I´ve started Yoga because of my scoliosis and it helped me so much with my back pain. I have been practicing for 3 years. I also suffer from high blood pressure since my childhood and on some days i´m extremely nervous, anxious and stressed. Yoga helped me immensely with these problems. As soon as i step on my mat, i can feel how all the anxiety and tension fall off.
It depends on my mood but mostly i browse through some chillout playlists on Spotify.
“If you’re connected to the body, you’ll be present in the mind.”
The yoga practice seeks to answer the question of what defines the present moment and help root your consciousness directly in it. I have to admit, that i am not a naturally present person but through my yoga practice I have learned how to turn fear into compassion for example and more importantly how to embrace the present moment.
That i can do everything. It only need patience and practice. For example: when i started practicing i was so impressed by girls who are able to practice pincha mayurasana. My body wasn´t strong enough to hat time and i doubted if i´ll ever be able to master this Asana. But after some month i finally found the balance and my body gained so much strenght because i practiced everyday. I can remember how happy i was! And i still am.
This summer we want to travel to Skiathos. I totally love Greece and Skiathos seems like such a breathtaking place with it´s beautiful beaches & scenic landscapes.
That´s a difficult question! Maybe my great-great-Grandmother. I still have my Granny and great-Granny around me but of course i never met my great-great-granny. She lived in Russia before she came to Austria douring the war and i would love to learn the russian language from her.
Maybe from Disney´s Aladdin- a whole new world
Sun protection- because i guess on a deserted island it´s really hot! A good book, i love reading. And a knife- i can use it to open coconuts 😀
In Carinthia we have a food called “Kärntner Käsnudel” and my Grandma makes me this food very often. Käsnudel is basically a dough made of flour, egg, a little oil and salt wrapped around a filling of curd cheese, pressed potatoes and fresh herbs. You roll out the dough and form small balls out oft he curd- potatoe stuffing and put it on the dough, fold the dough, press the edges with your fingers and place the noodles into hot water. They are similar to dumplings!
