Four-day and three-day, Thursday immersion passes and specialty class tickets are available:

For the second year, the festival has created a centralized downtown campus at the Telluride High School with indoor and outdoor venues, along with hosting vendors, sponsors, and free community events.

The Shanti Marketplace, open to the public, will feature over 30 vendors and sponsors selling everything from clothing to jewelry to art and food to sample.

Participants are welcome to gether in the community tent to eat and relax as it also hosts daily community workshops, musical acts and wisdom talks.

Friday and Saturday night festivities include live music and kirtan, sunset yoga classes at the top of the Gondola, along with indoor dance parties at the top of the gondola to end the day.

“We are dedicated to creating a festival that not only offers incredible yoga and wellness experiences, but also incorporates the spirit of Telluride and gets participants out into nature, whether that is climbing the Via Ferrata, biking Penelope’s Cruise, doing SUP yoga on Elk’s Lake, or hiking along the San Miguel River,” says Henschel.
