Donโ€™t you think itโ€™s fascinating that everyoneโ€™s chair pose is so different? ๐Ÿค” Triangle pose, downward dogs and forward folds look pretty similar on everybody, but ukatasana has an โˆž of variations. .
Some people like their hands together ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป, some apart ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป, some people sit low and point forward ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿป, others sit higher and drive upwards ๐Ÿ”, some people look up ๐Ÿ™„ and others forwards ๐Ÿ‘€. I canโ€™t say I know which variation is right, as long as you feel your legs and you just want it to stop, youโ€™re probably doing it right. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Can you tell I donโ€™t like chair pose?
.
But hey โ€˜obstacles donโ€™t block the path, they make the pathโ€™. So get low ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿป and stop complaining ๐Ÿ˜ถ๐Ÿ™ƒ .

.
Iโ€™m taking another workshop at @yogaspaceleeds this weekend ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป Practicing in a room full of other students is a great reminder to stay true to yourself! ๐Ÿค— Being inspired by others and sharing knowledge is the whole point of life, but never at the expense of your own path - thereโ€™s only one life to live, and thatโ€™s your own ๐Ÿ˜ป

Now enough with all the spiritual mumbo jumbo, thereโ€™s a Thai restaurant waiting for me and my stomachโ€™s rumbling. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿœ๐Ÿฒ

I had a really eye-opening weekend back home for an #Ashtanga workshop. As expected, I satisfied my inner yoga-nerd by perfecting poses, aligning limbs and understanding the entry and exit to several asanas. But most importantly, it was an opportunity to remember why I practice. And in the midst of all the seriousness surrounding the 'journey to the self', just remember not to take yourself to seriously. Thereโ€™s really no point unless you want to develop premature frown lines. ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Iโ€™m proud to announce that this week has NOT been a super-uber-mega-crazy week. I caught a cold (unsurprisingly) after exhausting my energy, and as a result, my immune system! ๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿคง My cold is on its way, slowly but surely. .
A great #tip that isnโ€™t really a tip but is definitely underused is to actually REST when youโ€™re ill. And I donโ€™t mean cutting back on work/commitments/partying, I mean sitting in bed for a whole day ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป sounds dreamy, right?! Truth is - Iโ€™ve tried many remedies to get rid of a cold. Turmeric tea and herbs, vitamins, sprays and tablets of various types.. but what really accelerated recovery is to let your body rest. So if youโ€™re sick, donโ€™t beat yourself up for doing nothing - you probably need it! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿคง๐Ÿ’†๐Ÿผ

Itโ€™s the first day of my MSc eek! ๐Ÿ‘€ Iโ€™m nursing a cold after the craziest two weeks ever, and trying to rest before my first lecture at 2pm ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ”ฅ
.
I just had some overnight soaked oats with cinnamon, chia seeds, sunflower seeds and roasted buckwheat, cooked with @oatly milk + peanut butter ๐Ÿฅœ, with a cup of @pukkaherbs gold turmeric tea ๐Ÿต to make me feel a little better! ๐Ÿ˜™ Fingers crossed ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿปmy cold is gone by the weekend - Iโ€™m flying back home for a 3 day #Ashtanga workshop ๐Ÿค—

This red lentil soup has been a staple ever since I started getting acupuncture. Apparently, thereโ€™s a lot of โ€œColdโ€ in me. Iโ€™ve always assumed salad ๐Ÿฅ— to be a good option, but if youโ€™re always (and I mean ALWAYS) cold โ„๏ธ like me, try soup!
.
I had this red lentil soup almost every day during the summer (yes, Iโ€™m cold all year round ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ), and I have it at least twice a week. In fact, I have some with me right now! โ˜ƒ๏ธ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

My internshipโ€™s over, and I got this huge bouquet as a thank you gift! Itโ€™s proudly sitting on the kitchen counter, thanks @nimaconsultancy ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ’ž

What have I achieved this Monday? I cycled ๐Ÿšฒ to uni for a (really quite boring) maths ๐Ÿ“š review session, had lentil soup ๐Ÿœ and accidentally ordered a caffeinated cappuccino โ˜•๏ธ, held a stand for @doctorswithoutborders ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿผโ€โš•๏ธ at a college fair, cycled home, ate nuts ๐ŸŒฐ and I am now pondering the meaning of life. Or maybe just avoiding my yoga practice. Who knows. Happy Monday all! ๐Ÿ’œ

How pretty is this fig? Fruit is so fun to photograph, thereโ€™s so much detail and beauty in them! ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ”ฅ The shift in temperature has definitely made itself known in York, with its darker and cooler โ„๏ธ mornings. Iโ€™m not sure how long I can sustain my bike rides to and from work โ˜ ๏ธ๐Ÿšฒ.
.
Spring is often coined as the season of new beginnings but autumn has always been more impactful to me. Maybe itโ€™s the whole #backtoschool vibe! ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ‚ September has already brought a TON of change, from going back to university ๐ŸŽ“, finishing my internship at @nimaconsultancy ๐Ÿ’ป, finding a diet than FINALLY works for my gut ๐Ÿœ, and making a lot more fermented foods. ๐Ÿ‘€

This is fish pose. Iโ€™m not very keen on it. According to traditional text, itโ€™s the destroyer of all diseases. Happy Tuesday!

This salad was worth every single bite ๐Ÿ˜ฑ Iโ€™ve been trying to recreate it but without great success! @she_kultura are much better at plating up this โ€œMoon Cheese Saladโ€ ๐ŸŒ™. I wasnโ€™t quite sure why it was called Moon Cheese at first, but then realised the small holes look like the surface of the moon ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ Iโ€™m retarded like that. .
A fresh salad like this one is my idea of a perfect summertime lunch (and letโ€™s just pretend the summer is not ending. ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿผ). Green leaves dressed in olive oil and vinegar, quinoa, lots of cheese and some walnuts. Oh and that spelt bread though ๐Ÿ™€๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
.
In other news Iโ€™m going dairy-free WHICH IS DEVASTATING but also kind of exciting. I need some emotional support during this difficult time ๐Ÿ˜น๐Ÿ˜ญ. I love cheese ๐Ÿง€ but my gut doesnโ€™t, so itโ€™s off the menu for a few months! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

In light of my recent diet and lifestyle revelations, ย Iโ€™m doing another reset this year - on my own terms! Check the #linkinbio for the ground rules to my super chilled, intuitive reset this September! ๐Ÿ™ƒ

I had a bad case of the Mondays this morning but it seems to have passed. My energy levels are sky-high and only 2 hours away from finishing work already, so life is good ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘ฏ

Why are holidays over so fast? You get so used to your routine, waking up later ๐Ÿ˜ด and eating breakfast ๐Ÿณ overlooking the sea ๐ŸŒŠ , fanning your toes out on the sunbed until lunchtime, drinking iced coffee โ˜•๏ธ in between trips to the pool ๐ŸŠ and switching into another pair of flip flops to head out to dinner ๐Ÿด - and then it all comes to an end! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป
.
Regardless, this weekend was so welcome - I've been meaning to cook up some fun new recipes (HM sourdough, more soup and more grilled vegetables ๐Ÿฅ’). I'm off to tend to my sourdough starter now - see y'all later! ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’–
