We’ve done yoga for years, and it was such a normal part of life that we’d have assumed yoga festivals were just as normal. We’d’ve been wrong. Our first was in Austin, almost a decade ago. That was in the early years. It was small, spread around a few different rooms in the convention center.
Times have changed. In the past ten years, large scale yoga festivals have become a rage.
Sedona Yoga Festival [LINK] Big time yoga in Sedona, at least for a short period of time.
