Boundaries: How to Hold Your Space

Boundaries are a big issue. Big, as they are pervading everything: relationships, work, family, the relationship with ourselves, interaction with friends and strangers, food issues, addictions and most importantly our needs and wants.

Sankalpa: The Power of Intention in Yoga

Any yogi has certainly heard this from their yoga teacher at some point: “Take a moment and set your intention for class.” I’m asking my students the same and have heard this sentence in almost every Jivamukti class. But what does this actually mean? Our intention at the beginning of class and our intention for our yoga or meditation practice is a… Read more →


Personal Energy: How to Maintain a Strong Energy Field

One of the most frequently asked questions in workshops is how to maintain our energy ‘clean’ and ‘strong’ so that we are not dragged into another persons energy, or worse, might even loose energy through contact with another person.

Kundalini Activation: Blessing or Curse?

Kundalini power is a mystery. Kundalini strikes whenever she pleases and once she is awake, she makes you shed old skin you where not even aware of having.

Destiny: It´s In Your Hands

‘We have the lines in our hands, it´s all written in there, but what we do with it, depends on us. We can change the lines in our hands! God loves everyone, he created us, so for sure he loves us. He does not want anything bad for us. So just because someone tells you, you can not do this… Read more →

Relax: A Restorative Yoga Practice To Find Peace

Restorative is, as the name says, a restorative way  to do yoga. Whereas Vinyasa makes you sweat and move quickly, restoratives aims at the opposite – to relax, restore and move slow. Poses are held for a up to 5 minutes and are supported by props (cushions, blocks or belts), allowing your body to relax deeply. It´s the yoga for… Read more →
