– Mind & Body Are One. This is How I integrate Mind & Body in My Work // Find the English Version below –

Wir sind Körper und Geist. Der Mensch ist ein ganzheitliches Wesen und unser Wohlbefinden und unsere Gesundheit wird von der Verkupplung dieser Elemente bestimmt. Wenn wir die Verbindung zwischen Körper und Geist anerkennen erkennen wir unser ganzes Sein an und können somit tiefgründige und fundierte Zufriedenheit und Gesundheit erlangen. In meiner Arbeit als Life Coach, Ernährungscoach und Yogalehrerin integriere ich immer die mentale und körperliche Ebene meiner Klienten. Wie und warum dies so wichtig ist kannst du in diesem Post lesen.

My Journey towards Becoming a Certified Relaxation Coach Part 2: Progressive Muscle Relaxation (PMR)

Sarah_Marcos_82

As part of my Relaxation Coach certification I did a training in Progressive Muscle Relaxation (PMR), a relaxation technique, which is especially suitable for people who find it difficult to relax or for those who easily fall asleep during relaxation exercises. This might sound contradictory at first, but I will explain further down why it isn’t. This weekend has yet again deepened my knowledge and understanding of stress and I learned another relaxation technique allowing me to offer a wide array of different techniques. I find it very important, because we are all different and different techniques work for different people.

Allow Your Body to Speak to You

FullSizeRender
Our thoughts rule our life. This is true for most of us, most of the time. We are guided by what we think we should or should not do and rarely allow our bodies and how we truly feel to guide us. This can lead to higher stress levels, lower levels of contentment and a feeling of imbalance. Working on allowing your body to speak to you can be done with simple techniques and will have a huge positive impact on your sense of self and overall well- being.

Choose Your Own Adventure In Life

Life. Why are we here, and what is our purpose?

People have tried to answer this complex question for all of human history, but I don’t know if any of us can ever do this. Is it even possible for there to be just one answer that works for everyone, or is there even a need to answer it at all. All I know is that we’re all here in this universe for a short period of time, and that life should be lived to the fullest. Each of us should be free to follow our own paths, pursue our own passions, and determine for ourselves what is of value.

Beginning A Yoga Practice: The Challenges & How to Overcome Them

290A0445

Many people who are looking to start yoga normally have two main concerns: where to start and the thought of not being flexible enough. Both of which can make yoga seem daunting. As a yogini, and particularly a yoga teacher hearing someone say “I can’t do yoga, I am not flexible enough” is one of the most bothersome things to hear. Only because the asana practice (postures) is not at all about being flexible! The practice of the postures is to help gain flexibility and strength within the body.

p1050753

After two and a half weeks in the US I am back in Germany for a few days before we will fly back to Tel Aviv, after three months abroad. My trip to the US has been inspiring on so many levels. I got to spend time in big cities and in the nature. The most important part and reason for the trip though was Boston, where I started the certification program to become an instructor for trauma sensitive yoga. Last week marked the beginning of the seven-month program, which left me feeling so excited for all the learning to come.
