The ‘original yoga festival,’ the annual event hosts over a thousand attendees in downtown Telluride for 4-days of unforgettable connection and inspiration with offerings in yoga, music, mediation, wellness & cooking classes, SUP yoga, biking, hiking, AiReal Yoga, and a free Kids’ Yoga Zone.
“Telluride is one of the most magical places on earth and it’s the perfect place for this amazing weekend of yoga and for like-minded individuals to gather,” says Erika Henschel, Festival Director.
4-day, 3-day, Thursday Immersion passes, and specialty class tickets are available and class registration is now open. On Thursday, July 19, teachers Sianna Sherman, Saul David Raye, Amy Ippoliti & Gina Caputo will offer half-day immersions that will allow attendees to spend more time on a particular topic. Friday – Sunday features over 140 offerings with something for everyone whether you’re a seasoned yogi or brand new to yoga.
For the second year, the festival has created a centralized downtown campus at the Telluride High School with indoor and outdoor venues along with hosting vendors, sponsors, and free community events. The Shanti Marketplace, which is open to the public, will feature over thirty vendors and sponsors selling and sampling everything from clothing to jewelry to art and food. Participants can gather in the community tent to eat and relax as it also hosts daily community workshops, musical acts and wisdom talks. Friday and Saturday night festivities include live music and kirtan, sunset yoga classes at the top of the Gondola, along with indoor dance parties at the top of the gondola to end the day.
“We are dedicated to creating a festival that not only offers incredible yoga and wellness experiences but also incorporates the spirit of Telluride and gets you into nature, whether that is Climbing the Via Ferrata, biking Penelope’s Cruise, doing SUP yoga on Elk’s Lake, or hiking along the San Miguel River,” says Henschel.
