OM meets Ruby Wax

TV funny girl turned mindfulness guru – and reformed overly competitive yoga student – Ruby Wax tells OM that we need to find ways to cool down our brains before they overheat

Ruby Wax is the absolute woman of the moment. Continually selling out tour after tour of her shows, proud recent recipient of an OBE, script editor for the great new A bsolutely Fabul ous movie and queen of the mindfulness movement in the UK…and she says she’s tried pretty much every style of yoga out there too.

In her latest book, A Mindfulness Guide For The Frazzled, she sets out simple mindfulness practices and solutions to help adults, kids and teens get through the day with greater calm and clarity.

Now a poster girl for mental health - she was awarded her OBE for services to mental health last year - her interest in all things mindfulness and meditation stems from her own breakdown years earlier, when stress and the fast pace of modern life got the better of her.

After taking an MA course in mindfulness at Oxford University, she’s now passionate about passing on to others all the things that have helped her.

As well as her books, she’s now on tour passing on Frazzled tips and techniques to live theatre audiences in the UK and overseas. And, in Mar ch, she announced a partnership with Marks & Spencer to roll out Frazzled Cafes across the country, to allow more people to open up about mental health issues in a welcoming high street space.

About OM Yoga Magazine

Welcome to the May issue of OM Yoga & Lifestyle magazine. This month, we’ve got a big report looking at all things mindfulness. It’s timely and it’s never been more popular, the mindfulness movement is sweeping the land. And for good reason too: many believe that it offers an antidote to the stress of modern day living and today’s culture of being permanently switched on. For yoga fans, the benefits of mindfulness are nothing new, of course. It’s an intrinsic part of the practice, tuning in to the body, softening and quieting the mind to experience the moment and find the flow. Beauty is all around us if we only take a moment to stop and appreciate it. Start right now. Take a deep breath and pause before you dive into OM. Have a magical month, folks, and I hope to see you on the mat real soon.
