Some personal lines Angelica Nanda Schäfer
My first meeting with Yoga was in 1999. I joined a friend on a 3 hour session that contained a mix of philosophy, asanas and Yoga Nidra. I still remember the feeling afterwards, how I walked the streets of Stockholm and felt so enormously calm as if I had all the time in the world. Instead of hurrying to the train as usual I was slowly walking and I can still clearly remember how I really was present at the moment and saw all the colors, shapes and sensed the smells and recognized me as part of something much bigger, something divine.
A few years earlier, I had my spiritual awakening on a mountain peak in Iceland and what I felt after this first yoga session was exactly the same connection, the feeling that everything is one and that I’m a part of it, that I’m something much more than just my body and my thoughts; I had a clear meeting with my innermost self. And the “yoga effect” lasted for several days! I was in love! ♥
