Bali Spirit Festival: A Global Celebration of Yoga, Dance & Music

Bali Spirit Festival: Save the Date! March 31st – April 5th, 2015

A truly global event, the annual Bali Spirit Festival, Southeast Asia’s premier yoga, dance, and world music celebration, will open its gates to the international community once again from March 31st to April 5th, 2015. Now in its 8th year, this spiritually charged event attracts nearly 6,000 visitors over 5 days to Ubud, Bali, to celebrate the synergy of global cultural collaboration through the sacred arts: from yoga, healing, and meditation to diverse, creative expressions of music and creative movement.

Named one of the “Top Yoga Festivals Around the Globe” (Yahoo News), Bali Spirit Festival features over 150 daytime workshops set in the stunning, tropical surroundings of Bali, led by dozens of top international instructors, inspirational speakers, and holistic healers such as Simon Park (USA), Janet Stone (USA), Michiko Minegishi (Japan), Nadine McNeil (Jamaica), Ronan Tang (China) and many more.

Ranked among “Asia’s Top 6 Music Festivals” (Travel Wire), the Bali Spirit Festival’s nighttime festivities include a “Bhakti Series” of devotional music, as well as “One World One Stage” line-up of world class acts who encourage conscious living and well-being for individuals, communities, and the planet. The Festival also celebrates the lush beauty and creativity of its island home with performances of traditional Balinese performing arts.

The entire family is warmly welcome, and “Hari Cinta Keluarga” (We Love Family Day) honours our youngest festival-goers with special classes and creative activities for children. A vibrant “Dharma Fair” offers a range of deliciously wholesome fare and wares by socially and eco-conscious vendors.

Pass-holders can relish the beautiful surroundings of Bali and the excitement of this global gathering knowing that their participation supports the Bali Spirit Festival’s “Karma” initiatives. The Festival’s founders are committed to giving back to the local community and have raised more than $75,000 for local charities and outreach programs for Balinese performing arts, HIV & AIDS education, and reforestation in Bali.

Passes are on sale now, and deep discounts are available to Early Birds.

I know I have not written in a month. Which is a shame because I have had so many things to write about such as the yoga studio, Deep Art and Yoga, that I managed and taught at closing it’s doors and the space, along with me, taken on by Yoga Shala.
