yogaquotes

Ben je opzoek naar mooie en inspirerende yogaquotes? Ik heb 35 quotes verzameld en gebundeld die ik deel in deze post.  

Ik ben gek op positieve quotes om me te laten inspireren of juist te motiveren. Het zijn meestal compacte berichten, met een treffende boodschap. Heel fijn om in een mooi lijstje op te hangen bijvoorbeeld. Dit zijn mijn favoriete yogaquotes. Van Buddha, tot Einstein en Shakespear.

Is het bij mij thuis altijd ZEN? Nee, dat is (gelukkig) niet het geval. En juist daarom onderzoek ik 1000 en 1 verschillende manieren om te ontspannen. Ik blog over de trends op yoga en voedingsgebied, over een hippe of juist traditionele meditatie techniek, over geluksmomentjes, en een beetje magie. Want zeg zelf: “Sometimes we need a little magic”. ;-)
