In Hatha Yoga we learn how to embrace the dualities of life instead of fighting them. We make use of our Sun and Moon energy, we create strength and softness at the same time. Great!
But you don't always have to step on the mat to train your dual-abilities! Sometimes a Golden Milk on the couch will do: Make it your object of Dharna (concentration) and taste the duality on the tip of your tongue!
Golden Milk is flowing, subtle and soothing like water. It is relaxing and helps a restless mind to find sleep. At the same time its bright yellow colour and heat light up our inner fire and nurture us. It strengthens the immune-system with its anti-inflammatory properties.
This traditional Indian drink is a blend of turmeric and no-diary milk and has been used in Ayurveda since forever.
For 2 cups of Golden Milk you need:
1, 5 cups of coconut milk
1,5 cups of non-dairy milk (almond/ soy/ oat...)
1,5 tsp of ground turmeric (Curcuma)
1 tsp of honey
Optional: fresh ginger, cinnamon, black pepper…
Add all the ingredients to a small pot. While stirring heat up without letting it boil (!) for some minutes.
Add more sweetener if needed.
Enjoy immediately, voilà!
