Our August issue is all about spreading the power of positivity and mindful living. I am delighted to present an exclusive interview with Gemma Merna, former Hollyoaks actress and yoga teacher, currently on a fund- raising marathon mission. Rola Tassabehji, in Why Yoga Gets Better With Age, explains how with each passing year, yoga provides her with new moments of stillness to clear the mind and create a space in her body. Medicine hunter, author and yogi, Chris Kilham shares methods of True Kundalini that holds extreme potential to assist you with vividness, energy, spiritual awareness and harmony. While Oliver James shares eight extraordinary things about breathing, a fundamental key to life and healthy living, Keith Lowenstein and Lyndsey Anderson continue to enlighten us about another cornerstone of Ganesh Baba’s wisdom and teachings, the Cycle of Synthesis.

In our nutrition section, Abakus foods illustrates the sustainable properties of seaweed farming and suggests how we can incorporate it into our daily lives.
