1. Yogapalooza is Social Entrepreneurship
Doing good for the world, doing good for the community and strengthening families is what we are all about. Yogapalooza is the biggest FREE family friendly outdoor Yoga event in Canada. Our joy is to share the gift of Yoga and raise the consciousness of the world at the same time.
2. Support The Community
Check out the Community Tent and meet with community agencies using Yoga and Meditation to bring about world peace. We love what they do and know you will generously support their initiatives.
3. Visit the Wholesome Marketplace
We have great vendors – including YogaFit, Utopia
and Giddy yoyo
. Our sponsors believe in what we do. Check out their booths and give them a high five for their vision, amazing products and services.
4. Free Yoga, Dance and Martial Arts
New to the practice? Been at it for lifetimes? Explore Kundalini Yoga, Hatha Yoga and Laughter Yoga – All ages, shapes and sizes are welcome. Yoga is for everyone and our line up of teachers will introduce you to the beauty of the practice. This year we also feature Nia and Belly Dance. Join Martha and Auni for expressive movement. Drop in for a class or two or stay for the whole day. New this year is mixed martial art with our favorite dude, Jason from DRGN Athletica. The value of this experience is more than money can express.
5. Kids Space
Look out for our brand new kids space. We believe in a world where joy and consciousness are available to all. We believe in a world where it is accessible to the youngest members of our tribe. Bring your little Yogis out for two full days of programming especially for them. Share storytelling, meditation, and dance with teachers who love your kids as much as you do.
6. Volunteers Rock!
Every teacher on stage, every person who hands you a button or helps direct you to the right spot has donated their time and energy to make this event come to life. Isn’t it amazing what love manifests?
