Vegan Chocolate Chip Banana Bread in General, Recipes


Do you ever buy more produce than you can finish? This happens to me a few times a month; I end up with overripe avocados or brown bananas and while I nearly cry finding out my avocados won't be good for guac anymore, brown bananas actually make me happy! Why? Because overripe bananas equal VEGAN BANANA BREAD. Every time. Here is my favourite recipe! This loaf is perfectly dense, moist and delicious and its so easy to make. Oh, and the darker the bananas, the better! Since the bananas are already so sweet we'll only...

On Self Worth in General


"If you are willing to look at another person’s behavior toward you as a reflection of the state of their relationship with themselves rather than a statement about your value as a person, then you will, over a period of time cease to react at all." - Yogi Bhajan One of the most important realizations we can ever have in life is understanding our own self worth. If you constantly define your value as a person after what people tell you, you are destined to live a life of unhappiness.  Fact is, you cannot control...

Podcast: Fyllepodden in General


I had a great talk with Anitha Schulman and Sanna Lundell on their podcast Fyllepodden last week! We spoke about yoga, alcohol, how I dropped my destructive patterns when it came to drinking as a teenager and just how much wine is too much wine. It's in Swedish, so readers in Sweden - enjoy! x,        

DIY Sprouts! in General, Recipes


I love, love LOVE sprouts. They are super nutritious, delicious and a live food meaning they are bursting with active enzymes! And the best part is they are so easy to grow at home. You can sprout beans and legumes, grains, grass and microgreens. The time needed differs between what you are sprouting, so do some research before you get started! I have been sprouting alfalfa seeds all month long. This is what you will need: 2 tbsp of sprouting seeds (I used alfalfa but you can use mungbean, sunflower, broccoli seeds or whatever you...

Do more. in General, Love

This year has truly been all about taking chances. I've had this nagging feeling at the pit of my stomach for over a year now: I want to do more. I love teaching yoga and I love being a writer and I love sharing it all through social media... But I want to do more. I don't think I happened to come across this community by chance. Sharing these words there is a possibility that 1 675,755 people read it on Instagram, and another 216,141 on Facebook. My place in all of this is not random....

Yoga Across America in General


I'm so excited to finally be able to get this blog up! Earlier this year we embarked on The Happiness Tour, a combined book and yoga tour across the US for the release of Yoga Girl. I decided before we left to try to connect with as many yoga teachers as possible, book private classes in every city and explore what the local yoga community had to offer in each place. Since I was teaching such large classes we got great support from local teachers to help assist in every city! We ended up meeting...

oneOeight in General, Love


As a social media influencer I get to interact with thousands of people every single day. Throughout the past years I have shared my highs and my lows, the good and the bad, doing my best to inspire my close to 2 million followers across the world. Actually, I don’t like the term “followers”. I prefer to call it for what it actually is: a community. Through social media we are creating community on a global level, intertwining and connecting people from different backgrounds, with different life stories and different dreams. As a yoga teacher,...

So in love with the new sustainable gadgets I see all around! Going to the beach with a solar powered backpack feels like something from Back to the Future... But charging my phone using the sun while on the beach? Pretty epic.   From Birksun.

A Stray Dog and a Sacred Place in General, Love


The picture above is my house. This mess was one of the most valuable things to happen all year. Bringing Polly home was like bringing home a hurricane. A happy, tail-wagging, treat-eating, playful hurricane that had a huge appetite for walks - and furniture. Rescuing her and her puppies was one of @sgtpeppersfriends first missions as a team. One morning I saw water flooding out of the office - I open the door and there Polly is, super excited, soaking wet, smiling, with the shower turned on and the entire room in shreds. The room...
