Carolina and her yoga retreat in Menorca

One of the people that have impacted me the most during my yoga teacher training at Tula Amsterdam is Carolina. She’s kind and soft, warm and witty; one of those people one immediately likes. Now that the training has passed I must admit that it wasn’t an easy period for me. It was a time of big changes and uncertainties in my life and I felt disconnected and anxious more often than not. Moreover, a yoga teacher training can be a very confronting experience in which your shortcomings get so exposed in your eyes, and any emotion present may feel like it’s double its size. Carolina’s presence was soothing. We got together to practice, she met my mother, and we even got the chance to do a yoga photoshoot together. When she announced she had to take the final exam earlier because she was going back to Spain, I felt pained at first. Continue reading “Carolina and her yoga retreat in Menorca”

Agenda

When What Where – last days of July

WWW is a cultural agenda focused on art, music, lesser-known cultural venues, sustainability, community events & self-development. With a soft spot for world-music and multicultural events. 

Dear friends,

One of the best-known feelings for bloggers like me – who don’t pay their rent from blogging – is guilt. Whenever you’re late with your blog posts or spend a long time in radio silence, you feel like a fraud. I really had to prioritize work that pays bills this past month though, hence this half-month cultural agenda. Better late than never, they say where I come from – I abide by that rule. Those of you who are subscribed to the newsletter have received some suggestions for July in their mailbox – the newsletter has priority over everything else – so if you’re one of those who don’t want to miss a thing, make sure to sign up for it.

So, what does the second half of July has to offer us? Find all about it out below.
Have a gorgeous summer y’all!

Sunday yoga in the park

Wake up to the Sunday morning, hop on your bike, cycle to the park, and feel the smell of the trees around you, listen to the chirping of birds, feel the wind breeze. It’s spring, and we’re at the Oosterpark. It’s 10 a.m. and unlike later on in the afternoon, it is quiet over here, and there’s SPACE. My friend Catarina from All In Yoga is about to start the class. As much as I love dancing the night out, the feeling of starting the day early, and in this fashion, is incomparable.

Dear all,

After a week of silence, our cultural agenda is back! And you know what I learned from this week of absence? I can’t miss my own agendas anymore. I have never been a great planner and, at a certain point, I was just overscheduling myself, and having to cancel things last minute. I started putting these together for the sake of my own organization so I would have an overview of my week leisure-wise. Other than that, I wanted to have a link to redirect my friends, when they asked me about “plans for the weekend”. Here’s the menu for this week, for your amusement.

Yoga is the road. Tula, the vehicle.

It is 09.30 in the morning. My backpack is ready. There’s a laptop in there, yoga clothes, maybe a portable breakfast if I didn’t have the time to eat it before leaving the house. I hop on my bike, get out of the Staadsliedenbuurt, cycle across the Westerpark – that fresh morning wind bringing me back to life -, and then I find this tiny bridge which welcomes me into the Spaarndammerbuurt. In the wink of an eye I am unlocking the door of Tula Yoga.
