One of the things I love about being a yogi and a teacher is the travel! Travel is my life – As a third culture kid, the thought of going on any trip really inspires me – Combine it with yoga and it turns into one of the most life changing parts of growing into my own yoga path.
As I travel and learn through different cultures, teachers, events and the energy of each location, I am reminded that I am always a student of yoga. Yoga is life… yoga is in every waking moment and how we act/react to the energy around us. Even though I am a yoga teacher, I am always the open student. Everything becomes a soul-full beautiful lesson. My heart just opens every time ♥
These days, yoga is SO popular and the amount of yoga festivals and events out there is growing all the time! The wonderful thing about living in Europe is the ease of travel to get around and check out as many of these events as possible.
Here are some of the European yoga events and festivals that have remained my favourite:
✹ OM Yoga Show – One of the biggest UK holistic events on the calendar, across UK.
✹ Barcelona Yoga Conference – Barcelona is another yoga hub of Europe that continues to inspire me. Takes place in July.
✹ Free Yoga By Oysho – A free outdoor yoga event that leaves you feeling a natural buzz. Join hundreds of yogis in Madrid and Barcelona, at a beautiful outdoor city location. Register early to avoid disappointment!
✹ 3HO European Yoga Festival – If you are a Kundalini yogi, this is the most wonderful festival to go to and join the community.
✹ Great British Kundalini Yoga Festival – This is a recent one that I have explored. More Kundalini yoga, more fun!
✹ British Wheel Of Yoga London Festival – One of the biggest yoga organisations in the UK to run this event.
✹ Spiritual Dance Festival – Dance your heart out in Spain, in the middle of nature!
✹ Yoga Festival Berlin – Ah Berlin! How I love you… Not only do I love going back to this city and its creative energy, but the yoga festival is set in a wonderful park. The best of both worlds.
✹ Yoga Festival Italy – If you love Italy (I certainly do!), this festival runs across different cities.
✹ Ljubljana Yoga Conference – Another new event to add to the calendar… many international teachers join in to share and a wonderful city to explore!
There are many more – As we go along our own yoga path, I always encourage my students to get out there and explore… have fun, be inspired and let the journey lead you to many beautiful people and places 🙂
