Festivals seem to be popping up everywhere these days, and you can find one for just about every interest. Music festivals, food festivals, hot air balloon festivals, kite festivals, and you guessed it- yoga festivals! Curious about their offerings? We were too! There are plenty of festivals being held throughout the country, each with their own unique twist. Festivals are not only a great way to further your practice and challenge yourself, but also to expand your mind and connect with others in the yoga community.
