Over the last few weeks we've been sharing our excitement over all the incredible offerings that compose our favourite hometown community gathering, Bloom Festival 2017. Perhaps you were inspired by a book you devoured, drawn to the rich musical component of the festival, intrigued by one of the many amazing speakers and learning opportunities, and the stacked line-up of teachers bringing their juiciest practices. Bloom is for everyone, bursting with world-class inspiration. Check out our top picks for practice this year; we're wishing we could be everywhere at once but we're extra excited to roll out our mats at the following classes:

“We are beyond excited to share with you the Bloom Festival 2017 Line Up . This is going to be a transformative life experience.”

Balance In Space - Find Your Roots with Ryan Leier

Friday October 6, 2017 9:00am - 10:30am

Balancing postures demand our full, wakeful attention, the mind needs to be quiet to focus on the task at hand; or we fall over! That's why these poses can instill a deep sense of calm even though they require intense, unwavering alertness. Learn the secrets of standing, arm and hand balancing. In this playful workshop Ryan shares techniques to properly ground and center in order to fly high!  

Passionate and inspirational, Ryan Leier brings a creative energy to every class he teaches; whether in his own One Yoga studios or as an ambassador of yoga to communities around the world. We can't wait to have him back in the city and sharing his heart's work. 

Spiritual Graffiti: Finding Your True Path with MC YOGI

Friday October 6, 2017 1:00pm - 2:00pm

MC YOGI always brings an amazing vibe and spirit to the Bloom community and we are so excited to have him back on the line-up this year. 

Join hip hop artist, yoga teacher, and author MC YOGI and his wife and renowned graffiti artist, 10,000 Buddhas, for an uplifting and inspiring practice filled with insights and stories from their own journey of finding yoga, love, and leading a purpose-filled and creative life. 

This is a session that will be geared to the inner city youth that we are inviting to the festival; Bloom has invited 500-600 kids from 4 different Junior High Schools in the city to attend. This is a teaser class for the Spiritual Graffiti Class happening the next day. 

Navigating The Edge with Danielle Murray and Erica Dee

Saturday October 7, 2017 10:00am - 11:30am

Danielle Murray is an Alberta yoga veteran and instructor at Empowered Yoga. You can catch her at Yogalife Studios, freshly moved from Whitecourt! Her Bloom workshop is set to the musical stylings of Erica Dee who offers playful melodies over energetic rhythms with a magnetic presence.

In this 2 hour workshop we will learn to navigate the edge. The edge is an uncomfortable and scary place to be.  As adults we tend to avoid experiences and situations that put us in a vulnerable position. This workshop provides us the opportunity to get comfortable with being uncomfortable at the edge. Yes, we may fall down, we may stumble, we may fail. That is how the greatest lessons are learned. We may also find courage, strength, resilience, acceptance, understanding and even JOY. 

We are so excited to connect with our community in this deep, immersive experience of yoga. See you on your mat!
