The Manduka Prolite Yoga Mat is a mid-sized mat brings unmatched cushioning and comfort to your practice.

Yoga One's incredible Amy Caldwell kicks off this years Festival! She'll be teaching an All-Levels Vinyasa Flow class on our main stage at 9:00 AM. Of the class she says 'This is an all-levels flow class, with a focus on optimal alignment principles. Breath and present moment awareness will be encouraged. Modifications will be offered so that each individual can practice to their level of experience and desired pace. Collectively, a positive, inclusive, and non-competitive environment will be cultivated.'

Bellur Krishnamachar Sundararaja Iyengar (14 December 1918 – 20 August 2014), better known as B.K.S. Iyengar, was the founder of the style of modern yoga known as "Iyengar Yoga" and was considered one of the foremost yoga teachers in the world. He was the author of many books on yoga practice and philosophy including Light on Yoga, Light on Pranayama, Light on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, and Light on Life. Iyengar attracted his students by offering them just what they sought – which tended to be physical stamina and flexibility. He conducted demonstrations and later, when a scooter accident dislocated his spine, began exploring the use of props to help disabled people practice Yoga.
Since his passing, the Iyengar Association of California Southern Region has sought to further his teachings, and introduce his unique approach to a new generation of students. They've graciously signed on as the sponsors of one of our two large Asana tents, and IYACSR certified teacher Stephanie Lavender will be teaching an 'Uplifting Backbends' at 10 AM! Drop into one of the IYACSR certified locations to learn more about B.K.S. Iyengar and his teachings, and be sure to follow the link in our bio to register for the Festival!

We’re ecstatic to announce that Kashi has joined our team of 2019 sponsors! Coming from a long time fan, it’s wonderful to see them supporting communist events in San Diego.
Innovative nutrition is their approach to food. It means they value whole food and put the inherent nutrition of food first when considering every ingredient. It means they make their food with a plants-first mindset. It means they value not just the foods they make, but also how they make them by being progressive and mindful of sustainable and ethical farming practices. So inside every box, bag and wrapper, there’s not just real food, but a real food philosophy at work. Follow the link in our bio to register for the Fest for FREE today!
