YIN YOGA in the middle of Manhattan / NYC – How to Wake Up a Jet Lagged Body

Hello dear Yogilators,

I’ve been traveling a lot lately, which meant many hours of sitting in airplanes and moving between time zones. You can perhaps imagine that my body wasn’t all too happy about it at times, but THANKS to YOGA <3 , I was able to gently wake up my body and prevent my lower back or hips from aching and hurting.

My first stop was in NYC and my hotel offered some fitness and yoga classes for guests. OF COURSE, I had to try it out and I was lucky enough to be able to attend one class AND that our teacher, Jeni Livingston, decided to do a session of YIN YOGA.

“Happy Mind – Damn Good Life” Yoga Retreat in Sankt Peter-Ording

This year was finally the year: I went on my very first yoga retreat! …

It’s been on top of my list of the things I’ve always wanted to do, and I’ve been looking for a yoga retreat, that suits my budget, for a looong time. So at the beginning of this year, I just hit the “book it now” button as part of my “Don’t do List” 2015 New Year’s resolutions. It was time to indulge and to be good to myself.

And now the day was here: I packed my yoga mat, clothes, and a big dose of excitement for my little 3-day Yoga Retreat adventure at a cool Beach Motel in beautiful St. Peter-Ording in Germany’s North Frisia.

Frankly, I wasn’t too sure what to expect. I haven’t personally met the two yoga teachers /hosts and had no clue what they were like or what their teaching style was going to be.
