Dear YOGA Magazine readers, I’d just like to say on behalf of all the team here at YOGA Magazine that we are grateful and appreciative of your support and confidence in our magazine. This month we are delighted to feature the life and spiritual legacy of Swami Bhaktivedanta whose passionate goal to spread and teach Bhakti yoga was realised with great success. His meeting and collaboration with the Beatles also left a lasting legacy in the UK. We also catch up with Nick Boragi, Design Director for Our Siddhi, one of the most sought after and original yoga lifestyle brands. The creative ‘spirit’ and ‘love’ invested into the company is self-evident in its cutting-edge designs and ethos. We definitely loved everything about Our Siddhi and hope you do too. June issue features a wide range of diverse subjects that form an intrinsic part of the yoga lifestyle. We’ve got experts providing A-list advice, guidance, tips and more on a range of subjects including Mindfulness practices, Mindful Yoga, Chakra yoga, Kundalini yoga, Meditation in practice, Wellness Bathing, Happiness, how to use essential oils for meditation, Yoga for Special Needs, international Travel Tips for Yoga Teachers and lots more. With summer approaching full swing you’ll fi nd some great practical yoga exercises and workouts inside. Joanna Cowper and Ana Brett and Ravi Singh are just some of our stellar contributors providing you with step by step instructions on summer work-outs and exercises to work on your energy centres. I’d like to just to quote here a part of Our Siddhi’s ethos, which is also a reminder to everyone about the purpose of why yoga is practised: “We believe that everyone possesses a unique power within themselves. We believe that power should drive us to enrich the lives of others. We believe in the ripple effect – that small acts of kindness can reverberate exponentially. We believe that an ancient practice is just as relevant today as it was then. We believe in balance – between the time we dedicate to our practice and the time we dedicate to others.......... We believe that style and spirituality can not only coexist but inspire one another” (OUR SIDDHI) Lots of love Yogi Dr Malik Editor
