9 days until the Vegas Gone Yoga! Festival

Nine days from now, on Sunday, Sept. 22, the inaugural Vegas Gone Yoga! Festival will take place at the Springs Preserve. Beginning at 8 a.m., non-stop classes will be held in two rooms and the amphitheater simultaneously until 6 p.m. The price is a mere $50 for an all-day pass or $20 for one workshop. And the bonus is that the event is being held at the Springs Preserve, the site of the original springs responsible for the settlement of the Las Vegas Valley, a very special place.

The Las Vegas yoga scene is lucky that two years ago Kris Blunt, the festival organizer, moved to Vegas when her husband was transferred from New York to work in the Lion King. Upon her arrival, Kris set off on a search for a studio. She eventually landed at Yoga Sanctuary where she presently teaches. But along the way she noticed something.

“From the get go I thought it was just a very interesting dynamic amongst the yoga studios. I understand it’s a business and can be competitive, but we don’t really do anything together and I feel like the definition of yoga is union,” said Kris.

A yoga festival, she thought, that’s what we need.

“That was the seed for the festival. Something to sort of bridge that gap. Just a day’s event where we have fun, invite all the different studios.”

Kris put some ideas on paper, approached some investors and, thanks to her hard work, the Las Vegas yoga community is uniting. There will be classes representing a variety of styles, some to live music, some indoors and some outdoors. Food will be available at the Springs Preserve Cafe.

The Vegas Gone Yoga! Festival will not only be a day of fun, community and connection, it will also present the opportunity to explore different styles of yoga and get familiar with new teachers.

“We tend to go to that yoga studio that is closest to our home or closest to our work and we don’t really venture beyond that,” said Kris. The festival is an opportunity to get to know that teacher that you’ve heard great things about but teaches way over on the other side of town.

Also, don’t forget to bring your walking shoes so you can explore the trails and exhibits of the Preserve.
