My philosophy behind U Can Yoga from day one has been and remains that you can find your own expression of yoga – that yoga is for anyone who wants to give it a try and experience its many benefits, so I’m honoured to be included in body positive issue of Mantra Yoga + Health Magazine featuring and celebrating women of all body types. Also featured in this issue: Gay Love, Yoga for Cocaine Addiction, Cancer Thrivers, India, Haiti, Dropping Judgment and 145+ Yogis changing the planet. Readers in the USA can pick up this new, exciting publication on newsstands and at these retail outlets now. UK readers, unfortunately Mantra isn’t on sale over here (yet!) but you can check out the page from the feature by scrolling down to the bottom of this blog post and read articles at the Mantra website by clicking here: mantramag.com
This ties in with the subject of my April OM Yoga Magazine Teacher’s Tales column ‘What is a Yoga Body & What Does A Yoga Teacher Look like?’ which seemed to strike a chord with a lot of readers. If you didn’t see it, you can read it here.

Paradise Eggs for Breakfast
Baked avocado egg recipe with Takamaka Virgin Coconut Oil
I grew up in a household where cooking with coconut oil was the norm with my West Indian family and it seems that increasingly more people are discovering the benefits of coconut oil. I tried Paradise Eggs for the first time recently and wanted to share this simple, healthy, tasty recipe with you. With an ideal blend of protein and good fats, this recipe is taken to the next level with the addition of Takamaka virgin coconut oil. This recipe was shared with me by Jon Denoris, founder of Takamaka and a great guy I have worked with as the founder of Club 51 in Mayfair. Check out how to make Paradise Eggs here and why not try it for breakfast this weekend. Enjoy!
