The 2017 sixth annual Mahabhuta Yoga Festival located in breathtaking Pensacola, Florida at Sanders Beach is honoring the Year of the Fire Rooster. The Year of the Fire Rooster comes a crowing saying, Wake up! His crow alerts us that a new day is dawning, but we must rise and mobilize into action as we come together for the wellbeing of our roost/planet. Learn to enjoy hearing divergent opinions, realizing that the more variety a community supports with loving kindness and tolerance, the greater its security grows. This Rooster greets the new day with all the elegance, strength and vibrancy of its entire being, in service to the community. This yin Fire Rooster year means our deeper heart leads the way. Expand it by opening up to everyone you encounter throughout your day. Use it for discerning what to keep and what to let go.
It will be a year of defining our boundaries, refining the details, strengthening our supports,and putting things into a certain order. This is the year to pour more loving, nurturing prana into the things that truly sustain you. The more you refine and perfect your affairs–finances, relationships, health, career, possessions, the stronger and more profound your position in life becomes.
The Mahabhuta Yoga Festival is a celebration honoring our Gulf Coast community where we join together our families to access the timeless expression of love. Love expresses itself at the Mahabhuta Yoga Festival through laughter, asana, dance, breath, meditation, children, nature, song, art, healing, high vibrational cuisine, and community. The Mahabhuta Yoga Festival welcomes everyone to take the time to celebrate and experience the love we have to give.
We are so grateful for your support by attending the 6th annual Mahabhuta Yoga Festival. Bring friends, bring family, or just bring yourself and meet beautiful people who love yoga, dancing and eating good food as much as you do. Kids under 13 are free and welcome to attend the Galactic Child Yoga village.
This is an event highlighting the talents of regional yoga teachers, artists, healers, and musicians from the SouthEast Region. There will be yoga workshops and educational seminars on wellness over the weekend with the “Rooster” room suitable for 300 people and the “Fire" room suitable for 75 people. Experience workshops such as sound healing, meditation, yoga nidra, acroyoga, slackline, aerial yoga, vinyasa, kundalni, restorative, and yin yoga. Music is alive in a majority of our daytime workshops with Friday and Saturday evening concerts that leave everyone in bliss and refreshed for the next day of celebration. Feel the love, Share the love, Be the love. Namaste
