I first made these squares in fall, when it was rainy and gloomy outside. I enjoyed them right when they came out of the oven, but only later I realized they’re so good when they’re cold too. That’s why I’m sharing them today with you, so you can bring them on your next picnic!
One of the things on my manifestation list for this year, was practicing yoga with some of the best teachers around the world. I love going to classes and practicing on the floor of my apartment, but there’s something about diving a little deeper in a weekend-long workshop. That’s what I did last weekend, when Tara Judelle was in Oslo to teach her Embodied Flow workshop.
It seems the whole interwebs is talking about removing things from our lives in Spring: detoxing, cleaning and cleansing, diets and all sorts of other ways to make ourselves happy.

Today I’d like to share with you two of my favorite remedies from the traditional Indian health practice of Ayurveda: Turmeric and Ashwagandha. Turmeric is a beautiful root with amazing immune boosting properties and Ashwagandha is an adaptogen that helps us release stress and balance the hormones.

My students sit in front of me. Cross-legged, closed eyes, calm. The yoga room is quiet, and I hear the birds outside celebrating this beautiful spring day. I’ve guided the group through their 90 minute Hatha Yoga class, with meditation, pranayama and a series of asanas, and just finished my last sentences of the closing prayer. I’ve a big smile on my face and body is filled with excitement. When I ask my students to open their eyes, they start clapping and my teacher gives me a big, warm hug. I’ve passed my first exam of the Yoga Teacher Training!
It’s late in the evening when I arrive on the island of Tenerife. My Yoga Teacher Training starts later this week, but I decided to arrive a little earlier to have some time to explore the island. Tonight I stay in though, as I’m tired from the flight and the hectic days before my departure. I enjoy traveling by myself and I’d love to give you some tips to make your solo travels amazing.
