Come Experience the Newest Festival in Virginia — The Floyd Yoga Jam 2012

August 24, 2012

Welcome to the newest yoga festival on the East Coast! The Floyd Yoga Jam is the grassroots, locally homegrown, organic and carbon conscious event that debuts Labor Day Weekend 2012. The event will be held outdoors on 400 acres in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Floyd County, Virginia. Come out and experience a one of a kind event, a retreat in the meadows, which will feed your Heart, your Soul, and your Planet. More than 20 yoga instructors will share their unique styles of yoga, a wide variety of musicians will provide the musical backdrop for the event, and a fantastic array of food vendors will keep your tummy delighted  with local ingredients, beers and wines.  
This soulful celebration of music, yoga, community and play is the creation of the dynamic, local production company, the Dancin’ Dakinis. In Sanskrit, a dakini is “she who moves through the sky,” and they are thought to be the embodiment of enlightened female energy. The Yoga Jam promoters are Shirley Ann Burgess, owner of Living Light Yoga Studio and Wellness Center; Laura Polant, owner of the consulting forestry firm, Artemis GIS; and the mother–daughter team of Suze and Mud Bailey, owners of RAGGEdge Gear.  All are Appalachian homesteaders, yoga devotees, and work and live in Floyd County, Virginia.
Currently online tickets are available for $125/3-day ticket, $110/ 2-day ticket, $65 for Saturday only, and $50 for Sunday only.  Three dollars of every ticket sold will be used to purchase carbon credits from the Appalachian Carbon Partnership to help offset the environmental impacts of the festival.
