Helsinki Yoga and Vegan Festival
Join Helsinki’s first-ever Yoga and Vegan Festival at the popular sports hub, Unisport in Espoo. You can participate in Yoga and meditation sessions, treat your taste buds to some delicious plant-based foods, try henna body art, enjoy relaxing massages, attend talks on subjects of health and wellbeing (including mental health), and end the day with fun Bollywood dancing. There will also be free Yoga classes for children to make this a perfect family day out. Please see below to know the format of the festival.
Date : Sunday, 17 March 2019
Time : 10.00-19.00
Venue : UniSport (Helsinki, Espoo) (UniSport Otaniemi)
Fee : €4,50 (online) €5 (on-the-door). Free for children (under 14 years)
We are planning to schedule a variety of Yoga/meditation sessions at the festival. Yoga and meditation teachers from 4 countries (Netherlands, Ireland, India and the UK) are coming together to teach at the festival and give you an amazing Yogic experience. Each session will be 45-minutes-long. There is a capacity of 200 participants per session in Room A. A professional sound system and a stage will ensure that you can hear/see the teachers easily. Doing Yoga and chanting with 200 like-minded Yogis could be a divine experience in itself. Imagine, what positive vibes we will create together!
Each session is priced at only 4.50 euros (plus booking fee)
Yes, you heard that right. In Helsinki, you may or may not be able to buy a proper coffee for this much but you can surely buy a ticket to our festival. The ticket gives you unlimited access to our stall area, talks and sessions in Room C. You can stay for as long or as little as you like. If you want to attend more than one session, you are welcome to do that – you just need to buy more tickets. Everything can be booked online and you will be guaranteed a space in the class of your choice.
Please remember to arrive at least 20 minutes prior to the time of your class. The check-in desks will be open all day. For example, if your class is at 2pm, you are welcome to check-in at 10am – we will scan your e-ticket and give you paper ticket against it. You can then and hang out in the stall area, attend talks or just chill until your class starts.
We request you to bring your own mats. If you can’t bring a Yoga mat, you can bring a Yoga towel as the surface is wooden.
Please note that there is no charge to enter the stall area or to participate in talks – it’s included in your €4,50 ticket. All children below the age of 14 years will get free entry to the festival. There will be some sessions exclusively for children. Children can also attend the normal Yoga classes with adults. We just request you to not leave your children unattended at any time.
Bring Your Own
Please help us reduce waste at this festival by bringing your own box/plate/cutlery/cups. All of our food/drink stalls will offer a discount if you bring your own. All of our stalls will only use eco-friendly cutlery but it still creates waste.
We hope that you’ll support this initiative to minimise waste.
Thanks in advance 🙂
