10 Yoga Festivals in the East You Don’t Want to Miss This Summer

At a yoga festival you can expect to connect to yourself and others, push yourself to your limits, and, of course, a hell of a lot of yoga! Many yoga festivals also offer additional attractions like art and music.

To find the best yoga festival for you, think about the aspects you like most about yoga. Would you enjoy spending hours in one yoga class? Or would you enjoy diving deeper into the spirituality and history of yoga with workshops?

The Eastern region of the United States includes states along the coast from New York to Florida. These states tend to be a bit more humid than the rest of the United States, so be sure to wear light, flowy clothing!
