Summer break is just around the corner! Most of us are planning or have already set plans for the summer break. To begin unwinding before the start of an exciting summer, we bring to you our May issue with plenty of infotainment. Namaste Switzerland’s latest issue is packed with inspiring profiles, a guide to yoga for beginners, a recipe with interesting tips, and a unique DIY, among other interesting reads.

In this issue, we launch our Events Calendar managed by WinVinaya Foundation – an initiative of WinVinaya InfoSystems, which, also employs a segment of disabled software experts, enabling them to use their IT skills and earn a living.

Click on each of the dates to see what’s happening, where and when. Do send in your events to be published in this calendar as well to events@namasteswitzerland.ch. (Please note – we do not publish religious and political events)

The issue features Susan von Sury, a politician, municipal and cantonal counsellor, who spoke to team Namaste Switzerland at her family home in Solothurn. A tale of determination and perseverance that has led her to earn and live up to her reputation of being ‘strong, authentic, smart’.

Renowned dancer and musician D. Keshava has spent over 4 decades in Switzerland. He shares his story of how he brought dance and yoga to Switzerland by forming Kalasri along with his Swiss wife Esther.

Brijesh Luthra is a new Indian author in Switzerland. Read the review of his children’s book, ‘The Great Matomatic House’.

Chetana Parameswar shows you how to pack in nutrition in small portions for your little ones. Handle your picky little eaters with some quick and easy to make porridge. In our creative corner Rajani Batula, an artist based in Adliswil shares her ways to create mosaic art at home.

It’s sunny on one day and rainy and cold on the next. We bring you phrases that describe the weather in three languages spoken in Switzerland – German, French, Italian. Do you know someone who speaks Romansch and enjoys writing? Let us know! We’ll be happy to connect.

The weather may not be perfect for a jog, but it’s always good for a daily dose of yoga. Nupur Biswas, a professionally certified yoga coach and the founder of Mumbai-based NuYoga collaborates with Namaste Switzerland as an online yoga instructor. Nupur teaches yoga through her videos each month, starting with the beginner level series. In her third video, she shows us a popular, easy and effective posture called the ‘Vrijasana’ or the tree pose.

And this time around – we have a little guest -nine-year-old Dhriti Muralikrishnan who has volunteered to create a lovely illustration for us. Her art depicts a lazy summer by the lake waiting to be rowed gently in any of the Swiss lakes.

So take a break from planning your vacation – sit back, and enjoy browsing Namaste Switzerland!
