This 2-day yoga festival has it all: a great community spirit, a fantastic range of yoga classes, music events, health education, community activities and a Natural Health & Living Expo. We will be back at Francis Retreat, after falling in love with the beautiful grounds, gigantic gum trees and great yoga spaces in 2017. There will be additional session spaces, more presenters and a greater variety of classes yet again! Check out the amazing line-up here.

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.
