A Summer without Gazpacho ain't no Summer to Me :)

After 8 days on the Solstice Diet (except for the lunch, that consisted of 2 slices of watermelon) at the yoga festival, I am back home in a hot and humid Barcelona, which makes me have very little appetite. My favourite food on a day like this is Gazpacho. Here is a yummy version with watermelon - my other "cannot live without" summer food..( I know, it is not food..it's a fruit :))

Basil Watermelon Gazpacho

  • 6 cups cubed fresh watermelon
  • 1 cucumber, peeled and chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped basil
  • 1/4 teaspon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
Chill watermelon and cucumber in refrigerator ahead of time. Combine all ingredients in blender or food processor until roughly smooth (a few chunks are good!). Enjoy right away!

I found the recipe here

I am back in Barcelona after an amazing Yoga Festival in beautiful France - and I'm feeling fabulous and keen on sharing it with you :)

Because of the heat I was thinking to start giving a class Thursday night in park Ciutadella at 7.30 pm when it begins cooling down - anyone interested?
If not, the Saturday morning yoga class on the beach will start at 8.30 & for the special Monday morning yoga class in Park Guinardó we will meet up at 8 o' clock outside my house.
Please send me an e-mail for more info.

Don't live at each other - Live FOR each other ♥♥

"Our ego likes to judge and be right and in so doing separates itself. Even if we have the same weaknesses or strengths as others, we don’t see them as our reflection. However if you practice yoga then consciousness conquers the ego. It flows through everything and everybody and is connected to all - we call it Ek Ong Kar, the one creative power.  Now you start relating to the soul of the other person, not to the ego.  Then, the other person is you -  her soul is your soul – the one in all."
- Yogi Bhajan

The theme of this years Yoga Festival in France is: "Live for Each Other"
- and that is where I am heading next :)
So see you all on my return on the 29th of July, & until then; don't hurry, don't worry, & remember to smell the flowers along the way ♥♥

Don't take it Personally

Don't take anything Personally; Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.

Special Morning Yoga Class in Park Guinardó Tomorrow!

Tomorrow it is Monday - and that means Yoga in the park!
Since it is VERY hot in Barcelona at the moment, I say we meet up at 8 o'clock outside my house instead of 8.30 - otherwise we will be doing Bikram Yoga instead of Kundalini :)

Happy girls are the prettiest

I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.
- Audrey Hepburn

I may have posted this quote before, because it is definitely one of my favorites..probably because it describes me so well :)

Because My Heart is in July

shifting away from June's bud to leave dandelions scattered in the yard
this dawn of July marks the end of a lie
a lie from past season for a strong reason

in July robin will make herself shy 

and cover her reddish breast with her celestial hued crest
then flap her wings to fly close against the sky

I want to kiss July and make July lasting forever
in beauty but not ephemeral
I will preserve July on my canvas and with magic brush
so that she will be enthralled and blush
I will paint July with charming colour
so that she will be captured in delight
and her soul enraptured

because my heart is in July
