Santa Fe has a bustling art scene, music scene, and yoga scene.

The first ever Santa Fe Yoga Festival will take place over Labor Day Weekend in Santa Fe, New Mexico this year, showcasing a multi-day celebration of yoga classes with internationally celebrated instructors, daily meditations, dharma talks, hikes, farm to table dinners, DJ hosted pool parties and live music, all taking place at Bishops Lodge Ranch and Resort from August 28-31, 2014.

“The opportunity to bring our yoga community together with leading instructors, speakers and musicians in this breathtaking location is truly exciting,” said Kurt Young, one of three founders. “We know that as a destination, Santa Fe is already a hot spot, and it is the perfect atmosphere for people searching for a chance to reflect, focus on fitness of the mind and body, and connect with others.”

Early bird passes are on sale until June 31, costing $299, while Adventure Passes and Fiesta 1 Day Passes will be on sale for $149 and $399, respectively, starting July 1, 2014. Tickets are also available for individual speakers and musical events hosted by the festival.

For attendees, the festival will be an opportunity for personal growth and community connection as well as the chance to practice with some of the world’s great yoga teachers and scholars. In addition to yoga workshops, the festival’s offerings will include top musical acts, DJ hosted pool parties, Vedic chant sessions, Navajo drum ceremonies and Kirtan concerts. The festival will welcome presenters from a variety of backgrounds ranging from globally-renowned teachers to local favorites including David Frawley, Tias & Surya Little, Mark Whitwell, Micheline Berry, Shannon Paige, Shawn Parell, Dave Romanelli, Josh Schrei, Sean Tebor, Emily Branden and Jessica Winderl. World famous photographer Robert Sturman will also be on hand to capture the mix of yogic arts against the backdrop of Santa Fe’s enchanting landscape.

The Festival will host over 108 classes and workshops in all, many of which will be presented with live music and local DJs. A festival for the whole family, other activities will include spa services, hayrides, horseback riding, mountain biking and pool parties. Kids can also have fun at the Bishop’s Lodge Kids Camp, open daily during summer months. A marketplace hosted by festival sponsors will sell yoga-related products such as books, active wear, shoes, jewelry, and art. The festival will also host cooking classes and a farm-to-table dinner for guests to enjoy local organic food paired with wonderful wines from local vintners.

Santa Fe Yoga Festival is committed to spreading love. To this end, a portion of proceeds will be donated to a variety of national and local charities including the Santa Fe Animal Shelter and Anahata International, a nonprofit bringing trauma-sensitive yoga and mindfulness immersions to places like Rwanda and the West Bank.
