Yoga for cancer Patients

Posted by Stephanie Neumann on


When you work with cancer patients, the science behind yoga becomes key. Because you are dealing with people who live under very special circumstances: they are traumatized by their diagnosis, they fear for their lives, they are suffering from the side effects of treatments like chemotherapy, and their bodies and minds are scarred by surgery and the experience of a severe and possibly deadly illness.

Sound of Silence—& Fire.

Posted by Melon Lime on


Have you ever been to a yoga class where the music just so perfectly fit the class it made you feel all the possible feels and sometimes even maybe wanting to sing along? I know I have. It’s one of the cosiest experiences letting ourselves move in beat with the tunes, melt into the melodies and letting the music help guide us through the flow. And as much as I’m a huge fan of music, is music in a yoga class a filler? Are too many teacher’s words a filler? What would happen if we allowed for the silence to reveal our thoughts, our fears, our joys? What if we allowed for the silence to reveal our soul?We most likely...

For the Love of It.

Posted by Katarina Tavcar on


When I was about 7 years old my parents enrolled me in music school to learn how to play the guitar. It only took two years of music school and a school recital where I forgot everything I was supposed to play (even though I knew it all by heart at home, of course), to realise I’m not willing...

My 5-point Holiday Manifesto.

Posted by Katarina Tavcar on


As I sit here, listening to the sounds of the cicadas, the scent of lavender enamoring me with every gentle wind blow, almost hearing these last days of my vacation swoosh by, I can’t think but reminisce back on my weeks away. (I know how lucky I am for the plural of the noun.)These magical, amazing, with just the right percentage of work and play, weeks away. And, of course, now that I look at it from a bit of perspective, it’s easy to be smart about it. Because every year, come (summer) holidays, I have this great big plan on what I’m going to achieve, all the projects I’m going to dive in, the things I’ll finally finish and...

Spiritual Bypassing & Why "Sending Love and Light" Just Isn't Enough Anymore.

Posted by Katarina Tavcar on


Because if we’re all about love and peace, why does that not include everyone? Are we only that “holy,” blissed out, and peaceful when our white privilege bubbles are safely untouched while we sit on the “yoga teacher/student” pedestal?

The Day Ganesha got Angry at the Moon {Story}

Posted by Katarina Tavcar on


Did you know that behind every yoga pose, every asana there is a myth? A story of that pose, of that sage, of that warrior? And one of my favourite poses—Ardha Chandrasana or Half Moon pose—has an especially interesting story when it comes to her cycles, her waxing, and waning.

Couch Office: How (Not) to Work from Home.

Posted by Katarina Tavcar on


Instead of being a smart-ass on what works, I’d rather be honest and talk about what most definitely does not and solutions to that. Solutions that I know work but I just don’t have the necessary discipline (at the moment, at least) or work to go through with it.

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. And I...
