The 2018 seventh annual Mahabhuta Yoga Festival happening November 9- 11, 2018, in breath giving Pensacola, Florida at Sanders Beach is honoring the Year of the Earth Dog. We are shifting to a week earlier over the Veteran’s Day Holiday Weekend to align with our local Foo Foo Festival celebrating the Pensacola’s local arts from November 1st – 12th. A beautiful convergence is happening during our 7th year celebration.

First City Art Center (FCAC) and Mahabhuta Yoga Festival are partnering for a Hot Glass/Cold Kombucha Event on Friday, November 9th at Sanders Beach Community Center. Join us at 4 p.m. for a Sunset Yoga class with Megan Eastburn. Cool down after class with Alabama brewed local Wild Magnolia Kombucha on tap provided by Live Raw Juice Bar, poured into FCAC Hand Blown Glass cups.

Everyone will experience the amazing Friday night musical line up featuring Brooks Hubbert, Michael DeMaria, and Brynne Heatley, as well as browsing our artisan village with Belly Dancing & Acro Yoga Performances. Enjoy live glass blowing demonstrations performed on the FCAC “Little Dragon,” mobile glass blowing studio!

Hot Glass/Cold Kombucha is included in the VIP Pass, and may also be purchased as a single event supporting local artists! The FCAC hand-blown cups are included in the Hot Glass & Cold Kombucha single event ticket or VIP weekend pass.

Earth Dog energy reminds us to be loyal guardians of the earth and to respect all our relations. We are reminded to use our bark against Injustice as we team up as caretakers of our planet Earth and all that we hold sacred. Justice, sincerity, faithfulness, and honesty are the values that lead to a time of fairness and equality during Earth Dog year. We are waking up, and together rising.

The Mahabhuta Yoga Festival is a celebration honoring our Gulf Coast community where we join together our families to access the timeless expression of love. Love expresses itself at the Mahabhuta Yoga Festival through laughter, asana, dance, breath, meditation, essential oils, children, nature, song, art, bodywork, high vibrational cuisine, and community. The Mahabhuta Yoga Festival welcomes everyone to take the time to celebrate and experience the love we have to give.

We are so grateful for your support by attending the 7th annual Mahabhuta Yoga Festival. Bring friends, bring family, or just bring yourself and meet beautiful people who love yoga, dancing and eating good food as much as you do. Kids under 13 are free and welcome to attend the Galactic Child Yoga village.

This is an event highlighting the talents of regional yoga teachers, artists, healers, and musicians from the SouthEast Region. There will be yoga workshops and educational seminars on wellness over the weekend with the “Dog” room suitable for 300 people and the “Earth” room suitable for 75 people. Music is alive in a majority of our daytime workshops with Friday and Saturday evening concerts that leave everyone in bliss and refreshed for the next day of celebration. Feel the love, Share the love, Be the love. Namaste
