History of Brighton Yoga

Brighton Yoga Foundation aims to trace the history of yoga in Brighton and Hove through some of the main lineages in this city. We have chosen to look at Iyengar yoga, the Scaravelli-Inspired approach, Ashtanga and this year there will be a presentation about the Brighton Buddhist Centre's contribution to Brighton's Yoga history.

Previous Brighton Yoga Festivals

2021

Online Event

25 July. A difficult year. We planned a hybrid event - live and in person on 24 July and online on 25 July. But at short notice a huge spike in Covid cases locally caused the cancellation of the live event. We live streamed 13 workshops with teachers from around the world and the UK and a discussion on the future of yoga post-pandemic. 

2020

Online Event

25th & 26th July. With the pandemic in full flow, we had no alternative but to take the 2020 Festival online. At relatively short notice we presented 4 top quality teachers from around the world and the UK to teach online workshops and also hosted a panel on “Black Lives Matter – diversity within the yoga community”. More than 300 people attended the sessions.
