Fast forward to next month the fourth and the biggest yet Brighton Yoga Festival will take place in Hove actually ! At the Sussex County Cricket Ground. This time it is a two day event and still free to enter though voluntary donations are requested to cover the event costs. It is open to all, regardless of age, experience or fitness levels with many specialist and beginners classes for those who have never tried yoga before. The Festival this year is sponsored by Yogamatters, the UK’s largest provider of yoga equipment, books & clothing. Other partners include local radio station Juice FM, the Sussex Cricket Foundation, and the local Council’s “Take Part (in Exercise)” Festival.
Future plans include working with others in the local community to: host a regular local teachers forum; to provide an online directory of local yoga studios and teachers; to document the history of yoga in the city; and to set up (thanks to a kind donation of yoga mats by Yogamatters) a mat provider service for yoga teachers and projects needing to source extra mats.
