Evolve is coming back to Byron Bay on Saturday January 11 at the Byron Bay Public School. On offer this year is an inspiring line-up of over 60 teachers and artists in yoga, wellness and music sharing their wisdom and art. The Evolve Yoga Festival is a celebration of all things yoga with a smorgasbord of workshops, classes and talks on a range of yoga forms, meditation, wellness, chanting and dance.

The packed program of over 60 sessions across eight rooms caters for all levels of yogis – even first timers. For the first time at Evolve, we have a fantastic music program all day under our very own majestic Bodhi tree, and a new night concert in our Sarasvati-inspired Temple (which is sometimes called the school hall). The festival also features a marketplace, a range of healing therapists offering their services, delicious vegetarian food and talks to engage the mind, body and spirit.

Local yoga teachers and artists join with others from around Australia and the globe at this inspired event. There are also sessions for the kids, with free entry for children under 12.
