What inspired you to create a yoga festival?

More than ever, we need opportunities to connect in real-time, face to face with others — no screens! Safe spaces that focus on authentic connection are necessary in order for healing to happen, and we believe that the need to heal is a universal condition of life. It’s our mission and our passion to create these safe spaces for authentic connection, joy, and unity through yoga.

What makes your festival unique?

Our location! Bend, Oregon, is an outdoor adventure wonderland, as well as a thriving and exciting mountain town, so our fest-goers get to paddle board, learn to mountain bike, take breath-taking hikes, explore a phenomenal food scene, and even learn to climb at world-class places like Smith Rock. The opportunities are endless, making our fest a perfect vacation or retreat experience!

What offering/presenter or class are you most excited about for this year’s event?

I’m most excited about the possibility of Janet Stone headlining our festival in 2023, but all of our presenters are exceptional — any one of them could headline any festival in the world!
