Maine YogaFest 2018

East End Community School
195 North Street, Portland
The Maine YogaFest (MYF) is a wellness event was created by three friends in 2012 to bring together Maine and other New England communities to celebrate the healing powers of yoga and encourage a healthy, peaceful and compassionate way of living. The MYF is a premiere forum that provides a sense of community among yoga teachers, studios and practitioners. By raising awareness of the physical, mental and spiritual benefits of yoga, we hope to strengthen the yoga movement and culture in our beautiful State. The festival offers a diverse program allowing participants to try a wide range of yoga styles and techniques by a variety of teachers. We support the growth of the Maine economy by featuring local music, food and vendors throughout the weekend. In 2017 MYF partnered with an all-women's training group sheJAMs also founded by three friends to spread the word even further. 
Ticket prices start at $89 for a 3-workshop pass and $125 for a 5-workshop pass when registration opens and increase as the festival approaches.  Ticket price includes: three or five workshops, two Lunch & Learn Preentations open to all ticket holders, and a silent sit / meditation end of Saturday. $5 charitable donation to Sea Change Yoga and admittance to Vendor Village.  Ticket prices do NOT include service and processing fees charged by our online registration service provider, EventBrite. Fees are 2% + $0.99/per registrant + a credit card processing fee of 3% . Transportation, meals, and lodging are not included in ticket price.
See information below and on our website, including how to volunteer! Please join us for this growing, special community event.
