Brighton Yoga & Well-Being Festival
Brighton Yoga & Well-Being Festival - what you can expect
Our aim is to trace the history of yoga in Brighton and Hove through some of the main lineages, including Iyengar, Scaravelli-Inspired, Ashtanga and this year Brighton Buddhist Centre.
Previous Brighton Yoga Festivals
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.
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.
BHASVIC - Brighton & Hove.
27th & 28th July. Over 2,500 people attended the Festival at BHASVIC college, braving the rain on the first day. The event featured almost 100 classes, a world first survivor-led Panel on Sexual Abuse in the Yoga Community, and a celebratory coming together of the yoga community and Extinction Rebellion.
