All paths ultimately lead to the same place, and that place is inside ofyou. It has been there all along. The only thing you need is the time, support, and inspiration to discover it. Once you do, you never lose that connection. To return to that place of peace and unconditional love, you simply need… Continue reading Thoughts to ponder
I’ve been struggling with my internal dialog lately. Insecurities, lack of self love, negative self talk, doubts and negative beliefe systems from the past. Don’t get me wrong, all this is beautiful. It means progress. It means growth. It means personal expansion. It means, after all, suffering too. I‘ve been so involved in so many… Continue reading More money = more healing?
You don’t always need a plan. I didn’t have one when I started to travel 3 years ago, I still don’t have one now. A plan is something so rock solid, so limited and so closed off that right there, outside of the plan, life runs by waving around with one solid opportunity after the… Continue reading Do you have a plan?
We’re all acting the best with the resources available to us at every moment. Your partner, your mother and your siblings always act with what’s available to them in the moment. It’s always their story, their feelings, their resources, not your. They do the best they can to handle the present moment, sometimes coming not… Continue reading Emotional resources
I seek my soul within. Taking time to wash my wounds in salty waters, cover old scars with fine sand and burn out the past with tropic sun on my skin. For the first time in my life, I take away the succeeding. The doing. The pressure. Taking a break from the life I wanted… Continue reading Soul seeking
Hey there everybody! As most of you know, my name is Katharina. What some of you might not know, is that I am a Yoga & Breathwork instructor. My breath work practices take you on a journey of gentle rhythms between the subtle and yet powerful flow of the breath intertwined with body movement which… Continue reading Conscious living trek, Nepal
It's only Me and I. In sweet, soft stillness in velvet, tender darkness we meet, caressing each other's skin with gentle, timid strokes full of insecurities. Where are you?, asks the Me the I, but the I doesn't know the answer. What are you?, asks the I the Me, but the Me doesn't understand. How… Continue reading Me and I
I might change the title to searching presence. Lately, I've been a lot in my head spinning around money, success, relationships, my lifestyle, and my choices. Being triggered by an environment mainly based on looks and typical success stories that don't leave much space for actual happiness created by ones true expression but contentment created… Continue reading Finding presence
We are the origin of life, closely connected to the source and the source itself. We carry the seeds of creating life, the physical ability, and mental strength to create something new, the origin of pure power and balancing force in the universe. That’s why men seek to control us. That’s why men fear women… Continue reading Women are the source of life
A peaceful and quiet place. Maybe the beach, maybe a rooftop. The only sound comes from birds and the wind softly touching the palm trees. It's early in the morning and the sun is just about to rise, touching and caressing my skin with the first warm sunbeams making their way down to earth. The… Continue reading Meditation sucks
As I wrote in one of my previous posts, I recently started my 200h breath work instructor training. Coming from a Pranayama background, I always knew the breath was kind of important. Kind of regulating the nervous system. Kind of key for a balanced, strong, and steady practice. One year ago, when I went through… Continue reading Breathe your fat of
I am alive, and I am healthy. I have a job. I have food every day. I have a roof over my head wherever I go. I was blessed with education. I have clean water coming out of the tab. I can travel wherever I choose to. I have time and space to take care… Continue reading Women on fire
When was the last time you actually noticed your breath? Noticed how deep it flows? How fast it goes? If you breathe into the belly or into the chest? What does you breath touch inside of you? As I am starting my 200h breath work instructor teacher training, my practice of conscious breathing expands in… Continue reading How do you breathe?
In my classes, we tap into the power of our deepest breath. In nowadays society we barely ever get the chance to take a deep, relieving breath into the belly. Stress, pollution, noise, and an unbalanced lifestyle lead to a shallow breath coming from the chest, not the belly. When we are tensed up by stress,… Continue reading Breath & Movement
And the darkness explodes, pours dark tar over a pure heart, slowing down my rhythm of life with an odor of ugly decay. Gives me that feeling I don’t want to feel, gives me that sensation I don’t want to sense, gives me that touch where I don’t want to be touched. And those claws… Continue reading Where goes the sadness when it leaves?
