About the Festival

Our Mission is Love

We believe that yoga, mindfulness and music are tools for raising the vibration of love in our body, breath and brain as well as our community and in the world.

The Newtown Yoga Festival was formed as a holistic solution for anyone and everyone through the transformative wisdom and practice of yoga.  It is our way to honor lives lost, celebrate the strength and resilience of human-kind and offer healing with a compassionate practice and conversation on peace.

The festival has been designed to promote positive well-being, health and community.  Yoga, by promoting movement and mindfulness, has been proven effective in reducing stress and depression and is a valuable mechanism for coping with physical and emotional trauma.  The Newtown Yoga Festival honors this ideal.

Please join us for a heart-opening, vibration-raising experience that will revive your spirit, enrich your practice and activate the power of love in your life.

Our History

All Volunteer Organization
The Newtown Yoga Festival was formed with the intention of being a healing presence for Newtown and the surrounding communities affected by the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in 2012. Because of the outpouring of support, we shared various yoga tools and techniques with more than 500 participants and donated nearly $14,000 to the Sandy Hook community.
