I know many people make resolutions for the new year, personally I like to reflect on my favorite people and moments of the year before. I promised myself to take good care of my loved ones and myself, in which ever form that may be.

Yoga can definitely be part of taking good care of oneself. So if you want to simply try a class, renew your practice or continue your ongoing practice, feel free to join one of my classes in this first cold month of the year.

My favorite recipe of 2016: warming lentil-coconut soup Ⓥ

spicy-lentil-soupCooking, no actually eating is my passion 🙂 Vegan food obviously. I love to discover new recipes, restaurants, chefs, cook books, … Last year I’ve posted quite a few of my own recipes on this blog, however I forgot to mention one of my favorite recipes of 2016: it’s a delicious, warming, spicy soup by the talented chef Angela from Oh She Glows. It’s remarkably easy to make and requires very few ingredients. Basically it’s my go to recipe when I don’t have time to do grocery shopping or cooking, but want to fill my tummy with some healthy and happy food. I guess I make it once a month. All the guests I’ve served the soup to were really enthusiastic as well.

Discover the recipe & mouth watering pictures on Angela’s blog. Bon appétit !

31 December: Swami Vishnudevananda’s birthday

swami-vishnu2Today would have marked the 89th birthday of Swami Vishnudevananda, the great yogi from the East who conquered the West through yoga back in the 50s and 60s. Personally I’m immensely grateful for his teachings as they’ve helped me so much in my spiritual development and yoga practice, and still are !

“Swamiji is the founder of the International Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centres and was a world authority on Hatha and Raja Yoga. Swamiji was also known as the “Flying Swami” for the different peace missions he accomplished around the world.” – taken from the Sivananda website.

TIP: read this wonderful book as your spiritual holiday lecture : The Yogi, about the life of this inspiring master.
