… Jade is most valued for its metaphysical properties. It is the ultimate “Dream Stone,” revered in ancient cultures, as well as today, to access the spiritual world, gain insight into ritualistic knowledge, encourage creativity, and dream-solve.  It is cherished as a protective talisman, assuring long life and a peaceful death, and is considered a powerful healing stone. An amulet of good luck and friendship, Jade signifies wisdom gathered in tranquility, dispelling the negative and encouraging one to see oneself as they really are…

The heart in the picture above is a gift of one of my yoga students and was turned into this cosmic message by my partner Rolf.

I like to share some snapshots of a recent trip of yoga students and myself to Lyon in France. At a later point I will also post images from the second part of our journey, which led us to Dijon and Burgundy.

Last weekend we stayed for the third time at the JTRC to enjoy Yoga Therapy, good company and delicious vegetarian food, surrounded by the rich beauty of the desert and Joshua Tree National Park. Find here the link to look at some images.

Master Class

The L.A. Times published an informative article about the Master Program for Yoga at Loyola Marymount University, where I myself have joined and finished a 4-year program for my Certification as a Yoga Therapist.  I’m glad to see that yoga is getting here step by step the recognition to be much more substantial than just another fitness/exercise program.

Our life is a series of moments in “NOW”.  As better, we make and enjoy “OUR NOWs”, as better our life will be.  -anonymous

Healthy and Delicious

Any yogini, who is looking at yoga not merely as an exercise program but rather as a lifestyle, will agree that what you eat and drink truly matters. My partner Rolf is the one, who takes care of that in our home and today I like to share two dishes, he recently served to my delight.

As he enjoys reading French restaurant menus and their elaborate description of the offered treats, he also came up with names for his creations:

For the photo above: Three shrimps getting sunburned on a green veggie island in the middle of an orange, carrots and sweet potatoes infused ocean. For the image below: Symphony of Atlantic Seaweeds and a selection of organic salad varieties, enriched with Wild Herring Filets, marinated in a white wine vinaigrette and joined by a decent number of organic  Edamame.

If anybody is interested in details of his recipes, just drop him an email at yogaretreats@help-your-health.com.  I’m sure he’ll share his kitchen secrets with you.

Namaste,

RoxAnn

 

Traveling a few days during my session break, we visited one of the most spectacular sights on Earth, the Grand Canyon. Enjoying this breathtaking natural wonder, I couldn’t resist and also had to do a few asanas, which my partner Rolf captured to share with the visitors of my website. Maybe this inspires you to go for the experience yourself!

Namaste,

RoxAnn

Dear All,

Namaste,
