Yoga Teacher Training London: My Research

Hello & Hallo,

I love yoga! I just do! I love to go to classes – by myself or with friends (weekend yoga & brunch is the best, right?!). I bore my friends & family talking about yoga. I read about yoga. You get the gist ūüėĄ

So finally, last summer I decided to look into Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) Рjust out of curiosity…boy, did this send me on a mission! There are hundreds of studios & providers offering Yoga Teacher Trainings and various different formats & length Рintensive for a few weeks, over a few month or even years. And YTTs are very, very, VERY expensive Рagain to varying from course to course . 

SO MUCH CHOICE! Where do you start?! What do you do?!

I was quite vigilant & systematic in my approach (typical me, typical German?!) doing online research & going to info events and want to share what I found.

London in 2 1/2 Days

Hello & Hallo,

A few weeks ago my dad visited me in London for the very first time. Not just his first time visiting me in my new home but coming to London at all.

As he had never been to¬†London we covered¬†all the tourist attractions possible. But I also showed my dad what I love about London.¬†He was only here¬†from Thursday night to Sunday afternoon – a short stay! …I tried to cover as much of this amazing city as possible!

Day 1

The Morning at Borough Market: Borough Market has a great atmosphere & there is so much to see & smell. We spend a a while wondering around here taking it all in. This was the highlight for my dad!

Anniversary / Jahrestag

Hello & Hallo,

3 years ago TODAY I moved to London! It is crazy how fast time goes by and the last 3 years feel long & short at once. Short because it passed so quickly & long because so much has happened РI graduated and got my MA in Media & Communications (the reason I moved here in the 1st place), I got a job & changed jobs and I moved.

This year my anniversary or Jahrestag in German feels different…as if it has got more weight &¬†importance attached to it. I tried to pin down the reason for this and¬†I think I now know why.

This year Рnow РLondon actually feels like home! I am not just staying here for a bit. I am living here and will continue to live & build a live here. I am here to stay & I am happy about this!

Bring on the next 3 years!

Bye & Tsch√ľss,

Marlene

Hello & Hallo!

This is it! I have finally manage to a) get a blog & b) write my first ever post! Yay!

MeI am Marlene ‚Äď Berliner by birth &¬†Londoner by choice. I love Berlin and it is where I have my roots. I moved to London in September 2011¬†and this amazing city is now my 2nd¬†home. So the name ‚ÄúLondonBerlin‚ÄĚ feels appropriate for this blog.

This blog will be about my live and anything & everything I care and think about ‚Äď what I do, what I want to do & what I have done in the past. I will write about what I cook (I love to cook), what I do on a weekend or holiday, what I like (fashion / beauty / films / book / etc) and what I plan for my future.

I am looking forward to starting this journey and to some of you join me.

Bye & Tsch√ľss,

Marlene
