Bringing together exceptional teachers of yoga, meditation and mindfulness from Banff and beyond, together we will create a conscious connection to yoga, culture and adventure in the heart of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Come together to study all things yoga, and connect to our unique culture.
Welcome to the Rocky Mountains – one of Canada’s most popular destinations with a long time history of healing. Immerse yourself in this 3-day festival of conscious celebration where we incorporate the mindfulness of yoga into all elements of our lives. From yoga classes to hiking adventures, to cultural and social interaction, you’ll leave feeling refreshed and renewed mind body and soul.
Wake up to the sun peeking over the mountains as you soak it in over a cup of tea. Head to a yoga class at the state of the Fenlands Recreation Centre to connect to the community and transformational teachings. A short hike up Tunnel Mountain gets your blood pumping and your creativity stirring. And the calm of a canoe on the Bow River mirrors your peaceful state of mind. Infuse intention into your handmade mala in the afternoon. Then connect with new friends at an acro yoga workshop and end your day with an all-out celebration of community featuring an impeccably curated list of wellness teachers and artists from Banff and beyond.

Aren’t A Yogi?
No problem. You could attend our festival, with a FULL day without doing a single yoga pose. The Banff Yoga Festival is so much more than a yoga festival. We use the concept of YOGA to highlight what it is meant to do. “Yoga” refers to Unity which can be achieved via mindfulness. We us Mindfulness as inspiration to find classes that can address this approach to all areas in life. For example, we’ve addressed the realities of indulgence and created a “Yin & Vin” classes and “Raw Chocolate Making” in an attempt to get us thinking about our health & wellbeing in a whole and realistic way.
Regardless if you are a yoga beginner or a yoga teacher, there is something for you!
