The Hanuman Festival is one such event. Located in Boulder Colorado, a global hub for the healthy lifestyle movement, Hanuman is moving into it's second year and has a very grounded approach to it's teacher and music lineup.
It's also located in one of the most breath-taking and beautiful mountain towns in all of America. Steeped in a history of organic living, close proximity to the surrounding lands, and of course, fantastic skiing in just about every direction. Boulder also has some of the best coffee shops i've ever come across...
Last year myself and my YogiTunes co-founders went out and had a great time there... we performed as Desert Dwellers and rocked an awesome show in downtown Boulder for around 300 peeps. A mixed crowd of festival-goers, tourists and locals. That's partly what's so fun about the weekend event - it takes place in different venues around town (the music side of it does anyway).
Here is a little excerpt from their About Us page so you can get a better sense of what the event will be like:
"Hanuman Festival is a community-oriented yoga and music festival set at the foot of Colorado`s Rocky Mountains. Join us in Boulder, Colorado for a celebration with world-class yoga instructors, mind-blowing music, inspirational experiences and a nourishing community. Immerse yourself in body, mind and heart as you relax and rejuvenate, dance and devote, connect and expand, have fun and just be…
A movement towards imminent change is upon us as we enter the Aquarian age. Join us as together…
-We honor the beauty of yoga and experience the healing and transformative power of alignment, movement and breath.
-We weave our collective threads to learn, share, connect and celebrate all that is positive in this world.
-We give back in the spirit of “SEVA” (selfless service), and make an impact through the power of community.
Yogic practice offers us a pathway into the core of our experience. World renowned yoga teachers will offer classes and workshops in a diversity of styles, including Vinyasa, Kundalini, Hatha, Ashtanga and Therapeutic, creating a holistic yoga experience to dive deep into your practice.
Each night we will gather for an electrifying musical performance. White Swan Records (the largest distributor of yoga-centered music in the nation) will collaborate with Hanuman Festival to bring you the best in yogic, heart centered music.
The celebratory highlight of the festival is the Saturday night dance party featuring Desert Dwellers and DJ Drez.Visual senses will be linked in by movement performers throughout the night with vital appearances from White Swan artists.
Music will fill the air as a nurturing respite on the main stage throughout the daytime experience.
Miraculous change happens when people with common interests work together towards common causes. Hanuman Festival’s mission is to practice true SEVA, and give to our local and global community.
