Yoga DVD Stars at the Beach18 Apr, 2012 By: Angelique Flores
The Tadasana International Festival of Yoga & Music debuts this coming Earth Day weekend.
The three-day event sounds amazing. It boasts 60 top yoga instructors leading more than 75 classes and workshops, 32 musical acts performing in the classes and at night, 40 speakers, booths, artists and food. What more could you ask for?
It’s the first major yoga festival in Los Angeles and the first to focus on music and yoga in a unified way, the festival spokesperson told me over e-mail.
A number of the instructors scheduled to be there are familiar to those like me, who mostly do yoga at home with DVDs. Among the faces familiar to me are Kathryn Budig, Seane Corne, Tamal Dodge, Hemalayaa, Shiva Rea and Ashley Turner. Other instructors who have appeared on DVDs include Baron Baptiste, Elena Brower, Matthew Cohen, Maya Fiennes, Sara Ivanhoe, Bryan Kest, Hala Khouri, Kia Miller and Felicia Tomasco.
The festival will be held April 20-22 at the beach in Santa Monica, Calif. It’s no surprise the event is being held in this city, which is considered by many to be the mecca of modern American yoga.
If you can't afford tickets ($99 per day), fear not. My nose for online deals have found tickets at half the cost on goldstar.com.
As the event organizers say on their website “Yoga supports your ability to be awesome.” If that isn’t reason enough to do yoga, I don’t know what is.
