Last weekend in Zurich we did a workshop with Gurmukh. Oooooh. And Sunday. Sunday was blissful. I came back to “Earth” filled with tremendous amount of energy. Not because Gurmukh spreads energy. She is not magical. But that woman. She knew what she was doing. That kind gracious lady Gurmukh made us dance. She made us move. She made us go crazy. Read More

This week it’s exactly a year ago that I went to Ibiza for Kundalini yoga teacher training. Exactly a year ago my transformational journey started and I realize now – it’s a never ending journey. A thought, which is exciting and discomforting at the same time. Exciting, because every step on this journey inwards is a chance to learn, to get inspired. To get surprised. By your own body. And by your own mind. It is a chance to get closer to something bigger than the previous two, your true self.
Last year started just great. In December 2013 I quit my regular job and started working as a freelancer. I was full of enthusiasm and thought I could have it all. January, February and March were great. I had my assignments. The freedom to work when I wanted. What I wanted. As I wanted. I had time for myself. I finally started a life I was kind of dreaming of.
3d day of my green detox and I enjoy it enormously. Yesterday I cooked so much that I managed to prepare delicious green meals for the next 2 days! I will share all recipes with you soon but for today I will share a superfast lunch. It’s green. It’s tasty. It’s made in a minute. It’s a proper meal. And guaranteed no afternoon energy slump afterwards!!!
After reading this fast recipe you can’t come up with an excuse anymore of not having time for a green meal. For real.
Last week I tried several new tastes and green diet recipes out. With the knowledge I have now I think I can do my green diet without getting very stressed about it. Preparation is the key! You have to buy right stuff on time (easy). Prepare your lunch and dinner maybe already a day before (not so easy). Say no to your lunches and coffees with friends (super heavy)… From yesterday on I committed to my green diet fully. There is no coffee, bread, cheese and sweets for me for the next 11 days. Yikes!
As always my mind is telling me it’s impossible to do it. My body is loving it. And my true self is watching from a neutral distance those two fighting each other.
This week I am wearing a turban. The whole week. Maybe even longer than a week. Will see. As an experiment. Not only when I teach. No. I wear it 24/7. Since the moment I wake up till I go to sleep. I wear it like you wear your underwear. I hope at least. I made it mandatory!
Kundalini comes in different shapes and sizes but most teachers stick to a basic game plan.
There’s a formula, a ritualistic order that the class can follow. It usually starts with what is known as ‘tuning in’. You repeat a mantra, the Golden Chain mantra, to set the space and connect you.
The body as temple is not a poetic metaphor but a sober statement of fact.
The form you inhabit is shakti, consciousness-in-energy form.
You are living in the manifestation of the divine.
The identification of body with the multiverse is the key to causing change in the phenomenal world.
By identifying your body and your reality with the entire macrocosm – and vica versa – both can influence each other.

I met a woman at a party last summer through a mutual friend. She introduced herself as a yoga teacher. Full of enthusiasm, I told her that I started a teacher training to become a yoga teacher too. She asked me what kind of yoga I am going to teach. And I proudly said that I am becoming a Kundalini yoga teacher. She took another sip of her beer and said: “Oh? Okay. Kundalini? So you guys just breathe, right?” And I answered: “Yeah! You’re right. We Breathe!”
