Posing in California, Like The Stars Do

Posing in California, Like The Stars Do

Sometimes dreams come true, right?

This summer I had the pleasure of flying to Los Angeles for a photoshoot. As I have never been to the West Coast before, this was super exciting for me and I got to work with the amazing Asana Rebel team again.

One of the highlights was the live stream on Facebook, which showed me in action, teaching the local yogis! It was so much fun!

Teaching for the first time in LA, what a dream!

Some days we had to wake up really really early to catch the sunrise. But as you can see, it was  worth it.

Another morning shoot took place at Manhattan beach. It was so early, that the air was still cool and even the sand.

One day we walked along Abbot Kinney Boulevard and could not believe our eyes. This street is full of beautiful street art to enjoy.

I will upload more pictures from my amazing photoshoot in California on my Instagram and Facebook. Stay tuned to see more inspirational pictures.

Love,
Zeynep

Stretching At The Airport

This years stop at Frankfurt Airport was very very special to me. I must have landed and departed from here so many times. It has been the place where I have started and finished many exciting adventures around the world, while saying emotional hellos and goodbyes to the loved ones I grew up with only a few miles away.

I am honoured to have been the face to promote the beautiful new yoga rooms at the airport.
There is one in Terminal 1 (Area C NonSchengen Level 2) and Terminal 2 (Area D NonSchengen Level 3).

I learned so much about the airport at these shooting days and yes, it was a very cold and super windy experience!
As I travel most months between London and Frankfurt, it is very handy for me to stretch out before my flight from Terminal 2 and the new yoga rooms are the perfect place to go.

Come and check out these beautiful yoga rooms and don’t forget to take a picture once you’re there and post it on Instragram. 😉

Have a safe flight!

Love,
Zeynep

Zeynep’s Secrets – Energy Boosting Smoothie

Zeynep.YogaSo many of my students have asked me in the previous year “What do you eat?”, “What do you have for breakfast”, “How many days do you practice?” etc.

I decided 2016 is the year to give you a little bit more insight into my life and share my secrets with you, how I stay fit, young and still look like 18 even though I’m 31! Yes, for those who didn’t know my age they have probably fallen off the chair already. 😉

So stay tuned on my social media platforms and check out my short videos.
If you have any questions or ideas about what you would like to see in my videos, please get in touch.

This first video shows you how I make my very own energy booster smoothie for 2016! I absolutely love smoothies in the mornings as they give me all the energy I need for the whole day. And yes, I also love exotic fruits, I’ve probably tried all of them and can tell you how they taste like. 😉

All you need is the following (serving 2 people):

– Blender
– 1/4 of a pineapple
– An orange
– A lime
– 3 mini banana chiquitas
– 1/2 a mango
– 4 physalis
– Basil
– Parsley
– Cress if you have some (I used a beetroot cress from the garden)
– Organic milk (200ml)
– Moringa powder (2 table spoons)
– Chia seeds (3 table spoons)
– Passion fruit juice (50ml)

When you have chopped up everything, put it into the blender and give it a good mix. If you feel that the smoothie is too thick, you can always add a little bit more fruit juice in, depends on what you have at home. If you like it creamy, add some milk or cream.

When ready pour it into your glass, enjoy and feel that rising energy inside your body. Let 2016 be a healthy year full of energy!
