I was lucky enough to discover Oslo Community Mindfulness at the beginning of this year. I was searching for meditation practises around Oslo, in desperate need of rebalancing and grounding. It was a time in my life when I were in much need of finding stillness, letting go of emotions and feelings I was holding onto so tight, that I was losing myself in them. I could not have asked for a better time to discover this amazing group, I believe that things come to you when its the right time for it and when you are open to receiving.

Oslo Community Mindfulness is a free meditation and mindful gathering in Oslo. We meet once a week no obligations, you come as you are and you meditate in the presence of everyone else who comes to the gathering. We also have mindful conversations after the meditation practise, which is a beautiful way to close the meditation with. I have attended it for six months now, and it has truly made such a huge impact to my life. I have also become apart of the facilitation group, so I´m leading the meetings on occasions, which is great for the self-development journey that I am on.

If you are passing by Oslo or if you live here,  feel free to join our Facebook group and come to a meeting whenever you feel like its your time to join us.

Humans spend most of their time on their feet, laying down or seated, we usually do not spend much time upside down. I believe we all can benefit from turning our world upside down and reverse our blood flow & our point of view. Doing headstands or shoulder-stands are a great way to practise reversing our perspective and  it has many great benefits to your body & soul.

I do not recommend you to jump straight into headstands or shoulder-stands if you have no previous experience with it, practise this postures with long time yogis or qualified yoga teacher, someone who can guide you, then progressing to using the wall before you move onto full versions. Doing these postures wrong can cause injuries, so make sure you respect your own body by practising safe.


A few benefits of headstand

Reversing the blood flow, improving blood flow to head, eyes and scalp.

Relief stress

Improve your digestive system

Improve core, arm and shoulder strength.

Help remove toxics from your blood system.

It has been about one month since I completed my yoga teacher training in Bali. I have been practising everyday, some days only 10 minutes but I have been doing it everyday. When I left Bali I knew that my practise would not be as it were during my time there. Here everyday life is happening at the same time, so somedays 10 minutes is all that is manageable, but my teacher in Bali said;

Practise everyday, even if it is only for 7 minutes.

So I intend to keep that promise. 

My self practise is one of my most important priorities, which I intend to keep as part of my daily life routine. I´m feeling the power of the work I put into it, it is a vibrant flow of energy.
Everything is a work in progress, I believe I will never reach a final stage where there is no more to achieve, but this is such a motivation to keep learning, reaching higher and improving, because there is always a new level to reach.

Having a yoga mat is something any yogi would need, so me being such a strong advocate for the environment felt like sharing two sustainable companies to get your yoga mat from.
Many mats have dangerous PVC, Toxic glues, and other nasty chemicals, so making sure you buy a mat that is good for the environment and for yourself should be of importance to you.


YOGI PEACE CLUB. & SALLY MUSTANG

 

ECO BENEFITS: 

Free from the nasties – latex, silicone, toxic glue, PVC, Chlorine and Phthalates. No toxic smell.

 

My yoga mat is a sacred place I spend a lot of time on, so both how it looks, feels and affect the environment are all equally important aspects of purchasing a mat.

I´m back in Norway for a few days now, and the weather here has been amazing, the trees are all beautifully covered with green leafs again, flowers are blossoming and it smells like spring. Oslo is a completely different world through this time of year compared to winter, fascinating.

My month in Bali were amazing, I´ve already shared a bit about it and I do feel that the blog will be more focused on this new journey I´m on. Going to Bali one of my main focuses was obviously to become a qualified yoga teacher, which I am now. That feels amazing, but there is so much more to it than what I had in mind. I can´t wait to share the path of real yoga with more people. I´m so grateful to life leading me in this direction and making me take the first step in a direction which I love so much. Teaching yoga will not be about offering people a fitness class, but to give them the option to connect deeper with them selves.

SO MUCH LOVE FOR THESE AMAZING GIRLS, THAN YOU FOR MAKING THIS THE BEST MONTH OF MY LIFE. 

live your truth everyone
