The Best Pilates Retreats

I'm not saying taking up Pilates or going on pilates retreats will change your life, but hear me out… I am constantly striving for better balance and sustainability — in what I eat, how I move, how I dress, how I work, and how I socialize. Because the reality is I tend to overdo things a little bit. Mindful yoga retreats are great for a reset when things have gone out of whack, but…

So you’ve decided you want to embrace ancient Shamanic plant medicines by heading to an Ayahuasca retreat in 2022 but don’t know where to start? You’ve come to the right place.

Some will say let the medicine call…

Planning a Detox Retreat? Here are my Recommendations

Cooped up at home the past few months and feeling just a tad cabin-fever-y – has resulted in me becoming an expert at virtual travel and travel journalling. With Google as my partner in crime, I have been planning city breaks, figuring out the best spots for a detox retreat or a wellness journey, and to go off the grid, and even trawling through my own archives to re-live some of my favourite…

My Best Yoga Retreats Europe Guide

Summer is almost here! 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…

Your yoga Retreats Koh Phangan Guide

It’s a shame that Koh Phangan has a rap to certain only for the Full Moon Party. People from all over the world flock to the Gulf of Thailand to this pristine island to pretty much ruin it, ruin the peace, ruin the environment, and disrespect the locals. If you think I’m exaggerating, watch Trouble in paradise on Youtube. I first came to Koh Phangan a few years ago not knowing what to expect,…

Yoga Retreat Bali 2022: Finding the Best Retreats

The beautiful island of Bali has become known in the health-minded sphere to be an incredible location for all things spirituality, wellness, decadent spa treatments, veganism, palm tree house galore, and of course yoga.

Women’s Spiritual Retreats 2022: No Boys Allowed

Screw men. Haha lol, not really, but just a tiny bit, still. This 2022, all I want is to get away from everyday life, gather in small groups 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 my best women’s…

Yoga Retreat Morocco: Where To Go

I recently got back from a magical birthday trip to Morocco. It was fabulous — the accommodation, traditional Moroccan cuisine, hospitality, traditional culture, my local guide to the Sahara desert, the desert camp, just everything. Plus, there are many direct flights from Europe, making it an easy destination to get to. So for my next yoga retreat Morocco is definitely on the agenda. For years…

Silent Retreat 2022: the Best Meditation Retreats in the World

Sitting in stillness for just a few minutes each day can help cope with stress and anxiety, live a more balanced life, stay in the present moment, reset your brain function, and enhance relationships, both with a personal relationship with oneself and with others — to name just a few of the benefits of meditation. Meditation classes in a dedicated meditation center can be a good place to start if…

Ayurveda Courses: The Best Ayurveda Retreats

Ayurveda and yoga go hand in hand as two independent but intertwined systems that can lead to not just greater wellbeing and good health, but a greater understanding of yourself too. Quite honestly, if you are looking for a full body, mind, health overhaul, I can think of nothing better than treating yourself to Ayurveda courses. In case you don't know, Ayurveda is the traditional medicinal…

Yoga Retreats in USA: Where to Go

The US has some of the best yoga teachers and the best yoga studios in the world… so it makes sense that it also has some of the best yoga retreats too! Okay, fine, retreats in Europe are pretty incredible too… and let’s not forget Thailand or Costa Rica either. But the time has definitely come for me to share what yoga retreats in USA have to offer. Think East Coast forests, the deserts of…

What is Tantra Yoga and Tantra Retreat Recommendations

Yoga is more than just asana, and that’s why I make an effort to read yoga books and watch yoga movies to deepen my knowledge about the rich cultures of this practice. For a while now, I’ve been curious to learn more about the philosophy and practices of Tantra yoga. So I know what you’re thinking. Tantra yoga = sex. Bendy, esoteric, mind-blowing sex that lasts for hours. Well, maybe. But…

The Best 2022 Couples Retreat Experiences

Couples who travel together stay together - as the old saying goes. Although I'm not quite a prime example of that myself. So how about going on a retreat for couples, like a couples meditation retreat together? Not only does a couple holiday allow you to create some amazing memories during uninterrupted time with your other half, but it's also the perfect opportunity to increase…

Yoga Retreat Thailand — Where to go?

