Moon Rituals or How I Talk to the Moon

Posted by Katarina Tavcar on


When it comes to the moon, I think we can roughly be divided into two groups: into those who follow moon’s every step, her cycle and plan their days and events accordingly, and those who simply find the cycle of the moon the representation of the ever changing cycle of life itself.I fit more into the second group. And while I don’t have a scientific explanation on how the moon can affect our moods, I hold deep affection for her. I find the moon enchanting and see her changing phases as an opportunity to dive a little deeper into myself, sit still and let the moon illuminate parts of myself that I’m not familiar with yet or often shy away from.

Yoga Props: What & Why?

Posted by Katarina Tavcar on


As I stumble into the living room still half asleep with a vague memory of last night’s dream, she’s already waiting for me —unrolled and ready to accompany me on this journey of self-discovery and self-acceptance. I take one my my folded blankets and place it at the top the mat. I place a bolster underneath my knees and find a laying position. I cover myself with another blanket, make sure I’m all tucked in and the cold morning air can't come near me and put my earphones in. I’m ready to dive into this practice. I’m ready to come back home to myself.I settle, cover my eyes with a scarf and pres play. ~ The Mat. A yoga mat is usually...

Chocolate for Breakfast? Yes, Please! {Recipe}

Posted by Katarina Tavcar on


Another thing that makes my heart skip a beat, besides a good night’s sleep (I swear I’m only almost-32, not almost-72), is chocolate. And not just any chocolate but an insanely delicious, exquisite chocolate that makes my mouth water just thinking of that gorgeous taste. What’s even better than chocolate? Liquid chocolate deliciousness camouflaged as a smoothie.

The Big »Why«: Why Go To Yoga?

Posted by Katarina Tavcar on


While yoga is not just about postures (there are 7 other parts to it, to be exact), the main thing about yoga is »yoking«, connecting, realising that we're all in this together, which is something that extends far beyond the four corners of the yoga mat—caring for the Earth, the oceans, equal rights, our neighbours and every. damn. thing.

Ayurvedic Rituals for our Mind + Body

Posted by Katarina Tavcar on

Or can they actually be implemented in everyone’s life? If you ask me, the latter.

Natural shampoo & conditioner bars

Posted by Katarina Tavcar on


The main box I wanted my shampoo and conditioner to tick—besides not being full of chemicals, not being tested on animals and, if possible vegan—was the “no plastic” box so I was looking for a shampoo/conditioner bar.
