We all know that at some point during every music festival after hours of dancing, sometimes even days of it...when you finally sit or lay down and rest your body, it rejoices as you feel a pent-up weight float off of your body. Recharging your body is almost a constant necessity when it comes to a festival, which is something that Lightning in a Bottle understands and caters to well. According to The DoLab, “Yoga is the antidote to tired festival bodies; our classes will restore your body and re-inspire your breath.” There are two dedicated movement spaces at this year’s Lightning in a Bottle festival, Luna Yoga and Yoga Sol. These carefully and creatively crafted spaces are inviting and offer yoga and guided meditation classes from the early morning all through the evening.
Whether you’re a professional yogi, or simply learning and in need of a stretch, Lightning in a Bottle will have something for you. The festival’s yoga offerings purposely range to be inclusive of all styles and levels of yoga, and are taken from both traditional practices to those that are wildly fun and unconventional. If you’re familiar, some of the practices you can find at the festival are Vinyasa, Kundalini, ecstatic dance, kids yoga, sound healing, guided meditation and more.
This year, Lightning in a Bottle has announced that they will be hosting a roster of highly-esteemed practitioners ready to lead and support your journey to mindfulness. There will be practices led by world-renowned instructors such as Cristi Christensen, Shiva Rea, Sianna Sherman and more. Furthermore, there is sure to be a practice for everyone...with a “Reconnect, Recharge, Reboot” class put on by Kiyomi Takahashi in addition to a “deep house yoga” presented by JQ Williams, Valerie Rutka, and DJ AlissaJo. The full Yoga & Movement lineup can be seen here:
