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 – Super Healthy Bulgur Salad

Today I want to share with you the recipe to a super healthy salad, known as Kisir.
Kisir is the Turkish name of the Bulgur salad and very popular in Turkey.
Bulgur is a form of wheat. It is low in calories and fat, rich in protein and fibre, rich in mineral magnesium and helps reduce weight.

This is what you need:

– 2 cups of Bulgur / wheat
– 4 cups of boiling water
– 1 cup of olive oil
– 1 table spoon of tomato and paprika paste
– 1 tea spoon of paprika powder
– 1 onion
– 2 tomatoes if you wish
– Parsley
– Spring onions
– Lettuce
– 2 lemons
– 1/2 cup of olive oil
– Spices & seasoning (salt, black pepper, paprika, cumin)
– Dill
– Mint

FirstBulgur Salad wash the Bulgur and add 1 cup of Bulgur into a bowl. Add 1 cup of boiling water to the bowl, close the lid and wait for 10 min.

Meanwhile start chopping the parsley, onion, spring onions, mint, and dill into little pieces.

After 10 min the Bulgur should have absorbed the water. Now you can start adding the tomato and paprika paste, lemon juice, olive oil, the spices and then all the greens which you chopped earlier.

Mix it all well with your fingers.

Now take one piece of lettuce and one table spoon of the salad, wrap it in the lettuce and enjoy!

I hope you liked my video. Please give me any feedback and let me know how you get on!

and calms the nervous system,
