This month we headed to the Caribbean island of Aruba to talk to Swedish teacher and Internet sensation, Rachel Brathen, who has 1.5 million followers on her ‘Yoga_Girl’ Instagram account. Rachel talks about life on the island, yoga and how she’s using the power of social media to help and inspire young women.
We also feature the latest on how yoga affects the mind, and how it is being used more to help with a wide range of mental health problems including depression and anxiety.
Our guest teacher Charlie Merton expertly shows that yoga can be practised whatever your body size – as she guides us through three asanas before an excellent sequence to ‘take flight into the Dragonfly pose.’
We also chat to stress-management expert and meditation master davidji who talks about meditation, his new book ‘destressifying’ and working with Deepak Chopra.
And don’t forget to enter our fantastic competition, where you could win £1000 to spend on some stylish Wellicious yoga clothing and loungewear.
Plus we take a look at Beamblock Yoga that was snapped up on the TV programme Dragon’s Den; the best foods to nourish your soul this autumn and there’s the first in a two-part special on the relationship secrets of the chakras.
We hope you enjoy reading the magazine and look forward to meeting up with you next month.
