Finding Abundance at Lightning in a Bottle
April 5, 2016
At YOGASCAPES, we’re all about exploring experiences that connect us deeper to ourselves. Through yoga, food, music, community, and travel, we tap into that – we notice what lights us up, what resonates and what feeds our soul. That’s why when we’re not on retreat, we like to stay connected to epic events to dance like crazy, eat delicious food, learn and connect. This year, we’re stoked to go back to Lightning in a Bottle – one of our top Summer Festival picks! Here’s why:
YOGA & NOURISHMENT
Lean into the heat this summer and build your inner fire on the mat at the Temple of Consciousness. Classes will feature several fun instructors and musicians, including a class with the Earth Harp (what? yes please!). We’re huge fans of making time to practice and move in our bodies amidst the abundance of music and offerings at festivals. It’s a great way to find new teachers and explore other styles you might not have known before. Make sure to bring water and a towel to class to keep it cool in the flow and take a refreshing shower at The Oasis! Don’t miss the healing sanctuary for bodywork and the Ecstatic Dance sets at the Temple as well and check out these 5 tips to nourish yourself at LIB.
