My workout: ‘People are surprised how physical ashtanga yoga is’

Vivien Ryder, 51, on how yoga is good for both the mind and body

I took up ashtanga yoga in 2002, just after the death of my dad. My mum bought me a book token for my birthday and had written “love from Mum – and I’m sure Dad too”. I wanted this “parting gift” to be something that would help me remember him. I was in Waterstones and a book called Power Yoga by Beryl Bender Birch grabbed my attention immediately. That book changed my life. I’ve not stopped practising yoga since.

There are many forms of yoga, but ashtanga is one of the most physical. It involves a set series of movements – the same every time – which takes just over an hour to complete. (Though some days, if I haven’t got time, I’ll just do what I can.) You’re either holding a posture for five deep breaths, or moving into the next one.

Rachel Nickell’s son: ‘That’s what I remember most – the moment I knew she was gone’

Aged nearly three, Alex Hanscombe saw his mother, Rachel Nickell, murdered in front of him. It was a case that shocked the nation. Anna Moore meets him and his father, André, and finds, after 25 years, that they have a remarkable bond

A young mother ambling across Wimbledon Common with her dog and her young son on a perfect July morning in 1992. A frenzied attack from an unknown assailant. A media circus. A botched police investigation.

The murder of Rachel Nickell was one of the most high-profile crimes of the last few decades. Her name conjures an instant picture of her blond hair and laughing face. The names and faces of her young son – who witnessed the attack – and her bereft partner, Alex and André Hanscombe, are probably less familiar, which is just as they wanted it. Unable to live in the spotlight, they left the UK just months later to begin again. Now, 25 years later, side by side in a hotel bar in sunny Barcelona, smiling, relaxed, this tight father and son team seems a kind of miracle.
