​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, Talent Partnerships + Coordinator for 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 makes your festival unique?
This year’s OMNI Tahoe Yoga Festival holds a special significance as we expand to two days, allowing for an even deeper exploration of wellness, community, and self-discovery. We’re thrilled to offer an extended program featuring a diverse range of yoga classes including SUP Yoga, asana and philosophy workshops, and presentations led by renowned instructors and thought leaders. Among our esteemed presenters, you can look forward to transformative sessions led by Stephanie Snyder, Peter Walters, and Christina Wherry. This year’s musical delights feature the return of Sol Rising alongside new additions to the lineup including local gem, DJ Justin Smaine, infusing the festival with a vibrant mix of beats that will resonate with the spirit of the event.

As a young festival, homegrown in Lake Tahoe, the OMNI Tahoe Yoga Festival stands as a testament to the power of community, music, and mindfulness in fostering positive change. You’ll get a sense of our amazing mountain community as we make every effort to highlight not just our local teachers and musicians, but also incorporate local businesses and makers at every level of the festival. Our commitment to inclusivity, authenticity and variety ensures that each attendee can find experiences tailored to their individual journey of growth and self-discovery. Guided by the belief that yoga transcends mats and demographics, we strive to reflect the rich tapestry of humanity by fostering an inclusive environment, aiming to bring people together to celebrate the myriad of ways in which yoga can positively influence lives.

Share with us what you LOVE about your festival location? 

Our festival location in Lake Tahoe holds a special place in our hearts because it’s home but also, because of its serene beauty and natural splendor. Nestled amidst the breathtaking mountains and crystal-clear waters, Lake Tahoe provides a picturesque backdrop that truly enhances the yoga experience. Participants can expect to immerse themselves in the tranquility of nature while practicing yoga, fostering a deeper connection with themselves and the world around them. Additionally, Lake Tahoe offers a wealth of outdoor activities and opportunities for exploration, allowing attendees to extend their wellness journey beyond the yoga mat and into the great outdoors. We hope it inspires a sense of wanting to preserve and enhance sustainability in the region which is also why we are partnering with our friends at Clean Up the Lake so we can educate attendees on our impact not only in Tahoe but around the world.

The theme of our issue this year is JOY, how do yoga festivals inspire JOY?
As creators of the festival, we find immense joy in curating an immersive experience that uplifts and inspires our community. In a world where wellness can often seem distant and exclusive, Jess Broyles, owner of OMNI Tahoe and the driving force behind the festival, is breaking down barriers and challenging stereotypes with the 2nd annual OMNI Tahoe Yoga Festival. From the lively energy of group yoga sessions to the sense of camaraderie fostered through shared experiences, yoga festivals offer a unique space for individuals to connect, grow, and find joy in the present moment. Through yoga, music, and community, we believe that our festival can inspire joy in all who attend, fostering a sense of positivity, gratitude, and wellbeing that extends far beyond the event itself.

Looking for something to do this Sept? 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 Malik Khalid, Founder of AMADOR, Yoga and Art Festival taking place in Atlanta, GA 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 experience in the yoga community at large has been very isolating, often I’m the only black person in the room if not the only male. I wanted to curate a space where Black and Brown teachers were showcased to display a new face of what yoga can look like and who gets to practice it. 

What makes your festival unique?

The AMADOR Yoga & Art Festival is an innovative experience linking yoga, community and art all together as an extension of each other. Art is the manifestation of mindfulness and yoga is the source that ties it together. 

What offering/presenter or class are you most excited about for this year’s event?
We’re excited about Trap Yoga with Eazy Spliffarchi, an authentic teacher that brings communities together through Hip-Hop, Trap Music and mobility. Considering the genre turned 50 this year I think this offering will be one of the most electric of them all.

BIG BEAR YOGA FESTIVAL
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 Lori Klinger, owner of The Ponderosa Guest Ranch (home of the fest) and the creator and visionary behind the Wild West Yoga Fest  taking place in Forestburg, Texas 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 have been hosting yoga retreats and workshops, music events, and dinners here at the ranch since we opened in 2018. The festival is a combination of all that we do on steroids! 🙂 I love bringing communities together and Texas is so incredibly spread out, I thought what a wonderful way to unite yoga communities in and around the Dallas/Ft Worth area and beyond. A festival is also an easy, fun and less intimidating way to dip your toe into yoga and the world of all things health and wellness. While this has been a grassroots effort that is mostly word of mouth, the festival has steadily doubled in size each year. This is year three and it just keeps on getting bigger and better!

What makes your festival unique?
It has a hippies and cowboys kinda feel. The 160 acre ranch setting with longhorns, horses, and fan favorite “Donkey” roaming freely makes it a “Texas safari” of sorts. It is a true backroads sanctuary just an hour outta the metroplex that gives festival goers a real feel of relaxation and immersion in nature. It’s a one day festival, but has lasting blissful effects especially for those escaping the daily grind of city life. It is next level high vibes!!! And by pure coincidence the total solar eclipse lands on the day of the festival. We will be having a little lunchtime watch party. Almost too good to be true!

