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.
