As summer heats up here in San Diego, getting outside is a must

There’s nothing better than enjoying the great San Diego outdoors. Since temperatures average in the 70s with very few rainy days, it’s the perfect place for a fun, active lifestyle--and nothing celebrates that more than the Festival of Yoga & Healthy Living. This year, the festival will be held on Sunday, June 23rd at Waterfront Park, where you can join over 2,500 other yogis and healthy lifestyle enthusiasts on the park’s lawns for eight hours of peace and practice. 

Stretch Out

With over 30 different yoga and meditation classes, there is truly something for everyone regardless of their level of expertise. Learn about Ayurveda (a holistic approach to healing) from Mas Vidal, and follow Laura Monk from CorePower Yoga during vinyasa. Practice classical Hatha yoga at the Pilgrimage of the Heart main stage, and remember yoga is truly for everyone with chair yoga sponsored by Silver Age Yoga

The festival features 14 partners from the greater San Diego area, so you might find your new favorite studio in Del Mar or connect with an inviting healing center in Encinitas. Classes will be held simultaneously across five stages, so whether it’s high flying during acro-yoga or centering yourself with the breath control of pranayama, there will be a class for you.  

Wind Down

Being physically active is only one supporting aspect of a well-rounded healthy life. We must also fearlessly prioritize mental and spiritual healing in order to carve a space for it in our hectic lives. Take it easy at the Soul of Yoga sound immersion tent during crystal bowl meditation and lay old stress to rest under the soundwaves of dual didgeridoos during Dronezone sonic transformation. 

If you want something a little more uptempo, check out the live Indian music performed by Rahis Khan. It includes everything from poetic Ghazals to Bhajans--Hindu devotional music. 

Cool Off

While you might get wrapped up with Felicia Tomasko’s daily cleansing routine talk at the Healthy Living tent, don’t forget to take a lunch break at one of the on-site food trucks. Peruse the organic, locally sourced, and delicious menus, and rediscover the importance of good nutrition. Vendors like Chosen Foods emphasize the power of the food we bring to the table and its ability to influence the quality of our lives.  

Don’t forget your reusable shopping bags so you can take home a souvenir or two. The 60 earth-friendly vendors will have everything from handmade jewelry to home décor, so something is bound to catch your eye.
