Special Edition

Yoga

In collaboration with Yoga Alliance Professionals

“THE SUPER-A MAGAZINE has been producing quality online publications for a little over a year, collaborating with many health and fitness experts, practitioners, coaches, healers, and teachers. It has a wealth of informative, thought-provoking, and amusing articles on all things relating to fitness, health, psychology, and wellbeing.

With many on the Super-A editorial team being yogis, we wanted to acknowledge the importance of Yoga. And we are delighted that one of the World’s leading organisations, Yoga Alliance Professionals, agreed to collaborate in this Special Edition.

There is something for everyone in this Edition; beginners, seasoned practitioners, teachers, and those who have never tried Yoga. The articles are enlightening and informative, written by experienced Yoga Alliance Professionals Members and Teachers. You can learn more about their work and its importance in these times in my article “Yoga Alliance Professionals and Me”.

I want to extend my deep gratitude to all the many contributors who provided the great articles in this Edition. I want to acknowledge the outstanding work of Melissa Albarran at Yoga Alliance Professionals and Ann Fitzgerald, Super-A Magazine Features Editor. Last, but not least I would like to thank Dr Malik, the long-standing Editor of Yoga Magazine, for his contribution and wise words.

I hope you will enjoy reading this Edition as much as we enjoyed putting it together.

Namaste.”

Wayne Lèal, Super-A Magazine Editor
