I joined a yoga class after the birth of my youngest child and after a year the teacher told me that I had done, ‘so well’, considering I was the most unbendy person she had ever taught. I’m thinking perhaps it’s time to start again and who knows perhaps I’ll be able to twist myself into this pose by the spring. Anyone with the same fantasy should visit the OM Yoga Show this weekend at Ally Pally. They’re holding all sorts of taster sessions, and if all else fails they’ll be selling ‘bum sculpting yoga pants’ and other ‘yoga accessories’, including jewellery and super-foods – bracelets and burgers?

A TRULY YOGIC WEEKEND
For over a decade, the OM Yoga Show has established itself as the biggest show of its kind in Europe. It provides visitors with the opportunity to take free yoga classes, introducing them to this ancient Indian practice that is renowned for relaxing the body and de-stressing the mind.
Free open classes located within the show allow visitors the chance to try something new, or be inspired by an old favourite. Leading teachers from all over the world will teach classes that are operated on a first come, first served basis, giving visitors a unique opportunity to learn from the best.
For anyone looking for a more intense experience, workshops will be taking place throughout the weekend, providing longer sessions. Workshop tickets will be available to purchase when the full schedule is announced prior to the show.
When it is time to take a break from practising yoga, visitors can take advantage of a showcase of over 200 exhibitors, who will be providing a fantastic range of yoga accessories, clothing, super food, jewellery, retreats, and much more. Exhibitors at the OM Yoga Show are committed to ensuring that visitors are able to lead the ultimate yogic lifestyle.
Whether you are a newcomer to yoga, or have been bending and stretching for years, there has never been a better time to visit the OM Yoga Show. There really is something for everyone, with more than ever to see and do!
