Time to set a dot

When we have so many things to do and we don't know anymore what to do first, because everything has to be done, ideally at the same time, and then there are those things that have to be done that might have even more priority but are less fun to do so we postpone...

Working in a relaxed way

Stress doesn't just weaken our immune system and makes us more predisposed to illnesses, but also to making mistakes. In your business mistakes can have severe consequences. Yes, we all are human beings and we will be forgiven for making the one or the other mistake....

The body’s intelligence

It's incredible how intelligent the human body is. It’s always present and it immediately gives us signals if something is out of balance due to stress. The first signals are easy to ignore and most of the time, that's exactly what we do. So usually our body will send...

Oil Pulling

Oil pulling is an ancient Ayurvedic technique to improve oral and dental hygiene. It's known to remove toxins from the mouth and to strengthen teeth, gums and the jaw. I use either organic Coconut oil for this daily morning routine and sometimes I use an organic tooth...

Life’s Reset Button

What do you do when your internet stops working? You go to the router, unplug it, wait for 10 seconds and when you plug it back in it usually works. This moment of unplugging is important in our lives as well. We all need a time out of the constant input of...

Why meditate?

I personally believe that meditation leads us to the next step in human evolution. Our brains developed during the time we lived in caves, when our lives were threatened by sabre-toothed tigers and many other hazards. So our brain is wired to secure our survival and...

Living 3 years on Ibiza

I am sitting on my terrace in the humid heat while writing this, a gentle breeze is doing its best to cool me down every now and then, but to no avail. I hear water splashing and kids screaming. It's summer time. And it's that time of the year when I arrived on Ibiza....

Vinyasa Flow Yoga

On a physical level Yoga liberates you from the knots and tensions from office work, stressful days and automatic unconscious patterns. Yoga is the romantic date with your Ego on a mat where you get to look and sniff at each other. An open and curious encounter, free...

Time for reflection

I'm sitting at the beach to write today's post.. I went for a walk and decided to check out Aquas Blancas, one of my favorite beaches on Ibiza. I love it especially early in the mornings. I used to do some Yoga in the sand, practice handstands and go for a swim.. and...

Radical Yoga

I attended my first Yoga class in 2007. But while so many other Yoga teachers or Yoga doers say they were hooked from the first moment, I wasn't. I was sceptic. At the time I was 24 years old, I spent most of my free time doing Martial Arts and loved the action of...

Don’t be authentic… all the time!

Authenticity is not just a word that's somewhat hard to articulate, to some degree it's also overrated. Being yourself and being who you really are, expressing what ever is within you and being true to that - sure, it has its validity. But before we throw unfiltered...

Instant Life Transformation

Every transformation in life begins with one thing: A doubt. The doubt of what you are thinking about your self, about others or about the world might not be true. Up until I was 17 years old I was convinced that I was ugly. I felt too skinny, my hair was too thin and...

Growing up…

...is not necessarily at trap. It can be a wonderful thing, it just depends on how you create it for yourself. If you trade responsibilities for playfulness instead of integrating both into your life, if routine and the need of security eat up all your freedom, and if...

Island Life P-Review

It's been almost 2 years since I moved here. Not really knowing what will happen I packed my stuff into my car and drove all the way to Ibiza. Many times I heard people say to me that they admire my courage for doing this, but you know, it actually didn't need much. I...

Away from Mass Processing

A lovely client I had recently inspired me to this blog post. She said that she found my website on the internet and even though she is staying in a hotel where they offer massages she wanted a more personal experience. So she contacted me and she said that it was...

Learn to relax

It can be quite a challenge to relax. Even if our bodies lie still on the ground it doesn't mean we are relaxed. And sometimes we even have a hard time lying still on the floor. There is an itch here, a little tension there and the mind seems to get louder the...

Green green green…

Wow, I think this has been the longest break between writing blog posts since I started about 4 years ago. Saying that summer was too busy to have time to write would be a lie. Yes, it was busy but "I don't have time" always just means "I didn't want to take the time"...

What is Yoga…?

Yoga is in everyone's mouth, behind every corner and there is hardly anyone out there who isn't doing Yoga or who doesn't know someone who has done Yoga. There are so many different styles of Yoga and even more interpretations. So I can only talk about what Yoga is...

