Today, I want to share with you a few of my yoga magazines as well as our upcoming workshop and our Mums & Bubs Yoga.
Australian Yoga Journal
What I love about my Australian Yoga magazines, is that they cover a lot of content about philosophy of yoga, easy 10 to 15 minutes yoga sequences that can be done at home & healthy recipes.
If you are coming to the studio you can borrow any of our yoga journal magazines.
To find more about the Australian Yoga Journal you can visit their website.
On their website you can subscribe for a years subscriptions. They also offer a digital version which is available on iTunes, Google and Zinio. I used to subscribe for the print version but I receive mine digitally now.
