Yoga Garden

Come practice with some of the areas most talented certified yoga instructors. All classes are designed for everybody and every-body, from beginners to the more practiced alike. Last year we had 6 different instructors leading different styles of classes throughout the weekend so stay tuned - we have even more up our sleeves for this year!

Yoga is like music: the rhythm of the body, the melody of the mind, and the harmony of the soul create the symphony of life - B.K.S. Iyengar

Kids Activities

Come Create With Us!

We take our kids area pretty seriously around here. Free activities ranging from instructor led art classes to creating your own spirit walking stick, every kiddo there will have many opportunities to embrace their inner artist and take home a peace of the festival.

I would teach children music, physics, and philosophy; but most importantly music, for the patterns in music and all the arts are the keys to learning - Plato
