About “me”:   

Writing this page I found myself in a funny position at first due to meditation on no-self, but I recognized indeed the importance of showing who is behind a blog, so here it goes.

My name is Sara, but friends call me Ginger.

My native tongue is italian, but I preferably express myself in English even if it is not perfect.

I’m an idealist. I should say that sometimes I’m guided by principles, especially when abuse is involved.

I’m an optimist. I believe in people, not in all their actions.

I am resilient. I do not let harsh time defines me.

I don’t believe in labels, that’s also why it was funny this “self-labelling-me” to present myself! I try not to label anyone.

I don’t like to be forced into something I don’t feel like.

I’m not a particular fan of “rules” regardless, but I believe it would be wonderful just to live with in something more naturally ethic, like “universal human principles”. But still I try to keep my attitude to “live and let live, power to free will“!

When it comes to accomplishing something I believe in, I develop a sense of dedication, which sometimes could be even courage or “foolish“.

People may tend to describe me as calm, reserved, which I definitely am, but when something captures my attention I became really passionate about: dedicating time, energy, thoughts, passion and emotions.

I try to live a healthy life: mind, body, soul, relationship and my impact on environment.

I admire, but I honestly have to say I’m not, an analytical person. But sometimes I would love to be one.

My passions are (casual order): yoga (all of it!), philosophy, anatomy, nature, diving, freediving, art, music, writing, literature, sometimes cooking and diy and in general everything that inspires compassion, kindness and beauty.

Oh and I’m in love. With sea.

I try to live by my passions, here is my web site.

One of my favourite quote:

“You will end up finding the way if first you have the courage to lose yourself” from Another round of carousel by Tiziano Terzani

I am a yoga practitioner. I have been practicing for more than ten years and continue to study classical Indian philosophy, meditation, prāṇāyāma. I try to observe also different approaches, in order to have a broader look also on the practice of āsanas (haṭha and aṣṭāṅga). I am a haṭha and aṣṭāṅga yoga teacher, graduated from Master Vijay Amar Sen’s Universal Yoga Center school in Dharamsala, located in the federated state of Himachal Pradesh, India. I am certified Yoga Alliance E-RYT® 200, RYT® 500, YACEP®, my Yoga Alliance ID is 237963. I have been sharing yoga, prāṇāyāma and meditation sessions since the beginning of 2014. I constantly update my studies to stay in touch with arguments from different points of view, as thoroughly as possible is part of my sādhanā.

Here is my “yoga teacher” curriculum vitae:

About this blog:

it is something I had in mind since quite a while… I won’t qualify myself as an expert in this or that, I’m just curious about many different topics and I tend to reflect on what I experience or find. I felt the need to give an organised form and not to lose the trail of all the sparks, reflections and thoughts. A blog suits this purpose: a place where I can lay all that I encounter on my footsteps, like a sort of more organized “notes repository“!

Even more, is a great excuse to incentive myself to dig deeper on every topic and which I hope to share and maybe create something collaborative. Who knows, maybe one day I even can figure out if there was a path hidden between all these topics!

For someone it could be useful or interesting, for someone else it could be pointless or not interesting either way, I want to thank you for stopping by and taking time to read these lines.

Ginger 😉
