Warmest of welcomes to the little YOGA festival blog page.
Occasionally we’ll do short and sweet updates via this blog platform, so you, our dear festival-goers are kept up to date on our exciting additions to the programme, with the thinking you can share in our excitement.
We’ll include a wee reflection & reminder too…
This week looking behind:
We celebrated our website launch which saw some of the programme be announced and tickets on sale.
We had a lavish and beautiful party to tautoko International YOGA Day and Winter Solstice at Wild One Wholefoods Eatery, Mt Maunganui. Thanks to Photography by Marijke, MOSH Social Media, Flaveur Breads, Soul Organics, Forage + Bloom, Organic Mechanic Kombucha & Wild One Wholefoods Eatery for helping make it an abundant and brilliant evening.
We’ve popped those pics in the Archives section of this website if you’d like to have a gawk.
We’re past the darkest day, and heading closer to the light.
This week looking ahead:
We’ll be making lots of phone calls connecting with inspiring speakers, who give a s**t about the issues we at wild & grace and little YOGA festival give two hoots about.
Such topics as:
living with less plastic
healthy teeth via your food rather than your toothpaste
making epic compost
lessons in addictive sauerkraut.
We’ll be uploading further, photos, teacher bios and workshop descriptions as and when they’re confirmed. Maggie Langeness from Citrus Yoga is our latest SUP teacher confirmed, to be teaching fun 30 minute classes on the Saturday & Sunday morning in Mount Hot Pools. These classes will be able to be booked and will be on a first-in-first-served basis.
We met some whole-hearted Kundalini Yoga teachers at Golden Yogi in Auckland this weekend. Their shop was inspiring also, with serene white cotton clothing to wear, pretty crystals, manduka yoga mats, and a collection of angel tarot cards. We loved their ‘look’ everywhere we looked. A catalogued tea collection served in glass tea pots. In the studio, white painted walls sat, the backdrop to the teacher was a large brass gong, and beyond that, white wooden blinds in half-tilt revealing the trees a moment ‘after’. Did we imagine the taste of Takapuna’s ocean? It certainly felt like yoga-ing in a treehut. The storage area felt very Japanese. Muted elemental charcoal blankets and sky grey blankets. Cork blocks. All resting in a Scandinavian wood room width shelf. We’ll be back.
Super Early Bird tickets are on sale now for a limited time and a limited number so if you wanna grab the cheap seats book online via the website now.
We’re keen to connect with Marketing Ambassadors…are you someone who either loves social media, or loves yoga and wants to learn more about social media, or loves getting involved in community projects? Email us firstname.lastname@example.org we’re ‘congregating’ soon for the first of a few marketing workshops to share and learn how to use social media effectively & wisely, and then start sharing our little YOGA festival with friends and whanau. A weekend pass is the exchange…
Go well, treat yourself with kindness, treat yourself as you would a dear friend.
