My views on Yoga, Christian Yoga, Pilates and Stretching


Long time coming to this blog post, I know. It will be lengthy, but bear with me. Grab a cup of tea and a biscuit and read through it. Or feel free to read it gradually. This is an important matter and first and foremost, I want to reassure you that I have written this after much research and prayer, which is why it has taken me so long to finish it. Ok, let’s start! So, what exactly is...

Breaking Free from the Chains of Self-Rejection


2 Corinthians 12:9-10 – But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. (…) For when I am weak, then I am strong.    I felt deep down that it was time to start writing again. I’ve been so caught up in other things that I kept...

To lose someone you’ve never met


Romans 8:28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. How can I start? It is undoubtedly tough. But deep in my heart, I want to try to express my still-healing emotions and hopefully be able to help someone who is going or has gone through similar pain.  I believe we should be more open about our...

The freedom in letting Go!


Isaiah 41:13 For I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you. Lately, somehow I have not been inspired to write. Not because there’s nothing happening in our lives, but because there’s actually a lot going on. We have been on a journey of travelling, serving and learning. At the moment there are just too many possibilities...

How I said “Yes” to the dress?


Saying Yes to the dress… a big deal, right? Some of us grow up dreaming about our wedding dress, imagining that ‘fairy-tale wedding’ and fantasising about what it will be like. To this day brides will spend a lot of time and money on it. Finding the perfect wedding dress for the perfect wedding is an event on its own – there is even a TV show about it. When I was a little girl, I...

Our First Night As a Married Couple

Ana & Steve | 7 April 2022

As many of you know, Steve and I decided to save our first kiss and obviously sexual intercourse until we were married. Some of you thought it is “insane”! In fact, even I, when I heard about leaving the first kiss for marriage thought it was “a little too much”. The Bible does not give you specific indications of what you can or cannot do, as long as you do not practice sexual immorality...



Isaiah 55:8-9 For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, declares the Lord. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts. Laos was the last stop of our “extended honeymoon”. We already knew and felt in our hearts that this adventure period was over and God was calling us into...



1 Timothy 2:1 First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all men Vietnam, Vietnam, Vietnam you were great! From AMAZING coffee to dramatic landscapes and epic food, Vietnam provided us with unique experiences and adventures we will take into our hearts. It was a time of exploring and also coming before God to pray for our next steps and...

Our stop in Thailand


Romans 12:10 Be devoted to one another in love. Honour one another above yourselves. From relaxing on tranquil beaches, magnificent scenery, and colourful sites to putting on weight with the exotic Thai cuisine – we are happy the Lord led us to Thailand where we continued to cultivate our marriage and learn each other more and more. Where did we go? We flew from Sri Lanka to Phuket...

What’s Going on in the Slums in Sri Lanka Now?


You have probably heard on the news about the crisis that is going on in Sri Lanka. The country now struggles with its worst financial crisis in more than 70 years. Although in previous years the economy was growing, currently it sustains a high debt and inflation level, suspending its foreign debt repayments since April 2022. The island nation has been unable to pay for fuel shipments because of...
