Well, it was bound to happen... I think. I had put it out into the Universe a few too many times over the last 2 years and now the time has come to see it through. NOMADIC Yoga Festival is happening on May 19th in Albuquerque and I couldn't be more excited about it.
It's been a month since NOMADIC was announced and I'm here to tell you, hosting a yoga festival is NO JOKE! I'm pretty sure I have grey hairs to accompany my blonde-ish color to serve as proof. There is no manual, no how-to guide or Yoga Festivals for Dummies. Hell, there isn't even a "How to throw a big ass festival" blog post that I found to be helpful. Thankfully I keep unbelievable company because if it wasn't for the support of my friends and family both on and off the mat, I am CERTAIN this festival would not be happening.
But enough about that.
I am excited that NOMADIC is coming and is here to stay (if I have anything to say about it). NOMADIC was created to bring a space for all of New Mexico to step onto their mat to learn, grow and connect. It's purpose is to showcase the talents of local yogis, artists, jewelry designers, entrepreneurs, business owners, food & drink companies and so many more to share why they make NM special in their own right.
There are a lot of local yoga studios in town that offer classes from some of the most talented and experienced yoga professionals. There are also a lot of spaces that offer teachings from new and fresh instructors. Sure, business is business and there is a lot that you have to do to keep the lights on, but for one day, we are breaking down the walls and creating a space to step out of your normal studio space or comfort zone and step into NOMADIC. We are bringing in all kinds of yoga teachers from all sorts of backgrounds to lead you through a day of yoga and fitness. Yes, FITNESS - we have Pilates and Barre friends meeting us on the mat!
There will be live music yoga classes, meditation, yin, acro, oils, Kundalini, Vinyasa, Power, not-so-power, workshops and a Silent Disco Yoga Flow class. There is literally something for everyone. If you come and find that there wasn't something for you then I want you to email me personally after the event and tell me about it and we will fix that for next year.
Our vendor list is growing and we are taking the approach of something new and different - a LIVE Market. We want our vendors to SHOW you what they do the best way that they know how. Stay tuned for more information on all that we mean by this as you won't want to miss it.
I could go on and on, but instead, I will let the information we are sharing on social media and www.nomadicyogafestival.com speak for itself. Of course, tickets go on sale tomorrow and we hope that you join us for this very special day. I promise when I say, you won't want to miss it.
See you soon yogis!
