The Gilroy YogaFEST is the result of a community effort to bring yoga to the Bay Area. While yoga today is known for its physical benefits, YogaFEST introduces the other, deeper benefits of this ancient practice. It is a collaboration of various schools of yoga, along with local businesses and supporters, to spread yoga consciousness in continuation of the global wellness movement towards healthy lifestyles and overall happiness.
The Gilroy YogaFEST is an annual event, inaugurated on 21st June 2015; the first International Yoga Day. It had been organized by The Art of Living Foundation in collaboration with local yoga teachers, studios, and other wellness organizations.
We look forward to YogaFEST' 2017. Let's join hands and make it even more spectacular!
