Yoga is good for you. Sure, that’s a fact – proven by our own feelings, experiences as well as scientific studies. I’ve wrote about it for example in my “Yoga & Healing” post or “5 Reasons to Do Yoga at Work” article before.
However, have you ever thought about yoga helping you to speed up your metabolism and increasing your metabolic rate? Your metabolism is like your nice and cozy fireplace that converts or “burns” the food you’re eating into energy and something valuable for your body and overall well-being. Do you know those fit and healthy people that eat quite a lot when you go out to eat or see them at a party? And you might think “Wow, how can they eat all that without gaining weight?”
Hello my dear Yogilators!
The new year is only 6 days old and many brands, studios, and so called “discounter stores” are already featuring workout tools, clothes, and accessories with special sales these days in Germany.
Hi my dear Yogilators!
I finally got a yoga block!!! Frankly, I wasn’t too convinced about the use of it at the beginning, but the more I tried them during yoga classes in studios, the more I became I fan of it.
last Thursday was the day! The day I finally met one of my favorite yoga instructors and bloggers CANDACE of YogaByCandace at my workplace for an OFFICE CHAIR YOGA CLASS that I organized for my colleagues and myself.
Yoga in Berlin: Chimosa ~ Yoga, Tea, Fitness
Today was the day! I started my 30 day membership with a very cool project called “Urbansportsclub” in Berlin. They offer a fitness flatrate in different sizes. I got size M, which allows me to attend classes in a variety of yoga, Pilates, and other fitness studios, beach volleyball, bootcamp classes, zumba, and much more all over Berlin. This is MY chance to explore the city more and to find some awesome YOGA places and meet people. 🙂
Today, I started with a 90 minute Jivamukti yoga class at CHIMOSA in Berlin Mitte/central Berlin.
Would you like to improve your balance, stretch your shoulders and strengthen your legs and upper back at the same time? How about Eagle pose?
I personally found this pose quite challenging at the beginning, however today I am doing it almost everywhere I can. It helps me focus and shut off my countless thoughts that can be sometimes be overwhelming. Also, lately I’ve been struggling with some sciatica nerve pain on my tights and looked more into stretches to relieve the tension there, so I found Eagle pose to be very helpful and relieving to me.
It’s weekend time and you might have to clean, cook, and run lots of errands, so there’s almost no time to make it to your yoga class?
Or perhaps you are constantly traveling around, never really at one spot, with no time to look or settle for a great yoga studio?
So why not taking a yoga class ONLINE? It’s FREE, for all levels and styles.

“I’ve been practicing yoga for several years. At the end of every class is a five-minute relaxation, savasana. You lie on your back, in what some people call corpse pose, and let yourself completely relax. Easy, right? Yeah, except relaxing my mind. More often than not, my brain starts whirring furiously the moment we lie down, and the savasana ends before I’m even aware it’s going on. In one class, my teacher leads us through a relaxation, but sometimes I can barely hear her over my own thoughts.”
I can absolutely relate to this 100%! It feels so great to see that I’m not alone with this “problem” 🙂 What about you?
