With more and more people taking up yoga each month, Melanie Cooper provides some essential tips including the use of compassion for teachers working with people just starting their yoga practice.
This month we also take a look at Yin yoga through the perspective of Hridaya yoga, and how this style of yoga can help release old patterns of thoughts and emotions that are often stored and trapped within the body’s fascia.
There are tips on how to ‘come alive and flourish’ with a spring detox; and with National Vegetarian week approaching next month, we look at the best vegetarian sources for protein, while Swami Kailasananda provides advice on how to prepare oneself for meditation practice.
Our guest teacher Salila Thuy, guides us through Garudasana (Eagle pose), Devaduuta Panna Asana (Fallen Angel pose), and Eka Pada Galavasana (Flying Pigeon pose); and a sequence to prepare for, and perform tittibhasana (Firefly pose).
And don’t forget to enter our competition, where you can win a four night stay at the prestigious Sulislaw Palace, which includes an Ayurvedic consultation and treatment, yoga and meditation sessions.
We hope you enjoy reading the magazine and look forward to meeting with you in May.
