Yeah, yogis! Join outdoor yoga workshops under tents next to the streaming river. Camp out, sing kirtan, feast on veggies, and connect with beautiful people. That’s what Yoga Rocks is all about —an intimate festival held at Planet Bluegrass in Lyons, Colorado just outside Boulder.

Last year’s festival was amazing. And this year there’s even more going on, with musicians accompanying every yoga class and rockin’ kirtan leader Dave Stringer and his band headlining the show. Plus the event kicks off friday night with the Rhythym Sanctuary ecstatic dance ritual. Onsite camping and the Om Bazaar keep the people connected and of course, everything is green. Elephant Journal will be there, too, as we are one of the main sponsors.

Get your tickets now, the event happens August 21-23. Learn more at


Here’s a photo recap of  last year’s event to get you psyched!
