Yoga is an ancient philosophy of disciplines encompassing breath control, postures and meditation that has been shown, among other things, to improve respiration and vitality, flexibility and muscle tone and help maintain a well-balanced metabolism. Divided into many traditions and practices, Yoga is as popular today as it has ever been and helps support a healthy lifestyle. There are many Yoga classes locally and nationally, where you can further your knowledge or perhaps enjoy Yoga for the first time or you can attend the Brighton Yoga festival where you can learn more intensively and meet many different teachers and practitioners.
The largest free to enter Yoga festival in the UK is the Brighton Yoga Festival, which has been running since 2014. It is open to people of all ages and all levels of experience from those who are there to learn specialist Yoga techniques to those who are looking to take their first ever Yoga class. Every year we have thousands of visitors attending.
It is a two-day event starting on Saturday 14th July at 11am and finishing on Sunday 15th at 5pm. It is being held at the Sussex County Cricket ground in Hove and has the full support of local Brighton businesses. As well as demonstrations and participative events, attendees can choose to sign up for paid workshops run by seasoned teachers throughout the day.
In addition to the Yoga workshops, there are food and retail stalls to visit and live music and kids entertainment too and there is free transport to the festival with the Big Lemon bus departing The Old Steine at 10am!
