During the last 6 years the Israel Yoga Festival has grown, developed, and turned into an annual meaningful tradition. On the 21-23 of September we will gather for the first time in Kfar Hanokdim, an hour and a half from Tel Aviv but deep in the desert. The Yoga community is coming together with all its different schools and streams, to create a world and a reality full of Yoga.
Over 50 of the best leading Yoga teachers will be teaching in over 10 practice areas over 100 classes, workshops and lectures. A rare learning opportunity, all in one place.
All that will be escorted by great music, dance, events and ceremonies. Over 1200 Yogis are gathering for 2 nights and 3 days of togetherness in a huge remarkable village in the middle of the desert, with a lively and peaceful atmosphere.
Great energy is being cultivated transformative and inspiring space is being created for this time of elevation, outside our daily life, in a delicate meditative and magical world, turning purely around Yoga, awareness, friendship, music, learning, unity and inspiration.
Kfar Hanokdim is an international village in the desert, vast, spacious and uniquely designed. There is genuinely nothing like it in Israel or in the world. It is a real oasis and it’s offering the perfect conditions for our festival- a big variety of large and inspiring practicing areas, and more comfortable, adequate and pampering accommodation options. The village is very professionally maintained and it is clear that every corner and detail there had been thought of.
We love the connection between Yoga and the desert and in Kfar Hanokdim we also gain the mental and practical separation from daily life, given the fact that it has no cellular reception in most areas, which helps us to go even further and deeper into the journey.
Weather and timing also had a place in this decision. The festival will take place in fall time and in holidays time, on the weekend between Rosh Hashana and Yom Kipur, with the beginning of the new year and the special tuning in that this time of the year offers.
