my secret place

Yogi: Sarah Highfield Photographer: Note Swaisaenyakorn Location: Sierra Nevada, Spain The photo shows yoga teacher Sarah Highfield enjoying some quiet time and open space in the gorgeous Sierra Nevada mountains. One of southern Spain’s natural highlights, it’s a region that attracts lots of tourists — although there’s always plenty of solitude to be found for those seeking a spot of calm contemplation. The London-based yogini, the face behind Yogagise Yoga (, also loves running retreats in the area. “The stunning Sierra Nevada mountains in southern Spain feel like home to me,” she tells OM. “Whenever I’m in the area, I stay at Cortijo Casería del Mercado, an organic farm with its own yoga shala overlooking the valley, where I’ll be hosting a retreat in July 2022.” It’s a truly special place.…

Just get jabbed I love yoga and all things related to natural health. I know a lot of yoga friends and teachers who have embraced the Covid-19 vaccinations, which I think is great, but sometimes I wonder if it’s just me that isn’t in a rush to do so.

I just wondered how other readers felt about this? Andrew, by email Editor’s note: Let us know what you think. Email: Back to school Hi OM! I am returning to university this month and cannot tell you how important yoga — and your magazine — is to me. It was my first…

yoga changed my life

Name: Karen Ruimy Age: 55 Occupation: Author, dancer, speaker, singer, divine channel for spiritual healing Yoga years: 25+ Why did you start yoga? It came naturally to me. The body wellness is so important to me as I am a dancer, and the spiritual energy as I am a spiritual healer. And for me there is no wellness if not integrated. I met yoga 30 years ago when I was on a lovely island, Mauritius, where an old master from India was teaching and it all made sense. He taught sun salutations and how important it was to start the day with this ritual. I have never stopped honouring the day with my salutations. Favourite yoga haunts? Power places that I visit sometimes: Sedona in Arizona is a such an incredible spot and islands that carry…
