After over 6 years of thought and planning, local yoga teacher Chris Belanger wanted to create an annual event celebrating the RI yoga community and its many offerings. The time is now! The first annual Rhode Island Yoga Festival will happen at the
Smithfield Community Center
Saturday, April 6, 2013
8:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
GONG BATH at 1:00 p.m.
Come join us to unite the body, breath, mind and soul as the RI Yoga Festival brings together an eclectic mix of people, yoga teachers, styles and yoga related practices from right here in Southern New England.
All of the classes and teachers at this year’s festival have been selected to show the diversity of yoga in our tiny state. It’s an opportunity to try new methods, or revisit a teacher you have not seen in a while. It’s a building block for the area’s yoga community, its teachers, practitioners and businesses. Chris’ vision is to grow with each year, saying hello to new students but also to see familiar faces, and continue to offer even more diversity in class offerings. On Saturday, participants can choose from 8 different yoga styles, experience kirtan, a gong bath and a walking meditation.
