Breathe, stretch, be mindful, savor Nantucket and Practice Yoga? Yes, please! This is why we absolutely LOVE the Nantucket Yoga Festival. This 5th annual weekend is filled with ways to be more present and to get in tune with your mind, body and soul, while connecting with an amazing group of instructors, motivational speakers, incredible vendors and a network of super cool yogis. So here, we have the six things you need to know for #ACKyogafest!

1. FOUR tents in 2016!

Yes, for the first time, the festival hosted at Bartlett’s Farm will have four tents separate from one another! After four years of sharing one large space, the team at the Yoga Fest decided to spread out the love with one tent dedicated to vendors and two other tents specifically for classes. #ACKyogafest says… “This will reduce crossover sound and make the weekend a truly transformative one. As a result class space is limited please register for your classes when you purchase your pass to reserve your space.”


2. Incredible Instructor Lineup!
