A few months ago I started doing Ashtanga yoga when we were in Bali. {Read this post in Dutch}. We stayed at a place that was close to a yoga studio so it was really easy to practice every day. Ashtanga yoga is an intensive type of yoga but if you practice well and steady, it’s the perfect thing for your body. Yoga was the first sport I ever liked in my life. I noticed that my diet and life changed while doing more and more yoga. I didn’t like the greasy food anymore but went for the healthy stuff. Besides that, I stopped eating meat and that was, I think, the best deciscion I’ve ever made for my body.

When we left Bali I stopped doing yoga because it was too hard to practice besides our campervan in Australia and New Zealand. Have a look at this post where I show you how I tried to practice in a national park.

I definitely want yoga back into my life and do the practice every day again. First I need a house to live in and then a peaceful room which I can decorate as a meditation and yoga room. It is really helpful to create a room like that for yourself if you wish to practice at home a lot. A room that is free from all the daily clutter and makes you feel relaxed.

Meditation is part of yoga and maybe the most hardest thing I ever had to learn. It takes a lot of concentration and discipline to meditate.

Accessoires to meditate

What do you need in a meditation room? For example; a meditation pillow in a bright color, plain color, from Tibet or Nepal. Whatever you like. This pillow is to sit on and to feel relaxed, so try it before you buy it. Besides a pillow you can also use a meditation bench, bowls to make sounds and a meditation carpet for your room.
