About me

Singer – Yogi – Traveller – Music lover

So, what am I going to write about?
I was thinking about this the other day and figured I’ll write whatever comes to mind for a start and then see what the blog turns in to with time. So no “theme” for the time being.

It’ll certainly be a bit of what’s going on in my life here, experiences in Dubai so that my friends and family back home can stay up-to-date.
But I’ll also write about my passions and my ever-growing range of interests which are starting to form quite a long list nowadays.

I’m passionate about Ashtanga Yoga. Totally addicted, yoga makes me feel so good physically and mentally. I practice every day or 6 times a week at Yoga Room here in JLT with my wonderful teacher Joumana.

Along with this I’ve developed an interest for well-being, mindfulness and healthy eating. I guess they kinda go hand in hand. One of my favorite blogs is MindBodyGreen.com, there’s so many interesting articles, check it out!

A new addition to my interests is juicing and making green smoothies! I’m very hooked on how good it makes me feel and also how it affects my mind and body. I start off my mornings with warm water and lemon and after that a green smoothie. Pre or post yoga I make myself a veggie juice. There’s such an interesting selection of fruit and vegetables here in Dubai and it’s so cheap compared to back home. Luxury.

Other hobbies include: running, going for walks around the lakes in JLT with Nala our dog, paddle boarding, drinking espresso martinis on our balcony and chatting away with good friends, going out dancing in Dubai, listening to live music and being inspired by talented colleagues, relaxing in the sun with a good book and cozy evenings at home with my husband watching movies (we’re movie junkies).

So I guess all of this will form what my blog will eventually be. I’ve been really lousy at taking pictures the past half year but I promise to try to be better at this. :)

I’ll also make a “favorites” list of things to do and see in Dubai. Please feel free to ask if you have any questions!

    • Hi 🙂 Sorry for the late reply. At the moment I’m practicing yoga at home. I’m waiting for a new Ashtanga Yoga studio to open in JLT (close to where I live) https://www.facebook.com/YogaRoomDubai?fref=ts
      I’ve also heard there’s a good place in Media City called Zen Yoga, but they seem to provide a mix of different yoga’s..
      I miss it too, a lot. I used to go several times a week during the summer in my home country. Hopefully the Yoga Room opens soon! 🙂

      I checked out your blog and noticed we have a lot of similar interests. I enjoyed reading it! Take care 🙂 Johanna
