When we travel the Vata dosha, or the wind element and subtle energies in us are affected. The qualities of Vata are then increased in us, and so our bodies become frail, dry, light and sometimes our mind get disoriented and distracted.Read More
Who says pancakes have to be sweet? I made these savory beet pancakes for the Yoga teacher training here a few weeks ago and they turned out great! They’re light, and both sweet from the cardamom and fantastic beets we’ve been getting this winter, and savory with a note of salt, coriander and cumin.Read More
When I vacation or retreat, I want to learn, grow and be challenged. I want to feel all the feels and cry with both joy and sadness as I make space to let go of the past. I want to go deep, unveil and have bottomless real conversations with like minded brothers and sisters. I want to progress in my asana practice and continue on the path to my full expression. I feel ready to tackle the biggest questions there is and nothing can stop me.
But sometimes, I want none of that.
I realized I haven’t shared my wintery version of these that I created last year for christmas. By using different spices, herbs, nuts and a variation of flower, you can make them taste different every time.

Do your best to not recreate, but to create something new in the moment.

I often get the question if Ayurvedic food is vegan. I understand the concern, and it's great that so many people are becoming more conscious about where and how we source our food.
The only animal product that I have regularly in my diet is ghee. It's also called clarified butter, and it just that, butter that has been cooked and purified to reduce the clogging effect it has on our bodies.
Are you feeling sluggish and low in energy?
A kitchadi cleanse is an excellent way to clear out ama (toxins) from your system and strengthen your Agni (digestive fire). When or digestion is strong and functioning well, we can digest what we consume, both food, emotions, impressions and general stressors in life.
This is one of my favorite Ayurvedic practices. It brings a calm to the entire home when the delicious smell of ghee fills my house. I usually keep silence, play a mantra or say one quietly to myself when I make it.Read More
In the Swedish language, we have a great word for being in the role of a victim, offerkofta. It basically means the victim sweater and unfortunately, I put it on quite frequently. I forget how fortunate I am and get caught up in what I consider to be wrong or not good enough.Read More
It hasn't been a simple or straightforward journey this no-sugar-experiment.
After making a few exceptions, I realized quickly that I would like to go back to only having natural sugars found in fruits, honey, jaggery and maple syrup. I feel great, my skin is clear and I rarely crave sugar anymore.

Ayurveda recommend to have fruits on their own away from other foods. Therefore it's best to bake fruit cakes with ghee as the only animalistic ingedient, or keep them vegan. Have the cake when your digestion feels strong, ideally in the mid afternoon or morning as a snack.Read More
