About OM Yoga Magazine

Welcome to our August issue. This month, we’ve got everything you need to keep your practice fresh and alive...on and off the mat. There’s some great yoga instruction, sequences, anatomy and meditations, plus a whole lot more goodies too. Look out for some inspirational stories, including from two incredible American yoga ladies, Colleen Saidman Yee and Anneke Lucas. We also take a look at the Power of Yoga Nidra, as well as yoga’s beneficial impact on managing the menopause. And, inside, you’ll also find not one, but two, special reports showcasing some of the nation's top yoga studios (The Fab 5), as well as a guide to upgrading your home practice with some nice new yoga gear (Get Your Kit Together). Have a great month and see you on the mat real soon.
