One of our highlights, Beatles Yoga on Wednesday nights at 6:30pm. The Beatles have this timeless and universal language holding the essence of peace and love through music that I appreciate. It is beyond cool that they helped popularize Transcendental Meditation — they were seeking ways to relieve stress— in 1967 when they sought spiritual guidance from an Indian guru, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.
“It was a great gift that Maharishi gave us,” McCartney told a news conference on Friday to promote the concert. “For me, it came at a time when we were looking for something to kind of stabilize us toward the end of the crazy ‘60s.”
Well, I am a big fan of The Beatles I have been teaching this Beatles infused class that embraces the creative light within for years.
Caution: May cause overloads of happiness and not your traditional yoga class.
Local musicians, artists, healers, yoga teachers, educators, and environmental activists together in community at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Creative classes, and workshops, embracing nature and through good local music that feeds the soul.
FlowJam festival started on a 16 acre farm in Bluemont, VA as an overnight fundraiser for a school outside Arusha, Tanzania. And has since moved to a 3 day experience on a 100 acre farm in Lovettsville, VA (still in Loudoun County, aprox. 1 hour outside of D.C). The property also has access to two large creeks that join together under the trees,
The love for art, community, music, nature and yoga is the basis of the event. The idea of an event was a thought that arrived like many thoughts arrive. With the passing of the days this thought became enthusiasm and joy and in 2012 it was birthed. This is how the festival was born. Presently it has gone from a 3 Day festival toward a 4 day event, and is scheduled every Labor Day Weekend. The festival site is in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Floyd County Virginia. The flowing water and gentle mountains create a harmonious climate which pervades throughout the Festival. The spontaneous and genuine smiles of the participants, the beginning of each new day awoken by the first sun rays filtering the canvas of the camping tents, the daily rhythms marked by Yoga classes, music, hikes, fun and meditation, the evenings spent singing and dancing in the vibrant pulse of the various positive artist of Kirtan, Jazz,Hip Hop, Reggae, World Electronic, Country, Blue Grass, Indie, Rock and more, is an experience more to be lived than to be described. 1day or all 4days, visit Floyd Yoga Jam and have yourselves an experience that will nurture your soul for many moons.
