It’s always challenging to find a yoga place that suits you! There are a lot of different factors that are important in finding a yoga-home. A place where you rol out your mat, enjoy a class no matter what style of yoga, and sip on a nice Yogi tea after or before the class with fellow yogis.

Our nomatyoga-opinion is that you can take your yoga practice everywhere. With or without a yoga mat. But every once in a while (or every day ;)) it’s nice to enjoy a class in a studio nearby. This is also what Marianne de Kuyper thought, founder of the Dutch website: Yoga in de Buurt. Translated as ‘Yoga in the Neighborhood’. Check it our here: www.yogaindebuurt.nl

We used our favorite park in Groningen as our yogamat. The beginnings of NoMatYoga had just been born and we were ready to post the next day, or so we thought.

Looking back I realize how little we knew about blogging and all there’s to it. Now, four months later; a move across the world and some teacher training behind us, we are finally there! Actually ready to start posting our learnings about yoga and all those other life happenings. Right?!

We were a bit uneasy that first time of shooting photos around town. Are we good enough? How do we look? Is everyone watching us? Of course we are! Right?! So many questions and such little answers. Well, we just did it! We told ourselves we were going to do this so well, there we go!
