Open Hearts Yoga and Arts 3rd Annual OHYA Festival
August 24, 11-8pm Branford Green
FREE offering to the community!
Yoga & Meditation Classes, Wellness Classes, Kids Tent with Art Projects, Yoga and Scavenger Hunts. Artist Vending all day, LIVE Music, Vegetarian Food Trucks & Great Vibes!!
The Branford Green transforms for one day into a healing, raising consciousness space for the people. Yoga and art classes for kids and grown ups alike. Spend the day browsing the art tents, get some henna, a massage and enjoy LIVE local music all day.
World renowned musician WAH! will perform as DJ Mata to close out the festival Saturday Night. Her DJ set is hypnotic and fun, fusing mantra and visual art with ambient beats to create a spacious experience of dance, movement or stillness and being.
The OHYA Festival was born out of the creative energy from Ravi Singh’s Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training back in 2017. Since then the Love Tribe Center and Raven’s Wing Yoga has continued it’s efforts for an annual Yoga Festival in Branford that also supports those in need. All proceeds after operation of the festival will go to the Branford Counseling Center & the Community Dining Room.
Donations and sponsorships, as well as vendors are still welcome. Contact Sally at Raven’s Wing at email@example.com or 203.488.9642 for details.
