About Us

Enjoy a weekend of yoga, music events, natural health talks, community activities and a Sustainable Health & Living Expo at Ekam Yoga Festival. We are moving to a fantastic new location this year, just south of Port Macquarie.

Join us at Francis Retreat, Bonny Hills on 2 & 3 September 2017. Learn, be inspired, connect, relax, deepen your experience of yoga.

Choose from a great range ticketing options and accommodation packages.

Saturday, 2 September will be a family-friendly day. Bring your kids of all ages to enjoy the many free activities in the grounds or let your school-age kids attend the programmed classes with you for free.

We’re opening the festival to the community this year by offering free classes, talks and activities in the grounds throughout the weekend. Come and have a chat to natural health professionals, enjoy the products and services of the Natural Health & Living Expo, participate in free taster yoga classes, try the free mini-treatments in the Vibrance Health marquee, learn more about the local Gathang language and connect to the land with local Aboriginal woman Rhonda Anjikurri at the red tent or just enjoy the wonderful festival atmosphere.

 

Ekam is a word from the ancient Indian language Sanskrit. It is a beautiful language, which carries meaning not only through words but also the vibration of sound.

Ekam means “one”.

It is a fitting name for a festival that brings teachers and students of different traditions together to learn and share with respect for each other’s experience and knowledge.

We may practice different postures or the same postures differently. We may focus on meditation, pranayama (breathing) or asana (postures). We may be a beginner or an accomplished practitioner. We may understand yoga to be something that makes our bodies feel good or see it as a deep spiritual practice. At Ekam we come together as one.

Ekam Yoga Festival is organized by Random Acts of Yoga, a not-for-profit organisation based in Port Macquarie, which aims to improve the local community’s wellbeing through yoga. This is a not-for-profit event.
