Bhakti Farms Yoga Fest returns for its third year May 19-21, 2023! Located just one hour north of New Orleans, the three-day festival welcomes the return of entertainers Sean Johnson & The Wild Lotus Band, Heather Turner, Brynnevere, Geoffrey Roniger & Swan Michelle, and for the first time, Ananda Das, Stacey Vann and Mark Berger, among other guests.
On Friday and Saturday, talented local food and beverage vendors will offer a variety of delicious, healthy food inspired by our love of Louisiana style cooking. Sunday will offer a continental breakfast and catered luncheon for weekend attendees. Limited to just 150 seatings, the luncheon is expected to sell out, so reserve your spot early!
Healing arts practitioners will offer a variety of services, including massage, reiki, sound healing, NKT, vagus nerve release, and chiropractic screening. Retail vendors will sell their holistic remedies, herbs, clothing, natural bath and beauty lotions, crafts and more. Throughout the weekend, counselors will teach yoga, and for the kids, planned activities include crafts, music and a scavenger hunt.
The festival kicks off Friday with yoga classes and live music in the afternoon, and Saturday is the biggest day, offering 10+ yoga classes, lectures, cold plunge, kettle bell workouts, and music and live art performances. Closing out the day is a concert fearing Ananda Das and Sean Johnson & The Wild Lotus Band, a bonfire, fire dancing, and a drum circle. Don't forget your drum!
The final day opens with yoga, a delicious Ayurvedic luncheon catered by Katelyn Sonnier, and a "sound bath", with over 50 crystal bowls and sound healing instruments, led by Swan Michelle.
Primitive and RV camping is available from Friday at 12 p.m. until 4 p.m. Sunday. Accommodations are simple, with well maintained portalets throughout the festival grounds and close to the camping area, water spigots for access to clean water, and a hot/cold shower in the greenhouse. Bring your bathing suit! For those seeking nearby accommodations, Land-O-Pines Campgrounds is less than two miles down the road with cabins, RVs and RV hookups.
