MHYogaFest Spotlight: The Art of Living Foundation

All biographical information was provided by The Art of Living Foundation

As you all know if you follow my blog, I am covering the Morgan Hill Yoga Festival this Saturday. I wanted to take some time to talk about the amazing non-profit organization that is producing the yoga festival, which is The Art of Living Foundation.

The Art of Living Foundation was founded by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, who was born in Southern India in 1956. He is a humanitarian leader, spiritual advisor and an ambassador of peace.

Part of The Art of Living Foundation’s teaching is meditation and yoga for the 21st century. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar wanted to make ancient practices, like yoga and meditation, relevant for today’s society. This even lead him to create a new breathing technique called Sudarshan Kriya, which has helped millions of people find relief from stress from daily life.

Readers, what yoga festivals have you attended? Any tips to other yogis wanting to experience a yoga festival?

  1. A few years ago I went to Sukhava Bodhe Yoga and Music festival. We camped in the woods, and went to different yoga classes & workshops during the daytime. It was so fun, but I wished that I was there with yoga friends. My husband is not really into yoga, but came along for the camping, and my friends got food poisoning and had to leave after one night! We made the most of it, but I think it’s important to attend an event like that with someone that’s willing to get into it.
