Move, Breathe, Connect And Create At Colorado’s 2017 Premier Yoga Festival

by Jessie Lucier

There is something to be said about a practice that has not only survived, but also thrived for more than 5,000 years. Of course, I’m talking about yoga. While the journey, development, alteration and movement of the practice have been as varied and nuanced as any individual practitioner’s over the centuries, the basic intent of yoga remains steadfast. Yoga encourages us to go deeper—to tap into the true energy, essence and creativity that is us. In the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, considered by many to be the authoritative text on yoga, Patanjali describes yoga as “the progressive quieting of the fluctuations of the mind.” Through the practice and the cultivation of detachment, Patanjali believes that one can stop identifying with the thoughts, feelings and sensations that cause pain and open up to the truly authentic and blissful experience that is life.

Amidst the Boulder creek rushing by, the, the high vibes of Boulder in the spring, and the community of yogis that gather from all around the country, is one of my favorite springtime weekends – the Hanuman Festival.

Polarity Vanquished - The Hanuman Experience

Wednesday, June 15, 2016

by Kaci Yoh

Jai Hanuman! During this microcosm outside of the daily news, polarity disappears and unity abounds. United, we represent our unique physical expressions and collectively raise the vibration. We work our bodies and spirits to the beats of live music in indoor and outdoor studios on the Boulder High School Campus. I find myself challenged physically to contort into various peak poses across several classes, but the thing I find the most surprising is my resistance and then acceptance to chant, mantra, and ecstatic dance.

Unity In Community at Hanuman 2016

Furthering the Union of Yoga through Practicing Together

There is something special that we each find on our mat everyday. Whether it’s laughter, tears, acceptance, compassion, tranquility, safety or empowerment, there’s a reason that we return to the practice day after day. There’s also a reason that so many of us choose to attend group classes and festivals and practice in community rather than alone. Energetically, when yogis fill a space together with intention, collective movement, focus and love, positive vibrations increase, friendships are formed, new ideas surface and community is built.

How to stay grounded and present throughout the festival experience 

By Jessie Lucier

With so many great teachers and classes to choose from, the physical strain that hours of asana can create on the body and the excitement of festival energy, it’s easy to get swept away mentally, emotionally and even spiritually into the experience. Even for the most dedicated, mindful yogi, it can often be difficult to process what comes up internally when it’s competing with so much external stimulation. The good news is that there are ways—even within the movement, music and collective mantra of the festival—to make your event a mindful one.
