Celebrating Wellness in the Kootenays

"The Kootenay Yoga Festival would like to acknowledge that we live and work on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of Sinixt Peoples. We make this acknowledgment to show our respect for the təmxʷulaʔxʷ (homeland), and Sinixt Nation. It is a privilege to be here and we are mindful of how we carry ourselves today, to demonstrate our intentions to honour this land, water, and all beings. With much gratitude to call this place home, we invite those reading this to explore their own relationship with this beautiful land.”


The Experience

The Kootenay Yoga Festival is a boutique yoga, wellness & art festival. This weekend of unity will bring together people of all ages in the West Kootenays to celebrate our mutual love & respect for yoga, holistic healing, creativity and nature.

Behind The Scene

The Kootenay region has been a hub for many years in regard to alternative healing modalities. In the larger towns of Nelson, Castlegar and Trail alone, there are already many successful yoga & fitness studios, day spas, dispensaries, green businesses, healthy restaurants & alternative medicine clinics, not to mention hundreds of private practitioners who offer a variety of healing services. Our intention is to build a strong & loving bridge between our surrounding communities & local businesses as a way to connect & provide access to all who wish to explore mindful living. This all-ages weekend festival will offer all who attend an opportunity to dip their toes into an array of classes & workshops (such as yoga, dance, breathwork, meditation, sound bathing and more), educational talks & more. KYF will be hosted in-person at the Vallican Whole located in Slocan Valley this year. During these times of intensity in our world, we see that more folks are in need of connection & purpose along with education to support optimal physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. We believe that this festival will bring more health, happiness and abundance to our local communities.
