Thousands of yogis in the US are expected to congregate in the mountains of Colorado today to attend the premiere Yoga Journal Conference in Estes Park, which will include some of the most celebrated yoga teachers in the world.
Yoga publication Yoga Journal, which has completed its 16th year, is offering more than 100 classes taught by some 35 master teachers, including Baron Baptiste, Seane Corn, Shiva Rea, David Swenson and Bo Forbes, in the Colorado Rockies for eight days, the Independent reported.
Additional Yoga Journal conferences will be held around the country in various yoga hotspots, including San Francisco (January 12-16, 2012), New York (April 12-16, 2012), and San Diego (July 12-16, 2012), with each likely to draw crowds of around four thousand.
To attend the event yogis have to pay 295 dollars for a day. A full eight-day pass costs 1,285 dollars and a weekend pass comes at 535 dollars.
The event also offers classes, workshops, and events that are free and open to the public, including a flow immersion class with famed yogi Baron Baptiste, a DJ yoga party, a kirtan concert, chanting, and a film festival and wine and cheese event sponsored by LUNA nutrition bars.
