Hooray for people gathering with a shared love of yoga in every form! The Burlington Yoga Conference took place April 2 & 3, 2016, and for me, it represented the start of yoga festival season. Summer trainings, workshops, outdoor yoga, SUP yoga, and days-long yoga festivals are all just around the corner. Get excited!
Here’s why I particularly love the BYC:
- It is close to home.
- It celebrates the amazing local yoga teachers we have here in Vermont as well as international speakers and instructors.
- It offers a variety of workshops, including full-length classes with introductions to yoga philosophy, lectures, pure meditation sessions, sound yoga, and workshops on specific postures or areas of the body.
- Good food and a fun marketplace showcasing local healers, jewelry, and studios.
- Friendly happy people!
Every session I attended reminded me why I love yoga, especially practicing with other people, and how different each practice and teacher is, which is really what makes going out to new classes so inspiring.