The Yoga Retreat Thailand trend is here to stay. And escaping to yoga retreats in Thailand mid-Winter is the perfect solo adventure. Dreaming of Thailand, sizzling street food and the smell of chili in the air, bustling night markets and beautiful beaches? I sure as hell am. I think it’s safe to say Thailand evokes more or less the same few idyllic things for everyone. But one thing that’s…

Yoga Retreat India: Where to Go

Ask any hardcore traveller what destination left a deep imprint into their heart, and India has got to be one of the most mentioned countries. Rich of vibrant traditions, India can be experienced through its festivals, talking with the locals, and eating gastronomic feasts next to the cows along bustling streets. But as far as I’m concerned, one of the best ways to experience the country is…

Thoughts on my Vipassana Meditation Retreat

If someone had told me a few months ago that I would be voluntarily enrolling myself to sit cross-legged on the floor, without moving, 10 hours a day for 7 days in a Buddhist monastery - in complete silence - I would have chuckled in your face and told you that you were mistaking me for someone else. Photo courtesy of Wat Kow Tahm Until a series of events led me to get acquainted with…

The Best Digital Nomad Visa For Remote Workers

One of the hardest things about life as a remote worker is navigating the various digital nomad visa options for different countries. Each destination has its own rules and regulations regarding the amount of time you can stay and the work you’re allowed to do while traveling. This has resulted in many nomads jumping regularly between countries for a visa run and in order to live and work around…

What is Angamardana?

I've been on a mission recently to break out of my yoga practice plateau. You know — where suddenly you hit a wall in your practice, or worse yet, things you could do a month ago suddenly become impossible. This is not my first time at the yoga plateau-rodeo, and in my efforts to keep my sanity intact and find a way out of this rut, I came across angamardana — and my curiosity was peaked.…

With a deep understanding of yoga as both a practitioner and more recently a teacher, dive into my blog posts from both sides of the studio. LATEST POSTS

Find Your Perfect Riad in Marrakech

Not too long ago, I was lucky enough to spend my birthday in a blissful riad in Marrakech. My entire stay in the Red City was incredible, but it is the magnificent riad I am still dreaming about. With a touch of the winter blues kicking in, I have been spending rather a lot of time googling riads in Marrakech planning my next fantasy trip. I have stayed in some pretty boogie places in my…

My Yoga Teacher Training in Berlin at High on Yoga

I’d been wanting to do a second yoga teacher training since moving to Berlin to fully immerse myself into what had been my lifesaver since my arrival. I couldn’t quite figure out the best way to go about it or which school to pick. Then I started practicing with High on Yoga, and it felt like the perfect fit: the studio teaches intense sequences heavily inspired by Ashtanga and I felt like I had…

Yoga Teacher Training Europe 2022 Guide

My first yoga teacher training was in India in 2015, not only was it an amazing way to deepen my yoga practice and learn about anatomy and yoga philosophy, but it was an incredible journey of self-discovery, and I met some truly special people there… a time and people which led to me exploring the beaches of Goa, healing from some pretty devastating heartache, learning Thai massage in a hill…

Your Ultimate Holiday to Marrakech Guide

A holiday to Marrakech is like no other — it’s easy to either love or hate. I personally absolutely loved my Marrakech holidays. The pink city’s beautiful and historic architecture, the friendly and funny yet sometimes challenging locals (especially the youths, who are keen to lead you on and make you believe you've lost your ways), and the exotic sensory overload make it an unforgettable holiday…

Surya Namaskar for Beginners: Getting Started with Yoga

Learning the Surya Namaskar steps and beginning with yoga can feel overwhelming — there are so many amazing teachers, studios, online yoga courses, and, if your budget permits, IRL yoga retreats to learn the basics. But I honestly think the best, most accessible, welcoming — not to mention the cheapest — place to start with yoga for beginners, is at home by following the good ol’ Surya Namaskar…

Eight Limbs of Yoga: What are They?

The world of yoga philosophy can be daunting. I love me a yoga book and yoga movie as a way to learn more about this glorious practice and tradition. But I will say that when it comes to yoga philosophy, it’s full of thousands of years worth of different schools and lineages, matter bending metaphysics, and some pretty far out (not entirely helpful for 21st-century living) ideas. But if there…

Best Gifts Ideas for Your Spiritual Friends

Looking for different gifts for spiritual people or family member in your life but don’t know where to start? Not to worry, I certainly understand the difficulty of finding a variety of gifts for spiritual friends who may not be all too interested in material goods. So in order to help you out, I’ve put together this handy guide to the best spirituality gifts that are sure to please.…

My Stay at Riad Kheirredine Marrakech

Out of the many things that can make or break a holiday, your choice of accommodation is in my view one of the biggest factors. And if you find yourself in the boisterous and fun city that is Marrakech, trust me when I say you’ll want yourself a little oasis to call home at the end of a busy day out. While on my recent trip to Marrakech, I fell in love with an intimate boutique hotel called Riad…

Can you go to the Blue Lagoon Naked?

