foggy morning yoga

I woke up on Monday morning to the smell of fresh coffee and my husband singing to himself in the kitchen. We were staying with my mom who had already left for work. When I entered the living room, still rubbing the sleep off my eyes, I noticed the thick fog outside and wanted to get to the lake before we’d lose the magical atmosphere. We were the only two people out on the lake. Cold and quiet. Inner warmth. Fresh air cleansing the lungs. The world, the past and the future, invisible, blurred. Just the breath and the body.

The spring sun is already shining over Brussels, so I’ll quickly throw in some wintery pictures from my recent trip to Finnish Lapland. While Bikram yoga is drawing the crowds into hot studios, I decided to try Snowga: The perfect way to practice heartwarming asanas and fill up the lungs with fresh air while connecting with the surrounding winter nature. Namaste.
