Women’s Retreat 2022: No Boys Allowed

22nd January 2022

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 retreats 2022 guide!

Silent Retreat 2022: the Best Meditation Retreats in the World

7th January 2022

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 you’re finding the idea of meditating on your own and having a spiritual life 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! If you’re college students or young people and think meditation is for old folks, you are so wrong! Many campus ministry offices actually offer silent retreats these days. Getting away from your cell phones and modern world commodities for a few days has amazing benefits!

5th January 2022

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.

Deciding to take the plunge into your first Ayahuasca retreat is a pretty big deal (it’s a very transformative experience), and deciding which retreat to go to is an even bigger one. Some will say let the medicine call you on your path to personal growth, you’ll know when the time is right — and I have to agree. You’ll have many questions, I’m sure. I certainly did when I had my first Ayahuasca experience.

Yoga Teacher Training Retreats 2022: my Recommendations

30th November 2021

Have you become so passionate and dedicated about yoga that you now wish to turn your passion into a career by considering yoga teacher training retreats 2022 courses? I can’t blame you — been there, done that. I did my first time yoga certification retreat in India, back in 2015, and although I took a different path after and did not end up teaching, it was truly a transformative experience. And now I am back at it, doing my second Vinyasa practice YTT at my own pace with High on Yoga in Berlin. I highly recommend anyone to take a yoga teacher training abroad as well as doing a silent retreat and an Ayahuasca retreat at least once in their life to heighten their physical practice!

Getting Away On A Surf Trip? Here Are 7 Things To Prepare

26th November 2021

A surf trip is what you may need for this summer’s holidays. Spending time at the beach with the people you love, playing with the waves, surfing on your favorite board, and getting warm sunshine can make your trip highly refreshing and the most memorable one. Even though surfing is a highly complex sport and requires proper training before you own the waves, once you learn this sport, no other water sport will appeal to you in the way surf trips do. In contrast, if you are a professional, you will know how entertaining it is to ride the waves in the ocean; it’s more likely the balance of your board and the weather that decides how the wind flows the waves. However, before you leave for the trip, you should know about the essential equipment and mandatory accessories for the journey. Here are seven things that you need to take care of before heading for your surf trip.

Vegan Restaurants Montreal: My Favourite

2nd September 2020

vegan and vegetarian friendly restaurants in montreal canada

I took advantage of being back in my old neck of the wood to check out the vegan restaurants Montreal scene and see what was cracking. 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 a competitive level.

My Guide to the Best Vegan Burgers NYC has to offer

27th March 2019

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.
