Tell us a little bit about your work?
Yoga del Mar is a new yoga studio right by the sea in Portixol. Together we have fulfilled our dream and opened this home for body, mind & soul.
At Yoga del Mar you can practice yoga and meditation with a sea view, a fresh island breeze and the sounds of the waves. You can receive a nurturing massage, or the Yoga del Mar experience combining a personal yoga session with a massage treatment.
The vision of Yoga del Mar is to be more than a yoga studio, it is to be a lifestyle that stands for creativity, like-minded people and love for this island and the ocean.
We also offer monthly day retreats, music circles and private yoga sessions at the studio, at the beach, your home, finca or hotel!
What did you have for breakfast today?
YASMIN & NINA: After teaching my yoga session we had a delicious Açaí Bowl on our ‘chill out patio’ at Yoga del Mar.
What does your morning routine look like?
YASMIN: I get up VERY early, then I try to squeeze in my Ashtanga Yoga practice before the kids’ wake up 😉 Then, I have a shower, get some fresh air on the terrace while drinking a Rooibos tea or Organic Olive Latte from my friends Dosalquemistas while planning the agenda, classes & events for Yoga del Mar. Then the daily mom’s life craziness starts!
NINA: I also get up early for some self-practice – some asanas, meditation and breathing. For me, it is very important to make space for personal discipline in order to teach from a place of balance. Then I get my son ready for school and walk to the studio. I live just around the corner and every day I step on the promenade of Portixol my heart beats faster. To live by the ocean is such a great gift to me.
What is your number one health habit?
YASMIN: Practice yoga, spend time in nature, drink lots of water, and laugh a lot with my wonderful family!
NINA: Same here 🙂 Yoga, meditation, to be surrounded by wonderful beings, to be in nature and breathe fresh air. The simple things in life.
What is your guilty pleasure?
YASMIN: Chocolate, and long hot showers.
NINA: Coffee and cookies, especially together!
What’s one book or podcast you’d recommend everyone read/listen to?
YASMIN: Bhagavad Gita
Each time I read the Bhagwad Gita, I learn something new. It seems as if I am reading it for the first time, although I have read it many times. lt is an ocean. It’s not just a book, it’s a library.
It emphasizes the various yogas—ways in which humanity can deal with the ever-changing world and the emotions of the mind. It deals with the pathways to wisdom and with humanity’s relationship to the ultimate Reality. It is an essential spiritual text because it establishes a person’s right to question everything.
NINA: I love the talks by Osho. He was such a great Master, who gave amazing insights on meditation and life. That might not be what people remember him by, but when you listen to his recordings and practice the meditation techniques he developed, you will realize how truly profound his teachings were. They personally inspired me a lot.
