Ian Palmer shares his experiences attending his first ever yoga retreat

It is 6:55am, the sun hasn’t yet fully risen and I am sitting outside on a yoga mat, tired and stiff, wondering what I’ve let myself in for. Before I booked this week-long Ibizan retreat, my experience of yoga was limited to a beginner’s DVD, bought for me, perhaps ironically, by a family member. So, why on earth did I decide to spend a week with a group of strangers who would doubtlessly be out-yoga-ing me at every turn? Well, it’s becoming quite a popular choice. Yoga is booming in the US, where the number of people who practice it regularly has risen from 36.7 million in 2015 to what is expected to be around 55 million next year.

About Vegan Life

I count my lucky stars every day to do a job that I love. But, the best part of it- is being surrounded by likeminded people. Working at a vegan-run company, alongside passionate staff who care about animals and the environment, not only means I am constantly inspired, but also supported in my own ethics and principles. Sadly, for so many people, this isn’t the case. Many companies struggle to support, from not providing plant-based milk alternatives in an office or forcing vegan staff to wear animal products as part of their uniform. Fat Gay Vegan gives some great advice on negotiating being a vegan in a non-vegan workplace on p32 and we’ve rounded up some great vegan-friendly career ideas on p106. We also spoke to two entrepreneurs who have bit the bullet and set up their own vegan businesses — they give us their tips on p112. I was contacted a little while ago by the talented vegan photographer Jordan Hall, who was working on a project called What does it look like to be vegan? Jordan’s goal was to highlight the diversity and individuality within our community and hear some of the stories of fellow passionate vegans. We’re delighted to showcase her work on p34. Also, we have a brilliant interview with the inspiring Joey Carbstrong on p18, we chat to campaigner Nina Jackel, the powerhouse behind Lady Freethinker, on p28, and Maria Slough meets artist and ethical influencer Emily Lamb on p96.
