With a growing reputation as an international hub of yoga, the Byron Shire will strut its sleeping swan and parade its peacock this weekend at the Evolve Festival.

Held at the Byron Public School, over sixty renowned presenters, markets, and food and music will inspire the yogic within.

Along with asana classes (physical postures) with leading teachers such as John Ogilvie, Alexa Nehter and Simon Borg-Olivier, there are sessions in philosophy, wellness, meditation and pranayama plus music, dance gatherings and kids’ sessions.
