hey-stu-headerThe ‘Hey Stu’ magazine page will bring you short video clips of teachers from around the world responding to questions posed by Stu and the Loveyogaanatomy Special Emissaries (more on them in a bit). The full length video interviews have received a great response and the idea for this new project came from wanting to build on that success in a way that broadens the spectrum and caters to those who like their info in bite sized pieces.

An asana geek armed with just enough knowledge of anatomy (and really smart teachers) to make her sound credible, Peg is really just a lover of learning and uses her yoga mat as a daily playground to research and discover.

Makes 4 servings Takes 45 minutes plus possible time in A & E I could not resist naming this dish after my Irish roots. Ok I lie slightly.
