For yoga fanatics, the smell of warm tea and the sound of meditative music was a fitting combination for this year’s yoga festival, which taught participants how to unite the power of the body and mind.
The Lakehead University played host to the 4th Superior Yoga Festival, an event that featured numerous yoga styles demonstrated by yogis and instructors.
Aside from yoga, this year’s festival featured other demonstrations such as drumming, the Brazilian martial art capoeira, and a whole lot more. But aside from giving the community a chance to work up a sweat and have some clean fun, the festival was also organized for a cause, with its proceeds donated to the Thunder Bay Regional Health Science Centre for cancer research.
Thunder Bay resident Genevieve Berbube-Hayward started yoga roughly a decade ago, and she was one of the many participants at the festival who came to try out the different types of yoga being demonstrated. Yoga for her was a more effective way of staying in shape, one that didn’t require strenuous and tiring workouts.
Indeed, the festival was a smashing success, and yoga enthusiasts in the city can’t wait for next year’s event, and the chance to meet more people who share their interest in yoga.