If you’ve been reading my articles about spas around the world, you might have noticed some important things. If you haven’t — newsflash: I seem to have taken a liking to getting buck naked in public. I mean, who doesn’t? Right? Righhhhhhttttt? Anyone? Well, ok, fine. Today, for a change, let me tell you about this one time in Iceland when I did not in fact get naked at the spa. It does happen,…

The Best Yoga Movies to Learn More About Yoga

One of my favorite ways to learn more about something is to watch a documentary about it. I’m a visual person, so the movie format is my best friend and a great way to study the origins of modern yoga for me, plus it’s MUCH quicker than reading sacred books (I do love me a good yoga book, though). Yoga movies and spiritual movies have been an essential source for teaching me more about this rich…

What is Massoga? Everything You Need to Know

I was innocently scrolling through my Instagram feed the other day when something called Massoga caught my eye… So, admittedly the algorithm knows me well, I’m targeted constantly by ads and accounts for general yoga things from fancy asana to cute leggings, but this was different. This account showed someone lounging over a bolster and propped up by yoga blocks as they had their back and neck…

Yoga Asana Series: Gomukhasana aka Cow Face Pose

Sanskrit Term: GOMUKHASANA = COW FACE POSE Go = Cow Mukha = Face Asana = pose (pronunciation: go-moo-KAHS-anna) Why You Should Practice Gomukhasana If you are looking for some juicy hip opening action coupled with a deep shoulder stretch, look no further than the nice stretch that is Gomukhasana — it is such a great pose! This seated yoga posture is a more difficult pose than some…

The Chakras Explained

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…

Favourite Fitness Influencers + how to Become an Influencer

Wellness and fitness influencers have been popping all over the internet in the last few years. They’re promoting a healthy lifestyle, sharing healthy recipes and exercise tips, and making you want to jump off of your sofa and out of your pajama bottoms and get in the best shape of your life. So you’ve decided: that’s it, you want to know how to become an influencer too. Because let’s face it:…

Self Love Affirmations to Change Your Life

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…

The Best Mindfulness Quotes for Inner Calm

Falling in love with yoga was easy... learning to love meditation and mindfulness was a MUCH rockier journey. But ever since the daily meditations at my YTT in India, my Vipassana retreat, and my Ayahuasca experience, mindfulness has become an integral practice for me, and mindfulness quotes have been guiding lights along the way, as well as self-love affirmations. If you are looking for your…

My Ayahuasca Experience

I wasn’t sure whether or not I wanted to write about my Ayahuasca experience because it is so personal and I don’t want to build expectations. But since many of you have landed here in search of recommendations, I figured it could be helpful — or at the very least, mildly therapeutic — for me to share. The Ayahuasca ceremony I chose was heard along the grapevine and honestly, I would rather…

The Best Surf Camp for All Levels

There’s really nothing like a surf camp. Spending your days at an oceanside paradise, hitting the waves, relaxing in the sun, then winding down with a yoga class or bbq on the beach with other travellers. Surf camps are dedicated beach resorts that offer inclusive surf lessons, coaching and equipment rental. If you’re a complete beginner, a surfing camp is a great place to get started…

From Chania Beaches to Loutro: My Crete itinerary

I picked the island of Crete a little randomly — the flights were cheap, I needed a holiday, it wasn’t awfully far from Berlin, the Chania weather sounded like just what I needed, the gazillion Chania beaches were just the ticket, this little town called Loutro seemed too good to be true, and a Chania car rental cost peanuts. It do be a done deal, I thought. My friend Olga and I decided to wing…

Shakti Mat: What on Earth are They for?

Here’s a little something about me — I love me a new wellness trend. Whenever I discover something new in the world of health and wellness, from celery juice cleanses all the way to shamanic plant medicines, I have to try it out. So when I started hearing more and more about the shakti mat — also known as acupressure mat — which has exploded in popularity over the last few years, I had to…

It Takes Two, Baby: Yoga Poses for Two People

Friends, couples, random people you meet in the park — there’s no best way than the bonding experience of partner yoga poses. And with a second lockdown looming and people looking for things to do at home, these yoga poses for two people will give you an afternoon of fun and a good stretch. These are also great couple yoga poses for those looking for a new bonding experience. Get yer…

The problem with Kuta Lombok

I arrived in Kuta Lombok Indonesia full of expectations, after hearing so many tales of unspoiled Southeast Asia paradise from friends and trusted acquaintances. When I go somewhere I'm this hyped up about, reality doesn't always match the expectations: it happened in the Perhentian Islands, it happened in Hawaii and it nearly happened on first time in Koh Phangan and in the Gili Islands,…

