You can treat your tastebuds to some delicious vegan and gluten-free food (prepared with love) at the festival. Yum! You don’t have to be a vegan to enjoy the festival. Let us show you the goodness of plant-based cuisine.
You can bring your kids along and let them discover the benefits of Yoga and meditation. Children are welcome to attend Yoga classes with adults. There will also be a family Yoga class on the day. Meditation sessions might not be suitable for young children. Remember, there is no entry fee for children. We believe that all children should have access to Yoga and meditation so that they can have good mental and physical health as adults.
#Reason 4: Bollywood Dancing
This has got to be the most fun thing about our festival. Enjoy dancing to amazing Bollywood music with Kriti. This kind of dancing is so cool that anyone can join in – irrespective of ages and abilities. You don’t have to be a dancer at all! Just follow Kriti’s lead. We’re sure that you’re going to love it.
You can try the beautiful art of henna at the festival. Henna is very famous in India and other Asian countries. It is considered auspicious to apply henna designs on special occasions. Our henna artist is bringing non-toxic, safe henna, so feel free to apply it on your hands, belly, feet, wrists or any other part of your body. Don’t forget to share the pictures afterwards 🙂
#6 Kirtan: Spiritual Chanting and Music
This style of chanting is inspired from the ancient tradition of Kirtan in India and is non-denominational. It is the universal language of Spirit, the song of our Soul.
No singing or meditation experience is needed just a desire to uplift and nourish your heart and spirit using the potent vibrations of our combined voices. This session is suitable for all ages and abilities.Simply follow your Kirtan leaders.
#Reason 7: Talks
Besides attending Yoga and meditation sessions, you can also attend some very interesting talks on the subjects of veganism, wellness, mental health and Yoga at the festival. We feel that it is very important to talk about mental health publicly, so we always have talks on depression, anxiety and self-esteem at all of our festivals.
#Reason 8: Meditation Sessions
Our festival is open to all ages and abilities. If you don’t feel flexible enough to sit on floor or to do Yoga poses, you can attend meditation sessions. We’ll leave some chairs in the rooms for those who wish to sit and meditate. All meditation sessions are suitable for beginners.
#Reason 9: Gong Bath
End the festival with a relaxing sound bath run by Fiona, a beautiful Kundalini Yoga teacher. Sound Baths are one of the most soothing, body detoxing holistic rejuvenating vibrational ancient tools. The gongs produce a strong sound wave, almost tangible to the touch, which stimulates the physical body by influencing the surface of the skin and every cell. It feels like a soundmassage for the body and mind (great for those of you who like the idea of a massage, but don’t like to be touched).
#Reason 10: Access to Excellent Teachers
Teachers belonging to different backgrounds are coming together to teach at Cork Yoga and Vegan Festival. While some teachers have decades of teaching experience, some have begun their Yoga journey a few years ago. You will be able to experience the unique combination of novelty and experience at the festival. Most of the teachers will be available to chat before or after their classes. All of them are very friendly and helpful, so feel free to seek advice. Find out more about our teachers here
#Reason 11: It’s happening for first time in Cork
We have been running festivals in many other cities worldwide but this is Yogific’s first Yoga and Vegan Festival in Cork. It’s success will determine the possibility of the next festival, so please come to the festival and show your support. Our festivals are not-for-profit events aimed at raising awareness about yoga and veganism. If this festival goes well, we promise to return to Cork next year.
You can shop for beautiful handmade and unique vegan products such as skincare, beauty, household products, accessories, jewellery, clothing & accessories, and lots more from stalls . Most of the stallholders are independent traders and startups. Isn’t it fab to support small businesses!
Yes, you read that correctly. There is so much on offer at the festival but the entry is super cheap:€4 (online) and €5 (on-the-door). A single Yoga class usually costs €4 but here you get a Yoga/meditation class plus all talks, access to stalls and lots more for only €4! Isn’t that a great bargain?
So, don’t wait and book your tickets now!
