Stretch Your Consciousness

“We mountain people, generally speaking, are connected to nature,” says R.R. Shakti, event director for YogaRocks! Mountain Fest. “Yoga takes us to an inner space and awareness of ourselves, and that same inner power and meditational awareness can happen in nature as well.”

Hence the second annual YogaRocks!, which will feature camping under the stars, fifteen musical acts (performing during the yoga workshops, providing the perfect ambience for stretching your body and your mind), sustainable-lifestyle vendors, artists, a drum circle, meditation, chanting, vegetarian food and, of course, lots and lots of yoga, on the beautiful seventeen-acre festival grounds of Planet Bluegrass.

This year’s fest features such yogis as Shakti herself, plus Dave Farmar, Tina Porter, Bear Tobin, Alison Litchfield, Shanti Medina and many more. The event is a fundraiser for the non-profit Yoga World Reach; it all goes down today through Sunday, August 23, in Lyons. For information, visit Namaste!