The importance of relaxation

There are four main factors that have a direct impact on the health of our body, mind and soul: 1. Breathing: How deep and conscious we breathe 2. Nutrition: What and how (much) we eat and drink 3. Relaxation: How much stress we have in our life and if we find time to...

Liver & Gallbladder

The wood element is the expression of our individuality. Suppressing who we are has an effect on the organs of the wood element – the liver and the gallbladder. Often they are also called "the general" (liver) and "the chief officer" (gallbladder), sometimes they are...

The Wood Type

In spring nature awakens and grows almost explosively in all directions, it’s shining in all colours and shapes. In no other time of the year we experience such a dynamic expansion. This also lies in the nature of the wood type. However, so much concentrated energy...

Finding balance within

We all unite the five elements within us, in our personalities, as well as physically. Some elements, however, are more distinct than others. Categorising bears the “danger” of stereotyping, at the same time it can give us a better understanding of who we, or who...

Yin & Yang and The Five Elements

Once upon a time some people in old China sat around all day and night and did nothing else than observing the continual coming and going of days, seasons and life, within and without. Ok, maybe they didn't sit around all the time, maybe sometimes they did something...

Comfortable Illusions

The past few weeks I have been lazy with writing, not because nothing exciting happened in my life, neither because I had no experiences to share that helped me grow. Actually, life has been quite crazy, too crazy to write about in a simple blog post. It would fit...

Welcome Training

The meaning of the word “welcome” is “gladly received”, “acceptable” and even “appreciated”. The German word “Willkommen” comes from: “Came, according to (my) will/wish” Sometimes we get into uncomfortable situations from which we just want to get out of as quickly as...

Breakfast variations…

The past weeks I have eaten muesli for breakfast, almost everyday. I just varied the fruits and milk (rice, spelt, and almond milk) however, since I read this article about rice milk, I decided to no longer buy it. Every few weeks they discover new things that are bad...

11/11/14 – 11:11…

Thanks to my beautiful friend Lisa, I am sitting here right now, writing this blog post. Only after chatting 5 minutes with her, I have come to realize that I have been avoiding to live what's really and truly me: being a life coach. Everything else I have done over...

Letting go…

Letting go sucks. It hurts and those ups and downs, and that back and forth is really exhausting. The back and forth between knowing that it's over and the hopes for another chance. The last time I had to let go was one of the hardest times of my life. Well, I guess...

The day I became a burglar…

The business around happiness

Our ego believes if we get what we want, then we are happy. And our egos might be satisfied indeed, but usually that kind of happiness fades as quickly as it came. As soon as we see another child with an even more exciting toy, we want that one and the circle repeats....

Sunday is “Retreat Day”

When I returned to Vienna, after my almost 3 month trip through Thailand, I reserved Sundays for myself. I created an all-day-appointment in my calendar, repeating each week, named "Retreat Day". Those days I kept free from work, appointments and obligations as much...

Good-Morning-Smoothie

Sometimes when I wake up, I feel weird. And that seems to be the best word that describes my emotional state. It's neither good, nor bad. It has nothing to do with the night before, nor is it related to my dreams. Today was one of those days. I went to bed quite...

“Foodism” – A new religion?

I am one of the "lucky people" who can eat whatever and whenever they want without gaining much weight, so for a long time I didn't pay attention to whether I ate healthy or not. I loved meat and sugar (not in combination 😉 ) and I ate a lot of it. When I had a...

About relaxation & healing

I must admit that I often felt a bit disappointed after a massage or shiatsu treatment, when I received the feedback of my client saying that (s)he is now relaxed. Something within me always thought “What? Just relaxed? Not more than that?” Maybe I expected them to...

The Meaning of Life

When I started to watch this video the first time I quickly turned it off again.. I thought “Pffff... what a freak. I can't watch this until the end.” After I stumbled across the video two more times I thought “Ok, well, let's give it another try.” And I am...

It is what it is. Says who?

I had a dream. Last night. Another one as Martin Luther King, however, I just understood its main message, and I wanted to share it with you. In this dream I was in Paris with my Dad. I had just moved there and I didn't know anyone yet. I was scared and I was sad...

life is a journey…
