My kind of yoga

”Do yoga with no goal but to be in the moment. This breath, this stretch, this wave of emotion rolling in. Watch it crest, and break, then dissipate.

Hold the body like a lover in a close embrace, listening with tenderness.

Yoga is a threshold into mystery; each pose an open doorway and an invitation to unfold. 
Sensations rise and fall, and through it all the deathless center radiates the simple truth of union.”
-Donna Faulds.

Bali Retreat Autumn 2019

Planning for an autumn retreat here 💛with yoga, togetherness, Bali boost, dance, healthy food and time for self nourishment together in this Beautiful place of the world. How yummi sounds that?

This might be the venue.. Green delicious djungle, pools and lovely food is also on the menu 🙂

Bali Bliss

Cant get enough of theese evenings here. So much heart. Songs. Nature. Togetherness. As the monsun rain came we danced in it for a while and then escaped to the pavilion. Stopping was never an option☺️👌🏼❤️Me like. Bali bliss.

Morning after I woke up with an ocean of curls after dancing through the fullmoon night, the rain, the fears, the longings, the happiness. Felt in to the big lust for life I touch in to here ❤️makes me wonder, am I a djungle woman born in the cold sweden?

Sunday promise

Lets get still enough for the moment to arrive to you. The sky, the clouds, the wind and the birds song. I truly believe slow is the new flow. 💙

presence

Someone said. ”In pure presence there are no where else you need to be.” So true. This precious spot not to be forgotten. Breathing in to the full aliveness of this moment in between the known past and the unknown future.💛Welcome friday.

Courage💛

Woke up and cant believe I read my poems out loud yesterday night. Holy guacamoly. I felt for trying it and it was a good spot for doing it. I did not dare but did it anyway. And they wanted more. When doing one thing we don’t dare or never thought we could, we open new doors. And a bigger believe in more openings coming our way in the future. Someone said courage is like a muscle, the more you use it the easier it gets. 💛

Yin mode Ubud 💛

Nothing needs to happen, here, right now. Life is already complete & holding us.
We don´t need something or someone to come from the outside to complete us or fill us up, cause we are already so complete. We always were and always will be. In every moment, breath and time. Being you is enough. ❤️

 

 

Silent day in Bali.

Yesterday we had a silence day (Nyepi) on the island. Nyepi is part of the Balinese new years celebration that goes on for 6 days. Everybody have to stay at home (tourists in their hotels) and wifi and electricity is supposed to be off. It was a special experience. I had time to go through all my writings since first day of my trip. It turned out to be a good space for reflection.  I’ll share some words from my journal I think is a good reminder for all of us.

We do not need to be hard on ourselves. We need to love ourselves. Love our humanness, laugh a little or a lot to the human mess we sometimes notice or touch in to. Smile to the uncertainty of life and breath through the heart of the moment.💙

THE STRANGER

I spent 3 days in Singapore with beautiful gardens and great food. On my way back to Bali they cancelled my flight, so I spent 17 hours at the airport. A meeting with a stranger stood out and made me creative…resulting in a poem in the middle of the night..

THE STRANGER
In moment unsure
while left on the shore

with plans in the sea
you came to me

guided me through
some moments with you

spreading the light
while catching your flight

you´re one of a kind
unusual to find

driven apart
but still in my heart

time is behind
and you in my mind ~Caroline

How to silence an american man..


Had a late lunch on the restaurant of yogabarn the other week and an amerikan man in the age of my father shared the table. He was a non stopper when it came to talking. Could not sit in silence for a minut. He went on about hes new yoga rutins. Taking 3 vinyasa (very sweaty high intense classes here in Bali) a day. While fasting. (Not eating only drinking juices) He could not stop talking about it, maybe it was hes hunger, I dont know. After many other questions he ask me, have you ever tried fasting for 7 days? And I answered, yes, I have, I did it for 7 years, and I found out, its not for me.
Finally he got quiet and I could continue my meal😋 I know a cleansing can be good for the organs in our bodies and Im not against it. But important is to be kind to ourselves in this sometimes so very body fixated society. To nourish ourselves with kindness, humanness and nourishing healthy food.
