Looking for something to do this Oct? We are thrilled yoga festivals are back and can’t wait to check out all the amazing events taking place around the world. This week we had a chance to connect with Amanda Carlin, team member of Big Bear Yoga Festival in Big Bear Lake, CA who we are thrilled to partner with! You will be able to get complimentary copies of our magazine at this festival!
What inspired you to create a festival?
My name is Amanda Carlin and I love being part of the Big Bear Yoga Festival! Not only am I on the behind-the-scenes team that runs the festival, but I am also a teacher at the fest as well, and both roles are as equally exciting as they are different! I’ve been involved in the BBYF for the last 5 festivals, but it’s actually going on its 10th year.
Our festival was created by Annalisa Berns and Big Bear Yoga. Annalisa was inspired by other festivals she had attended to bring a yoga and healing event here to the mountain community, as she is passionate about building community by bringing people together. The Leadership Team of Big Bear Yoga Festival collaborates each year to bring the festival to life, relying on the special talents of each person for the final product.
What makes your festival unique?
The teachers and experiences of BBYF make it unique, as does its amazing location. BBYF takes place in the mountains of Southern California, 6700 feet up. Many of our classes and experiences take place outdoors in the fresh air under the pines.
What offering/presenter or class are you most excited about for this year’s event?
This year we are super excited to have hands-on, interactive classes and experiences, such as jewelry making, hike and yoga classes & art offerings on top of more traditional yoga and meditation options. We also feature events for kids, with anyone 12 and under free to the festival. We love our vegetarian food vendors as well as the unique retail vendors that participate each year.
