The Kootenay Spirit Festival is humming along this weekend in Nelson. The first time festival has over 20 workshops celebrating yoga, dance, meditation and music led by top local and visiting teachers, speakers and musical acts across town.
Yoga classes, whether they be active or restorative self care, are accompanied with skilled instructors who are there to inspire participants to expand their mind and body through the spirit.
A day or weekend pass gives entry to participants, plus there is a free event this afternoon at Lakeside Park. Join the free yoga jam from 3:30- 4:30 p.m., followed by kirtan with musicians John de Kadt, Sparrow Grace and conscious roots and soul with Buckman Coe.
Sunday’s workshops continue at the Prestige Lakeside Resort, including the Spirit Market Place from 9 a.m to 3 pm. For more information visit kootenayspiritfestival.ca.
