ABOUT US - INTERNET SHOPPING MADE EASY!

Yoga 'unites' all of us! but three elements on this website...

1. .yogamalai. - yoga-related products made for us by a group of creative women in South India. We work with .yogamalai. using fair-trade principles. As these products are not made in a factory with the profit going to the boss, we directly support families so we know where our money is going. Please help us support them.

2. Stone sculpture and pendants made by Saravanan Sampath, classically trained in Indian fine arts and sculpture and gained a first class degree at the University of Madras. Each piece of stone is chosen for its colour, shape and sound â stone is alive; each piece starts with a system that has been handed down through the ages in Indian tradition and then evolves naturally through the rhythm and meditation of the work so that no two pieces are ever the same. Each sculpture is carved by hand with care and finished by hand with love. Each sculpture tells a story â through symbols and messages, mudras (hand gestures) and the use of characters from Indian mythology, the sculptures provide protection, give blessing, invoke positive energy, bring good fortune and peace. Saravanan works in the UK with yearly visits to India. He works in Indian stone and recently Cornish stone, alabaster and opal. He takes commissions for gardens, yoga/meditation spaces and is currently working with the sculptor Ralph Beyer. Browse the sculpture, animals and pendant sections...

3. yoga classes, therapy and yoga holidays run by Judy Hirsh (Sampath) in London. Judy has been studying and practising yoga in north London and south India for over ten years and holds a British Wheel of Yoga teaching diploma. She takes inspiration from many different styles and teachers of yoga, pranayama and meditation.

Her teaching aims to deepen practice through breath work and self-observation - to release tension from the body and mind, to feel the body's vibrant energy, and increase a feeling of well-being, confidence and universal connection. The increase in strength, stamina and flexibility are more of a well-earned bonus than a main aim. She also teaches at Yoga Junction, in mental health units at Chase Farm hospital, and does courses for children. And writes yoga newsletters...well soon anyway, promise!
