Find Inner Harmony At The 3rd Annual Nantucket Yoga Festival

July 7, 2015

2015 marks the third Annual Nantucket Yoga Festival. Slated for July 10-12, the Festival features a number of renowned yoga instructors providing workshops throughout the weekend. If you love to stretch and relax with yoga, take time to come out and enjoy this yoga experience.

Many say that the island of Nantucket is a special place that makes it ideal for creative collaboration and conscious living. That is one reason the founders of this festival decided the island was the place to bring yoga practitioners and teachers together.

Opening Night

On Friday, a celebratory opener will run from 6 to 9:30 p.m. at the Westmoor Club. Participants can mix and mingle with the weekend instructors and enjoy an organic dinner prepared by a local chef.

Max Strom, noted author and yoga instructor, will be the keynote speaker. Guests can also enjoy an aerial performance by Michelle Dortignac and a Tibetan Singing Bowl performance by Pamela Lancaster.

July 11 And July 12

The workshops and classes will be held at Bartlett's Ocean View Farm on Saturday and Sunday. There will be a meditation at the beach session open to everyone in the community on both mornings at 6:30 a.m.
