A yoga festival debuts at the original site of Woodstock


Bethel WoodsPeace, love, and yoga, baby.

Bethel Woods Center for the Arts is hosting the first annual Live Well, Be Well yoga festival on September 12 at the original site of the famous 1969 Woodstock music one. Bring your tie-dye yoga pants.

“Yoga has a significant history at our site,” CEO Darlene Fedun says. “Woodstock’s opening ceremony was performed by Sri Swami Satchidananda (the founder of Integral yoga), and yoga instructor Tom Law soothed the crowd of nearly 500,000 with on-stage exercise in-between music sets.”

The music history at Bethel Woods in Sullivan County is preserved by a Woodstock museum, and it’s still a popular spot for classic artists like Bob Dylan, Neil Young, and Jackson Browne, as well as newer musicians like Zac Brown Band.

For the yoga festival, members of Satchidananda’s ashram will perform Live Well, Be Well’s opening ceremony, and Tom Law will host a lecture. Other highlights include a master class with yogi headliner Gwen Lawrence, a music set by DJ HyFi, Kundalini, Acroyoga, children’s yoga, gentle yoga, and more.

“We truly believe that yoga belongs at our site, and we hope to see the festival unite more and more people through peace and wellness each year,” Fedun adds. Rock on. —Jamie McKillop
