This is one of those posts that I actually wrote a while ago and I’m about to re-visit, re-write and finally post. It is about yoga and Instagram and the whole culture around it, which I’m in between two minds about. I warn you now, it is a pretty long post, sorry about that! It … More Reservations about Instayoga and 3 yogi-types I unfollowed
This one makes post number 50, and it might be a special one. Mainly because I haven’t written for more than six months now, since February this year.

Hello there! This is the anti-fit post, because as much as I like to write about yoga and exercise, the truth is that this summer has not been the fittest for me, despite being very much fun. More social plans, less Instagram challenges and the half marathon approaching fast (it’s actually next week!) left me … More A summer of little yoga (and not that much running)

During that period, I must admit I didn’t spend much time doing yoga. I’m not great at self-practising when I’m out … More Observations after a month yoga break
Since I started to post yoga pictures on social media, probably the most common question I’ve been asked by my friends has been How long have you been practising?

It first popped into my brain when I watched the beautiful and striking video below, featured … More Yoga journey – or How long have you been practising?
I’ve been doing yoga for over a year now. After having tried five different studios, and practised with numerous yoga teachers, I’ve come up with a selection of the teacher qualities I appreciate the most as a yoga student. In my yogi-beginner opinion, a good yoga teacher…. Makes you aware of your feelings Almost all the yoga … More Best (and worst) qualities of a yoga teacher
Social media and the boom of internet in general have changed our lives in many ways. Despite I’m in most of the bigger social networks now, I’ve never been a “pioneer” among my friends signing up. In fact, both with Facebook and Instagram, I firstly was a bit reluctant to open an account. “I waste … More Yoga and the “narcisim” of social media
What gives the title to this blog, “Be Like Yoga” is a concept that got into my mind slowly as I started to practise yoga more regularly, at the very end of 2015. Actually it will be my anniversary in like a week 🙂 As I explained in another post, the time when I started yoga was … More What do you mean by “Be Like Yoga”?
