Jennifer also mentioned folks could get tickets in person at the Green Pineapple down at 1130 Duval St., for more details, please see the ads in the newspaper this week.

Schedule of events:

On Friday, April 27, 2018, the Key West Yoga and Wellness Fest launches in classic Key West style with its Kick-Off party at the Green Pineapple Wellness Center and Anahara Spa from 5:30-8:00 pm, with live soulful music, lite bites, organic beverages, and VIP access for mini-spa treatments and relaxation.

On Saturday, April 28th from 10:00 am – 8:00 pm, the Fest will host its Main Event, a full-day family celebration at the new Truman Waterfront Park Amphitheater perched on Key West Harbor. The picturesque venue provides the idyllic backdrop for a celebration of mind, body and spirit. Attendees will delight in a large variety of yoga classes and workshops for all ages, inspirational and educational speakers, organic food, a large vendor marketplace, and live music on the Main Stage. VIPs will have access to the Spa Village for mini spa treatments and the backstage party with healthy food and beverages. Children 12 and under accompanied by a parent are free at Saturday’s event and will have access to the children’s zone for yoga, meditation and movement classes, plus an interactive art experience.

On Sunday, April 29th, from 9:00 -11:00 am, the morning begins on the Great Lawn of the 24 North Hotel with an invigorating musical yoga experience taught by rock star yoga teacher “Dawn B” Feinberg of Ahana Yoga in Miami. From noon – 3:00 pm, the Fest moves to the spectacular Southernmost House for a VIP closing celebration surrounded by the shimmering waters of the Atlantic Ocean. A yoga weekend would not be complete without yoga and dancing under a full moon, so the celebration continues at the Full Moon Festival on Higgs Beach hosted by the Full Moon Experience.

“We could not think of a more perfect time to bring this unique, inspirational festival to our island paradise, to be enjoyed by both locals and guests,” said Festival co-organizer Jennifer Hulse Russo. “It has been a challenging year for the Keys, so we intend for this event to invite positive collective energy and a renewed focus on taking care of ourselves - body, mind and spirit - so that we can better share our gifts and serve others.”

With the addition of the beautiful new Amphitheater overlooking Key West Harbor, this annual event will also serve to put Key West on the map as a yoga and wellness destination, tapping into a huge and ever-expanding market of yogis and wellness-conscious individuals from all over the world. “We are planning to grow the Fest each year, bringing the most respected yoga teachers, spiritual thinkers, and incredible musical talent together, using the backdrop of our magical island to share, learn, and grow individually and as a society,” said Festival co-organizer Tracy McClellan.

“Like this Festival, yoga is for everyone at every age,” said Festival Yoga Director Gretchen Mills.
“Yoga does not require intense physical postures as typically experienced in our western idea of yoga, only a connection to the body and the breath. Yoga simply means to unite, and that is our intention for this Fest.”

A portion of the proceeds will also benefit the Children’s Yoga and Wellness Initiative, a local 501(c)3 organization whose mission is to bring yoga and wellness programs to our youth and to our school systems. “Introducing children at a young age to tools that will help them live more peaceful and balanced lives is how we can all help heal the world,” said Jennifer Hulse Russo.

The Presenting Sponsor for the Yoga and Wellness Fest is Watergen USA, an innovative company working to solve the world’s drinking water crisis by creating fresh, clean water directly from air. Watergen USA will demonstrate its cutting-edge technology at the Fest and provide healthy drinking water to its guests, without the use of disposable plastic bottles that harm our environment. Attendees are encouraged to bring refillable water bottles or to purchase reusable bottles at Festival events.

Details on Festival events and tickets are available at KeyWestYogaFest.com. For best value, attendees can purchase a VIP Festival Pass with exclusive VIP gift bag and access to all events. Advance ticket purchase is recommended, especially for VIP access, but tickets may also be purchased at the door for each event subject to availability. Monroe County residents receive a local’s discount on admission with ID. For more information, contact Jennifer Hulse Russo at 305-890-6472 or jennifer@keywestyogafest.com.

"Yes, let’s finish this off!" said local event organizer, Christi Dupre when we asked, how many tickets are sold already for the Sidewalk Prophets concert Thursday night in Tavernier. "Total sold is 500 - the PAC seats 730,'" Christi added. This looks like the place to be, everyone is excited.
