I love sundays!
✨
yoga, meditation, glorious brekkie, email answering resulting in 4 bookings, prep for a new coaching assignment, terrace sitting, seagull staring, ...
✨
... laundry, booked 2 flights, revisited the swot-analysis i made last week, wrote a blog, made a mala and next week’s retreat schedule...
✨
... and now wondering where the other hours went.
more seagull staring probably.... no judgement please, they can be quite fascinating when you make them a little pool...
✨
wow, this almost feels like working. yallah, off to the beach it is! ✨
if you’re getting the creeps when even thinking about your job and live from weekend to weekend: please take the time to redesign your life. ✨
drop me a message if you have no idea on how to even start with that.

Lookah samastah sukhino bhavantu. ❀️
may all beings everywhere be happy and well. ❀️
it’s a personal reminder to me that we are all one. whatever they may look like, say or do.
❀️
chanting this mantra can take us out of our self-absorbed, narrow thinking minds and make us aware of others.
and care about them.
❀️
cultivating a peaceful mind is not a burden or a heavy task.
we can transform it into something that we want to do, for ourselves and others.
❀️
why not share some care in the weekend?
❀️

Beyond measure, one of my favorite breakfasts! it could do with some salmon and an avocado but helas, not available yesterday.
πŸ₯³
started the day with an epic worst-beach-run-ever.
yesterday was awesome but wine and running just do not mix for me...
🀯
the beach did its magic though and i’m ready to rock and write for a couple of hours! πŸ€“
today, it’s all about being graciously grateful. contentment or santocha in yoga philosophy. πŸ™
well, for sure graciously grateful to @quinoadomainelion for moroccan quinoa!
soooo good! .
.
.
wishing you a great day with lots of things to be graciously grateful for!

Thank you world.
thank you, thank you, thank you.
for reminding me how beautiful life can be. •
unplug and enjoy. •
especially when you’re feeling a bit off? like i did from way too much screen time. get out there and let nature do her thing. •

Over the past 2 weeks, i found myself staring at a screen way too much.
time for a change in scenery! •


i actually did create our next toubkal adventure and organised someone’s upcoming trip whilst hiking up so, it really was my office. •


hassan, from @hassanatlastrek and i hiked up to the tawdja peak.
it’s only 2800 meters but it’s steep up and kina felt like double today. •


and, we ran down...
at the time, it seemed like a really fun thing to do. now, i’m wondering if i will be able to walk tomorrow...



hiking always super charges me. the physical challenge, the adventure, clean air, silence and these majestic mountains are just wow. •


do you know what super charges your batteries? and do you do exactly that often enough?

Christmas came early this year!!!



when repeating guests are booking, it’s a party day! •


the ratio is about 1 in 4 now.
booking another revealing vajra retreat, within 2 years after a first retreat.
these retreats are seriously addictive!
whoops.
sorry. not sorry.



2 very special ladies booked yesterday 😍
one is at her 4th retreat, the other one at her 3rd retreat with me.
too cool πŸ₯³.



both moms, with high fly jobs and busy lives but they take the time out for themselves to relax and recharge.
right here in sunny morocco. brilliant!



my party place is the beach here in essaouira. •


where do you go to when you have something to celebrate? •

Blogs, podcast prep, writing a book and i still feel like reading something extra today on the terrace!
#thenerdwithin πŸ€“
anyone read this book?
page 1-ish: “4.5 billion years before the present: formation of planet earth.”
🀯
that stuff gets to me every time... sooo fascinating and inspiring.
who are we?
who am i?
why are we who we are?
why do we do the things we do?
etc ;) πŸ“š
relaxing, with a book, in the sun is pure bliss for me and insanely inspiring.
work-work-work: sure, as long as you take the time to relax and to fuel up! πŸ“š
check out my blog if the winter blues are hitting you. link in bio.

What has yoga brought to your life?
✨
question by @yogapedia_com as i’m their yoga blogger of the month! thank you!
✨
yoga has practically changed eveything in my life, for the better.
from my diet to my relationships, from my job to my body and mindset and even the country i live in.
in my corporate years, i managed to neglect my body: drinking too much, not sleeping enough, flying around the world giving presentations, managing about a 100 people, having insane stress levels and responsibilities.
πŸ’₯
when i compare that to my life today, well... there is no comparison really!
i just came back from running my first half marathon here in marrakech, easily, without too much effort. i’m fit, healthy and i walk or run on the beach almost every day. stress is a non-issue and i work whenever i want. i’m d***k after 1,5 glass of alcohol and mostly vegetarian.
there is love in my life, i keep meeting the most amazing and inspiring people and above all, i enjoy life so much more. ✨
and all of this, without a doubt, is the effect of having embraced yoga and meditation into my life. πŸ˜‡
my aspiration is for more people to feel less anxious, happier, more at ease, more confident and relaxed.
and maybe my blogs can be a first step in achieving just that!
✨
my latest blog is on how to handle the winter blues. go check it out if you’ve had enough of people pushing you to achieve more, do more, etc etc.
i say: reeeeelax more is the answer! .

Shopping is really not my thing but finding the new welcoming bracelets for my upcoming yoga retreats today was absolutely great! βœ¨πŸ’Žβœ¨πŸ’Žβœ¨πŸ’Žβœ¨πŸ’Žβœ¨
@marlenepauly from @coco_morocco showed me around in the souks and we found and chose my pearls in like 2 seconds: enter my kind of shopping!
✨
marlene hunted the souks a bit more and i got a glimpse of what it is to run a sourcing agency in morocco. omg, that woman gives a new dimension to the concept of shopping, lol. ✨
seriously impressed with the amount of time and patience that is needed to deliver top quality to her worldwide clients. ✨
there’s incredible craftman ship here but to link it to the high level western demands: wowie.
not that easy. πŸ”ŽπŸ§πŸ”ŽπŸ§πŸ”ŽπŸ§πŸ”ŽπŸ§πŸ”Ž
check, double check, triple check and check again. respect! ✨

Do something that scares you every now and then. it’s good for the soul! 😱
ok.
πŸ™ƒ
does running half a marathon count? πŸƒπŸΌ‍♀️
moi... the one who said she’s not a runner. what was i thinking?! clearly, i was not thinking, lol.
πŸ₯³
and... i had the best time ever!
enjoyed every single minute (although i could have done without km 16-18). ❀️
a massive shukran to all supporting moroccans along the way. ❀️
what a joy to be here: music, dance, clapping and cheering. i so love this country: the chaos, the joy. i learn every day. ❀️
what will you do that scares you?
go for it! ‘just do it!’.
