Welcome to my blog – I am Lena, the author and owner behind this blog. What you will read here is what I learned, what I think, what I feel and my view and opinion of all the topics covered here.
I would even call it an online journal which is open to the public. That is maybe an unusual approach for a blog, but don’t you think that this may work? I have the feeling that we need more authentic people online to show how life really is, with all ups and downs.
These are the topics I love and lots is about Yoga or a yogic lifestyle. The “more” is my goodie to be able to post in the end about all what’s going on in my life. The more you think about it the more everything belongs to Yoga and Lifestyle because it’s my life as a yogi. I cannot separate the Yoga from my life as it is present in all I do.
Who are you?
Let me know who you are. This page can be the place to introduce yourself. Where are you from, how did you find me? I would have many questions but it’s up to you how much you want to tell me.
Please use the comment section to introduce yourself – of course only if you like to.
What would I wish for?
Interaction – lots of interaction as probably all blog owners would wish for. And here is the difference to other blogs, mindful and authentic interaction. Let’s share supportive answers. Please write comments which may help others. Please feel free to add your own experience or even whole story when it fits in.
I would like to see a community of readers who share what they have learned. What are your tricks to live a purposeful life? Do you have habits to stay fit? I would love to read your ideas on how to create a mindset which empowers others.
Is it too much to ask for? I hope not and I will work towards it with every single post I write and every single word I type.
Misssfaith (or better Mrsssfaith since 2013) is who?
When I started this blog I was thirty-something.
I was born in November 1977, so you can calculate 🙂 .
Being in my forties now will not stop me from acting goofy with my son and it definitely won’t stop me from listening to my inner child.
Yoga is a lifestyle. Yes, it includes asanas and requires practice, but Yoga itself is so much more than this and its benefits extend way beyond the boundaries of the mat.
I am a wife, a mother and professionally a clinical project manager. My family is my life and whilst my son steps from time to time with me on the mat, my husband still resists but supports me on my way.
Teaching Yoga on and beyond the mat is my passion. I want to share its impact and support you in your journey to lighten up spaces you may not yet have connected with. Yoga is the bigger picture, a holistic you, stronger in body and mind. I would love to help you.
In early 2011 I found yoga, from the start it was my anchor during rough times (situations everyone can relate to like work stress, private issues, heart ache, loneliness – generalised here but unique and personal, with its own challenges to each of us). I want to extend to you an anchor.
Nobody is alone, we all walk on stony ways and that’s OK.
Yoga is not about perfecting the flow from pose to pose. It is about finding peace in your body, your mind and your soul, to become truly one with who YOU are.
I practiced lots, on and off the mat, until I finally decided to become a certified yoga teacher and started the 200 hour yoga teacher training.
And here I am, embarking on a new journey to teach, to find my way and my style of delivery; adapting to help you discover the opportunities that await. I look forward to working with you to share my love of yoga through a series of tailored partnerships as unique as you are.
My husband is libyan and I am german – this binational marriage is wonderful as you learn so much about the other culture and black-white thinking isn’t possible. Our son joined us in 2016, the mommy life is another wonderful challenge and surely influences my writing as well.
If you want to know more you are welcome to ask.
Enjoy my blog and I hope you like it – Namaste ॐ
Oh – and why the three s’s? Sincere, sarcastic, satya (which is Sanskrit and means honest and truthful) but sleepy would fit as well 🙂
Ok, I know, I told you that I am attending a yoga teacher training and of course I think that everyone needs yoga. Cliché? Maybe, maybe not.
It’s not easy to answer a question like that because obviously Yoga Teachers need students to teach and the more a teacher can teach the more he earns.
But believe it, there are still people on this planet who are NOT fully focused on financial success.
I would lie if I tell you that a yoga teacher does not want to earn money, of course, like for anyone else money is needed to cover costs, to live, eat, stay warm. But one truth is that not every yoga teacher wants to earn ridiculously high amounts to afford a beach house in the Caribbean, a yoga temple in the jungle or a fancy studio in Manhattan. There are teachers who love to teach, simple as that, who work to see students succeed on their own personal path.
Let’s start a wave of positivity rolling over the web – there must be more people out there who are compassionate and empathic and nice than the ones who are not.
For every nice reply to a mean comment add the hashtag #BeThePeaceYouWantToSee Who is with me? I can’t take it any longer that mean and harsh comments remain uncommented and instead of starting war we just are as we would all to be, peaceful and positive!
Hello Lockdown 2.0
Here we go, in the beginning / middle of the second wave we start lockdown 2.0 in Germany.
We went through the first lockdown in March/April and it feels somehow like an old companion and somehow weird and new.
Our life has changed profoundly in 2020 and still we remain somehow the same.
