    Naked

    It just sort of happened. It was vacation time, and there weren’t that many people in the office. That day, the sun was shining, the best of the summer time. And you know how…

    Om, sweet om

    I can’t om anymore. Om is the universal sound. This sacred mantra, considered to be the “primordial seed” of the universe, is the root mantra and encapsulates into a single sound the essence of…

    The simple life

    I plead guilty. I have been judging you. Don’t worry, I am even tougher on myself. But when I saw you with your two kids, your husband your mini-van and your tent-trailer next to…

    Don’t work too hard

    HIIT. High Intensity Interval Training. The word itself feels like a punch in the face. You already know you’re not in for a walk in the park. So of course, I love it. I’m…

    Keep calm and create on

    Calmness is underrated. We live in a fast-paced world, where we embrace movement, action, when we are always looking for the next step, the next project, whatever’s coming up. In business, we pretend we…

    Life is a club sandwich

    Walking back home from yoga on a Thursday evening. As I am arriving, I notice through one of my neighbors’ window  (I love watching in people’s home, I love picturing what their life might…
