Stockholm Yoga & Dance Festival
For the sixth year we invite you to a weekend filled with warmth, community, various forms of yoga, meditations, dance and many interesting lectures. Teachers and artists from around the world are here to share their passion!
“Dive with us into the depth of yoga and dance”.
The festival is held at the Balett Academy in central Stockholm, inviting a unique meeting between the urban, rural, Swedish and multicultural world. We want to reconcile people, city with country, Sweden with the world, Yoga with Dance, and invite to the perspective that everything is a whole and you are a part of it.
The festival’s intention is to offer the participant a wide breadth and deepening of everything that yoga, dance and meditation mean; a giant task that takes new directions and shapes every year.
This year’s festival clearly shows the trend that the therapeutic feature is great both in yoga and dance form. We use yoga and dance as therapeutic tools to process the trauma, understand ourselves and others and develop as humans far beyond the idea of yoga or dancing for to only become more mobile and stronger physically. We have among others with us Katrina Menchikova, who is dance therapeupt from Moscow. We have Swedish Josefin Wikström known for her commitment to Prison Yoga. We have the Englishman Mark Walsh with his new yoga method Embodied Yoga Principles and we have Anna Duberg who lectures on her research project around dance and yoga for teenage girls, to name a few.
We also invite you to meetings between yoga, dance and meditation where the boundaries between the genres are finally erased, where we find concepts such as Anakulana and Freemove.
In addition, the entire festival is open on Friday night with a thrilling and amazing show with artists, DJs and several exciting presenters.
With a big heart we wish you all welcome ♥
