Cauta si vei gasi

Ce faci atunci cand nu ai aer suficient fiindca esti racita bocna si toate caile-ti sunt infundate?
Mergi la padure si te bucuri de muuult aer, umbra, liniste – doar eu si Bombonica ne-am permis luxul de a ne plimba prin padure intr-o zi de marti, la praz:D

Noapte alba:-(

Este ora 3.30 noaptea spre dimineata si eu scriu pe tableta…
Ma doare tot pieptul si gatul, am o stare de rau generala si la fiecare tuse am senzatia ca iau foc.
De joi am simtiti ceva, dar nici prin gand nu mi-a trecut ca o sa fur mai mult decat muci si putina tuse de la Aaron.
In fine, am furat-o si acuma nu sunt bine:-(

Sorry oameni buni, dar din pacate pe mine nu o sa ma vedeti pana joi la yoga.
Nici eu nu pot sa ma chinui, nici voua nu vreau sa va dau porcaria asta – nu merita.

Aveti grija de voi,
Xo, S

Tache & Mitza

Update later: Tache pleaca maine la noua lui casuta:D
L-am adus in casa si ne iubim mult…o sa-mi lipseasca mocofanul.


Acuma vreo doua luni ne-am trezit la bloc cu doua matze super simpatice – Tache si Mitza. Tache este un motan foarte prietenos si super haios, iar Mitza este o pisicuta frumoasa cu o personalitate de printesa.
De cate ori iesim la plimbare cu Bombonica, amandoi, sau cel putin unul dintre ei, vin tiptil in urma noastra. 20-30 de minute se plimba prin cartier alaturi de noi, raspund cand ii chemi si se comporta de parca ar fi ai nostri de ani de zile.
Astea fiind spuse, ajung si la miezul problemei: nu va doriti o pisicuta? Amandoi merita sa aiba o casuta si siguranta zilei de maine, altfel risca sa fie otraviti de semenii nostri “iubitori”…
Mananca orice, sunt sociabili, tineri si frumosi – plini de calitati ce merita sa fie apreciate intr-o familie:D

Azi, la yoga

Azi, ne onoram si ne apreciem corpul – de prea multe ori suntem grabiti sau ne lasam sedusi de pretentiile absurde ale ego-ului si ne ignoram sau criticam corpul.
Nu este vorba sa fim delasatori si sa-l ingrasam absurd, sau sa-l lasam natural ca si in vremurile cand saream din creanga in creanga…pur si simplu, eu cred ca atunci cand colaboram cu el, ii acordam atentie si-l iubim, corpul ne raspunde cu stare de bine, cu un aspect placut, cu energie.

Ne vedem la ora 18.00!

Workshop – initiere in arta culinara japoneza

Ieri seara am participat la un workshop delicios si sanatos - initiere in arta culinara japoneza – organizat de restaurantul Nobori din Cluj.
A fost un eveniment foarte interesant si ne-am simtit super bine: am invatat cum sa preparam sushi, cum sa ne pregatim ingredientele, de unde sa le cumparam, cum sa mancam.
Dat fiind faptul ca sunt indragostita de bucataria japoneza mi-a prins foarte bine acest curs fiindca am de gand sa aplic ce am invatat si sa-mi etalez talentele culinare si acasa.

Multumesc echipei Nobori, de la mine aveti nota 10!

Buuun, astea fiind spuse, hai sa va reamintesc si ce ne-a propus Sensei Florin (un aikidoka si un bucatar fantastic) la finalul workshop-ului culinar:

*un workshop de initiere in Aikido si auto-aparare, urmat de o masa oferita de restaurantul Nobori (sushi + cheesecake)

Aikido inseamna textual „calea armonizarii energiei” fiind o arta martiala ce face parte din categoria „interna” a stilurilor de lupta.
Nu ai nevoie de forta sau alte calitati de super erou pentru ca sa poti sa practici, deci nu va ganditi nicio secunda la violenta, pumni, talente ascunse – in aikido te folosesti de forta si energia adversarului pentru ca sa te feresti/aperi, deci poate sa fie practicat de catre oricine.
Si, din pacate, stim cu totii ca in viata sunt sanse sa ne lovim si de oameni cu intentii mai putin pasnice, asa ca un astfel de curs (sau mai multe) chiar ne pot salva viata/mandria.

Inca nu am date concrete despre cand se va organiza acest workshop, dar am sa revin cu o invitatie clara – in orice caz, este vorba de o sambata dimineata: antrenament, relaxare, masa de pranz & la revedere.

Eu sunt prima pe lista si va recomand cu toata increderea sa va ganditi serios sa participati si voi:D

Nom, nom, nom

1 cana coacaze, 1 banana, 1 cupa pudra proteica, 1 sana mica, 1 pahar cu apa – delicios!

