Alle Einnahmen aus dieser Klasse gehen uneingeschränkt an ISD e.V. – Initiative Schwarze Menschen in Deutschland Bund e.V.

Wir alle sitzen im gleichen Boot, und wenn wir alle zusammen halten, können wir Berge versetzen.⠀

In dieser Zeit ist das – wie ich finde – eine großartige Möglichkeit, zusammen und vereint WELTWEIT aufzustehen und uns friedlich für ANDERE stark zu machen.

From Slavery to Shackles

I never considered myself biased or felt complicit. Growing up with all kinds of people from different countries, one of my first lovers was an African-American, I work with Indians, African-Americans, Italians, Russians, … my godson is the love of my best friend and her African-American partner. I never felt any different towards anyone ever in my life.

And then .. I don’t have ANY PoC (People of Colour) in my yoga classes and I ask myself why is that so? Is it because the studio is too expensive? Is it because PoC don’t feel welcome in that studio? Is it because of me? I really don’t know. I was wondering if it is something I DO or DON’t do.

From Slavery to Handcuffs.

I want to learn more about the history of slavery now & then and what this White Privilege is all about.

I am determined to learn

– about white supremacy, racism, and bias in my own life and how I am complicit

– how I can leverage my privilege to create actual change

– how to show up better and embody anti-racism every day and not only when it’s prominent in news and media

To make a start I watched this documentary on Netflix last night. It gives you a searing understanding of the historic context of the systemic race problem. I was stunned. Not only because I saw what I saw but seeing the similarities to our – the German’s – own history of racism during German Reich.

“People say all the time, ‘I don’t understand how people could’ve tolerated slavery. How could they have made peace with that? How could people have gone to a lynching and participated in that? How did people make sense of the segregation, this white and colored-only drinking … This is so crazy. If I was living at that time, I would have never tolerated anything like that.’ – And the truth is, we are living at this time, and we are tolerating it.” ~ Bryan Stevenson, Interviewee

Justice too long delayed is justice denied. Now is the time to understand, and the whole world has to deal with it.

🖤🖤

(I am aware this is not my area of expertise. I am simply sharing a documentary recommendation.)

Yoga in Zeiten von Corona und Social Distancing

Seit über zwei Wochen nun übe ich mich im Online Unterricht … nicht, weil ich so unglaublich gerne vor der Kamera stehe, nicht, weil mir das Hin- und Herfahren zu den Studios zu nervig ist. Ich mache das, um meinen Schülern und allen anderen die Möglichkeit zu geben, ihre Praxis aufrecht zu erhalten. Ein geschlossenes Studio ist und darf kein Grund sein, dass “Yoga nicht mehr gemacht” werden kann.

Finde alle Online Live Klassen >>> hier.

Ein Pfeiler meines Unterrichts war und ist es, meine Schüler mit dem notwendigen Handwerkszeug auszustatten, dass sie auch ohne mich IHR Yoga finden und ausüben können.

Diese Tage nun, da uns nahe gelegt wird, jede Art menschlichen Kontakts erstmal zu vermeiden, ist das Online Training oder Live Classes via ZOOM oder einer anderen, beliebigen Plattform unausweichlich. Nämlich für all diejenigen, die es sich – aus welchen Gründen auch immer – nicht leisten können, ins Studio zu kommen. Egal ob aus Zeit- oder finanziellen Gründen, unabhängig von der Entfernung. Ja, sogar unabhängig von der Zeitzone …

Heute – von mir, für dich – eine 60 Minuten Yogaklasse. Das einzige, was du brauchst, ist ein Internetzugang und Zugang zu YouTube. Aber wenn du das hier gelesen hast, bist du ja schon halbwegs dort 😉.

Mit Klick auf das Bild geht’s direkt zum Video. Ganz frisch von heute morgen, als ich für das Jivana Yoga Studio in Stuttgart live gegangen bin.

Viel Spaß und Freude dabei.

Trick your mind – another phrase for brain mapping.

Not gonna lie. After a few weeks into the online training I feel like I am losing pieces of my identity as a teacher. I took a break to think about what and why this is happening. Turns out .. I want too much in a too short amount of time. Once I decided to slow it down, to study and give myself the opportunity to let all the stuff sink in I instantly felt better.

Together we can make it through on

Being into my week 3 of my online TT by @lytyoga is keeping me busy. To stay on top I watch and practice at least 3 hours a day, taking notes, finding the similarities, the differences between my beloved Katonah Yoga® and LYT™ only to realise (as if I haven’t known before) that it’s all the same. We LOVE to EVOLve (thanks to Brian Nygard for this one).

The biggest difference between luck and magic is technical. Magicians want luck, too. But really their game is technical. They always know how to pull a rabbit out of the hat because it’s a trick. It’s not a guess. ~ Katonah Yoga

After a weekend in Dublin, spending time with some amazing women (and one man), learning to connect the dots, applying this knowledge to the brain, to the mind & body I am happy to bring all of this to you.

Be technical to pull some tricks on

You do not serve your practice, your practice serves you. So that you can live well. So that you can cope. So that you can be well adjusted in a world that is utterly demanding. 

I am going to spend next weekend in Dublin, Ireland. I have never been there. It’s a weekend to serve me. Learning new skills and techniques. Some will work for me, some won’t. But these experiences will make me more competent, more able and will give me more stability and safety. With that my vision gets clearer and I get stronger in body & mind.
