About OM Yoga Magazine

Welcome to the October issue of OM Yoga & Lifestyle magazine, Britain’s biggest, best and brightest newsstand yoga title. In this issue we’ve got a special report looking at the amazing hot yoga phenomenon, including its many benefits (plus a few cautions), and profiling some of the great studio spaces where you can get your glow on. We’ve also included a preview of the OM Yoga Show which takes place in London later this month at Alexandra Palace. We’d love to see you there! Come along and meet the OM team and sign up for a free yoga goodie bag with each subscription while you’re there. There’s plenty of other brilliant reads this month as well, spanning all the many and diverse parts of the true yogic lifestyle: from practical yoga sequences and inspirational teachers, through to healthy recipes, fitness and fashion. There’s something inside for everyone. Whatever stage you’re at in your yoga journey, thank you for taking OM with you. Namaste.
