The Anahata team are really looking forward to appearing at this year’s Luminate Festival; hoping to bring your festival into balance with a series of yoga classes, workshops and kirtan.
Founder and Director of Anahata Yoga Retreat, Swami Karma Karuna Saraswati will be there to guide you through each of the sessions. With over 25 years of experience within the Satyananda traditional yoga lineage, her sessions provide a relatable depth that give you a greater understanding of yoga both as a practice, and a way of life.
Below is our schedule of events at Luminate. Make sure to save a copy of the schedule to your phone now so you can access it at anytime throughout the festival. Find more details of each session outlined below.
We also have our own stall open in the Market Village section from 9am – 6pm (approx.) everyday. We will be selling a selection of Yoga books, MP3s, Mandalas, Neti Pots along with more Yoga accessories – with all proceeds made going straight into our Charitable Trust.
Come and join us to get more info on our retreats and stays, ask us any questions you have, enjoy a cup of chai with a bliss ball or two, browse the products, partake in a workshop or class – or just pop by to say hello.
We hope that you have a very inspiring festival and we look forward to our paths crossing soon…
