April 2013 Issue


The April 2013 Virginia Living is a rare treat: a double-issue flipbook! On one side you have the April 2013 issue, packed with features including a celebration of the Garden Club of Virginia’s 80th anniversary, a look at the inimitable impression art deco has made in in the Commonwealth, a peek behind the scenes of the modern Virginia film and television industry, and our gorgeous cover story about St. Lucia, our Caribbean crush.

But wait, there’s more! Flip the magazine over and you will find the premiere issue of Virginia Living Medicine & Wellness 2013. We visit Yogaville, where what was once New Age is now becoming mainstream, we see what Fairfax is doing to make it the healthiest county in Virginia, we guide you through the mud with a list of extreme obstacle races around the state and—if all that leaves you needing a lie down—we delve into the science of sleep, to make sure you do so, soundly.

All that and more inside this double-issue flipbook Virginia Living
