A: Yoga festivals are the best time. You create a schedule of different yoga/fitness classes and workshops that you want to try and meet new friends along the way. You get to enjoy time in nature, swim, hike, shop, eat and relax. The point of the yoga festival is to have you connect with yourself and the community around you and gain an appreciation for nature by interacting intimately with it. Muskoka Yoga Festival encourages you to ARRIVE and be present in nature, engage in community and immerse yourself in all kinds of practices for your body and mind.
If you purchased a weekend pass for MYF you will have access to the site for the whole weekend. This includes all workshops (except for a handful of workshops like SUP Yoga that require pre-registration), the 6K and 10K Forest Run on Saturday morning, camping, live music, ecstatic dance, and the opportunity to immerse yourself in our beautiful community to create everlasting friendships! You can purchase tickets HERE.
Absolutely not! This festival is an amazing opportunity to explore yoga whether it’s your first or five-hundredth time taking a class. We’re also offering way more than yoga. We have different workshops planned on meditation, dance, pilates, fitness, sound healing, advocacy, mental health, and MORE. Our schedule will be popping up online in May so stay tuned!
A: Yes, all are welcome! This is a family friendly event. Kids 10 and under can attend the festival for free! We may offer kid yoga (depending on number of sign ups) but we will not offer child minding. There will be one 19+ area where children will not be permitted, but other than, we are a family friendly event!
A: We’ve designed the weekend for you to have an epic time! There will be a vendor market on for the whole weekend and yummy vegetarian food available all weekend long as well. On Saturday and Sunday we will have designated time to enjoy lunch with the community where no workshops will take place. There will be a 19+ tent with some great local alcohol sponsors to enjoy drinks throughout the afternoon and evening if desired.
A: On Friday night we’ll have a silent disco and campfire jam sessions and on Saturday night we’ll have an ecstatic dance and live concert with more campfire jam sessions afterwards.

You will only be allowed to put up a tent in the camping area as no trailers or automobiles will be allowed in the camping space.

A: We are a vegetarian festival and will be providing a variety of yummy and healthy food options over the course of the weekend. We have several food vendors and are looking at also offering a ‘MYF Food Pass’ which can be purchased in advance so people can buy all of their food beforehand. Guests are allowed to bring their own food, however, we kindly ask people not to bring meat on to the campgrounds. There will be no cooking facilities provided and all food brought in must be properly secured at night time.
