Labor Day Weekend Yoga Fiestas
The Santa Fe Yoga Festival (SFYF) is excited to announce Yoga Fiestas being held September 1 and 2. Joining together with the historic Fiestas de Santa Fe festivities, SFYF will offer yoga classes, guided meditations, Native ceremonies, music and more. We will gather at Fort Macy Park on Friday at 4 p.m. before the burning of Zozobra as a way for us to clear out old troubles and worries and create fertile grounds for rich new beginnings to grow,” shares Santa Fe Yoga Festival Executive Director Kurt Young.
Following Friday’s yoga and opening ceremony, participants are invited to join for socializing and libations courtesy of Sneha Blue Yoga Studio.
The Yoga Fiestas will continue on Saturday morning at 9 a.m. on the Plaza with premier yoga instructors and musicians from both Santa Fe and Albuquerque and commence with a closing ceremony, music, and delicious local food.
Santa Fe has celebrated the traditional Burning of Zozobra for over 300 years as a way to overcome gloom in an ageless dance that mirrors the eternal battle between darkness and light. It is Santa Fe Yoga Festival’s deepest intention to raise the positive vibration of our community’s collective spirit, enrich our daily practices and remind us all that we are one.
Cost: $65; includes Yoga Fiesta 2-day pass and Burning of Zozobra pass. Limited to 50 people. For tickets visit EventBrite bit.ly/2viA6LI
