Off to a different 2021! The last hours of 2020 are here…a year has gone by so fast, a year that has been far away…
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 🙂
Mindfulness – Where to Start
One big topic in the whole mindfulness area is “Searching for Peace within”.
This is what spiritual masters are telling us. You can buy stickers telling everyone that peace is to be found within yourself. The truth is, the majority of people is living with a chaos within instead.
I am one of them. I try to tame the chaos, sometimes more and sometimes less. It depends on my mood, the time I find just for myself and on how I feel.
When I’m relaxed I don’t bother myself with the search for something higher. I assume that there seems to be at least a bit of peace inside of me as otherwise I wouldn’t be relaxed, right?
An extra very merry Christmas
This year was extreme in all directions and I have not much left to say other than wishing for a better 2021 for everyone.
Enjoy the quiet Christmas days, indulge in good food, Christmas movies, books, whatever brings you peace and joy.
What I would like to do today is adding a bit more gratitude to everything. We often get occupied in the festivities and in the end everyone is stressed and tries to put a smile on the face – why not slowing down a bit.
Being right… … is not a virtue – being kind is. Just a little reminder at times where people start discussing for multiple reasons. Be…
Two weeks until Christmas
Unbelievable, isn’t it?
This year started with so many hopes and dreams and all of a sudden we reached the end of this year.
Two weeks until Christmas literally means that I would start now to run in circles, going to malls, into the city, do the Christmas shopping. But instead, instead I sit here and type patiently. A hot steaming tea on my left side, part of a chocolate Santa on the right side. My husband went outside with our son, it’s just me and my thoughts.
Two weeks – normally that sounds short and like not enough time left, but this year nothing is normal. If you ask people to go two weeks into quarantine it sounds for them like a lifetime.
What happened this year seems like a massive slow down
A slow down with different names, lockdown, partly lock down, quarantine, light lockdown, in the end all had the very same effect, they slowed down our life. And sure, one can start now to complain because it took the economy down, many people struggle, but I don’t want to focus on the bad and rather focus on the positive. There are lots of positive effects all this had. You need to open your eyes and your mind and I am sure you will start to see them.
