Looking for something to do this August? 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 Hillary Atalina, partnerships and talent manager at the Tahoe Yoga Festival taking place in South Lake Tahoe, 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?
I’ve always found inspiration through the collaboration with passionate individuals. When Jess came to me with the idea of building a festival, I didn’t think twice about working on this project with her. She has shown me that bringing ideas to life is possible with determination, humility, and imagination. I am thankful to be working on this event with a badass group of women and to be influenced by these movers, shakers, and dream makers that make up the TYF team.

Jess Broyles, owner of OMNI Tahoe yoga studio, is the visionary behind the festival and she envisioned the festival as a transformative journey bringing together the power of yoga, music, mindfulness, and community. According to Jess, “My goal in creating the Tahoe Yoga Festival is the same as the goal for our studio and many other events I am involved in, to invite community members into a positive, non-judgemental, and fun environment while supporting our local businesses as a collective.”

What makes your festival unique?
The location! The festival is located on the Heavenly Mountain Resort, right in the heart of South Lake Tahoe. To access the festival, guests take a gondola ride up the mountain overlooking the beautiful Lake Tahoe. Guests also have the option to explore the mountains surrounding trails, blending yoga and nature.

What offering/presenter or class are you most excited about for this year’s event?
We are hosting some of the region’s most influential teachers and presenters. I am especially excited to see Yoga Trade Founder Erica Hartnick lead a discussion on creativity and community.

Looking for something to do this August? 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 Krystal Denham, Director of Free State Yoga Festival taking place in Lawrence, KS 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?
The seeds of inspiration first took root during yoga teacher training, while exploring many modalities of yoga and meditation for my certification. I am driven by the realization that yoga holds the key to unlocking the dormant potential within, I yearned to channel this transformative power into an event that would envelop all students in its ethereal embrace. My vision is to weave together the wisdom of revered yogis, the grace of movement, and the nourishment of conscious living. Free State Yoga Festival manifests the belief that through the unison of body, mind, and spirit, we can transcend limitations and embark on a transformative journey toward self-realization.

What makes your festival unique?
Picture a kaleidoscope of community experiences, workshops, classes, discussions, vendor shopping, and food for all diet where the extraordinary becomes ordinary and the mundane is left far behind. FS Yoga Fest dances upon the edge of innovation, a mystical realm where ancient wisdom harmonizes with contemporary expressions. It is here that tradition embraces evolution, forging a path that simultaneously honors the roots of yoga and dares to venture into uncharted territories. At the heart of our festival lies inclusivity and an opportunity for self-discovery. We celebrate an array of yoga styles, inviting renowned teachers to guide practitioners on an exquisite journey. Imploring our students to find a yoga style they love. From Hatha to Vinyasa, Kundalini to Ashtanga, Buti to SUP Yoga, our festival is a melting pot where yoga unfolds in all its glorious forms.

What offering/presenter or class are you most excited about for this year’s event? 
I am thrilled for the entire day. I would love to attend all our presenters’ offerings. And, as the owner of the SUP Yoga company, I am most excited to share my passion and teach SUP Yoga.

I’ve been fortunate to go to other yoga festivals and they have been the most transformational experiences of my life.  I wanted our local community to have access to those experiences right here in our beautiful mountains of NH!  

What makes your festival unique?
This is New Hampshire’s first yoga festival! Never before has our neck of the woods had an event to come together, strengthen, and celebrate the yoga community, healing arts, and collective well-being. This will be a first of hopefully many for years to come as we all learn and grow together. 

What offering/presenter or class are you most excited about for this year’s event? 
I can’t pick just one, I’m so excited for everyone that will be presenting! Which is why we have a panel discussion with a handful of presenters on Saturday at 12:30pm.  I will moderate the group as each presenter shares their own accounts of how yoga has benefited their mental health and wellbeing.  We feel this conversation is more important now than ever, and hearing from the presenters is sure to be a heartfelt and inspirational experience, and one not to miss!
