This month Khadine Morocom explains how to work with the chakras within our yoga practice, and we look at Restorative yoga, which features gentle poses to help rebalance the nervous system, and we feature 6 Restorative poses that are guaranteed to reduce stress.

We also feature a wonderful a workout to build strength and stability that will bring a feeling of power and energy to your body, so you feel stronger both physically and mentally, and Julie Montagu provides 10 tips to get us waking up happy so we can have a peaceful and stress-free day

Our guest teacher, Pip Taverner, guides us through three poses before a delightful sequence to help build core and shoulder strength to enable us to work into Sirsasana (Headstand).

Plus there’s yoga for sleep, using food as medicine, and Christopher Gladwell looks at the Upanishads – a collection of ancient Sanskrit texts.

We hope you enjoy reading the magazine and look forward to meeting up with you in September.
