There's always peace in nature - We are all just visitors on this earth. We are passing through. We live. We observe. We breathe. We learn. We study. We work. We grow. We live. We travel. We create. We change.
Everything will fade away as the days are passing by, but memories will last a lifetime 🌸🙏🌞 ... See MoreSee Less
Take a few deep breaths
Let go of what you think you should do
Let go of where you think you should be
Take a few deep breaths
Life will give you exactly what you need

Earlier today when I was having my coffee I received a sudden message from an old friend asking me how I'm doing on the other side and if all is well. It brought back great memories and thoughts about how much has happened over the years, but it also made me realize how much friends means to me. Not just a "superficial coffee friend", but those real friends whom you know always will be there for you no matter what. Those friends who understand you for who you are. Who accept you and who are real inside out. Those friends who will never judge you if you can't make it for an appointment. Those great friends who understand you if you're exhausted and have to cancel a meet-up or can't make it for a birthday dinner. Those friends who offer you help and are there for you whether you're near or far. Simply true and honest friendships.
We don't find many of these nowadays. But the friendships that stay in our life will always be the same, even when life passes by real quick, circumstances change and there's little time.
Cheers to life, good friends and amazing people 🌸🙏🌞 ... See MoreSee Less
Love this view. Wish I could jump into the pool and splash around a bit 🌞. Instead I'll appreciate the view and let the customers enjoy the refreshing bliss.
Have a wonderful day ahead, and don't forget to smile 🌞 ... See MoreSee Less
It's rare I do headstands nowadays, and I hardly ever teach headstand either. You'll never see me "showing off" when I teach. My focus is my students and the people who's on the mat in front of me. Most "normal people" who want to practice yoga come to feel better not to be pushed or told that headstand is an important yoga pose. It's not really that important, although you'll often hear teachers say that headstand is "the King of Asanas (yoga poses). I don't agree at all.
Yoga needs to be brought down to earth, exactly where it belongs. Yoga scares people away because we often think that we have to be flexible and be able to do advanced poses before we can start Yoga or join a Yoga Retreat. Not at all. Yoga is for all types of bodies, all age groups and all abilities. If done correctly and with awareness you'll soon see amazing benefits like - more energy, lightness in the body, more open, more toned, stronger and a sense of mental peace and bliss. Aim for that and forget about constant competition, constant doing, constant pushing, constant results.
Bring your life down to earth, live peacefully and respect your body instead of killing it by always pushing and stressing it. Calm down inside and you'll feel the magic real soon 🌞🙏🌸 ... See MoreSee Less
Moroccan colors. Marrakech is particularly full of colors. Interior, buildings, the nature, carpets, tiles, even the sky is always blue! Have you ever noticed how you feel around certain colors? Blue for example is considered relaxing and calm. Maybe that's why I felt relaxed earlier today when I was waiting for a customer looking at this colorful blue couch with its matching pillows and wall 🌟.
I really like colors, but I never wear colorful clothes. I think it's the Danish in me. Seriously, if you ever go to Denmark you'll realize that everyone always wears either black or grey. I'm guilty of that. Even after 10 years living away from Denmark and being surrounded by colors in the Mediterranean cultures and Moroccan culture where most people wear colorful clothes and everything seems brighter, I still go for darker colors and mostly wear black or grey 😀. Good thing is that I don't have to look at grey and rainy weather everyday! The sky in Marrakech is always bright blue, it's a natural mood and energy booster. As long as I have blue around me, I'm happy. Maybe it's about time to color up my closet too 😁. ... See MoreSee Less
This is me in the summer - always with a gelato in my hand. Still a little girl inside 😁. Some days I have 2 scoops, other days 4 scoops. You will not see me wearing beach summer clothes in Morocco. In fact, I'm really pale and have zero sun tan here in Morocco because I always wear long jeans, cover my legs and usually my arms or wear a T-shirt.
No tops and shorts here, although you can wear anything you want.
The photo is from around 3 years ago. I was always barefoot if I could. Had a little car. I loved to drive without shoes. Flip flops and summer clothes was so easy. Lived 6 years in Fuerteventura. Lived by the ocean. Learned to speak Spanish. Was teaching Yoga and organizing retreats.
Nothing much has changed. Still Yogi-Gelato Sally 😁. I do however miss to wear shorts and tops and more light clothes in the summer heat. However, each place has its own way and habits. Although you can wear whatever you want in Morocco, I just don't feel it's appropriate to walk around in shorts and mini dresses here.
Respect and awareness is everything, and also something many people lack. Observe the culture you're in. Be mindful and respectful, and remember that each place has its plus and minus.
As of now, I have been able to get amazing gelato in every place I've lived, even in Marrakech. As long as I have great quality gelato, fantastic coffee and yummy bread, I'm happy in any place 😁😋 ... See MoreSee Less
The dry summer heat can be brutal in Marrakech. Hot weather slows our body down. We naturally feel more tired and drained. I'm usually fine with the heat, but today I feel particularly lazy and slow. I find it hard to teach Yoga when it's brutally hot. The indoor spaces pump up the AC to an insane level that's actually worse than the heat itself. I try to avoid AC altogether if I can. A fan is often useful. Or early morning Yoga classes.
When I see someone go for a run in such extreme heat I can't help but wonder if the person is sane.
In hot weather it's okay to do less and not to stress about it. It's okay to feel it's hard to get up in the morning to teach classes. It's okay to feel you have zero power to get to your 5pm private class. I do however prefer hot weather than cold, rainy and windy Danish summer weather. One of the reasons why I left Denmark 10 years ago was because of the miserable weather. Always cold, grey and rainy. In the heat I can cool down with lots of gelato (I have it every day by the way 😋), eat lots of light foods, take cold showers, put the fan on and eat more gelato 😁.
Wishing you all a lovely summer wherever you are 🌸🌞🙏 ... See MoreSee Less
