Founded in 1975 by members of the California Yoga Teachers Association, Yoga Journal offers all practitioners—from beginners to masters—expert information on how to live a healthier, happier, more fulfilling life both on and off the mat. Always informative and inspiring, the magazine’s welcoming, inclusive point of view puts every reader in front of the world’s best teachers. With 12 international editions spanning 28 countries, Yoga Journal is the world’s largest and most influential yoga brand. Yoga Journal Singapore is part of this prestigious brand and was launched in June 2016 to bring the growing yoga and fitness community of Singapore, a rich, cosmopolitan island of yoga lovers, under its umbrella.
