One-day yoga festival in Alcova will raise funds for homeless healthcare and suicide prevention
CASPER, Wyo.– The third annual Casper Karma Yoga Festival will be held Saturday, July 9 at the Casper Boat Club. This year, all proceeds will be donated to the Natrona County Suicide Prevention Task Force, as well as Casper’s Health Care for the Homeless Clinic.
The festival will open with a group meditation at 8 a.m., then feature yoga classes taught by eight different instructors from the Casper area. One class offered will be Stand Up Paddleboard yoga, which will take place on the lake atop 10-foot paddle boards. “Because the platform is unstable in the water, you engage your core more for better balance,” the class description on the site said.
Other classes offered include Shakti-lini, Subtle Body Yoga, Sound Bath and The Joy of Being Alive.
Vendors will also be present on the site, offering various products and services. After the opening meditation, classes will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., with a break for lunch at noon.
The festival returns after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic. It started in 2018 as a graduation project organized by teachers who were completing their training and was a huge success.
“The intention behind the Casper Karma Yoga Festival is to promote a positive connection with our community,” its website said. “Each year the festival will donate all proceeds to a different local service or charity; creating a wave of positive karma that continues to serve others along the way.
