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. Because it’s a relatively new country there are many “firsts” there, and the Sparks Holistic Festival I participated in was no exception. (photos here) The first ever of its kind!

Except for a period of 6 months maybe, during which I found music to be distracting to my own concentration.

You are NOT what you eat.


You’ve probably come across the phrase “You are what you eat”. Ayurveda tells us this is only partly true: we really are what we digest. Even if you eat the best diet of organic, local and seasonal food appropriate for your mind-body type, if you are not digesting all this great food very well then you’re not getting all the…
