Yoga has never been more popular, and for good reason. This simple practice now helps millions of people worldwide to better navigate the stresses and strains of modern-day life with all its body-and brainboosting benefits. That’s never been truer than today and the uncertain times we are all living through.

It’s understandable then why more and more people are seeking to train as teachers. For many, that means a quest to deepen their own understanding and appreciation of this ancient practice; for others, it is the start point for an exciting new career doing something they love.

If you’re thinking about yoga teacher training then you’re definitely in the right place. Inside this issue of OM, we’ve got all you need to know: what your options are, how to find the right course for you, what to expect once it begins, and even tips to create the yoga business of your dreams after you’ve qualified.

If that all sounds a bit daunting, don’t worry. Sit back and let some of the best yoga teachers on the planet guide you through the whole amazing experience. It’s an unforgettable journey. Our yoga teaching training guide starts on page 45.

We’ve also got plenty of other great content this month too, including a fascinating interview with our cover star, the inspirational Mumtaz Haque. This Nottingham-based teacher and studio owner is a true pioneer in the UK yoga world today and is keen to champion the practice and its benefits among all communities.

Inside, you’ll also find all the usual goodies as well, from healthy recipes and the latest yoga eco-fashion to anatomy, meditation and lots more.
