CLICK TO BEGIN!

Yoga festivals are the ultimate getaway for yogis and yoginis. It’s exactly what you’d imagine: extreme amounts of yoga, beautiful & authentic people, delicious food, awesome music, spiritual awakenings, and typically a great backdrop where all this occurs.

 

So where do these yoga fests happen?

 

I thought you’d never ask…

 

Yoga Festivals to Know - Pin now, read later!

Before we dive into the below list of killer yoga festivals, I want to touch on a few points.

 

  • I’ve never personally attended any of these festivals. I know what a fraud… But I’ve read up on these festivals, have repeatedly seen notable teachers rep them, and would love to attend them in the future.
  • Most of these festivals are pricey, like out of The Journey Junkie’s price range pricey. However, many of them offer a work exchange/ volunteer program that offers free tickets or similar perks. I’ll deff point this out for you!
  • If these locations are simply not an option for you, research local yoga festivals. Many towns host small events that will provide the same experience sans the famous yoga teachers & wild prices.

 

With all of that said, let’s get into it yogis. I will warn you – these festivals are swoonworthy and will have you researching every which way to get your cute butt there (been there, done that). Don’t blame me when your down dogging and up dogging in the beautiful mountains, just thank me instead…

Yoga festivals are a great way to deepen your practice, meet authentic people, form relationships, and learn about yourself as a person. It’s an intense moment of movement, creativity, and passion.

 

If you have the opportunity to visit any of these, please soak it up wholeheartedly. Don’t let your phone, ego, or fears stand in your way… Be present, be there, and learn from each person, place and thing.

 

Until next time – xoxo.
