Welcome to the New Year and I hope that you enjoy
reading YOGA Magazine.
We are delighted to start 2019 with a magazine packed with in-
formative and interesting features, tips and plenty of yoga, both
practical and theoretical. In the coming months YOGA Magazine
will cover even more yoga articles and ways in which you can prac-
tically apply it into your day-to-day life.
If you are new to yoga or thinking of starting a class but are unsure
of what type of yoga to practise, then have a look at our feature on
‘What you need to know’. You’ll also love our Teacher of the Month
section. Carlos Alberto Buitargo Santamaria is our cool Columbian
yoga teacher who provides an energising Mandala yoga workout
to help kick-start your New Year – enjoy!
The feature about Dipa Ma teaches an important but often over-
looked lesson, that we must practise self-love because otherwise
we cannot really progress in our life or be successful in anything.
This month we offer you an exclusive Yoga Detox for the New
Year, featuring postures that twist, bend and invert the body to
help you get toned and to improve your mind and body. Yoga is a
tried and tested therapy for draining toxins out of your body. The
results can be phenomenal – try it and experience it first hand –
don’t just take our word for it.
If you are thinking of changing your diet or eating habits or even to
just shift some post Xmas festive bulge, then we can help. So why
not start the New Year by focussing on what you eat and drink?
Check out our feature on ‘Raw Food diet tips’. Jamie Lloyd an
award-winning fitness professional provides you in-depth advice.
Hopefully, everything you wanted to know about the benefits of a
raw food diet are covered.
YOGA Magazine also visits Ibiza and explores a Santhosa yoga and
dance retreat. And for all those practitioners who love yoga like
we do, there’s plenty to think about as we cover a wide range of
subjects including the koshas, the yimas and niyamas, mantras and
more. If you don’t know what these are – read on.
2019 will be a splendid year for our YOGA Magazine readers. We’ll
be covering more in-depth yoga related articles, more practical
yoga and featuring exclusive interviews with celebrity practitio-
ners and yoga teachers at the grass roots who are making a differ-
ence in the yoga community.
HAPPY NEW YEAR
