Ok, let's be real here. When we think of yoga festivals, we think of somewhere fancy... Off in the desert, or on a beach, or maybe LA or Chicago. And there's a good chance that maybe we're thinking of Wanderlust, that traveling yoga festival we saw on instagram... Either way, when we think yoga festival, we're thinking about how expensive that ISH is! But when we got word of some pretty awesome and LOCAL southwest yoga centered festivals, like NOMADIC yoga festival, Telluride Yoga Festival, and Sedona Yoga Festival, we had to reconsider. So let's talk WHY because, YES, these events can be pricey, but they don't always have to be. Almost every festival we've found offers different day pass options and volunteer opportunities. Read on to learn 4 of our reasons to go to a yoga festival this summer!
1) It's like a Mini Retreat
So maybe you're still in your hometown, but yoga festivals have an infectious energy to them. Festivals serve as a way to get away from the stress of everyday life, turn down the chatter, and turn up the good vibes. All that extra chatter you're worried about gets put aside because the whole day is organized for you. You get to be in control of what classes you go to. Local artisans are carefully picked for your shopping, food, and beverage needs. Relax and enjoy the day or days that are created with care for you, the yogi, in mind. This is a time to awaken and renew the practice that drew you into the practice in first place.
