The ashtanga yoga magic

Hello friends, I’ve been away for a while, as you might know already. I honestly needed some time off. I share so much of myself with the world, that from time to time, I need to pause. Away from the blog  I had the time to invest more energy into other creative tasks and focus […]

A path of struggle – From ignorance to light

Oh dear, if only I knew how difficult this path will be! I still remember that moment in our little Krakow apartment when Clau, all of a sudden, got fed up into encouraging me to stay in my sweet comfort zone of ignorance and started shaking the hell out of me. She made me fall […]

Ashtanga Yoga between confusions and doubts

Here I am in our living room where all this craziness (and journey of the most meaningful thing I’ve ever done in my life) started. I cannot believe it is only two years since it all started to take shape. I feel so much has happened during these only two years. I have worked so hard […]
