Dear Yoga Magazine readers, I hope you had a wonderful Christmas with your friends and family. For many of us, the New Year is all about ‘resolutions’ and making changes to our lifestyle, health or even career. But instead of focusing on these often hard to maintain commitments, we focus on the practice of ‘Sankalpa’ or setting an intention which isn’t driven by a need to change but to feel more of what is deep inside us. We also look at the yogic traditions of puri cation and cleansing to liberate our nervous systems, and we catch up with Crosby Taylor, a rising star of the wellness and healthy eating movement in the US. Crosby provides a ‘Total Body Transformation’ workout along with some delicious smoothie recipes. There are also 10 essential tips to help you detox without dieting, and with mental health a big topic at the moment, there’s some valuable advice on how to help with a partner who may be suffering with depression. Plus there’s an interview with Rose Brown from PHB; we show you how to become more confident with your body and there are five steps to everyday happiness. I wish you and your loved ones a very peaceful and prosperous year filled with yoga and wellbeing, and I look forward to meeting up with you again in February. Namaste Yogi Malik
