Ahimsa Yoga and Music Festival

Oct 02, 2016 12:17AM

Now in its fourth year, The Ahimsa Yoga & Music Festival, held November 4-6, will have a new locale at Hunter Mountain ski resort in New York’s Catskill Mountains. The festival has expanded its programming of yoga, meditation and sacred music to a full weekend this year. The festival, a collaborative effort with Radio Woodstock Live Events (a division of Radio Woodstock in Woodstock, New York), offers inclusive packages for on-site lodging, locally sourced gourmet meals, music, yoga classes and workshops for all levels.

There will be 70 curated workshops and classes taught by more than 40 experienced teachers, including headline teachers Faith Hunter, Alanna Kaivalya, Charles Matkin, Sara DiVello and Mary Dana Abbott. Kirtan and sacred music recording artists Jai Uttal, Donna De Lory and Gaura Vani will be featured throughout the weekend as well. Ahimsa’s real spirit is in incorporating as much live music to each workshop and class as possible.

From studio, one, two and three-bedroom suites to executive and penthouse suites, accommodations offer amenities such as a full kitchen, fireplace, daily housekeeping, concierge services, valet parking and a bell service. Ahimsa also features 10 different music performances and the Vendor Village, where participants may learn and shop for new yoga and health-related products and services.

Weekend, one-day and music only passes are available. For registration and the full teacher and music line-up, visit