What is Jamu? And a Jamu recipe

As you might have guessed from the number of blog posts that are already piled up here about Bali, I absolutely love it. A LOT. And for many reasons. The one I’ll be discussing today is Jamu, this traditional Indonesian medicinal drink that looks a bit like mango juice and that you might have seen popping up on several warung menus or in baskets on the head of the Jamu Gendong, these women…

Thoughts on learning the Ashtanga Primary Series

I knew that learning the Ashtanga Primary Series was going to be a challenge. I knew because I had already tried and failed not that long ago, at a time where I wasn't mentally prepared. I have to say, I am quite impressed by my wingspan here. One thing you may not know about me, if you aren’t so close to me or haven’t been a reader of many years, is that the last few years were the…

Empowering Yoga Quotes to Feed your Soul

Yoga has been for me so much more than a sport. As my practice has deepened over the last ten or so years since I started taking some online yoga class and reading books about yoga, at some point, something shifted and yoga took on a profound purpose in my life, and I am so thankful for this. One of my favorite yoga quotes comes from Patanjali and goes: “A mind free from all disturbances is…

What is Kriya Yoga?

The technique of Kriya Yoga is an ancient practice that was revived in the East in 1861 when Mahavatar Babaji taught the technique to his disciple Lahiri Mahasaya. It was then brought to the West in 1920 by Paramahansa Yogananda and popularised in his 1946 book ‘Autobiography of a Yogi’ — which is often cited as one of the most important spiritual books of the 20th Century. But what exactly is…

Yoga Asana Series: Trikonasana aka Triangle pose

Full name: UTTHITA TRIKONASANA = Extended Triangle Pose         Utthita = Extended (pronunciation: oo-TEE-tah)         Trikona = Three angle or triangle (pronunciation: trik-con)         Asana = Pose (pronunciation: AHS-anna) Why You Should Practise Trikonasana Triangle pose is a foundational standing yoga pose; once you get…

My Favourite Books About Yoga

As someone who has read countless books about yoga and watched several yoga movies, I know all too well the positive effect that they can have on your practice and on your daily life. Yoga is so much more than simply taking classes. It’s about changing our outlook on life and boosting our physical and mental wellbeing. It’s developing harmony between the mind, body and environment. And…

The Best Online Yoga Courses Right Now

I (re)discovered yoga in the midst of an internal personal crisis while far far away and very lonely. Incidentally, as I was backpacking through South-East Asia and moving constantly, doing all sorts of online yoga courses, reading yoga books, and watching yoga movies were my favourite to do on the go out of my hotel rooms. They gave me tools to cope better and find the inner strength to push…

The best online yoga teacher training right now

Having some extra time on your hands? Did you know online yoga teacher training courses were a thing? That’s right, Yoga Alliance recently approved fully remotely-obtained YTTs as accepted for registration with them (which is a prerequisite to be able to teach in the first place). Since it’s a relatively new business, the prices are still super low when compared to other YTTs and an amazing…

Best Yoga Teacher Training India: Where to go

I'm such a fan of yoga for boosting the mind-body connection and helping me achieve way more in life, that I hardly know where to start describing my experience and continuing journey. One place I do know where to begin is with my YTT in India, where a whole new world of knowledge, understanding, and compassion opened up to me. The best yoga teacher training India courses will teach you to spread…

CBD Oil for Anxiety: my Experience

I’ve been a big fan of the health benefits of CBD oil for over a year now. With a combination of meditation, yoga plus CBD oil, I’ve tamed my anxiety, regulated my sleeping pattern, and got through some pretty nerve-wracking life changes (and a surgery) these past few months. CBD is certainly making the rounds as a buzzword amongst the health crowd at the moment – CBD vape oil, CBD isolate, CBD…

What is Eco Travel and Why Should You Care?

As I write this I am preparing to go on my first international trip in a verrrrry long time (thanks coronavirus!). Although taking a forced break from travel for the first half of 2020 has been challenging, in some ways I’m grateful because it has allowed me to reflect on what is eco-travel, how my eco travel practices are, and how much more environmentally sustainable they could be.…

Goa Beaches: which one to pick?