The inner dialog is what determines your level of happiness. A few years ago, the way I was talking to myself was more than destructive. I used to put my entire focus on the things I couldn’t do: not losing weight, not living a fulfilling relationship, not being able to travel, not leaving the life… Continue reading About inner dialogs
No one is going to come and set the world around exactly like you want it to be. No one will rescue from your own shadows as your heart ist filled with sadness and despair. No one will pull you out of the hole you managed to get yourself into. No one will get you… Continue reading You‘re the creator
You’ve probably heard the saying: yoga is not about touching your toes, but about what you learn on the way down. Yep, I agree. What I am learning on the way down is that the breath is the bridge in between body and mind.Connecting the physical with the spiritual, joining muscles and nervous system, uniting… Continue reading Steady practice
México - Nepal Moving from down to up, from the ocean to the mountains, from hot to cold reflects the polarities we are all dealing with everyday. Isn't it that what makes life so beautiful, the constant ups and downs, the tension in between the two, the experience of one holding allowing the other to… Continue reading Move
It's been a while since I introduced myself. Hey there, my name is Katharina, inspired designer, heartfelt yoga teacher, passionate writer, trained nutrition coach, and adventurous digital nomad full of love for animals, nature, arts, and the simple beauty life holds at any moment. Childhood I was born in Germany, Fürth, on 08.08.1996, blessed with… Continue reading About me
Presence is my greatest drug. Not giving away power to too much or too little. Taste it, smell it, see it, sense it, touch it, perceive it, be the food, be the water, be the moment. See, fully, and be what you see, feel what you see, be the eye and the object, the skin… Continue reading Thoughts to ponder
Ayurveda is the traditional system of medicine in Hinduism. And there the judgment already starts. Ayurveda is a religion, Ayurveda is witchcraft, Ayurveda is just for Yogis, and, the biggest one, Ayurveda just works when you believe in it. In this blog post, I would like to offer you a different outlook. Take away the… Continue reading About Ayurveda
This part of my life is called: finding myself. I‘ve been preaching about society's dysfunctional patterns for a long time now. Some of you know my hate speeches about the 9to5 society, about jumping right into work after finishing school or university, about the necessary house, the big car, and the obligatory partner for life. … Continue reading Finding myself
When was the last time you were really breathing? When did you take the time to feel, sense, and observe the lungs expanding when oxygen is flowing down your throat? When were you fully conscious with the simple act of breathing? When a child is born, the lungs inflate with the first breath taken. With… Continue reading About the breath
We are all just constantly busy hiding. Hiding emotions, hiding extra kilos, hiding little lies and big ones too. So busy covering our tracks of what is not „appropriate“, „trendy“, „normal“ or „ pretty“ due to society’s standards. I hide like… all the time. I find myself too emotional, too vulnerable, too weak. I consider… Continue reading Where’s the love?
Am I at home in this skin? Looking into sharp mirror splinters full of desire on lonely walls reflecting some of what I want to be, covering the ugly in my soul, facing the cold and hard light of another reality whilst catching a glimpse on something soft and warm running through my fingers as… Continue reading Ferocious skin
Where is it, the freedom that is held so high in nowadays world? Isn’t it an illusion, settling in the gaps between work and sleep, doesn’t it linger in between words and thoughts, hidden behind intentions, agendas, and human needs? Isn’t it the silent conductor of the endless and purposeless play of life? Get rich,… Continue reading Freedom
Now that we know what toxins are and how much we surround ourselves with them let's take a closer look into how to support our bodies into detoxing from chemicals, hormones, carcinogens, pesticides, and glyphosate our environment is contaminated with. As mentioned, humans and domestic animals are pretty much the only species on the planet… Continue reading About fasting
It is a fact that humans (and domesticated animals) are pretty much the only species suffering from chronic disease. Allergies, diabetes, sleep difficulties, constipation, skin reactions, depression, and even cancer are something that is mainly found in human bodies and the ones living close to us, eating our food, and breathing our air. These diseases… Continue reading About toxins
Trying to create a life I don’t have to escape from. Trying to create an everlasting holiday. A never ending summer where pieces are held together by nothing more than light and water. Walking down the streets, feeling naked from within, no more hiding, no more hunting, no more wanting. Breaking the silence of your… Continue reading Pure
