Bend, Twist and Stretch your Mind at the Yoga Festival Montreal

Posted by Amie / June 1, 2012

Yoga-Festival-MontrealThe 1st annual Yoga Festival Montreal, taking place June 8, 9 & 10, is going to be three days of poses, music, relaxation, whole foods, philosophy and politics. Whether you're a contortionist, a healthy food-lover, an academic, a yoga beginner, or an obsessive drishti-er, there's something for you at the fest.

The festival is being put on by Montreal grassroots initiative Yocomo (Yoga Community Montreal / Yoga Communauté Montréal). Participants can buy passes for the whole weekend, a single day, or a single workshop, making it accessible. And there are opportunities to volunteer (aka free, with a little extra effort and a little less choice).

The purpose of the festival:

To shine a light on the people in the yoga community who quietly and steadily share their passion - the gems of the everyday yoga community - and to bring the joy of yoga to Montrealers"

The organizers:
Montreal yoga pillars (a lot stronger than my tree pose) Nadia Stevens, massage and yoga therapist Jordan Nardone, Miranda Chapman (former owner of Ahimsa Yoga), Roseanne Harvey of blog "It's All Yoga Baby", and Anne-Lisa de Forest.

Recommendations from the weekend's schedule:
Saturday: Yoga Nidra and the Depths of Consciousness with Jamie Lee
Acroyoga with Costa Koutrokois
Yoga and Activism with Allison Ulan of Ashtanga Montreal

Sunday things heat up with: Moksha Fest with Claudine Messier and Crew
Sex and Yoga with Lauren Rudick

But with 4 workshops to choose from in multiple morning and afternoon sessions, plus dance parties and musical opening and closing ceremonies, it's covering all its bases.

This is a good idea for a potential annual festival to attract people to come to Montreal; but unlike the other annual festivals where people come to the city to overeat, drink too much, and get no physical excercise.....this festival promotes health, excercise, and a chance to expand your mind trying something different....good luck!!!

Everything typed made a bunch of sense. However,
what about this? suppose you were to write a killer title?
I am not suggesting your information is not solid,
however what if you added something that grabbed a person's attention? I mean Bend, Twist
and Stretch your Mind at the Yoga Festival Montreal is kinda boring.
You ought to peek at Yahoo's home page and see how they
write news titles to grab viewers to open the links.
You might add a related video or a related picture or two
to grab people interested about everything've got to say. Just
my opinion, it would bring your posts a little bit more
interesting.

Put 1 table spoon of the mix in 1 glass of boiled water
and steep under a cover for 1 hour. It is therefore
strongly suggested that you include fresh fruits, vegetables,
juices, sprouts and wholesome grains in your daily food and avoid excessive oil and foods that are
rich in sugar content. The spleen chi allows
the body to utilize the nutrients one takes into the body.

At this time it appears like Expression Engine is the top blogging platform
available right now. (from what I've read) Is that what you are using on your blog?
