Os mitos que formam esse grande mito chamado medo: Mytho Celebration e a celebração do EU

Novo episódio do podcast urbanista com uma pessoa e projecto muito #badass: digam olá à Ana Pinto Ribeiro e ao Mytho Celebration, um evento que celebra a vida sem rótulos. Conclusão deste episódio? Não adiar os sonhos, aprender a parar, respirar, focar no meio do caos e da confusão. Não ceder. Sonhar e seguir em frente.

The magical: how yoga changed my life (ep. 20)

On the last episode of this podcast series I wonder about types of yoga and the importance of choosing what suits you best, according to your needs, your feel and what you expect to get from practicing yoga. I travel through different types of yoga practice in an attempt to find the one that suits me best...

An urban girl falling in love with the countryside, cherishing the nature and the wild, playing with the nature sounds and feeling more grateful than ever. Does it make sense? 

Probably not but this urban girl with a crush for the ocean is slowly converting herself to something hard to describe that she can only understand through yoga. Have you ever wondered what might happen to your heart if you start practicing yoga?

How do you find the time to practice yoga?... 
Based on a instagram post from a couple of days ago, on today's episode I'm exploring the idea that you don't have to find the time for it as you start practicing, yoga starts finding you...

Thank you so much to those who follow and mostly, to those who take the time to comment my posts! Find out how and why pressing the play button. Namaste ♡

Gratitude is a fancy-trendy-cool word to express our inner feeling of appreciating something done or received. If used with an hashtag it's also a show-off that can place you among others, even if you can't truly recognise it. I know it because for some time I had an incredible trouble to actually feel grateful for a n y t h i n g. I felt thankful which isn't exactly the same. It was yoga who helped me resonating the true meaning of gratitude and I couldn't be more grateful for it. To yoga and to those who have been part of my life leading me to find this amazing practice. Namaste.

On today's episode I'm sharing my experience with Carla Ferraz, a certified coach by the International University of Yoga, concerning High-Performance & Mindfulness. I've been practicing yoga with her for the couple of months and it has been an incredible experience. She helps you through the full practice while allowing you to grow and become self-sufficient in your practice and challenging you all the way. It's been an amazing journey which I'm very grateful for.

Thank you Carla ♡

BookCast #8: livros para ler no jardim (agora que o sol voltou...)

O melhor de cada episódio - por muito que nos esforcemos - acontece durante a gravação e não se consegue ouvir. É o gato que me passa entre as pernas, os enganos que nos fazem dar gargalhadas (e que cortamos), mais as que deixamos porque simplesmente, fazem parte de quem somos e deste bookcast. Sou eu a fazer sinais à Helena para acelerar a descrição e ela a dizer na gravação que a estou a mandar calar, ou a chamar-me daltónica porque não consegue ver que uma capa é cor de laranja (ou ocre, ou tijolo, ou...). É isto, e o amor aos livros, que nos faz continuar, mais as vossas mensagens com sugestões, mais algo que não sabemos explicar e que, só quem faz um podcast, pode compreender. Desta vez decidimos falar de livros para ler no jardim - à sombra, porque somos mulheres de pele muito sensível - e, por isso, escolhemos daqueles que nos agarram ao primeiro parágrafo ou pequenas histórias que conseguimos ler antes do pôr-do-sol...

Eu escolhi os menos românticos porque, sinceramente, não há nada de romântico na Internet, na forma como invadiu as nossas vidas, alterando-as e provocando uma dependência que, na verdade, não existe. Ao contrário, há todo um romantismo associado ao silêncio, que já aqui abordei, do qual Erling Kagge fala no seu livro. Agora que o sol voltou, escolham uma destas opções e aproveitem um dos feriados para... ler no jardim ♡

From where I stand, I see room for many improvements in this picture ... More engaged tights, core and butt and a longer back, instead of this sort of camel back!

This is yoga: constant improvement with less judgment. What I post on social media is meant to inspire and share a journey, it’s not part of a competition or defined for showing off. These aren’t pics of my real practice, it’s usually something I do with no warm up to illustrate how yoga is important to my life!

The magical: how yoga changed my life (ep. 12)

Today I decided to go bold and recorded this episode at the park. My #lovelyRita was playing close to me while I was minding my own business and staring at the horizon... I started practicing yoga, using it as a way to visualize and explain to you how to introduce yoga in your daily life.
The sound isn't amazing and you can hear all sort of background noises that surrounded me at the park but it might be worth listening to if you're trying to start practicing yoga and don’t know how and where to start!

I can tell you that even if I was recording it, it still was pretty relaxing...

The magical: how yoga changed my life (ep. 8)

There’s one thing that scares me like hell. That one that resonates like no other does: are we making the right decision? We never now if the choice is right but still, we must keep moving. The power to say NO is absolutely challenging and invigorating. I used to accept a lot of things that I didn't really want until the day I as able to say no, thanks. I am not interested. 
When did you last say NO to something you don't want, to be able to say YES to something you really want?...

Try it: take a listen and get some thoughts on the power to say NO ♡

The magical: how yoga changed my life (ep. 6)

On todays episode...

I saw it coming and decided to be bold and make an unusual choice. I didn’t quit my job, moved to Bali or, contrary the monk, I had no Ferrari to sell. But I changed so much in the last 3 years that I feel the need to spread the word and help others who might feel as I once felt, telling the world that it’s up to you, by changing small aspects of your life that turn into a real change...
