Calm before the storm


I’m addicted. And no no, not to drugs or alcoholic beverage so don’t worry, but to: yoga! I get up each morning and do atleast a good 20 minutes of yoga and on Sunday a killer 60 minutes!
I don’t do yogaclasses (saving money) but I follow videos at Youtube (oh yeah, saving money). To mention a few: Tara Stiles and Ekhart Yoga. They are the best.

Mainly I want to increase flexibility, balance and to calm myself. I’ve been doing it for a good month now and I feel really good.
So if you have sore lower back, lack of energy or want to able to do splits, I can really recommend you to do yoga c:


Ik ben verslaafd. En nee, niet aan drugs of alcohol maar: yoga! Sinds ik een yogamatje bij de Action (€4!) heb gekocht, is er geen ochtend geweest zonder een goed 20 minuten yoga! En zondag zelfs 60 minuten. Oh yeah.

Ik volg geen yogaklassen (want geldbesparen) maar ik volg Youtube videotjes (want geldbesparen). Om een paar channels te benoemen: Tara Stiles en Ekhart Yoga en zij is trouwens Nederlands !

Hoofdzakelijk wil ik flexibeler worden, balans vinden en mezelf kalmeren. Ik doe het nu al een maand en mijn lichaam voelt goed! Dus, als je een zere rug heb, gebrek aan energie of je wilt de split doen, dan kan ik yoga zeer aanraden c:

Inspired by 'Salt & Sugar' to make healthy oatmeal pancakes with blueberries and maple syrup c: it was a delicious brunch!

I Feel: worried, 
Music: Capsule - Control - its a catchy song with lots of melody, beats and now and then a Japanese autotune voice. 
Food: a sugar coated biscuit
Drink: tea with honey

  3. I go to pilates classes, i want try yoga in home, because its expensive on classes ;)

  4. De kleuren van de truien zijn echt leuk!

  5. hey nice post mehn. I love your style of blogging here. The way you writes reminds me of an equally interesting post that I read some time ago on Daniel Uyi's blog: Things You Must Know When Starting Up Your New Business .
    keep up the good work.


  6. Wat cool dat je aan yoga doet,
    Ik wil het ook graag doen elke ochtend (of opseminst een beetje stretchen en oefeningen),
    maar ik hou het nooit vol..

    Toch denk ik dat ik binnenkort ook maar zo een matje ga halen haha :)

    xo' M

  7. Oh wat klinkt dat zen! Ik zou willen dat ik ook wat meer controle over mijn leven had haha. Ik ben de laatste tijd bijna niet meer met sporten/gezond eten bezig, moet mezelf echt weer even een schop onder de kont geven. Yoga lijkt me trouwens echt leuk! Liefs, Rowan

  8. Yoga! Ik ben geen flexibel type dus ik houd het bij blogilates haha.
    En die pannekoeken zien er zo lekker uit *.*

  9. Ik heb thuis ook nog een yogamat liggen ... snel maar eens iets mee doen. Die pancakes zien er verrukkelijk uit!

  10. Interesting how you chose to learn Yoga online instead of following classes. ^^ I was debating whether I should start following Yoga again in Amsterdam, but the fees are quite expensive to me and I need to save up my money. :( So this post have helped me a lot with my dilemma. Thank you so much for it. <3 And the pancakes you made look delicious. *___*

  11. I've tried yoga in the past, but I kind of want to start it up again! Thank you for the youtube recommendations! :)

  12. Yoga? Heb het nog nooit geprobeerd, but ik heb wel zo'n matje! Dus morgen ochtend moet ik m'n borst maar nat maken.... en yoga gaan doen haha

  13. Ohh die oatmeal pancakes zien er heerlijk uit! Ik wist trouwens niet dat action yogamatjes verkocht, een keertje eens gaan kijken :)

  14. i used to do yoga! but i couldn't keep it up. i think maybe i was doing it wrong because my joints hurt a lot. whomp whomp. those oatmeal pancakes look amazing! drooling here!

  15. I love your sweaters! And those pancakes looks seriously delicious!

  16. Ooh I love yoga as well - maybe I should start getting up 20 minutes earlier so I would actually have time to do it more often.
    And wow, those pancakes look delicious = oatmeal pancakes are the best!

  17. your photo editing is so kawaii :c lovely pancakes btw! I can barely get a circle shape OTL

  18. Yoga is one of my addictions, too! Been at it for a few years now, but not as flexible as I think I should be at this point :(

    You have the best reasons to be doing it, it really helps the body and calm the mind :)

  19. I agree -- I love how yoga is such a relaxing exercise that calms the mind & body. :3

  20. Wat super leuk dat je yoga doet!
    ik volg je nu op bloglovin, fijne week :)

    Love Bodil,

  21. those pancakes look amazing, makes me wanna eat some right now :( I'm soo jealous!


  22. My anatomy/physiology teacher had us do yoga in class the other day! It was surprisingly difficult to stay balanced, but I really enjoyed it. ^^

  23. aaaaa!! pancakes!! i've always wanted to make one at homeee :( but i'm no kitchen personnn psshh and well, the people in my house are always thinking of how much of a hassle it is etc etc and that it will create a mess in the kitchen whatsoever -___-;; sigh. and then in the end, i'll get complained like, "why do you have to act like a western kid, with all those complex lunches etc" -____-;; they think me eating salad is me eating "complex luxurious lunch" wtf haha

    i didn't know muesli and oatmeal can be part of a pancake!! i love them both ;w; i'm addicted to grains,i think.. haha

    P.S: capsule's songs are catchy. not sure if you know PERFUME but if you like capsule, maybe you'll like PERFUME
