Event description
As the Banff Yoga Festival turns 5, we pay homage to all of the relationships, collaborations, and people we have met along the way!

About this Event

We can't believe it has been 5 years, already!

Who We Are:

We are the Banff Yoga Festival; a wellness event centered around yoga and mountain activities. We tap into our beautiful location, and its wellness resources, to curate a weekend of magic, transformation and information! Practice with local "greats" as well as international and regional special guests in one of the most beautiful places in the world.

What To Expect:

Practice and learn from wellness professionals who are "Walking the Talk" in our wellness world. Practice yoga, lots of yoga. Or not. Classes and workshops can range from powerful classes and pose-specific workshops, to complete a total relaxation classes, to making chocolate and listening to music. Be surrounded by the Canadian Rockies in a valley that has deep roots in healing. Attend Mountain Meditations, stand up paddle classes, walks and more in the outdoors. Eat and even prepare nourishing ayurvedic dishes, create art, journal, get a facial... there is something for everyone!

Aren't A Yogi?

No problem. You could attend our festival, with a FULL day without doing a single yoga pose. The Banff Yoga Festival is so much more than a yoga festival. We use the concept of YOGA to highlight what it is meant to do. "Yoga" refers to Unity which can be achieved via mindfulness. We us Mindfulness as inspiration to find classes that can address this approach to all areas in life. For example, we've addressed the realities of indulgence and created a "Yin & Vin" classes and "Raw Chocolate Making" in an attempt to get us thinking about our health & wellbeing in a whole and realistic way.

Regardless if you are a yoga beginner or a yoga teacher, there is something for you!

Our 5th Birthday & Our Theme:

For our 5th birthday we have chosen to highlighting the theme of polarities. Positives & Negatives, Dark & Light, Yin & Yang, East & West, Right & Left... Polarities addresses the opposites in our world. It attempts to recognize the need for each end of the spectrum and how you can live peacefully in a polar world.

We felt this theme was not only relevant in our day to day life, but in our world today. It even affects our communities. Banff, being a National Park is also considered a tourism mecca. Our National Park status aims to preserve the environment and wildlife activity, but its growth and popularity also requires it to accommodate this. We hope that with connection to the natural world and highlighting our mountain culture, we can encourage the preservation of our national park while also encouraging sustainable development. We hope our local focus helps to highlight the uniqueness of this place and in doing so highlights the uniqueness of yours!

Hotel Packages:

We have put together packages with Banff Lodging Company. They are a locally owned company that own several great hotels in town. They have offered us the best deals. We've then paired hotel rooms with our tickets. You must select the amount of tickets that you want with the package. The price you see refers to PER PERSON and some packages have a minimum number of people for the package.

Best Value:

Our Best Value is the Premium Ticket which gives you access to some of our premium classes for a discount vs. purchasing the add ons separately.

The Standard Weekend Ticket is the best value and works out to less than 20 dollars per session hour when used for all three days. Even if used for 2/3 days it is still a of higher value then purchasing our day pass.

The Day Pass is still a great deal, and provides you with full day access to all standard classes, which make up the majority of our schedule.

The Packages are the greatest deal as we have kept our ticket prices in their pre sale prices to encourage you to book your hotel early!
