Caroline's Endo Story

Ever since my first period I’ve experienced lower stomach pain and heavy bleeding. So my gynecologist prescribed me the pill very early on. Even though I was on birth control for almost 10 years I still had awful period pain and my body started holding fluids. When I was 23 I decided to get a chopper IUD. After a year of trying very hard to make the IDU work I had it removed because the pain was just too bad.

A Love Letter to my Body

Dear body, I am sorry I was treating you poorly for years, not acknowledging all the miraculous things you do for me for every breath I take. I am sorry I considered you my worst enemy for years, restricting you food and essential nutrients, putting toxins on and inside you while pretty much starving you out, punishing you for being amazing?! - I know you must be mad but I promise I will make it up to you. I appreciate you and am grateful for you at last. Albert Einstein once said, “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle.

Reflections 2018

t’s that time of the year again. I guess it’s needless to say that I had so many plans but it all turned out very different. I’ve kinda lost and found myself again. I also lost things and people that previously were important to me and found others who are important to me now. I had gained 10 pounds and lost 15. I had evolved a lot in my physical yoga practice only to fall sick again and being unable to do things anymore that had previously worked so hard on. In fact my illness played a big part in 2018…

Self-Worth vs Ego on Instagram

Now I’m not a very like-based person I’m mostly here for fun and the connection but I still wanted to take some time to talk about this today. I get tons of likes posting a yoga pose but whenever I post a recipe my reach goes down drastically. As I am coming from the field of Online Marketing I completely understand. And I used to constantly delete pictures of my feed that didn’t make the cut & felt shitty about whenever I didn’t get “enough likes“ but ever since falling sick the second time I don’t care so much anymore…

The Fear of Commitment

I have been self-analyzing myself for the longest time now, constantly trying to improve in some ways or areas of life and trying to find myself, while blogging about life, yoga, women’s health etc. I’ve had this website for over a year now and this is the third time I changed my name. This time it had stick, it should really show my soul in its purest essence. So I ended up changing it into my actual REAL name, which was probably one of the scariest things I have ever done to be honest.

Name Change

(…) Yet this does not mean I’m not working as a yoga teacher anymore or won’t ever post pictures of yoga poses again. But I want to go beyond yoga poses from now on! While I was unable to practice at all due to my endo I felt like I kinda lied to everyone on IG doing crazy sweaty vinyasa flows everyday…

27 Fun Facts about Caroline

As I’m turning 27 pretty soon here are 27 random fun facts about me: 1: My parents claim that I was made in France but born in Germany. 2: My zodiac sign is an aquarius & thus I love being in the water or at the beach listening to the soothing sound of the waves crashing on shore.  3: Being at the beach somewhere in the tropics is where I belong.
