One of the best things that I remember from my childhood is my mom’s passion for yoga. Often I would ¬†join her on the mat and try to copy her poses. I could walk on my knees, put my legs behind my neck and stand on my head. Not so much anymore….. ūüôā — but I have always wanted to start yoga and get into the yoga groove. My problem is, I really don’t enjoy¬†big, filled-to-the-brim yoga studios. ¬†I like to be in my own space, I like the peace, and I like to enjoy yoga when it fits into my schedule.



That is why I was so happy when I found Myyogaonline and Doyogawithme.

Two fabulous programs, videos of different lengths, different levels, different styles, different teachers Рyou pick and choose what fits you best.

I absolutely love it!

Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it. Rumi

There are so many benefits to doing yoga. It’s quite amazing what happens in just a few moments of deep breathing, slowly moving the body into poses, simply being on the floor reduces stress and before you know it, you feel more relaxed!

P.S ¬†Please listen to your body and don’t do too much – let your body be your guide!

Here are some great articles about the benefits of yoga:

One from Harvard University on how yoga helps reduce stress and anxiety.

Another by Science Daily, an interesting study shows that yoga reduces stress and anxiety among prisoners and has a positive effect on impulsive behaviour.

And a third by the Yoga Journal about the overall health benefits

On a finishing note – I am moving my blog to be self-hosted – this means my blog might be down for a day or so – Looking forward to seeing you over there ūüôā


First time I ever heard of Tao Porchon-Lynch


was while reading one of my favorite blogs Zen & Genky , who did a blog post on photos taken of Tao Porchon -Lynch, by the amazing  photographer Robert Sturman. I instantly fell in love with her and the incredible photos!

Tao Porchon-Lynch is a beautiful, inspiring yoga teacher – and 93 years old!!!

After a hip replacement her doctor told her ” you wont be able to do this and you wont be able to do that” and she answered ” I don’t want to hear what you think I will not be able to do, because I don’t believe it”

This photo is taken by the Robert Sturman in Central Park.

Then this morning my friend Pat sent me a YouTube with this remarkable woman and I wanted to share it with you.
