Many of you might be looking for a new and exciting way to deepen and inspire your yoga practice, then I suggest attending a Yoga Conference or Festival. You might have heard about the big ones held in the US but no worries we too have some great one’s right here in Canada!
Attending a local yoga conference is a great way to experience your local talent, discover a style of yoga that you haven’t tried yet and an all around fun way to support our Canadian yoga community.
Here’s a list of some upcoming events for 2016. Make sure to visit this page often as I will be updating it with new stuff.
If you know of a Festival that’s not on my list please send me and email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with it’s info and I’ll get it upon the site!

The Groove Yoga Festival
June 17-19, 2016
The Groove Yoga Festival: Original Version takes place on a hobby farm just outside of Kingston, Ontario, Canada. We were so inspired by the spirit of the first festival there that we also created an Urban Edition in Berlin later the same year. While the Original Version celebrated its small-town farming community, the Urban Edition was all about the hip arts scene in the big city. These two festivals will run again this year, in addition to the Retreat Experience in Goa. The Retreat Experience will be a relaxed mix of festival vibe and vacation chill.
