Still learning: … in the initial phase of a yoga Bow Pose, building strength and flexibility in the back

A couple of weeks ago I started doing yoga again. It was like seeing an old friend, who you don’t realize how much you have missed. Until you meet the person again!

I have been lucky to discover the most wonderful yoga place. Yogafactory.eu is located in Copenhagen Hellerup, only 6 km/3,7 miles from inner city Copenhagen – easy to get there both by train or car.

Entering Yogafactory is like entering a peaceful and quiet gem. The moment I’m inside the door, my shoulders drop instantly and my entire body starts to relax.

Sweet welcoming entrance

The sign at the entrance is funny – and true:

Funny because it's true

Even inside the class room there’s beauty for your eyes everywhere you look:

Lovely yoga elements

At Yogafactory you can practice the new and popular Aerial yoga with inspiration from New York:

So far I’ve only been doing traditional yoga at Yogafactory, but I plan on taking an Aerial yoga class in the beginning of the new year.

Lovely organic products from Danish Rudolph Care in the waiting room. And at the restrooms…

Wise words

Wise words, that make you stop and think about how you live your life. Personally the words inspire me to slow down and appreciate all the good in my life, including to start seeing all the good things in my life!

Let’s celebrate life and each other xx

Katrine’s Corner: Christmas Party at Admiral Hotel

Hi everybody and merry Christmas. Last Friday I was attending a snowball Christmas Party with my colleagues from Canal Digital, so I have come into the Christmas mood :) The Party was held at Admiral Hotel in Copenhagen, which was a beautiful place to hold a Party. I really loved the cozy environment and also the food, which consisted of Danish Christmas buffet, tasted really good.

After the dinner, there was a live band playing pop music from the 80s, so I spent most of the evening and night on the dance floor. I love to dance, it makes me feel alive, and I had so much fun while I sang along to “Last Christmas” and a lot of other classics. Sadly it was my last Party with my colleagues from Canal Digital, because I am moving to Sofia (more on that later), so even though it was fun, it was also a bit sad.

Before the Party my friend, Nihal, and I got our hair done at Hair Boutique in Brønshøj. The hairdresser Gønul is really talented and she gets my warmest recommendations.
