we are yoga

anonymous asked:

Okay but the best thing about this whole scenario is that we have the 2x17 yoga date/dinner/kissing in the middle of the street to look forward to

^^ We fucking do.

so today in yoga we were doing this bendy balance pose and my instructor said ‘appreciate the pose, because yesterday you might have been a dog and couldn’t do this, and tomorrow you might be an owl and not know what it feels like to have knees’ 

and i don’t know why that is so relatable but yes sometimes i am an owl and i don’t know what knees feel like thank you for putting that into words 

Somehow Sanvers gets gayer every episode, like I don’t know how this happened but we started with pizza date and then vegan ice cream and then barenaked ladies concerts and now we’re getting yoga?? look out for season 3 where sanvers go to a melissa etheridge concert with their adopted cat wearing plaid and snapbacks like how much gayer can this show get

#UseYourTalents #BEASTMODE

Translation of “Føler det du føler” (Feel what you feel)

Text message from Isak’s father:

Hi. I’ve bought tickets to the Christmas concert at Sagene church next week, was thinking you and I could bring mom, it would mean a lot to her.

Even (off screen): That’s thanks for letting me use your shower.

Eskild (off screen): Did you use our shower?

Even: I’ve used your shower.

Eskild: T-the hair products aren’t mine, or like, not all of them.

Noora: No, but you can use whatever you wanna.

(Isak enters)

Even: Hey! Good morning!

(kisses Isak)

Even: I made us breakfast. Oh! (brushes something off Isak’s cheek) I hope you’re hungry, ‘cause I’ve made lots of food.

Noora: Yeah, uh, should we..change to…on the..should we go and change at yoga, or.. yeah.*

Even: Oh, you’re taking yoga class?

Eskild: We’re not taking yoga class.

Noora: Yes, we are.

Eskild: Oh! That kind of yoga! Err…yep. Oh, I’d forgotten. We’re going to yoga class now. Water yoga.

Even: Water yoga?

Eskild: Yes, at Bislett pool. So, I think we just have to…

Noora: We just have to go.

Eskild: But please help yourself to cayenne pepper in the freezer, or in the cupboard, right in the middle of the fridge..So..Bye! Yes, bye-bye!

Even: Listen, I didn’t know what you liked so I just made everything. What movie?

Isak: Movie?

Even: Taste this. Is it good?

Isak: Mhm.

Even: The secret is one spoon of sour cream.

(silence, radio playing)

Isak: When I woke up…I thought you’d left.

Even: Hey you, I was only in here making breakfast. And chatting to your friends.

Isak: Does Sonja know..where you are?

Even: Fuck Sonja. We’re not together anymore.

Isak: But last time you said it was over you made out with her two days later, right. It’s not so easy for me to just give a shit about her, Even.

Even: Well, what you need to understand is the thing about Sonja is that she’s so in control. Sometimes I feel like she knows me better than I know myself, because everything she says is true and…that’s what I’m so sick and tired of. I feel that…she can’t feel the things I feel, or think, for that matter. You know?

Isak: It’s only you who can feel what you feel.

Even: And I haven’t felt like this, ever.

Isak whispers: Me neither.

(new song starts playing on the radio)

Even: This song, or what?!

Isak: Huh?

Even: Gabrielle?

Isak: Are you kidding?

Even: No..!

Isak: Oh my God, this is a hashtag, what the fuck..!

Even: What?

Isak: When you’ve found the man of your dreams and it turns out he likes Gabrielle..!

Even: Am I the man of your dreams??

Isak: Well..

Even: Or what..*looks around* are you talking about me? Am I the man of your dreams??

Isak: That what the hashtag is, you know that..!

Even: No, excuse me, you just said I was the man of your dreams!

(they kiss)

Even: Say it again.

Isak: Hm?

Even: Say it again.

Isak whispers: You’re the man of my dreams.

(they kiss)

Isak: It’s shite..!

(Even sings along; Isak’s embarrassed)

Very roughly the lyrics of the song (sorry I guess it doesn’t make much sense in English), what Even sings along to:

Five hot ladies up in the club, we demand: Turn it right up to Heaven!
If there are five hot guys, doesn’t matter, ‘cause there’s no one else I’d rather do this with.
Maybe we’re a bit dirty, but what does it matter when it no longer is day?
Five hot ladies, standing in line, dancing alone, but we do it together.
You get me to so pumped up, and there’s nothing that can deflate me!
You get everything to burst boiling hot, there’s no one else I’d rather do this with!
Five hot ladies up in the club, we demand: Turn it right up to Heaven!…

Guys, sorry this was so late, I was asleep..But what a dream to wake up to!

(And Noora and Eskild’s utterly unintelligible, awkward exit…oh my god 😂  what they say literally makes no sense in Norwegian either…!)

The Yoga Farmer is back!!!

When we first posted this back in 2009, the copyright holders attempted to destroy EIT! That was the first of many Youtube channels that we’d lose over the years. In 2017, we are still in constant fear of having our Facebook/Youtube/etc followers suddenly removed. But for now, we’ll look into this yoga farmer’s VHS soul, laugh, and wonder how the fuck did we all get into this mess?

We’re encouraged to meditate every day, even for a short time, in order to cultivate this steadfastness with ourselves. We sit under all kinds of circumstances - whether we are feeling healthy or sick, whether we’re in a good mood or depressed, whether we feel our meditation is going well or is completely falling apart. As we continue to sit we see that meditation isn’t about getting it right or attaining some ideal state. It becomes increasingly clear that we won’t be free of self-destructive patterns unless we develop a compassionate understanding of what they are.

Dean pouted dramatically. “C’mon, you’ve got to admit… It’s yoga!  We’re hunters, fighters, warriors… We don’t need to do shit like squatting with the gym rats or running for no fucking reason.” He glanced pointedly at his brother before returning his attention to you. “Why the hell are you so worried about touching your toes?”

Sam snorted from one of the hotel beds.  “You couldn’t even touch your toes if someone bribed you with hookers and pie.”

Alternatives to Yoga, for Catholics

The New Year is an ideal time to begin to put into action your new plans and resolutions for the year ahead.

Health is wealth, and it is vital to take care of your body via diet and of course, regular exercise.

If like me, you hate the idea of going to the gym, there are lots of other activities to help keep you fit.

Yoga seems to be very popular, but as Catholics and Christians, we know that Yoga is not permissible due to it being based on Hindu philosophies and Eastern mystical theologies which is in dissonance with Christianity. 

Here are some alternatives to yoga you can use:


I am a big fan of ballet, which combines dance, stretching, flexibility and also strength training.  It not only improves your posture, strength and flexibility, but it can keep you trim and fit too. 

I am naturally very slim so I don’t do much cardio or fat-burning exercises, however ballet is a very good way to improve muscle tone and core strength.  


Originally created to help athletes recover quicker from their injuries, pilates is fast becoming popular.  It makes a great alternative to yoga as it also helps you improve flexibility, endurance and strength.  I also practise pilates and rotate between this and ballet 2-3 times a week for my strength and flexibility.


I used to do this years ago and rather enjoyed it.  A lot of men will love this too if they find Ballet not challenging enough.  Calisthenics helps improve muscular and aerobic conditioning, as well as improving, balance, agility and coordination.
