I've just come across this amazing range of organic herbs-Not only are they organic and beautifully packaged but that have a fabulous name "Pukka herbs"
Im starting with the organic aloe Vera juice -Aloe is is excellent for skin conditions and has been used for many years to enhance beauty and aid digestion. It is also used to help regulate/stimulate the immune system. It is one of the few vegetarian sources of vitamin B12 and contains many minerals vital to the growth process and healthy function of the body.
Have to be completely honest and say Aloe Vera isn't the best tasting stuff to drink ( although this range isn't as bitter as some I have tasted) - but who cares if it works?......
I will post an update as I continue with the Aloe so watch this space and check out the large range of products available on-line from Pukka herbs
organic, nutrient rich, inner leaf gel, 100% natural

Saraswati in Gandhaberundasana, circa 1950.
I came across this photo on Ashtanga Yoga New York.
It is the only image I have seen of Saraswati practising yoga. She is now in her 70's and assists her son Sharath in Mysore.

The yoga show will be at London Olympia from the 26-28th of October.
There are a massive amount of workshops and courses to attend, and many different styles of yoga to sample.
This would be my choice of classes/workshops to attend ( in no particular order)
Michael Gannon workshops ( he has a number to choose from)
Claire Missingham "spice up your life"
Durga Devi & Cat Alp-Douglas Jivamuckti Yoga.
All of the above are dynamic forms of yoga and not always suitable for everyone- check the downloadable schedule on the yoga show website.
The children's room
Jo Mannuel yoga for children aged 4-8
Aimee Newton :An osteopathic approach to yoga .
If attending a free class make sure you get there early as these can be busy-Take plenty of money as there are loads of "yogi" things on sale. Most of all enjoy the variation of yoga that the show has to offer.
