Yoga Journal unceremoniously appointed a new editor in chief last month. Carin Gorrell was the features director at SELF Magazine, where she oversaw the health, food, nutrition, lifestyle, and total well-being content. For her new job, Gorrell left her home in Brooklyn, NY to move to Boulder, CO. Yoga Journal recently relocated to the cozy hip yoga-friendly mountain town, under direction from its parent company, Active Interest Media.
IAYB noted that former EIC Kaitlin Quistgaard had stepped down in spring 2013 (and was flattered that some people thought she should be the next editor). After a rather long transition period, Yoga Journal seems to have fund the perfect new leader for the magazine.
So what can we expect from the inbound editor?
“I’m proud to join a brand that continues to be the leading media authority on yoga,” Gorrell says in Yoga Journal’s official press release from Oct 24. “As a health food and fitness junkie and new mom, all of the facets of a healthy yoga lifestyle resonate with me. I’m excited to incorporate more fun and inspiring on-and-off-the-mat news, trends and service in the magazine, including recipes and nutrition news for clean eating, fashion that translates from studio to street, eco-friendly beauty, home and travel tips, and web-integrated wellness programs, making Yoga Journal the go-to destination for both the most seasoned yoga pros and down-dog newbies.”
More yoga lifestyle, fun, inspiration, fashion spreads, and recipes! Well, as long as her editorial vision isn’t too informed by this:
