If you’re in Yamba this weekend, be prepared to feel a deep sense of calm and relaxation.

The Yamba Yoga Festival is on and an overflow of good vibrations is expected.

Festival creator, Rosie Richards, said more than 300 people were expected at the yoga festival, now in its second year.

“The Yamba Yoga Festival offers you a chance to sample a wide range of experiences with interactive workshops of different styles of yoga and mindfulness classes, that aren’t available in our daily lives,” Ms Richards said.

“We are so excited about celebrating with yogis from far and wide again this year in gorgeous Yamba, thanks to support from Clarence Valley Council.

“People love it; they can come and go from the festival, do yoga, go and have lunch, go to the beach or shopping, and then come back for more yoga.”

The two day festival will feature 35 workshops showcasing a variety of yoga styles that will have people of all ages and abilities bending, breathing, chanting, and relaxing across three rooms at the Raymond Laurie Sports Centre in Yamba.

Clarence Valley yoga instructors feature prominently in the line-up of world-class practitioners on the program, including Yuraygir Yoga, Holistictrainer, Meredith Harrison and Kathie Renee.

The Yamba Yoga Festival is supported by the Sports Tourism Partner Program, and sponsorship collaboration between Clarence Valley Council and local businesses.

Although not traditionally thought of as a ‘sport’, yoga is an ancient physical activity, that has a history broad and wide, including yoga championships held in India.

Yamba’s yoga festival is focused more on the experience side of things and will attract large numbers of visitors to the Clarence Valley, which is what the Sports Tourism Program is all about.
