Welcome to the March issue of YOGA Magazine.
This month, highly respected US teacher Irene Pap- pas talks us through five things you may not have been taught when it comes to practising handstands – one of the hardest yoga manoeuvres around, and we also have some great online marketing tips for yoga teachers wishing to build a thriving business.
Kirsty Gallagher also concludes her series on the equinoxes – this time focussing on the spring equi- nox and how we can work with this season’s energy for positive change by setting intentions, spring- cleaning and of course yoga!
Our guest teacher Charlie Smith talks us through Balasana (Child’s pose), Hindi Squat (Garland pose) and Ustrasana (Camel pose) and a Hips and Hearts sequence, which is a gentle routine to start or end the day.
There’s also a nutritional look at juicing and smooth- ies with several healthy recipes you can make at home, and we begin our philosophical series with an introduction to Patanjali and the Yoga Sutras.
Plus we find out how to cultivate patience and how we can use mantras as meditation tool, and there’s a chance to win one of 125 AA Skincare’s fantastic new Frankincense & Rose Deep Cleansing Face Masks.
We hope you enjoy reading the magazine and look forward to meeting up with you in April.
