Zohreh Sadeghi India and Beyond


Counting the days

I know I haven’t written for a while mainly because I’m basically doing the same things as I was since I arrived here. Plus I barely get any free time to relax, my days start at 6 AM and end by 9 PM. I’m still in Koh Samui enjoying my retreat, taking in the sun […]

Yoga and detox in Koh Samui

I have made my decision regarding studying in India for 2 more years and have already accepted the admission letter. I hope I made the right decision, I guess I wouldn’t really know until the program starts. I have a feeling this is exactly what I was meant to do all along but just got […]

Aum Pranava Ashram

After almost a week in Bangalore, I finally recovered from my awful Ashram experience. I knew I wanted to try another Ashram but I didn’t know if I was ready yet. I started researching all the Ashrams throughout India but mainly in the south since I was already in the south and a train to […]

A valuable lesson

I decided to spend the month of June in an Ashram studying Yoga Therapy. This Ashram that’s now turned into a university is apparently a well-known Yoga research center in India and hundreds of people attend their Yoga Instructor’s course every month. I had heard about this place from a friend of mine and after […]

The Nepal experience

Zahra and I met in Kathmandu on a beautiful and cool Tuesday afternoon in May. I arrived first and checked into the hotel and awaited her arrival. When I opened the door and saw her smiling face I jumped into her arms and hugged her as tight as I could and then showered her with […]

“Courage is the discovery that you may not win, and trying when you know you can lose.”

Courage doesn’t just mean attempting the most difficult challenge, going to war or attending a dangerous political protest, courage means standing strong in the most difficult situations, it means being patient and pushing through the hard times. If I know of anyone who has these qualities it’s my amazingly strong sisters Sahar and Sadaf Kiani. […]

Trip from hell

I apologize to all my faithful readers for my long absence. I’ve been busy traveling, packing, unpacking, and checking yet into another hotel and so on. My past month has been just that, and I tell you I’m sick and tired of airports, train stations, hotels, restaurants, and everything else that comes with traveling. I’d […]

Adios Kerala…

I packed my bags and left Kannur last week. I had accumulated so many books, clothes, oils, containers, etc in the past 3 months that my mom and I ended up checking in 2 overweight suitcases and taking 8 bags onto the plane without paying any extra fees. I don’t know how we did but […]

I love you Marta

It’s finally here, the week I’ve been dreading for as long as I can remember, my last week in Kannur, last week of my Ayurveda school here, and the last week I’ll spend every waking hour with my lovely Marta. I’ve been extremely emotional lately, Marta and I spend every moment together, hold hands, talk […]

Loving it…

I love my life here in Kannur. I’ve been here for two and half months now, and can’t get enough of India’s wonderfulness. I’m totally shocked at how well and how quickly I adjusted to my new environment and how easily I fell in love with Kerala, I can’t yet say I’m in love with […]
