How did you first get into yoga

I first got into meditation at the age of 12. My father suggested I tried meditating when I went to stay with him in Scotland for two weeks. He suggested this because I had just experienced a hard time in my first year of secondary school, lacked confidence, selfbelief and at home I was behaving like the classical stereotype of a rude, disruptive teen. I was feeling low and not getting on well with my family; I wasn’t enjoying home or school at the time, so I found meditation helpful as I was hungry for transformation and to return to a more peaceful, stable state which I could remember feeling when I was younger. I then got into the asana side of yoga before my GCSE’s as it completed the practice and I enjoyed the mind, body connection.

There’s a profile on Robin Watkins-Davis, an amazing 19-year-old and one of the UK’s youngest teachers, who’s taking yoga to a whole new generation of teens and children. There’s an article too on why more teenagers are loving yoga during this high-stress age of social media, expectation and peer pressure. Separately, we’ve also got tales from students facing up to cancer with yoga, with insight from their teachers too. Plus a new retreat that’s specifically geared for younger women during active breast cancer treatment. In addition, you’ll also find some wonderful yoga tips to help get you ready for the summer months and to sharpen up your practice on the mat. So put the kettle on, make a nice cup of tea and sit back and relax for a bit with this month’s issue. It’s time for OM.
