TO KICK OFF 2017 we’ve changed and improved a number of things you are used to seeing in Marin Magazine. I’ll start by calling out he new logo, as it’s probably the
first thing you’ll notice. We’ve modernized it a
bit, with a cleaner sans serif font that we think
indicates some of the changes you’ll see inside.
Those changes include the new Editor’s
Note column by executive editor Mimi Towle
(don’t worry, fans of Jim Wood’s POV column:
he’ll be back from time to time), and you’ll
also notice that What’s Inside (formerly View
From Marin) is now authored and signed by
yours truly. Mimi will be discussing how issues
brought up in the magazine relate to everyday
life in Marin, and I’ll continue to highlight
the logo a bit,

The new year usually comes
with one major goal — to
do better by our bodies.
To that end, we sent pho-
tographer Jack Wolford to
Hawk Hill, Marin Headlands,
Lake Lagunitas and Roy’s
Redwoods to see how some
of the county’s top yoga
instructors do their poses
and hopefully provide a little
inspiration for you as well.
what’s hot in the latest issue. Also new are
semiregular departments on gardening and
fashion and special advertising sections on food
and fashion. And if you love to eat out, be sure
to look for listings tagged as “New,” “Updated”
or “What’s Hot” in the Dine Out section.
January brings another big change: Marin
At Home, our exclusive magazine on home,
design and the garden, is now called SPACES;
look for it on newsstands. As before, its
content is curated and produced by editor-
in-chief/writer Zahid Sardar. Under the new
moniker, the magazine expands beyond Marin
and into San Francisco and Wine Country.
But maybe the biggest change of 2017 will
be you. Marin Magazine ’s features this month
include looks at yoga and mood — both of which
can be a positive vehicle for change. First,
LaurieAnne Lassik followed local yoga instructors as they posed and stretched on coastal
bluffs and in redwood groves; they tell you how
to do the poses and outline the benefits. Next,
Nan Foster begins the first of a two-part series
on the science of healing naturally. Hint: it’s all
about keeping a positive outlook.
We wrap up features with our annual wed-
ding story. Tag along with four couples as they
start anew in 2017.
Thanks for joining us for our 11th year of pub-
lication. We promise to keep you entertained,
informed and in a great mood all year long.
