The Denver Yoga Festival's mission is to create a community for everyone who is interested in yoga, mindfulness, and meditation, while also acting as a springboard for the careers of incredible yoga professionals. They are hosting an inclusive event with an exclusive feel, so participants can expect to mix and mingle with their favorite teachers, enjoy intimate conversations about the big picture of yoga in our society, as well as laugh and cry on their mats with friends and family. They are really excited to be offering experiences that are not a part of a traditional yoga festival, combining their favorite things about city life into their yoga program. Along with asana, lectures and mediation, they have authentic and unique experiences like yoga brunch, tea time and meditation, yoga on Coors Field, FREE kids camp, outdoor adventures, panel discussions on the state of yoga, yoga fashion show, vendor spotlights on health & wellness, live music & dance parties, and three pre-festival workshops including Reiki Certification, Adaptive Yoga Certification and Embody YOU: A Journey into Wholeness.
They are supporting several incredible organizations which facilitate, adaptive yoga for those physically disabled and scholarship passes for those who can't otherwise afford to practice. They are also working with other event hosts bringing yoga to the masses, inspiring neighborhood events, and a new take on the dance party. Another unique offering at DYF is a student participation component which engages participants to share their favorite parts of the festival, and teachers throughout the year. They honor presenters with awards like Lifetime Achievement, honoring contributions to yoga in the West and Uniting Yogi, honoring those who collaborate and are inclusive in offerings to the yoga community as a whole.
The festivities take place in the heart of the city: the historic Oxford Hotel and plaza of newly renovated Union Station. The entire event is completely walkable and have both indoor and outdoor venues to practice and play. As the capital city, they boast an historic downtown, bustling nightlife, and mountain playgrounds at our fingertips with a seamless trip from the airport directly to the festival via our new light rail system. Join them for a world-class event that brings the yoga community as a whole together in their great city. Visit www.denveryogafestival.com for more details.
