Skirrid Fawr

My place

Yogi: Lynda Statham
Photographer: Rhys Statham
Location: Top of Skirrid Fawr (The Big Skirrid) with the Sugar Loaf behind, Wales

The photo shows yogini Lynda Statham enjoying the highlights and peaks of Wales. "Standing on top of the Skirrid Fawr is special to me," she tells OM. "It is so peaceful here, the air so fresh and the views breathtakingly beautiful, every sense is heightened." She says that practicing yoga on this mountain gives her a sense of how small we all are on this beautiful planet of ours. From this location you can see all the mountains surrounding Abergavenny: the Blorenge, the Deri, the Skirrid Bach, the Rholben and the Sugarloaf. In the distance, you can glimpse the Black Mountains and all the adjoining counties. "On our many walks around Abergavenny, and elsewhere, while visiting beautiful places like this mountain, I feel the yogi in me wanting to strike a yoga pose - and here on top of the Skirrid Fawr, I feel on top of the world."
