Seeking The Divine: Sound Mediation SF 

By Nikita Mehta

What A Sweet Special Experience The Midwest Yoga And Kirtan Fest Was Last Month!

By Jennifer Goodman

The evening and festival came to a close as Gary Brachmann came to the stage, asked us to gather close and led us in singing "Let It Be.” We all sang, swayed, connected, and loved together, in Bhakti bliss. But of course, that wasn't the end! After a brief moment of silence the stage began to fill with all the artists of the weekend and broke out in an All Star Jam, passing the mic around, leading their mantra of choice that were mostly versions of the great Maha Mantra…

10th Annual Bhakti Fest: Healing And Expanding The Heart

By Ashley Shires

It was 100 degrees in the Joshua Tree desert and the sandy parking lot of Bhakti Fest radiated heat, even as the sun dropped in the sky. It was the third time I’d been to the Yoga festival, founded by Sridhar Silberfein, a visionary from New York who had been on stage at Woodstock in 1969, introducing his guru, Swami Satchidinanda, who chanted the invocation to the crowd. Bhakti Fest is a modern-day Woodstock..

By Natalie Belden

This year’s Floyd Yoga Jam was certainly not one to miss. We honored our sacred mother earth dancing to the roaring thunder and singing in the pouring rain, we dove deep into self-discovery at the countless yoga classes and workshops, and we connected as a family no matter where you came from…

Everlasting Experiences At The Telluride Yoga Festival

By Janice Brooks

The adage “begin with the end in mind” has been expert advice for many high power executives, and on many levels Yoga teachers in the course of planning out their Yoga class also adhere to that principle. So, I shall begin by saying this: Get your ticket now, today, for the 2019 Telluride Yoga Festival. There, I said it…

In AcroYoga We Trust.

By Ema Barba

People are taught “don’t talk to people you don’t know." But what I learn in this practice is – not only can you trust strangers, but you can love strangers, you can support strangers…

The Magic Of Connection

By Pennie Nichols

Yoga is for everyone. Even if you were not able to attend the entirety of the festival, we wanted everyone to have the opportunity to experience some of the magic and connection that happened all weekend long…

Wanderlust Squaw Valley: Learning To Live Like A Butterfly

By Rachel Nichols

In the fast-paced, “do more,” “be better” world we live in, it’s easy to get lost in our days as we find ourselves operating on autopilot and checking things off our never-ending to-do lists as quickly as possible.
