My newest article “5 Tips to Deal with Conflicts” at the HuffPost is out!

Dear Yogilators,

Have you ever been in conflict with someone and felt personally attacked? Or even blamed yourself for mistakes that you haven’t done or had any control over?

I wrote about “5 Tips to Deal with Conflicts” in my newest article at the HuffPost. Perhaps you can relate?

Looking forward to your comments, thoughts, and of course: shares 🙂

Two Years of Yogilation – A happy review

HAPPY 2nd BIRTHDAY of YOGILATION!! 😀

2 years ago, I decided to overcome my insecurity and fear of what others think and started my YOGILATION facebook page …
They idea was to use it for sharing interesting yoga articles and my favorite quotes only. Over time, it extended to posting my own writings, pictures, recommendations, yoga postures, and personal (travel) adventures.
Many great things happened in the last two years:

1 Year of Yogilation

Happy 1st Birthday of Yogilation!!

It’s unbelievable but today exactly 1 year ago, I decided to create my very own personal page that I named “Yogilation.” The idea was to write about and share my thoughts on feelings and experiences that I encountered. At the time, I just moved back home to Germany after living in the US for 6 years, lived with my parents again, had a huge culture shock, and couldn’t find a job.

So I started writing about it and built the courage to post it on my page. Surprisingly, my Yogilators seemed to like it, and this encouraged me to submit one of my articles “5 reasons to move on” for publication, and YOGANONYMOUS decided to post it. That was at the end of January 2013.

The Cracked Pot ~ A beautiful methaphor

~A beautiful metaphor and reminder~

The Cracked Pot

A water bearer had two large pots, each hung on the ends of a pole which he carried across his neck. One of the pots had a crack in it, while the other pot was perfect and always delivered a full portion of water.

At the end of the long walk from the stream to the house, the cracked pot arrived only half full. For a full two years this went on daily, with the bearer delivering only one and a half pots full of water to his house.

Thoughts on Timing II – Why don’t we just do the things we always wanted to do NOW and not later?

“The trouble is, you think you have time.” Buddha

This is something I’ve been thinking about lately … there are so many things I said I wanted to do when my work gets less busy, when the summer is here, when I have more time etc.

And what have I done of all those things? To be honest, not many. I said I’d go to get my car washed as soon as the winter is over and then spring came, summer came, and I kept driving by the car wash