What offering/presenter or class are you most excited about for this year’s event?
That’s a tough one. Our lineup is chocked full of incredible teachers with varied styles from start to finish, but I am so incredibly humbled and stoked that MY teacher Amy Ippolitti will be joining us this year. There are so many things to get excited about…In addition to top notch asana classes, we have aerial yoga, acro yoga, ice plunges led by a Wim Hof instructor, hooping, a sound bath, a festival wide drumming circle, live reggae music, and a vendor village with tarot, reiki, henna tats, farm fresh items and all sorts of goods for purchase. We also have speakers up top to stimulate your minds while you enjoy some downtime, or lunch from a variety of food truck options. It is literally the BEST.DAY.EVER.

We are so excited to celebrate the release of our amazing LOVE themed issue! This week we had a chance to connect with some of the amazing presenters at this year’s Bhakti Fest taking place in Joshua Tree, CA this Sept where the Yoga Love team will be! We asked some of our favorite artists and presenters to share with us some thoughts on what they have learned about LOVE. Check out their thoughts on love below.

BIG BEAR YOGA FESTIVAL

Dj Drez

Love itself is perfect and it exceeds the most beautiful definitions.

BIG BEAR YOGA FESTIVAL

Krishna Das

You don’t have to create Love or Happiness, just uncover it. This is what happens over time as we find a way to live without fear, and with an open heart. Real Love is like the sunshine. It shines on everything everywhere. I have no doubts that love is who we truly are.

BIG BEAR YOGA FESTIVAL

Shiva Rea

What I learned about love
In this journey of life on the path of Bhakti Yoga,I have learned that love can be shared – beyond species – in that creatures share love and compassion beyond their species like the tiger that nurses piglets, cats that care for lil chicks, and that great bond that can thrive amongst humans, creatures, and all of the plant world. Love is the perfect symbiosis of our relationship with our living sacred Earth.

Love is our embodied super alchemy supporting our immune system, longevity, and flow states, and yet can be non-local such as the love in from wisdom beings, Gurus beyond time and space. Love nourishes us when the desert of life is dry when we feel the load we carry is almost going to break. Love gives us buoyancy. Every day, we can realize that love is breath – an ocean that is breathing us now and ultimately as Ram Dass, whispers to us, “love is non-judgemental awareness.”

May we open to the ocean of breath as love and may all beings be transformed in Divine love as our very nature.

BIG BEAR YOGA FESTIVAL

Nina Rao

This is a verse from a devotional prayer that Sri Siddhi Ma sang to Maharaj-ji Neem Karoli Baba:

Yourself devoid of attributes, you shower love and grace on all,
Desireless yourself, you are the creator of the Universe.
Formless, yet thou art the true eternal Siddha, The God of all, you are known to be bound by pure love.

BIG BEAR YOGA FESTIVAL

SRIDHAR SILBERFEIN

Love can be very fleeting, here one moment and gone the next. Best to immerse oneself in the inner love of the divine and be happy in the moment

BIG BEAR YOGA FESTIVAL

JAI DEV SINGH

Love is simple, wisdom is love

BIG BEAR YOGA FESTIVAL

Petra at The Sound Mind Garden

Love abides in pure motive. Love wants nothing of you, and everything for you. May all beings find happiness. Sarva Mangalam.

BIG BEAR YOGA FESTIVAL

Allison Eaton

Love is the answer to everything.

Divasonic

Love is the highest and truest of all frequencies amplified in the presence of sacred community – ‘Divasonic’

BIG BEAR YOGA FESTIVAL

Egemen

My time on this planet I have learned that everything is here to teach me how to love.

BIG BEAR YOGA FESTIVAL

NIDHI PANDYA

What I have learned about love is that we often lock love in our hearts and may end up spending our entire life in shrinking, terrifying scarcity. But when we open the door of our heart and let love flow, we can see it grow. And as it grows, it transforms our own life and the lives of others; it fills all dark spaces with light and eases all density into flow.

BIG BEAR YOGA FESTIVAL

RADHIKA DAS

I’ve learned that to love means to serve. To put aside, sacrifice and tolerate the discomfort of material life in order to give and share practices, like kirtan, that will enliven our true identity – the soul.

BIG BEAR YOGA FESTIVAL

YOGRISHI VISHVKETU

Openness and healing at all levels. Om

Looking for something to do this June? 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 Meredith Walsh, Festival Producer and Founder of Flow Jam Festival in the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia 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 was inspired after traveling and volunteering in Tanzania, where I taught yoga at a small village school that was started in its founder’s backyard. Our festival started as a fundraiser for this school, the Ikirwa School, outside of Arusha, Tanzania. We are so excited that this year we will be bringing the founder of the school to the United States for the first time and he will be joining us this year!

What makes your festival unique?
It’s the first of its kind. We are not just music, or healing classes, but a combination of everything with a mix of Burner culture with theme camps and art cars. It is a unique setting to get incredible music on a gorgeous property while submerging yourself into the healing arts. There is nothing else like it on the East Coast.

What offering/presenter or class are you most excited about for this year’s event?
All of it! I did all the booking this year, so I know it will be our best year yet!
