Love yoga, or simply interested in leading a more holistic life? The OM Yoga show, coming to EventCity this May, has it all; from world-class retailers, freebies and whole foods, to classes providing inspiration from leading teachers. Fancy something a bit more specialised? There are workshops taking place over the weekend focusing on mediation, how to avoid injury and much more as well as the chance to explore 100 stalls offering everything from yoga bags and mats to clothing, jewellery, superfoods and retreats. Fancy the idea of yoga teacher training but not sure you want to commit? There’s an hour long session with Sun Power Yoga (Sat, 10.30am, £8). For yoga fans, teachers and those who have suffered injury – or are injury prone – there’s an invaluable workshop about the most common yoga-related injuries, and how to avoid them (Sat 11 May, 3.15pm, £10). We also like the sound of the Hot Pod yoga sessions (various times & prices) which offer an otherworldly setting for your practice. On Sunday, advanced practitioner David Sye’s mediation workshop (pictured) draws traditions from around the world to leave you feeling refreshed, destressed and armed with a planet’s worth of ways to live more mindfully. (Sun 12 May, 1.20pm, £15). Under-16s visit free when accompanied by an adult. Book online in advance here to save 15% and explore the ticket packages on offer. We particularly like the look of the £12 ticket bundle which includes entry to the Manchester show (either day of the event), an OM Yoga tote bag and FOUR magazines (OM Yoga & Lifestyle – worth £4.99 alone – Vegan Life magazine, PlantBased magazine, Be Kind magazine) or the £39.99 ticket which includes a year subscription to OM Yoga magazine and a goodie bag worth £90. We’re lucky enough to have 10 pairs of tickets on offer for the show – click here to enter – and see you there!