The reason why I picked Patnem Beach out of the gazillion available Goa beaches was mostly that I had been there before and was too lazy to research something else. Maybe not the wisest decision as there are so many other beaches in Goa I could have visited, but what can I say, I was flustered and wanted convenience. Goa is relatively small, so if you have a long enough holiday, you maybe be able…

A Little Guide to Patnem Beach

There’s very little to do in Patnem Beach aside from eating, sipping on fruity drinks, swimming in the sea, reading a book, watching the sunset, or doing yoga if that’s what you’re into. And rinse. And repeat. And that’s exactly what brought me there for the second time in a few years. Maybe I could have done a little extra research on the best beaches of Goa, but oh well. Goa is famous…

Cool yoga poses everyone should do

If you come here regularly or follow me on my social media, you probably know that yoga takes a very big role in my life. But beyond the fancy headstands (and don't be shy from trying them! check out those inversions for beginners) and strange contortions I sometimes photograph myself into, yoga established itself as a daily practice in my life when I started backpacking through South East Asia…

Is Indian food vegan? Bloggers answer

Is Indian food vegan aside from vegan curry? I think a lot of people believe India is super vegan-friendly. The short answer is: not always. Have you heard of ghee? The ubiquitous clarified butter that makes an appearance in so much vegan Indian food? Yeah, not vegan. Indians are also quite fond of dairy (and don't understand that it's not vegan!), something I find mind-boggling given how much…

Vegan Bangkok: where to eat now

Bangkok is possibly the city I commuted through the most during my time in Asia. I love Bangkok. I love the food in Bangkok. And I love how vegan Bangkok is - just search for the little red on yellow “jay” flag at the entrance of cafeteria-style vegan food Bangkok Buddhist eateries. These are convenient and cheap and sometimes delicious, but their emphasis isn’t on health and great ingredients –…

My 2 Day Juice Cleanse Experience

The (vegan) cavewoman in me always worries about starvation. She never wanted to do a juice cleanse ever. But again she also never wanted to meditate in silence. She worries there will not be enough food and never leaves home without a gazillion snacks. As a health-minded person though, doing a juice cleanse has always been on my radar, but thanks to the aforementioned, I’ve always been a little…

My Balinese Home Spa with Utama Spice

Bali. The island of the Gods. A feast of colors, culture, beauty and devout faith. With such beauty all around such as the Jatiluwih rice terraces, it’s no wonder Bali boasts such a rich tradition of beauty and spa rituals whose names alone evoke the most exotic and luscious of pampering experiences: boreh, lurlur, temu-temu, avocado cream bath, spice bath - I could just picture myself in one…

The best vegetarian & Vegan Restaurants in Koh Phangan

Koh Phangan swallowed me whole yet again with its beautiful vistas, beaches, yoga, food and everything that comes with it. This was my fourth time on the island and it was as good as ever. You can read the story of how I fell in love with the place here. For now though, let's talk vegan Koh Phangan! (And right this way if you want to read about the best beaches of Koh Phangan). Most…

A Quick Guide to Goa Holidays in India

First there was the idea that I was perhaps going to hate India. Then there was the planning to cram as much of the best places to visit in India into ten days to decide whether or not I liked it. Following that was the realisation that, if I was going to decide if I liked India, a manic 10-day tour of Varanasi, Delhi, the whole of Rajasthan and Mumbai after my Goa Holidays was possibly not going…

Sustainable Travelling Through Meditation

2015 was a year of great changes for me: in the span of just a few short months, I lost a family member as well as my long-term relationship, amongst other things. Travelling became something that I both dreaded to do by myself and needed to do all at the same time, and I, fortunately, came to the simple realization that what I needed above all was to change how I travelled. So I swapped my…

Where to stay: Sumahan on the Water Istanbul

Istanbul is a wonderful but hectic city and offered me several amazing experiences.I arrived straight from Bangkok after a 40 hour commute, already frazzled by the pulse of the Big Mango. I was looking for a bit of a retreat on my first few days, a place where I could lay my head in peace while curing my jetlag. I found just that and much more at the beautiful Sumahan on the Water, a boutique…

Where to stay: The Sanctuary Thailand

Making a swift exit from Koh Phangan’s full moon party via longtail boat made me feel a little bit like the James Bond of all party pooper. And I liked it. #noregret That is because I had a date with the divine at a yoga resort aptly called The Sanctuary Thailand, a health and wellbeing haven hidden in a gorgeous secluded cove a mere five minute boat ride (yet feeling like miles away) from the…

Surviving a breakup on the road

I nearly quit everything to go home two months ago. And when I say nearly, I mean that I actually purchased a flight from Bangkok to Montreal and I was two days away from boarding the plane when I came to my senses and aborted this crazy plan. I was about to give up my current life I’ve worked so hard for, my dreams of becoming location independent, and this blog I have put all this work into but…
