my secret place

Yogi: Mans Ek (aka Songs Of Eden) Photographer: Lena Nilsson (LenaVision Photoart) Location: Ingarö, east of Stockholm, Sweden The photo shows Swedish composer and music producer Mans Ek, aka Songs Of Eden, enjoying the stillness and peace of Ingarö, east of Stockholm, in the beautiful Swedish archipelago. As a creator of some of the best yoga music around, it’s also a place of inspiration and reflection for him; like a creative pool to dip into. “It’s a place where I find inspiration for new music and melodies,” he tells OM. “Far from the noisy city, yet still close to the urban pulse, where inspiration never seems to fade, where inspiration is constantly present, it’s where most of the first drafts and ideas for my yoga music are born.” It’s also an idyllic location…

Jess please Brilliant to see Jessamyn Stanley grace your front cover in August. She most definitely is a yoga pioneer, as you rightly state. A wonderful ambassador for yoga and for opening it up to more groups of people. More please. Mo, by email Happy now I enjoyed reading your happiness report in last month’s issue. Some of it made me chuckle and also reflect more deeply, but overall it strikes me that happiness is really about simplicity.

David, by email Summer of love What a summer it’s been, getting out and about and practicing with other yogis again in…

yoga changed my life

Name: Karen James Age: 52 Occupation: Group compliance manager; part-time yoga facilitator Yoga Years: 7 Why did you start yoga? If I’m honest, I’m not quite sure (I always admire people who can remember the exact reason!). I do know it was more out of curiosity than anything else. Perhaps wanting to try something different than I was used to. I started out practicing hot yoga and was much more interested at the time in the physical aspect, going to classes around five or six times a week. How has yoga changed your life? Wellness and self-awareness have always appealed and taken me down several avenues in the pursuit of happiness. With yoga, once I stopped being in competition with myself on the mat things changed. It felt like coming home to the essence of who I…
