WINTER UNIFORM

7:32 PM As soon as the cold air hits us, I am super excited to layer up! My birthday is during winter time, so I am super in love with the cold and walking around like a super big marshmallow. Then, when winter starts to being a routine, I tend to get bored very fast, because my layering looks ALWA…

BUTT I CARE ~ A NEW CHALLENGE IS COMING

5:25 PM I spent my whole day lazy being in bed. It wasn't planned, but I have to say it feels good to relax and enjoy some time off. Christmas candy is still hunting me and I feel like I need to work out double as much as usual... Thank god the year will end tomorrow and a new month is starting…

RUN AROUND THE WORLD: WASHINGTON SQUARE PARK, NEW YORK

4:53 PM Right on Christmas Eve I finally got my new running shoes, perfect timing, I thought! With all my new running gear, I went outside and said hello to Mother Nature (it had been too long...) I chose to go quiet early, because I hate when my neighbors follow each step of mine...It brought me m…

OFF COLOR CHRISTMAS VIBES

4:43 PM I'm full and beyond happy! This morning, I got up early, did my yoga pose and stretched a lot! I also had a bit of time left until I went to work, so I did an extra workout, because I knew about my calories I will enjoy later... After being at work for a little bit (yes, I work on Chris…

GETTING READY FOR SANTA

12:03 PM Ohhh yeah. I'm a girl. I am not waking up at 12 AM to order new color palettes (I only do that for sneakers...) but sometimes I get hyped, too, when I find a perfect shade or product in general which compliments me beyond. Special holidays are my favorite days to go crazy and try somet…

DECEMBER 24th: EXTENDED HAND TO TOE

6:54 AM An early morning for me...but I can't sleep anymore! I am beyond excited!!! Christmas is finally here!! I already prepared my cup of tea and a cinnamon star is waiting for me after the very last yoga pose for this month! Oh boy, HOW DO YOU FEEL? I can't believe the last day is here.…

TEA PARTY WITH PAPER & TEA

3:38 PM It's the perfect time to sit down, get cozy, and drink a hot cup of tea! I have been appreciating tea more and more the older I get. I remember tea as a soothing helper when I was sick...During Christmas, I think about the times when I sat down with my mom, watched old movies and drank …

A LATE TUESDAY TALK / A COZY ADVICE

10:01 AM While I am done with my daily stretch, I make myself up and check what's up in internet land. Outside, I am not really feeling many Christmas vibes except of the Christmas market. In the grocery stores, I'm the only one who wishes a merry Christmas. Is that wrong? While I'm bro…

DECEMBER 23rd: SUPPORTED HEAD STAND

7:52 AM One more, one more. Tomorrow will be the last day of this so fun Christmas calendar and that's why I though I challenge us one more time to try another "crazy" pose. You might remember when I shared the first head stand, I kind of panicked and I couldn't deal with it at al…

DECEMBER 22nd: CORPSE

8:45 AM How are my yoga babes doing? Do you feel fresh this morning?  I have to admit, I had a really rough night, but this morning I feel pretty good! I will do my last Christmas shopping today and then I will stretch some more to the Off Color Christmas mix which I will release pretty soon as wel…

DECEMBER 21st: UPWARD HAND

8:52 AM Gooood morning! The day is coming closer, santa will be here soon and this Christmas calendar will end when Christmas arrives. I hate the feeling when you get used to something and then all of a sudden it will be gone! For January, I am planning a new challenge for you, but I am also thinki…

DECEMBER 20th: BOAT

7:39 AM The gift guides are out and I feel like there is still so much I want to share with you before Christmas - I need more days! Anyways, today, we start the day with a lovely new stretch to perfectly prepare for the treat later! Yes, I will treat all of you with a family recipe from my grandma…

DECEMBER 19th: CHATURANGA

6:35 AM I can't believe how fast December is going by. Also I feel like the days are passing me right now since, I didn't really sleep much because of this stupid moon phase. Somehow my body is full of energy at the weirdest times and then again I am beyond exhausted.  How are you feeling?
P…

DECEMBER 18th: DOWNWARD FACING DOG

3:37 PM Oh lord, you can tell it's the weekend. I wasn't sleeping long - I stayed at my sister's place, because she planned our Sunday with great surprises! We actually spent our morning at the cinema and we had so much fun together! Sometimes, this is all you need to be happy again! To…

DECEMBER 17th: CAT

8:19 AM I didn't really plan on the order of the poses! I wanted to mix the levels...some days we get super easy poses, some other days we challenge ourselves with a harder pose! It's just funny to me that every day, the right pose is waiting for me! This morning I woke up with heavy back p…

DECEMBER 16th: TREE 1

10:03 AM Those winter days can be a pain in the ass sometimes! I feel like the cold is currently stealing all of my energy and power, so there is only one way to fight that: workout more! This week, one of my high priorities is drinking and sweating a lot! I said it in my winter running essential p…

DECEMBER 15th: CHAIR

7:07 AM While I realize that my morning will start without green tea, I am sleepy, but super excited to do today's pose! I feel like the last two days really pushed me and I found poses which I would love to do more often! Just like the shoulder stand. If someone from my high school reads the b…

WINTER RUNNING ESSENTIALS

8:21 PM My life. Yeah, sounds weird, but running has become my life. I don't want to miss it and that's why I enjoy each running season more. Right before winter hits us, I get a little panic attack, because I know the days will be freezing and so dark. For runners, the cold is actually the…

DECEMBER 14th: WARRIOR I

8:04 AM I think this is the first day now where I really feel my body. I am stretching every day and also I am stretching more than 2 minutes, since I always need a bit longer to understand each pose, haha. Of course I am also doing other workouts besides of that, but this morning, I feel certain p…

NEW YORK STORIES #11: DEM HAIR + NYC ROOFTOPS

3:42 PM The cold and foggy days turn faster to freezing winter days then we can blink with our eye. During all those season changes, my body is still confused about staying hydrated, fresh, and full of life, although it's the same procedure each year. When summer is knocking on our doors, I go …

DECEMBER 13th: SHOULDER STAND

9:42 AM My coffee is ready for me and I am watching the fog covering the outside scenery. Guys, how was your stretch yesterday? I already said it, the head stand is a crazy fellow and I don't want to push you too hard! Each day is a new inspiration to get to know yoga and furthermore understand…

DECEMBER 12th: HEADSTAND

6:10 AM OMG. Noooo. This is the most horrible pose. Please not!  This is what my head tells me this morning. Oh god, after yesterday's pose, I'm a bit scared, but as I already told you: we can do it - somehow!It's all about trying things and being brave. Sometimes we need to do things o…

DECEMBER 11th: UPWARD BOW (WHEEL)

9:53 AM Good morning Sunday! Today I'm a little bit scared about the pose...I told you this Christmas calendar will guide you through the basics of yoga - simple poses for beginners. I chose the poses based on my experiences and what I think is easy or hard for people without any experience. It…

PUMPKIN CINNAMON KANELBULLAR

9:01 AM I'm not sure if this pumpkin dessert is perfect for December, but eating pumpkin soup all day may bore you after a little bit, so you get this delicious dessert today from me. It's not a secret: a.) I love pumpkins and b.) I love cinnamon rolls. Combining those two things seemed uns…

DECEMBER 10th: STANDING FORWARD FOLD

8:07 AM The sky is still slightly pink and I feel super fresh today! After a little late night workout session, I feel full of energy this morning and I can't wait to show you today's pose.  What are your plans for the weekend? Maybe you could add a little run or a little cardio session to …
