3HO European Yoga Festival in Chateau Anand, France is probably one of our favourite festivals to exhibit at! So this is always an exciting time of year for us! If you’re unaware of this style of yoga; Kundalini is a combination of Yogic techniques based on the teachings of Yogi Bhajan that are very accessible – you do not have to be as flexible as a rubber band! Anyone can practice this style, no matter their age or fitness level. Another factor is the flow of Kundalini energy. Kundalini teaches that this energy already exists within us. It also teaches the yogic techniques to practice to draw this energy throughout the body. By doing this they can attune themselves to a universal, shared consciousness.
So what is the European Yoga Festival about? Yoga, of course! But it has many things most yoga festivals do not! For one, it’s long! 8 whole days of festivities and intense, 8 hour sessions of elating meditation, chanting, and energy channeling. These can have people leaving from the venue glowing from the inside! Imagine seas of happy Yogis dressed in bright white in the beautiful sunshine of the French countryside, while music and positive energy dances in the air! And, like a yoga retreat or extended workshop, the festival has a special diet designed to enhance your experience. As anyone who’s been on a retreat knows, these lifestyle Yogis know how to cook! It also has an evening market where we exhibit our clothing and equipment, with warm nights and a celebratory atmosphere!
It’s big, it’s bright, and it’s global… teachers and workshops from all over the world… a chance to connect with like-minded people from thousands of miles away, with the glorious French Chateau Anand and forests surrounding you… it all sounds so romantic, right? It is! What a place to be, and what a way to fill your time with joy in the summer?
