Suzanne’s Nourishing Chai

chaiHello, yoga friends.

Instead of looking for a sugar fix, I drink this chai in the evenings as a indulgent drink. I just love it. My version is less heating than a lot of chai recipes. This has no caffeine or tea. And you’ll notice that it’s missing the typical cinnamon. I’m allergic to cinnamon. But if you like cinnamon, then add some – but not before bed. Cinnamon is too invigorating.

Suzanne’s Nourishing Chai

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of water
  • 2 tsp fennel powder
  • 2 tsp coriander powder
  • 3 tsp cardamom powder
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 star anise
  • 4 slices of fresh ginger
  • 4 cups of cashew milk (almond milk or whole milk would be good too!)
  • maple syrup to taste

Bring water and spices to soft boil, then simmer for 5 minutes. Add cashew milk or your choice of milk, simmer for 10 minutes. Add maple syrup upon serving.

Makes 4 servings.

(Gratitude for Sweet Asrael who gave me a chai recipe that I made my own. I’m not aware of the original source)

New Recipe! Spicy Sweet Potato and Corn Chowder

Sweet Potato and Corn Chowder2

Hungry, Yoga Friends?

I just made up this recipe last night and let me tell you, this is one for the cookbook! This is a very special, but easy to make soup. It’s spicy and a touch sweet. It’s velvety but the corn adds crunch. Here’s my recipe:

Suzanne’s Spicy Sweet Potato and Corn Chowder Soup

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 a sweet onion, such as Vidalia
  • 2 Tbsp of good quality olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp good quality butter
  • Salt to taste – I probably added 1 tsp.
  • 1/2 of a fresh jalapeno pepper, finely chopped
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne
  • 1 tsp Old Bay
  • 5 cups of sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 4 cups of vegetable broth (good quality, you guessed it)
  • 3 cups of sweet corn kernels
  • 1/2 cup of coconut milk
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 Tbsp of maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup of chopped cilantro

Cook the onions slowly in the butter and olive oil with the salt to carmelize, about 10-15 minutes. Bloom the spices and then add the jalapeno. Cook for a few more minutes.

Turn up heat, add sweet potatoes and then broth. Cook for about 30 to 45 minutes, allowing the potatoes to fully cook. Turn off heat and blend soup with a hand immersion blender.

Turn heat back on. Add corn. Cook for about 5 minutes. Add coconut milk, lemon juice, syrup and cilantro. Cook for 3 minutes. Then you are done. Ready to serve.

Enjoy!

Namaste,

Suzanne

Learning How to Identify Imbalances Early to Manage Emotion and Resist Disease – Workshop on Tuesday!

hydrangeasJoin me Tuesday evening July 28 from 6 to 9 pm for a special workshop at my home yoga studio in North Arlington, Virginia. The topic of the workshop is Learning How to Identify Imbalances Early to Manage Emotion and Resist Disease. We’ll have fun with hands-on demonstrations, specific life-style and food recommendations and learning how to bring balance into the body, mind and spirit naturally.

Come to this workshop and you’ll learn:

  • how imbalances in the body and mind shape our emotions, then over time shape our beliefs, then change who we are
  • how imbalances (even subtle – or seemingly insignificant from a Western medicine point of view) are really cries for awareness. The body always seeks balance and provides these skillful signs to ask us to pay attention.
  • how the skills of Ayurveda can help you identify physical, emotional and mental imbalances early
  • you’ll start to learn how to detect imbalances so that you can predict and prevent disease
  • how to create a wonderful, grounding daily routine
  • more about eating with the season and balancing the hot Pitta time of year
  • BONUS: I’ll cook you a light, healthy dinner.

I can take a few more participants. The cost is $75, cash or check made payable to: Suzanne Morgan.

What you’ll need to bring: 

Just bring your lovely self and a notebook or journal. But please try not to wear perfume. There are at least 2 of us that have chemical sensitivities. I used to adore perfume but sadly it doesn’t like me now. 😦

No prior experience in yoga or Ayurveda is necessary.

