I left the corporate world, ignored the fear in my mind and went with the feeling in my gut. Booked a one way ticket to Costa Rica and went where the wild and free things are. Stayed and became one of them. I fully immersed myself into Yoga, surfing and the outdoors. Along my way, I found my tribe and many great teachers. Some of the best in the world. Inspiring, courageous humans – that soon became good friends.
It´s not too often in life that you meet people who challenge you to grow, to make decisions that build character, to lead with your heart wide open, to tune into your intuition and to have faith in and trust the process. I was right where I was meant to be. And did not leave for 5 months and then continued on this journey for another 5 months to Bali. Everything I wanted was there. I was so happy, Radiantly shining; and full of energy. Totally connected to my source. The confirmation of my friends and coaches encouraged me to turn my life towards a more meaningful direction. To live that shine. That´s why I have created Shine-Yoga – mindful Yoga and high vibe retreats.
By now, I´ve lived more than two years Costa Rica, Bali or Ibiza. It was a smooth journey. Not a revolution rather an evolution. Everything that evolves deeply takes time. I discovered and slowly peeled off the limited belief systems, social rules, conditioning and structures that I had been taught for years at School, university and higher education. Higher education in the western world isn’t necessarily essential for a happy life. Don´t get me wrong, I am blessed and deeply grateful to have that education, to understand both sides (the western world and ancient traditions, spiritual practices, eastern philosophies) and now know how to combine the best of these worlds, to change my perspective and enhance my and others quality of life in the best way.
Through all of this, I was able to cultivate a strong connection to my intuition (that genuine, powerful, but quiet voice, deep inside of you). This journey really gave me the time and space to really figure out what I am meant to do. I was able to get really clear on my WHAT, HOW & WHY – and right now it feels so good. Plus I cultivated the courage to put my dreams into a vision and this vision into action.
