Green Power – Cashew, Basil & Avocado Pesto Pasta

Hello Autumn! I have enjoyed this summer’s warmth, sunlight and flowers but now gladly welcome chilly air, foggy mornings and dead leaves. Thinking about it, it’s weird to notice that we are actually struck in some kind of eternal season circle, each of them succeeding one another; we are living our days, weeks and years at the exact same rhythm, in the exact same order. There is so much fixity in the world in the end, that I believe it is essential for human being to cultivate a spark of uniqueness and quirkiness, something that makes the difference, that break the pattern, that makes you happy and brings a little glow on others people face. Now that we’ve just entered a new month, the time has come to make this one even more beautiful than the previous one. I intend to enjoy myself and follow my heart a little more, not to think about what others are doing and to focus on the present moment, not making assumptions, doing my best and glowing a little …

Monday Motivation – 19th of September

« Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud. » – Maya Angelou  I’ve been trying to read a little more for a couple of days. Creating recipes, writing articles, studying, practicing yoga and socializing do not leave that much space for another creative activity like reading. However, I know that I need that “literary brain food”, that sparkle of inspiration, these meaningful lines that usually make me fly away. Not only does it inspire me to bring a few changes now and then in my routine, but it really opens my mind and spirit to new ideas, discoveries and thoughts. Anyway, in one of my desperate attempts to take time and read a few lines, I came across Maya Angelou’s work and a few of her famous lines. Two of them really struck me; and this is one of them…

#GGTips – 10 Qualities of Successfully Happy People (+ Tips to develop them)

There are so many different definitions of success, at least as many humans there are on this planet. However, the one that is well-spread the most certainly involves earning money in order to survive. Surviving…such a powerful and yet horrible world. What is the point of living a life you have to survive in? It is quite normal for a person to be unhappy, stressed, anxious & even a little depressed when having to survive! I know that this aching definition and fixity actually come from our society’s evolution and is now embedded into what seems to be a very tricky web. Let’s start off all together, by picturing life as a vehicle for blooming and thriving, and with “success” being synonymous of joy, abundance and happiness…

Monday Motivation – 15th of August

“Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough”. – Oprah Winfrey In the last “Monday Motivation” article, I shared my take on Oprah Winfrey’s beautifully written book What I know for sure. Going through it again this week, one specific phrase really amazed me and seemed to be echoing just perfectly with what I was living at the moment. If you’re not a yoga practitioner, you might not know that after a class, for the final five minutes, we’re lying on our mats, in Savasana (aka. The Body Pose), eyes closed, feeling all the emotions and sensations that are going through our bodies. This is the perfect time for the teacher to share something personal but yet universally recognised, some philosophical thoughts or even an emotional and heartfelt story. What our teacher told us a few days ago is so true and yet so hard to apply on a day-to-day basis: “Focus on what you’re doing well, on what …

#GGTips – 8 Reasons Everyone Should Start Yoga

It’s been two years and a half since I’ve stepped into the yoga world, blooming from my mat and shading light on my life and that way I am trying to create for myself. Now that I am halfway through one of the best experience of my life so far, a Hot Yoga Teacher Training, I wanted to share with you all the knowledge I’ve gathered throughout my practice. Without further ado, here are the eight reasons I am in love with yoga…and for you to step on the mat!
