendency is to be serious. I’ve always found immense satisfaction in studying, contemplative practices and…

Simple Detox : Sip, Scrub & Sweat ( Some Food Too)


Have you been procrastinating doing a spring detox? Could those be the reasons why: • You just don’t know where to start. • You’re afraid of going hungry. • You’ve done a detox before and it was too complicated and/or expensive. • You’re not a “juice person” (Isn’t that the only way to cleanse, you ask?) Except for the first reason, all those apply or have applied to me at some point. For…

Travel Report: Teaching Yoga and Meditation in Kosovo


I recently travelled to Kosovo to teach yoga, meditation and Ayurvedic workshops. You read correctly, Kosovo! Kosovo is north of Greece and south of Hungary, to give you an idea.

How did I end up there? Thanks to a…

Micro-Practices for Your Busy Life


Have you ever felt that all the self-care practices you knew were too time-consuming to stick to? I have.

In part one of this post we looked at the profound wisdom in Gandhi‘s famous words “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” I pointed out that there is only one place where we can apply such wisdom: our everyday life. Indeed, daily life provides us with a gazillion opportunities to embody the qualities we wish to see more plentiful…

Be The Change Blah-Blah-Blah…


It’s not even spring and what a year it’s been already. Unfolding events on the national and global stage are leaving many of us stunned. I’ve been observing increasing levels of anxiety and depression among my clients. Overpowering emotions make it difficult to see a clear way ahead and it’s tempting to wallow in anger or poor-me-mentality. Well, I’d like…

Sit Back, Listen and Relax Deeply (New Guided Relaxation Audio!)


Are you stressed? Research has shown that women experience higher levels of stress than men during the holidays. Will you be gift shopping, meal-planning, decorating, hostessing, looking to make everyone feel good, while looking good!? How do you cope with the pressures coming from all sides?

The Best + Quickest Way Out of Confusion


In my last post I identified a couple of obstacles that often arise when we’re seeking to bring change in our lives. First, the belief that somehow there will come a perfect moment to take action. Usually tomorrow. But as we saw, tomorrow never comes. I also discussed how one decision was all it took to get the ball rolling in a new direction of your…

Maybe you’ve read somewhere that meditating first thing in the morning was the best thing you could do to start your day light and bright. So you’ve been sitting, but really suffering, through 20 minutes of daily morning meditation. Sadly all you’re feeling is your achy back.
