Belize set to host first International Yoga Festival
Yoga in Belize
Yoga enthusiasts are in for a thrill as a first of its kind International Yoga Festival is set to be held in Belize City, Belize at the Harbor View Greens to bring in the New Year.
The Yoga Festival will begin at 6:00 a.m. on December 31 and will finish at midnight bringing in the New Year on a positive note.
The festival is designed to bring together yoga and meditation practitioners, aspirants and the general public to enjoy soulful moments of wellness, healing, relaxation and reflection in order to promote more positive interactions that are vitally important for the well-being of our communities and country.
The all day event will include adult and children yoga classes, therapies, wellness information, food and drink. The signature event will be a yoga workshop and a night concert by internationally renowned musical star, MC YOGI whose Hip-Hop music not only introduces yoga to mainstream audiences, but also promotes peace, love and harmonious relationships. Through all his concerts MC YOGI, who is also an ambassador for First Lady Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” initiative, has demonstrated that he is an excellent electrifying performer.
It is being organized by Rhythm of Change, (ROC) Om Shanti Belize, a secular, non-profit organization dedicated to promoting and implementing activities that bring forth individual, social and environmental changes. The group uses innovative approaches to peace building including yoga, meditation, environmental consciousness and other forms of wellness.
The event is being used as a fund-raiser for ROC to continue its work in the country. A chartered boat will be available for those attending from San Pedro and Caye Caulker. Interested persons can visit www.omshantibelize.com for more information and ticket prices.
