Yoga Festival Sees Second Incarnation
After the success of last year’s “Yoga for Everyone” festival, organizers from the Costa Rican Association of Yoga Teachers (ASOYOGACR) are making it an annual event. Coinciding with World Peace Day on Sept. 21, this second festival’s message is: “No path leads to peace; the path itself is peace.”
“Yoga is a powerful tool for cultivating a deep sense of peace in every person,” says ASOYOGACR President Gerardo Chávez. “It has been scientifically proven to reduce stress and create inner calm.”
A variety of activities will be held at the National Culture Center (CENAC) in downtown San José tomorrow and Sunday, beginning at 10 a.m. and including yoga sessions for all ages and skill levels, meditation and exhibition classes of tai chi, dance and aerial acrobatics. Stalls with healthful food, eco-friendly products and yoga equipment for sale will be set up in the main hall.
The festival will end Sunday afternoon with a concert featuring national and international artists.
Free yoga classes will be offered today at Kapoli, Multispa, Estudio Namasté, Krama, Kasasana, Casa Lamat, Danza Abierta and Red GFU centers in San José; at Lung Ta in Heredia, north of the capital; at Gimnasio Grecia, west of the Central Valley; and at Ser Om Shanti in Tamarindo, on the northern Pacific coast.
