I’M LUNA and I absolutely love food and yoga. To be exact I love experimenting in the kitchen, making a mess and taking pictures in the end. My favourite and essential thing in the kitchen is (as you probably already guessed) cumin. It is amazing in every dish and I somehow find that whenever something is tasteless, a bit of cumin will do to spice it up. That is besides in smoothies and other sweet treats.

Yin yoga is a very meditative form of yoga, where you will be in each pose for a longer period of time, while focusing on your breath and using your breath as an anchor for thoughts that may wander. During this time gravity allows us deeper into each pose and this is why we are careful not to cross our edge when entering a pose.
The main physical part that we are working with in yin yoga, is the fascia, also known as our connective tissue. By staying in poses for a longer period of time, whilst being still, we are able to stress our connective tissue and allow it to expand and return to its original form. Because we want to avoid the tissue from going back into its contracted form, we move slowly between the postures. This will also allow ourselves to notice the sensations in the body, feeling the effects of the pose.

Shakti Yoga is a style of yoga, which nourishes women and all aspects of the female body – physically, mentally and spiritually. It is a yoga style, where slow and subtle movement sets the foundation for a sensory yoga style. It is rooted in the cyclical, allowing for both the yin and yang energy – and all in between – to be nourished. It’s a somatic focused style of yoga, where the deep cyclical power and wisdom is awakened. Read more about Shakti Yoga here.