If you are interested, please email or call me soon! SuzanneMorganYoga@yahoo.com

Pets and pops in the park June 28

Olivia and I will be there! Hope to see you. 😉

Two Dog Tales

popslogo-final_print-227x300If you read the title really fast it looks like pets and POOPS in the park, doesn’t it? OK, enough potty humor, sorry. There hopefully won’t be any poops (or if there are, responsible owners will pick it up right away), but there’s be a bunch of pets and their people chillaxing to the sounds of the Arlington Philharmonic this Sunday, June 28, at the Lubber Run Amphitheater in Arlington.

This fun, outdoor dog-friendly event is a fundraiser for the Animal Welfare League of Arlington.

Bring a blanket and a picnic and spend an hour and a half listening to the talented orchestra churn out lively classical music. Last years’ event drew a couple hundred people on a sunny, relatively sufferable weather evening.

Nourish, an Ayurveda and Yoga Self-Healing Journey – Starts Sat, June 27 and Tues, July 7

butterflyNourish is a simple, lovely self-healing journey that offers practical solutions for well being. Each month you will learn Ayurveda practices that will help you live a vibrant life. You will become deeply aware of the natural world, who you are and why one food might be healing for one person and a poison to another.

Here’s a quick 6 minute introduction:

Join me for Part 1 at my lovely home and try out the first month for $75. (Each month after is $100 but no commitment is necessary.)

Part 1: Due to popular demand, you have the option of coming to one of two dates for the June/July workshop:

  • Saturday, June 27 from 11 am to 3 pm
  • OR
  • Tuesday, July 7 at 6 pm to 9 pm.

 

This program is flexible. You can join the program at any time. You can skip months. Or you can commit to a year of well-being for $850 and receive a certification for 100 hours of training. (Note this certification is not accredited by any association, but since I am an E-RYT-500 through Yoga Alliance, you can use the hours to fulfill CEUs with Yoga Alliance.)

Each month will have a different focus, different skills and will directly reflect the seasons.

Taking this course over a period of time is instrumental as it takes a while to change our health habits and develop more sustainable and joyful relationships with food and our environment.

You will learn skills that increase your awareness of who you are. You might already be on a healing journey. If you are a yoga student, a yoga teacher, a nature lover, a food lover, an animal lover…all will deeply benefit. Whatever your starting point, you’ll be able to enrich your life.

The June Nourish Workshop will take place at my home in Arlington, VA from 11 am to 3 pm. I’ll cook for you and teach you skills for self-healing (and I’ll record the event for those of you who can’t make that date). You’ll also receive an educational recording during the month, homework assignments, weekly practices and food challenges. The June focus is on building resilience, not only to physical disease but to emotional, mental and environmental stresses.

To register:

Send a check for $75 payable to “Suzanne Morgan Yoga” to reserve your spot.  Mail to: 2100 N. Potomac Street, Arlington, VA 22205.

Call or email me at any time with questions: 703-626-8349 or suzannemorganyoga@yahoo.com.

Namaste,

Suzanne

Wild Horses at Assateague Island

Wild Horses on Assateague Island“Did you see any wild horses?”, that’s the universal question I get when I mention my recent camping trip to Assateague Island National Seashore. My sidekick Olivia the Whippet and I just got back yesterday and I have to say that Assateague has one of the most beautiful, serene beaches I have ever seen. Assateague and it’s sister town, Chincoteague are reknowned for the wild horses who populated and remain on the Island after a Spanish shipwreck hundreds of years ago. (Note: that famed shipwreck has not been verified, but the horses are truly wild and have a long history on the island.) The story and the towns came into national consciousness from the 1970 book Misty of Chincoteague by Marguarite Henry. I was obsessed with horses when I was young and Henry’s book thrilled me. So at age 51 I finally delivered on my childhood self-promise to see the wild horses at Assateague.

And to answer the question above…did I see the wild horses? Oh yeah! I had six in my tiny campsite. That’s my picnic table and campsite above!

Namaste,

Suzanne
