Yoga Teacher Training 2021: Where to go

23rd December 2020

My spiritual journey. Yoga teacher training at Smriti Yoga in Goa, India

Have you become so passionate and dedicated about yoga that you now wish to turn your passion into a career by taking a yoga teacher training? I can’t blame you, been there, done that. I did my yoga instructor training in Goa, India, back in 2015, and although I took a different path after and did not end up teaching, it was truly a transformative experience. I highly recommend anyone to take a yoga teacher training (and a silent retreat!) once in their life!

Women’s Retreat 2020: No Boys Allowed

21st October 2020

women's retreat

Screw men. Haha lol, not really, but just a tiny bit, still. This 2020, all I want is to gather with soul sisters and practice mindfulness away from men in a women’s retreat where I can let my hair down and my inner Wild Woman run free. There’s something extremely empowering and magical with letting your barriers down with other women in a safe space and explore your true potential. Naturally, the most fitting place to do this is in the safe confine of a women’s retreat. So today I wanted to present to you the best women’s retreats in time for 2020.

Vegan Montreal: The best restaurants

2nd December 2019

vegan and vegetarian friendly restaurants in montreal canada

I took advantage of being back in my old neck of the wood to check out all the vegan food near me and see what was happening on the vegan and vegetarian food scene in Montreal. I was super excited to see that most of my old fave vegan restaurants in Montreal were still alive and well, and even more excited to discover that there were quite a few newcomers, making Montreal one of the most vegan-friendly cities I’ve lived in – not far behind my beloved Berlin and upping the vegan restaurants Montreal count to competitive level. Being vegan in Montreal seems to be the hip thing to do right now and I am really not complaining! So without further ado, here is what I think are the best vegan Montreal offerings at the moment! And if you’re after vegetarian restaurants Montreal has you covered too.

Silent Retreat: Finding the Right Meditation Center

18th October 2019

meditation classes

Sitting in stillness for just a few minutes each day can help cope with stress and anxiety, live a more balanced life and enhance relationships, both with oneself and with others. Meditation classes in a dedicated meditation center can be a good place to start if you’re finding the idea of meditating on your own for the first time a little daunting. I personally use Headspace and I love it. If you’ve already been initiated and are ready to try your first ever silent retreat, yaaaassssss!

My Guide to the Best Vegan Burgers NYC has to offer

27th March 2018

best vegan burgers in new york and brooklyn

Vegan. Burgers. NYC. Enough said.

Time in New York is never enough to content me with all of the amazing food it has to offer. I was there on a cheeky mission to eat my way through a New York itinerary of all the Vegan Burgers and, although I reckon I did a semi-decent job following these New York tips (and I have the belly flab to prove it), I still couldn’t sample everything. You can now find the Impossible Burgers in several locations in NYC, but I did give that a miss. Here’s what I managed to stuff my face with while I was there doing some freelance work, however.