Sa fim intelesi, o astfel de bautura este o masa de sine statatoare, nu gustarica, nu in plus pe langa mancare – au iesit cam 3 pahare bogate de licoare si, ochiometric, pot sa spun ca un pahar are in jur de +300 calorii, deci nu faceti exces de zel:D

Yoga – Not as Old as You Think

revin la acest articol pe care l-am publicat si in luna mai fiindca azi am avut o discutie referitoare la “yoga este veche de mii de ani” – yoga este vie si in continua schimbare, ceea ce practicam noi si toata lumea moderna nu este vechi/antic/mistic! este bun, este placut, este interesant si sanatos, are influente din mai multe arte, imbina delicat prezentul si trecutul, dar nu este atata de vechi pe cat se vehiculeaza in anumite cercuri:D

de citit (deschide link-urile) -  articole interesante despre cateva mituri legate de yoga

New Light on Yoga

“But on another level it’s liberating to realize that yoga, like life itself, is infinitely creative, expressing itself in a multitude of forms, recreating itself to meet the needs of different times and cultures. It’s liberating to realize that the yoga poses are not fossils—they’re alive and bursting with possibility.”

How old is yoga?

“…In a rare interview, BKS Iyengar, the 90-year old ambassador of yoga to the West, told me that his yoga, as taught to him by his master, was a purely physical exercise and completely unrelated to ancient philosophy. He says he invented and refined much of it himself. It wasn’t until 1960, while on a visit to London, that English intellectuals introduced Iyengar to the ancient “yoga sutras”. Five years later, he combined the yoga poses and the Hindu teachings together in his book “Light on Yoga,” which then sold hundreds of thousands of copies in the United States. And voila — the modern yoga craze was born. But it was basically a new age invention, not an ancient practice…”

Where Yoga Poses Come From: Are We Making This Shit Up?

“Really, who ever thought that was a millennia old asana? Anyway, we’re all just making it up… hopefully with humbled intelligence and a deep understanding of the biology of the body and the philosophy of the practice in mind. Now, in order to make our beloved asana practices ready to sustain the test of time, we have to make it relevant by using these practices to create sustained freedom and joy… just as the history of yoga has intended. “

Not as Old as You Think

“contemporary yoga is a unique example of a truly global innovation, in which Eastern and Western practices merged to produce something that is valued and cherished around the world”

YogaDork Interviews Kate Churchill and Nick Rosen of Yogamentary Film ‘Enlighten Up!’

“The irony was that we went to India thinking wow this is really the source, but when we go there the yoga that seemed really significant had nothing to do with our yoga. So it’s just a matter of what you want to study. It doesn’t really matter, you could do it in Idaho if you found the right teacher who suited you and if you found the right source of material.

I think ultimately through making this film, to me, enlightenment translates into becoming aware. There’s so many different ways to do that and it’s up to you to sort out how you do that.”

“What do you say to those who argue their yoga is more “real” than others?

“It drives me nuts! When people try to say that their one yoga is more legitimate than another because it has so-called historical lineage or a better pedigree. That is BS. If you look at the history of yoga it is not about that. The ancient yoga is nothing like what we practice; postures were irrelevant. Postural yoga is a very modern phenomenon. The history’s like 100 years old.
Yoga’s anything you want it to be and that’s very freeing. The worst is people saying we’re destroying yoga in America because it’s not spiritual enough. Tell that to BKS Iyengar when he was 25 years old developing this on his own and wasn’t spiritual. I just think that’s sanctimonious hypocrisy and often is a marketing tool more than anything.”

“It’s just like life. Yoga can be a great vehicle for transformation for people and I met a lot of people through that whole process like who were addicted to drugs or really depressed and yoga created this really intense energetic regular thing to devote themselves to that brought them a lot of stability.”

Yoga este o metafora pentru viata. Este vie si in permanenta miscare/transformare. Ador yoga pentru relaxarea, forta, respiratia, energia si focusarea pe care mi-o ofera. Ador yoga fiindca m-a facut sa-mi pun o gramada de intrebari, sa imi depasesc limitele si sa-mi inghit ego-ul de multe ori.
Ador yoga fiindca mi se potriveste…
Dar, da, nu cred ca yoga este veche de mii de ani, cel putin nu in forma care se propavaduieste nicaieri in lume (nici macar in India) si sunt emise multe mituri – care mai de care mai interesante.
Cred ca pentru fiecare yoga este o altfel de calatorie si inclestarea in “real yoga”, “traditional yoga” este funny.

Astea fiind spuse, sa ne vedem cu bine pe saltele si sa ne descoperim/traim, cat de prezenti putem, fiecare drumul:D

Sanda, Hyogo

Sfanta Sanda nu este, festivaluri sau premii cu numele meu nu sunt, dar am gasit altceva – un orasel simpatic din Japonia imi poarta numele (sau invers):D
The name “Sanda” has a long history. Records found within the Buddhist statue “Mirokubutsuzazo” in the ancient Konshinji Temple reads: “These areas are decreed as Matsuyama’s land, which includes Onden, Hiden and Keiden, which are three rice fields, and is thus renamed Sanda.” (In Japanese, “San” means three and “ta” (here pronounced “da”) means rice field.) This indicates that the name Sanda has been in use for an estimated 1,300 years.”
