First-Ever Kootenay Spirit Festival Includes Impressive Lineup

When organizers of the Kootenay Spirit Festival set out to create this first-ever event, they considered other similar festivals, picked out what they thought was most evocative of the Kootenays, refined it, and began to invite teachers to come.

What ensued from that is a lineup of yoga teachers that have committed to the Kootenay Spirit Festival and will knock your socks off (literally) as they inspire you and help you engage more fully in your journey to health and wellness.

Breathe. Relax. Stretch.

The lineup includes our own Mary-Jo Fetterly, one of the original founders of the first yoga studio in Nelson, Shanti Yoga. She will be back in Nelson to teach a class on Tantra Yoga. You can learn more about Mary-Jo Fetterly in her own blog post introducing the festival here, but in short form, Mary-Jo survived a ski accident in 2004 that left her paralyzed from the neck down. That this injury has not held her back from continuing to teach yoga is, alone, an inspiration. But her spirit runs deeper than that and to be taught by her is something many local people consider a gift. If you are unfamiliar with Mary-Jo’s teaching, rest assured that you will not be disappointed. And those who are familiar already know: the fact that she will be teaching this weekend is a rare treat. Do not miss her sessions.

Other out-of-town guest teachers will arrive from across North America:

Along with these out-of-town guests, many beloved local teachers of yoga, meditation and dance will also offer workshops.

You’ll have the chance to learn mindfulness, party dance, mantra and the art of self care. The range is diverse: Whether you are an experienced yogi or brand new, there is something for everyone, so check it out and we hope to see you there!
