Mystical creatures

“I believe in everything until its disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all excists, even if its in your mind. Who´s to say that dreams and nightmares aren ´t as real as HERE and NOW!?”
(John Lennon)

A cage is no place for someone like that.
“I play with the fire of my own truth, ” she told me,
“I will burn for the things I Love!”
(Mia Hollow)

“We are thousand galaxies compressed in one body. We are fire, light, power, beauty! We are the spidery stars and the blazing fireballs that explode under our skin. We are the wings that await the drug of flight. We are strong as the sea and limitless as the sky!
And theres no reason to think otherwise!

I love walking and I love it way more than Im afraid of falling.

I have been thinking about limitations lately. What we think we are capable of and what our bodies actually are capable of are two very different things!

After a week in Germany, few weeks in Portugal – our amazing acroyoga festival and a day in London, I finally got back home and I have some time to share my experiences.

I went to Germany in the end of September to visit a friend, we ended up going for a 2-day hike in Austria which was much more than just a walk for me.

We started from Ranalt, which is around 1400meters above sea level, from where we had long and slow walk up to Nürnbergen Hütte (2297m) where we spent our night, the next day we started early, waking up at 6AM and starting our walk around 7.30 with special equipment for snow and ice. It was pretty heavy to get up there to 3418meters but it was worth every step and sweat drop!

My phisical conditions were okay, I train a loooot. Still, my body is not used with this kind of things as in Estonia our highest point is 318meters. The hardest for me was the altitude. I felt loads of changes in my body because of changes in the air pressure, the needs to eat and drink all the time and also adapting with just the walking part. Its like a meditation to go up there, mostly not talking, walking for hours – SO GREAT but also hard!

Going up there, breathing the freedom, stepping out of the comfort zone and doing something I thought my body is not able to, gives amazing energy overload. This feeling is something uncomparable!

I think it changes something inside us, it gives us something and teaches us too – why, otherwise, all the people go there..

 

Simplicity

“The difference between an ordinary life and an extraordinary life is only a matter of perspective. Pull the blinds. Look around you. It is a mad, mad world and you do not require ten digit bank accounts to immerse yourself in it. Travel down dusty roads without a destination in mind. Climb a mountain and scream out into the void. Kiss the hell out of a stranger. Skinny dip in a lake. Get lost and lose yourself (they are two separate things). Explore the wilderness (especially the one within). Think less of destiny and more of the moment right here. Because when you are old and ill with your loved ones around you, fame won’t matter, nor will the extent of your wealth. You are the sum of the stories you can tell.”
– Beau Taplin

Nudity

I have to share this photo because of my huge love towards nude photography. Many people around me get often asked if they are interested of being my nude models, most of them dont have nothing against it, but the issue comes when im asking their permission to share those photos.
I highly admire people who are okey of sharing their nude photos but I also understand that in our society people do not approve it. In general, being naked in front of others is a tabu for us, its something weird. We are taught since very young to cover and hide a lot of things – we hide our faces under loads of layers of make-up, we cover our bodies and marks and feelingas as well. For some reason we are ashamed of something natural and beautiful. But how can we be truly happy when we are not okey with who we are?

“True beauty is unaware
Vulnerability is a tremendous gift
Because there is no fear
The rose is not afraid
It is there
And because of that we admire it
The divine feminine is not about competiting with other women
Its about forming the sisterhood!”

There will be loads of amazing photography projects of mine in the future, if you are interested, let me know! ❤️
Thank you Tânia and Lidia for sharing this beautiful monent with me!!

Thank you, Universe, for the acrobats

So grateful for having the chance of binding two things what my soul loves the most – photography and acroyoga!


5 years ago I wouldnt have guessed I end up here – as looking myself, being a flexible yogy girl, travelling around the world, taking photos of wonderful athletes who I can call my family of the Universe!!!

Being a freelancer is not always easy but it sure gives me the full freedom to do whatever I want, where ever I feel!
So, thank you, Universe, for the acrobats! ❤️❤️

To know someone..

The most beautiful thing in life is to see someone growing next to you, growing up with you! Seeing them having the first relationship, finishing the university, having the first heartbreak or getting married, being pregnant, having a child ..

Time is something what teaches us a lot about people around. It teaches the little facts, which, in the end are the ones what actually matter. Did you know that your friend has super sensitive area on his body, which you, in now way!! can touch because otherwise he will laugh his eyes off.. or did you know that this little child of your friend doesnt actually go to school, he is learning everything by himself, or did you know that I find it extremely cute when somebody offers to finish my leftovers, which didnt fit into my stomack..

How can we actually say that we know somebody when we do not evem know with which hand they are writing, what colors are their eyes or what they think about God, Universe or UFO´s..?

Time is something what builds relationships, it´s what builds strong and long lasting relationships. It is an honour to be standing next to my friends and family and capture all the emotions and moments what we call life!

 

Acroyoga Montreal teacher training, Orvieto Italy
