Do I need to have yoga / meditation experience?
Yoga is for everyone and at YogaFest there are so many different yoga styles, classes and master workshops that all levels will have a great experience, whether you are new to yoga, intermediate or seasoned. YogaFest works with qualified teachers who create a safe practice environment. Nonetheless yoga is a physical practice and students need to respect their own limits and teachers of YogaFest nor the organisation are not accountable for injuries.
What do I need to bring to YogaFest?
Yoga mats are provided but if you feel more comfortable you can bring your own mat. And put it on top of the mat in the studio. The same applies for meditation cushions. But if you need props like belts or blocks bring them with you. And we advise to bring a warm blanket with you for savasana or as an extra sitting prop.
