What brought me to this current place in life. A total surrender experience where I went with the flow, followed my heart. I had to lose myself before I could find my true self again through methods that I now share in my classes. I know how it feels to feel lost, dependent, stressed and I know it doesn’t have to feel that way.

How do you manage work-life and professional life? Any tips you want to share with our readers.

The best way to keep a balance is to make wellness your ritual, by starting your day with it, when the kids are still asleep. This is a good way to keep your balance because you start the days with a physical activity that brings a sense of personal accomplishment.

Committing to the morning practice brings you back to you, puts things into perspective, creates clarity and builds self-esteem as well as nurturing your body. It boosts my energy.

This is why I set up weekday morning classes, I call PJ Yoga, where you can just roll out of bed in PJs with a bedhead onto the mat. It is true that it feels good to show up as you are, without judgment, just you as you are. Sometimes it’s the hardest part for people to get up earlier or for women, to put themselves first, but once we realise the benefits of self-caring, everyone sticks to the new wellness rituals. I can see how my clients prosper just like I did.

How did you manage the pandemic period?

We are in the second confinement period in Paris and this feels a bit different. The first round was hard for my kids. My kids are 18 and 16. But we got to spend more time together than in a long time. Mum usually comes last on their social list ; )

We got into a routine, they learnt different skills, I took my time to study more on holistic coaching and spent time planting seeds on our balcony. Just like Audrey Hepburn said “to plant seeds is to believe in tomorrow”. Cultivating a positive mindset is everything. Doing it with my kids is a gift.

How Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra, breathwork & meditation change our life?

Abigail Mary Taugwalder

I am glad you ask this. I must say I never thought I’d get this passionate about Yin Yoga before I joined the teacher training. A bit like going on a trip and getting stuck in a place you fall in love with and changing your plans.

As Yin Yoga is built on re-boosting our Chi, our energy, based on the beliefs of Traditional Chinese Medicine, breathwork is a tool on its own that empowers the experience. Like both these practices Yoga Nidra can stand alone and leads us to incredible depths in our soul.

What all of them have in common is that they nurture grounding. In stability we grow. This is what they brought into my life. Connection to self, the earth, others with clear boundaries.
