Women’s Spiritual Retreats 2021: No Boys Allowed

25th October 2021

Screw men. Haha lol, not really, but just a tiny bit, still. This 2021, all I want is to get away from everyday life and gather with soul sisters and practice mindfulness away from men in a women retreat where I can let my hair down and my inner Wild Woman run free, sprinkled with healthy eating and, free time, physical activity, and a meditation practice. This is the women’s spiritual retreats 2021 edition!

Berlin is not only the cultural and political capital of Germany but it’s also become one of the European Union’s most popular tourist destinations and a central hub for creatives, as well as the vegan capital of Europe. So, as you can imagine, finding unfurnished apartments for rent in Berlin aren’t the easiest of endeavors, but as far as European capitals or large European cities go, it is still somewhat affordable, and rental prices are more than fair — so that part is good news. Plus, it’s relatively straightforward to obtain a residence permit. Are you on the hunt for an unfurnished apartment? I’ve gathered a few tools to help you navigate the property market.

Why You Should Practice Gomukhasana

This seated yoga posture is a more difficult pose than some other yoga poses, but the general improvements in your hip and shoulder mobility has so many yoga benefits from your Surya Namaskar to inversions.

The Chakras Explained

5th October 2021

I remember the first time I took a deep dive into the Chakras. It was during my YTT, and my yoga philosophy teacher pulled up a chart of all the chakra colors and meanings, the different symbols of the chakras, and even got out her collection of chakra crystals and stones… and I spent the next hour trying not to roll my eyes or guffaw out loud. The chakras explained all sounded like New Age hippie mumbo jumbo to me.

Being vegan is so much more than simply what you eat. It’s a lifestyle choice that involves living more sustainably and being more conscious about the products you consume.

Stop saying that Summer is over! Kids are finally back in school, beaches are at long last quiet — it’s time to plan a yoga retreat Europe vacation! I know many of you (including myself) often look towards South-East Asia (Thailand and Sri Lanka are high up on my list) or South America for a yoga retreat, but when the budget is tight and the time is short, there’s no need to go too far afield, as there are amazing options for a retreat in Europe. And while some countries may seem more appropriate than others for a relaxing yoga retreat Europe holiday because of their proximity to beautiful beaches or nature, I’ve found that there are fantastic options literally everywhere for daily yoga classes, and meditation, especially for a short break.

Traveling as a Vegan: Up & Coming Destinations

19th September 2021

Traveling as a vegan is certainly more challenging than for those who don’t have dietary restrictions. But if you’re not an especially fussy eater, there is almost always something to eat on your vegan travels. It might not be exciting, and sometimes that’s OK. Sure, it’s better to have choices but that’s the trade-off one makes while traveling as a vegan. Because of this challenge, many vegan travelers now regularly choose destinations to visit based on their vegan-friendliness and range in the choice of types of food.

Self Love Affirmations to Change Your Life

14th September 2021

Self love affirmations are a powerful way to change your inner and outer life… and if that statement (or should I say that self affirmation) makes you feel kinda weird, well, you’re not alone. I do a lot to keep myself fuelled up physically, psychologically, and spiritually — a wholesome vegan diet, a daily yoga practice and a regular meditation practice. But the idea of taking five minutes out of my day to say nice things to myself in front of a mirror used to make me feel cringey-anxious-inauthentic… so I started to ask myself why? And so began my self love journey.
