Book your Late Bird Special NOW (limited tickets)

There is incredible power when we come together with shared intention. At the 2017 International Yoga Festival we are gathering together for transformation, for a “Revolution of the Heart”, where we are making space for evolution by connecting to the source in a deep way. This is possible when we become Yoga. Yoga teachers from around the world have been selected for their ability to create space where we can experience Yoga as an evolutionary way of life, as ecstatic aliveness, as radical freedom beyond the boundaries of our conditioning.

New Zealand’s 6th Annual International Yoga Festival, located on Kawai Purapura’s beautiful 19-acre native bush on the outskirts of Auckland, will be a full weekend of yoga and wellness immersion for all ages.

This festival presents an opportunity to transcend our sense of separate self and evolve together into deeper inspiration and creativity, a pure field of potentiality where we reclaim our Divinity and open up to new perspectives. The moment we transcend, we are touched by something profound. This moment can change us forever!

Make space for Evolution
Connect to the Source in a deep way
Surrender to Grace
Find your Heart.

The visitors of our Yoga Festival can select from 100 inspiring workshops, classes & wisdom talks – hearing, meeting and practicing with world-class teachers, both local and international. These workshops and classes cover the full range of yogic practices, from silent and mindful meditations right through to dance-yoga, aerial-yoga and paddleboard yoga.

Each full day of seminars and workshops ends with a joyous musical celebration!
