We have put together a list of the most popular yoga festivals and meditation retreats that may be of interest to you.
Kundalini Yoga Festival – 4 to 7th October 2019 – QLD
Yoga Day Festival – Saturday 29th June – Brisbane
Visit the Kundalini Yoga Festival to experience and see what this particular style of yoga can offer you. Kundalini Yoga is a mixture of Bhakti Yoga (chanting and devotion) and Raja Yoga (meditation / mental and physical control) and Shakti Yoga (power and energy). Kundalini’s purpose is to provide people with the tools in which they can achieve their creative potentials, free themselves from karma and discover their life purpose.
