Dear Yoga Magazine Readers, Welcome to the December issue
This month, Caroline Shola Arewa discusses the art of being present, with some guidelines that can be effortlessly incorporated for a more joyful, healthy and rewarding life.
With summer just around the corner our thoughts turn to well-deserved holidays, so if you’re planning two-weeks on a beach or at a yoga retreat we’ve got the pest poses to help you tone the body and shape up for summer, and as we transition from spring Amanda York shares inspiring techniques for the new summer season.
Sarah Drai expertly leads us through Vrksasana (Tree), Bakasana (Crow) and Pincha Mayurasana (Feathered Peacock), before a Goddess Warrior sequence designed to increase confidence.
There’s also a beginners guide to sound healing; we show nutrition can help reduce anxiety and improve sleep and we take a look back at the late B.K.S Iyengar – a truly inspirational yogi who helped popularise yoga around the world.
Plus we catch up with Jessica Huie MBE; meditation master Pradhan Balter shares a spiritual heart meditation exercise and we look at the doshas in the essence of Ayurveda part two.
I hope you enjoy reading the magazine and I look forward to meeting with you in July.
