This fast growing niche is becoming very popular and tends to combine people’s strongest passions: their love of yoga, music and the outdoors. In true festival fashion, the format usually centers around large outdoor areas with stages, tents and a wide variety of musicians and types of music. Yoga teachers lead numerous and varied classes and there can be workshops and teachings and special events. Markets are often set up with vendors displaying a wide assortment of products like foods, music, wellness, yoga, books, clothing, spiritual and so on.

Depending on the location, all sorts of other activities are available to you and with the formats, choose to buy a complete festival pass or a portion of the overall schedule so you can pick and choose how much and how often you attend throughout the festival period.

Lots of love and good is generated at yoga festivals and you can see from our list here, you have plenty of opportunity to enjoy a festival this year. Enjoy!
