MY YOGA JOURNEY and MY TEACHER TRAINING AT SAMPOORNA

MY YOGA JOURNEY and MY TEACHER TRAINING AT SAMPOORNA

Where to start?

So many thoughts, memories and feeling when I think about Sampoorna, it actually took me 30 minutes of staring at the blank page on the screen before I started writing. 

I received a lot of messages on Instagram asking how I found this school and why I choose this one compared to others. So I will start from this, from the very beginning of it all.

I'M BACK!

I'M BACK!

I think I started this post a million times, every time in a different way. I wanted to talk about why I stopped posting and what happened in these months, but I can’t find the right words.

Without going to deep I spent a few months this past winter in a circle of negative thoughts and I felt unable to come out of it. I suffered of social anxiety and I felt scared of basically everything, from going out to try new things. It has been quite a hard time for me.

BE KIND

This happiness.

This love.

This beauty all around me.

I'm lucky, but I chose this. I attracted this luck my way. Everyone is in power of their own life. We decide our own path. I'm grateful for every moment of my life because every moment taught me something that has brought where I am now.

KIND OF A SPRING BREAK

KIND OF A SPRING BREAK

Hello guys!!!

As you might have noticed I'm not writing any recipes lately and that's because I'm super duper busy in this moment. I travelled to South Africa for a long weekend, which sound crazy I know, but I couldn't take more time off and I really wanted to be present at Simon's sister wedding.

COFFEE AND COCONUT SCRUB

COFFEE AND COCONUT SCRUB

HAPPY APRIL everyone!

Today, as promised, I’m gonna give you some tips of how to make a wonderful homemade scrub.

Coffee scrub is perfect to exfoliate the skin, improving the texture and it leaves it smooth and soft. It can also improve circulation and therefore it helps getting rid of cellulite.  Caffeine can reduce blood vessels and while drinking it it will help you feel awake and energised, gently scrubbing some coffee grounds around the eyes will also give you the look of it.

GET YOUR SKIN READY FOR SUMMER TIME BABY!

 GET YOUR SKIN READY FOR SUMMER TIME BABY!

Hey you beautiful!!

Today is a sunny day, the temperature is rising and the most brave (or silly) *waiving hands, over here!* are starting to show some skin here and there. I’m an animal of the sun what can I say, as soon as spring starts to show I put away all the coats and tights and I refuse to wear them anymore. The only problem is that when I lived in Italy, my skin used to be olivish even during winter while now it’s just pale, like I’m muting into a ghost pale. As I’m waiting to be on holiday, laying under the sun all day long and take on that golden-browny color, I try to take care as much as possible to my skin and prepare it for that time.

Here we go with few things that can help in the glow:...

YOUR BODY THANKS YOU!

YOUR BODY THANKS YOU!

The other day I was talking of how healthier changes naturally come into your life when you start to love yourself as you are. Starting from simple changes like the desire of cooking your own meal instead of a take away or changing a normal pack of salty crisp with hummus ones (they’re actually yummy!).

HAPPINESS IS A LONG, WARM BATH

HAPPINESS IS A LONG, WARM BATH

If there is something I love to do after a long day at work is taking a hot tub. its impossible to think of any trouble that can’t be washed away with a long, warm, bubbly bath. There’s nothing more relaxing and soothing than soak in hot water enriched with some salts and oils.

What I like to do is customize my bath salts, combining them with different oils for different needs. At the top of the bath I keep a jar with my favorite salt of the moment: lavender and magnesium. It’s the perfect combination for a relaxing, calming bath before to go to sleep.

IF NOT NOW, WHEN?

IF NOT NOW, WHEN?

A blank page in front of me, a new project and a smile. Like always. This is exactly what I want this blog to be about: smiles. And my journey to happiness and love, where I’m exploring new ways to really find what feels good for me.

Love yourself first then the changes will come. It came as an enlightenment. So simple, so natural yet we easy forget about it. And I promise you that’s exactly how it works!
