Yang and Yin I love resolutions! It’s all about planning, achieving, sweating to finally become the best version of ourselves. It’s firmness, determination, action. We are reaching out of our comfort zone and it feels great (especially if we manage to achieve one!) It’s all Yang energy: it’s active, invigorating and exciting. Yet, we can’t always be Yang. Life itself is a balance between action … Continue reading New Year Resolutions revisited
Those are my favorite shoes ever, Ferragamo Suede Stilettos: Red, feminine, Italian of course. Yet they have spent so many years in the darkness of my closets – blame it on our years in Asia: Vietnamese and Filipino sidewalks are definitely not made for heels so I wore Nike instead, swapping style for comfort.

“The most reliable way to create the future is to write it“ This is my New Year exciting ritual. I collect my favorite pictures, stickers and quotes. A rainbow of crayons are laying in front of me, with scissors, glue and pinches of glitters. Orange essential oils are slowly burning in the background and depending on the mood, I’d listen to classical music or something … Continue reading Happiest New Year ! Vision Board Time !
Fascinating. The documentary hooked me right from the start. We all know (at least in the yoga community) the man and his inheritage. 26 poses and two breathing exercises performed in the same order every class for exactly 90 minutes in a heated room. So hot that most practionners would practice in bikini. The documentary is all about the fall of his empire after he’s … Continue reading My 2 cents on Bikram doc on Netflix
