Awakened Life Yoga Retreat April 12-14 at Gulf State Park
A space for renewal, play, singing, dancing & contemplation
Registration is still open for the April 12-14 Awakened Life Yoga Festival, a 3-day gathering along the shores of Lake Shelby at Gulf State Park in Gulf Shores featuring yoga, meditation, music, paddle boarding, vendors and a plethora of educational workshops.
Ticket options include weekend passes with camping ($225), weekend passes ($175) and one day. For more sponsorship or event information or to purchase tickets, visit AwakenedLifeYogaFestival.com, facebook or call (251) 943-1812. All classes are for all levels.
The 4th annual event is the brainchild of local yoga instructor Jen Hammonds of Roots To Wellness Inc. as a way to bring locals and visitors together to connect with like minded souls.
“Yoga is more than physical poses,’’ Hammonds said. “It’s singing and dancing. It’s being in nature. It’s about making connections and relaxing. We want to incorporate all of its elements and practices. And it’s life enhancing getting to be around and getting to know all these good people that show up.’’
Presenters include fitness motivators, yoga teachers, artists, life coaches and spiritual counselors. Many presenters come just for the joy that is sharing knowledge with others.
