The first North Shore Yoga Festival

2949051718_2e758e3541The first of what hopes to be many North Shore Yoga Festivals is happening this Saturday, October 17 at the Turtle Bay Resort.

The North Shore has long been an ideal setting for yogis and nature lovers, so Kate Baldwin, the festival organizer, decided to capitalize on the idea and organize a one-day festival that was inspired by the many multi-day yoga conferences she’s experienced on the mainland.

The festival, which will be held from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m., will have four workshop sessions followed at 7:30 p.m. by a concert featuring internationally acclaimed musicians Steve Ross and Ty Burhoe.

There will be 16 workshops with four time slots, so for each time slot there are four classes participants to choose from.  You can create your day depending on how you feel, your experience level and what you’re looking for. There are workshops for people who haven’t done yoga before, others for instructors, and other workshops that accommodate for different levels of yoga experience.

Among the sessions offered that day: Surfers Yoga: Alignment and Fast Flexibility Techniques; Exploring the Parallels of Pilates and Yoga; Yoga Thai Massage Partner Class; Keiki Yoga; Free Your Hips, Free Your Mind; and much more.

Festival fee ranges from $20 for the music concert to $150 for a full day festival pass (four workshops, festival t-shirt, and Ty Burhoe concert). Visit True Union’s website at http://www.trueunion.org to register for festival events.

Turtle Bay Resort will be offering a select number of rooms at a discounted rate for those attending the North Shore Yoga Festival. Contact Turtle Bay Resort 808.293.6000 for more information.
