Standard festival check list – beautiful venue, flowers, music, food, fun, dancing, yoga – wait, what was that last one? Yes, it’s festival season and in amongst all the usual suspects is Yoga Connects, a yoga festival in the heart of the British Countryside. Launched last year, and already named by CodyApp as one of The 20 Best Yoga Festivals in the World I’m super excited to be heading to Yoga Connects in just a couple of weeks time!
Here’s what you need to know:
From 14th – 17th July, yogis from all over will descend on Leicestershire for a long weekend of music, classes, workshops, family fun and lots more. Some fantastic class teachers from London and across the world will be in attendance from Dylan Werner, Celest Pereira, Adam Husler, Natasha Kerry, Daniela Olds, to AcroYoga Dance, SUP Yoga and too many more for me to mention.
With multiple yoga and meditation spaces, a lawn, and a lake, the choices at Yoga Connects will be endless between yoga, music, holistic treatments and general merriment. I’ve already got my eye on workshops with Dylan Werner, Adam Husler, SUP Yoga and Circus Silks.
Along with my trusty yoga mat, I’ll be sure to pack swimwear for a potential (read: SUP Yoga accidental) dunk in the lake, a blanket for chilling out on the lawn and a non-plastic water bottle. Yoga Connects stipulate that in order to protect the environment, this is a plastic-free festival and recycling is the key. And this is a family event too, with activities for children available throughout the weekend.
Tickets are still available for individual days, or the whole weekend, and start from £99 (single day). Accommodation is in either in Stanford Hall Stately Home itself, in the converted stables, in a Mongolian Yurt or a glamping in a UniDome. Alternatively, bring your own tent and have a weekend in the wilderness.
I’ll be there all day on Sunday 17th July, snapchatting and instagramming all about it (internet permitting). Keep your eye out for me!
