Its Monday evening, but feels like Sunday evening as we have had a long weekend.
I´m watching the trees & leafs through my livingroom window, they are moving gracefully. It is a calming and soothing movement, therapeutic.


It is amazingly lush and green around Oslo now, which makes me smile and feel incredible happy. I always try to spend a lot of time in nature, to feel connected to our natural surroundings, mindfully observing nature & connecting with myself. Three days of time spent outside, walking barefoot, smelling the beautiful smells of spring and observing has recharged my batteries for a new week. Living in a city, sometimes we simply forget to be outside around natural elements. So if you feel that you need more time in nature, do something about it now.

A month surrounded by amazing open minded and spiritual people have come to an end. I´m so grateful for everything I´ve learnt this past month, I´m taking it all with me home, staying true to myself and they way I live my life. Staying mindful in everyday life can be a challenge, so I´m both nervous and exited for the next months, incorporating everything into my daily schedule.

I feel boosted with new energy and can´t wait to keep learning and exploring what lay ahead, building knowledge, building new relationships & going new places.

I´M TAKING MY MINDFUL PRACTISE WITH ME HOME & I CAN´T WAIT TO CONTINUE SHARING THIS AMAZING JOURNEY WITH YOU ALL.

My time in Indonesia have almost come to an end. At least for this time around, however that does not mean my spiritual journey will end. It has only just begun, I cant wait to continue down this road of life changing experiences that lay ahead. I´ve learnt so much about myself the last weeks, made new amazing inspiring friends, that I will be grateful to forever & learnt the true meaning of yoga. I´m overwhelmed, so much to process and take in, keep growing within the spiritual practise, hoping to inspire more people to join me on this amazing journey. I cant wait to share more of my new journey with you guys soon and the true meaning of a yogic lifestyle.

 

STAY PRESENT – STAY OPENMINDED –  DONT ACCEPT BUT NEITHER REJECT – CONTEMPLATE

Hi lovelies, just wanna check in to let you know that Bali/ Nusa is amazing, but most of my time is dedicated to the learning of the yogi system & lifestyle, so I´ve decided to not feel any pressure on updating the blog frequently. Whenever I have time and I feel like it I will do a little update. In the meantime I´ll focus 100% on this life changing journey that I´m on. This is the best decision I´ve made, next to moving to Australia five years ago.
Namaste. 

Much love from paradise

My mind, soul and body is on this amazing journey learning and processing so many interesting and amazing concepts. Learning to connect with myself on a new level, connecting with other like minded individuals.


The Teacher training retreat is on Nusa Lembongan, Island outside of Bali, at a little bungalow resort called Agung Bungalows. It is right on the beach, with our shala facing the ocean. This journey is really taking me to new places within myself and I`m so grateful to be here with this people that I´m doing it together with.

Its Tuesday night here in Oslo, I just came home from work, meditation meeting and lovely dinner with a girl from the meditation. We went to a an amazing vegan place here in Oslo, perfect last day before a month in paradise with in depth yoga practise.

…….

I´m packed and ready to go, trying to bring as little as possible. Most days will be filled up with yoga, meditation, learning, group work and self practise, so not much time for other activities. So packing has been really easy this time, the essentials are all the training gear; gym clothes, yoga mats, books, assessments and the rest of the booklets provided. Apart from that I´ve brought a couple of long lose dresses, beachwear and light tops and skirts for when we have som time off to explore.

 

Blessing from a pretty nervous and exited yoga enthusiast

HOLA FRIENDS,

 

I´m flying off to Bali in a few days, feeling a bit unconscious & nervous for this month that lay ahead. This week have been fully booked, mostly work. So I haven´t got much spare time. I´m almost ready for this, just need to pack my bags and make sure all the yoga articles are with me as they are the most important.

One thing that I´ve really come to appreciate and not take for granted the last six months, is not to be ashamed of failure. Most people live their life afraid of failing, so therefore they do not dare taking the chances where they dont have a clear view of the outcome. We are so scared of failing, that we miss out on great opportunities that could lead us on a path to higher grounds, even if dont reach the peak of success we will learn from it till the next time we have an opportunity.

……..

Before I finally managed to make the decision that I wanted to become a certified yoga teacher, I was only thinking about all the postures I could not manage and how I was failing at not being good enough. I have never been naturally flexible, I have never been really strong or good at anatomy but I do LOVE yoga and all the great benefits of it. Thankfully I changed my mindset around, I simply allow myself to fail, not be good enough. Because I will try again and again, until I will manage to do it. I will work hard for it, because if i dont dare to fail I will never know how far I can reach.


 

My friend Frida and I have been practising different “difficult” yoga postures, Feathered Peacock being the most difficult one, we still are not able to do it properly, but we are not giving up on it. When we finally manage to do it perfectly, we will find a new and more difficult one to practise.

The first half of the easter days were spent in our little cabin with my mum & brother, enjoying amazing weather with amazing mountain views. Sipping rose in front of a bon-fire and the sun warming your face, while the air is still frisk. We did two days of cross country skiing, which I´ve grown to enjoy more, as long as the weather is good. I simply take it as an exercise with the opportunity of taking beautiful photos along the way & taking in the amazing views. As I´m flying off to Indonesia soon, this was my last chance of skiing and being in the snowy mountains for this season, I really appreciated it as I´m not planning on spending much of the winter here next year.

Mountains and ocean are two simple joy´s I can not live without

Today we came home to Larvik, so I get to spend a few days by the ocean as well, so hoping the weather stays like this I cant complain, it is amazing.

HAPPY SUNDAY EVERYONE

  Oslo is sunny today, and the snow is melting, which is making me extremely happy. I´m hoping by the time I get back from Bali in May, it will be full bloom and summer vibes, until then let the spring blossom, we are in need of vitamin D and sipping rose in outside feeling the warmth. It is a nice feeling being able to wear less layers again.
