my secret place

Yogi: Jackie Heffer-Cooke and Megan Cooke Photographer: Jess Wilkins Photography Location: Holkham Nature Reserve, Norfolk This photo shows ‘ZenMuma’ Jackie Heffer-Cooke and her daughter Megan practicing together in the iconic three-mile-long pinewoods of Holkham Nature Reserve in North Norfolk. “We love these woods. When Megan was little we’d come to explore the magic of the forest, we’d look for forest fairies, forage and find precious pine cones to take home and decorate. Now we walk for miles with our Springador called ‘Dotty’, and just sit together in the stillness of the woods listening to the sounds. We even do some real-life forest yoga too.” Jackie teaches children’s yoga with her teacher training school ZenKids and holds mum and daughter yoga retreats with Big Sky Retreats.

Super inspirational I really loved the March issue of OM. Great content with lots of yoga and the amazing Ro Nwosu on the front cover. Super inspirational and much needed at this time. Thank you OM! Jess, by email Sunny days I cannot tell you how wonderful it was to soak up some sunshine when reading the last issue of OM. It’s been a long time since last summer, but I finally managed to get outside into my garden and enjoy a good read with a nice cup of herbal tea, whilst soaking up some rays. Great issue too! Nice to see new faces like Ro Nwosu being featured and the OMFM story on Dickens Omondi Odhiambo was amazing — what a yoga journey! Imogen, by email I am enough I really needed to hear your mantra…

yoga changed my life

Name: Shuntao Li, Age:33 Occupation: Investment research analyst and yoga teacher Yoga years: 8 Why did you start yoga? I can’t quite remember! I used to not like yoga because my first experience wasn’t great — the teacher’s breathing instruction was awful which left me feeling dizzy and uncomfortable. I must have been curious again many years later and stepped into Daniel Gelblum’s yoga class in the Swiss Cottage Better Gym. It was totally different; I was amazed that at the end of class I could feel immediate improvements in mobility and an easing of muscle pain. I have practiced regularly since then and started to explore different styles of yoga. I later learnt that Daniel was teaching the Feldenkrais method, which I highly recommend. How has yoga changed your life? My childhood friends are all…

i am grounded

When times are tough or uncertain we can easily lose our sense of self and feel as if we don't know if we are coming or going. We disconnect from our true being and get caught up in our stresses, worries and anxiety. In order to stay grounded we must stay connected to the self through a practice of stillness in body and mind. There are lots of mindfulness tools and activities we can use to help do this, a few examples being meditation, yin yoga, being outside in nature and anything that helps you to find an emotional escape from what's troubling you. For me, the practice of modern calligraphy has had a huge impact on my mental health, helping me find some calm and clarity. A mindful and creative activity…
