Colorado’s Premiere Yoga Festival Announces 2019 Yoga Lineup
Ninth Annual Hanuman Festival June 13-16 Offers Internationally Renowned Leaders in the Health, Wellness & Global Service Community
Hanuman Festival announces line-up of world-renowned yoga teachers featuring Yogrishi Vishvketu, Saul David Raye, Sianna Sherman, Amy Ippoliti, Govind Das and Radha, Gina Caputo, Suzanne Sterling, and Wah!. The festival, scheduled June 13 – 16, is held in beautiful Boulder, CO and features a variety of practices and ceremonies, dedicated to honoring the deep wisdom of yoga.
2019 marks the ninth annual national reunion of health and wellness practitioners, promising a vibrant and transformational experience for the hundreds of health-conscious attendees who flock to Colorado for this one-of-a-kind festival.
Hanuman Festival strives to curate an intentional event to awaken ourselves and celebrate life. By bringing the community together and through prayer, yoga, music, mantra and dance, we awaken and inspire each other into the most heart-centered, present, and loving versions of ourselves. And in community, one is inspired to celebrate the incredible existence and opportunity to be alive, in gratitude, and in the full expression of ourselves.
Hanuman Festival believes society needs yoga more than ever. This year’s theme “Keeping it Real” will invite conversation in classes and panel discussions around spiritual ego, learning how to identify “spiritual bypassing,” and how we can avoid the pitfalls and blindspots of being a yogi. Hanuman Festival wants to empower students to have a discerning eye towards that which keeps us from curating meaningful connections and happiness, and hopes illuminating a shadow aspect of the practice will help us all return to our authentic selves.
The festival line-up also includes master teachers Amber Ryan, Eddie Modestini and Kristin Bosteels, Girish, Heidi Wirtz, Jaya Lakshmi and Ananda, Kat Tudor, Kriste Peoples, Laura Plumb, Miguel Angel Vergara, Nataraja Kallio, Sreedevi Bringi, YogaSlackers teachers Matt & Kristen, and many more!
On Thursday, June 13, world-renowned teachers Amy Ippoliti and Govind Das and Radha are scheduled for half-day Immersions that will allow the practitioner to spend more time on a particular topic. Immersion details.
