I love a little bit of chocolate just as much as every other yogi. However, I am trying to keep my refined sugar intake as low as I can. Also, I often find that the regular corner shop chocolate bar sends me on a rollercoaster of sugar highs and lows – not a pleasant ride. The beauty of these chocolate […]
I have searched and experimented for a long time to get to the perfect red lentil curry. And finally, the journey has come to an end, with this ever so slightly spicy, zingy yet creamy-smooth, gorgeously textured version of orange goodness in a bowl. I am a fan of spices – but I don’t like spicy food. […]
About a year ago, when I was waiting for the landlords’ decision about renting out the space that would become my yoga studio a couple of months later, I found myself googling “what’s it like to own a yoga studio?” There was little on the web about the matter back then. Now, nine months into […]
Someone asked me the other day how living in Sweden compared to living in London. Well, it doesn’t. Hence the title.

“Among the things made by man, nothing is prettier than an English cottage garden, and they often teach lessons that ‘great’ gardeners should learn.” William Robinson, “The English Flower Garden,” London 1883 It’s official. I am old. I’ve got a crush on Monty Don! In a desperate attempt to turn the mud pit in our backyard […]
