The Best Yoga Movies to Learn More About Yoga

11th May 2020

yoga movies

One of my favourite ways to learn more about something is to watch a documentary about it. I’m a visual person so the movie format works well for me, plus it’s MUCH quicker than reading a book. Yoga movies have been an essential source for teaching me more about this rich tradition and amazing practice, that has become such a central part of my life. So many interesting movies about yoga have been made in the last few years, and quite a few of them are available on Netflix. There are a few older ones that I think are worth watching too, and although some are a little bit harder to get hold of, if you are interested in learning more about the yoga tradition I have found them to be super informative.

Online Yoga Teacher Training

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). Since it’s a relatively new business, the prices are still super low when compared to other YTTs and an amazing opportunity for yogis on a budget. The catch is you have to finish it before June 30th, 2020! So get on it!

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 course 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 through. I don’t know about you, but I can certainly draw some parallels with that’s happening right now.

Yoga Retreat Thailand — Where to go?

9th February 2020

The Yoga Retreat Thailand trend is here to stay. And escaping for 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.

Escaping for yoga retreats in Thailand mid-Winter is a great solo adventure and the perfect way to experience those magical holiday vibes you’ve been craving, but with a restful and invigorating twist of a health holiday, you won’t forget.

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!

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 feast next to the cows along bustling street. But as far as I’m concerned, one of the best ways to experience the country is through one of the numerous India Yoga Retreats.

yoga quotes

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 course, at some point, something shifted, and I am so thankful for this. One of my favourite yoga quotes comes from Patanjali and goes: “A mind free from all disturbances is yoga”. If you think yoga is just Asana practice, then I invite you to meditate on these inspiring yoga quotes, what some yoga movies, and keep practising.
