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. Ekam Yoga Festival is held annually at Francis Retreat. You will love the beautiful grounds, gigantic gum trees and great yoga spaces. In 2019 we welcome back some of our much-loved presenters from previous years, such as Eve Gryzbowski and Amelia Disspain. This year’s program has, yet again, the variety and depth of offerings that the Ekam community loves. Check out the amazing line-up here.
Join us at Francis Retreat, Bonny Hills on 14 & 15 September 2019 for a fantastic yoga experience.
Ekam brings together yoga teachers, musicians and alternative health professionals from across NSW and beyond for a weekend that aims to provide opportunity for yoga practitioners of all levels of experience to come together to learn, be inspired, connect, relax, and deepen your experience of yoga.
Yoga teachers will be able to expand their skills in one of the professional development sessions.
Choose from a great range of ticketing options and accommodation packages.
Throughout the weekend we invite the broader community to enjoy free activities in the grounds. Bring your kids, family & friends to participate in free taster yoga classes, talks and activities. Come and have a chat to natural health professionals, browse through the products and services of the Natural Health & Living Expo or enjoy a massage and some fantastic food in the grounds. On Saturday, 14 September community activities will focus on families with children. Children can join kids yoga, acrobatics and other activities in the grounds.
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 organised 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.
