Apply to share your light and gifts at YogaFest 2017
YogaFest, a festival co-created from the heart of seva, also known as karma yoga or selfless service, seeks to bring together the local talent of our ever-growing yoga community. Everyone involved with YogaFest, including organizers and presenters, give freely in this spirit of service, and therefore presenters are not paid.

- Two meals per day (Thur.-Sun.)
- Your name(s), picture and information listed in our Event Guide and Website
- Networking with gifted practitioners from across Michigan and beyond
- Opportunity to reach new students and collaborate with other talented facilitators
- A full immersion and essential function in co-creating a uniquely transformative and utterly joyful experience

What are we looking for? We warmly welcome you to contact us if you have any questions!
Mission Alignment: We are looking for presenters who are interested in leading participants through an exploration of what it really means to unite as a community and symbiotically serve a greater purpose and one another. Selfless service is at the heart of YogaFest and we want to lead by example of how the living practice of yoga can enrich our lives and those around us!
Yoga and Meditation: Our schedule seeks to expose attendees to the many varieties and expressions of yoga asana and meditation, allowing new comers to discover practices that works for them.
Kirtan/Devotional Music: Chanting, singing and dancing to the Divine name helps bring everyone together to direct our collective energy toward a deeper reason of gathering at YogaFest.
Education: Lecture based sessions where participants can learn about pertinent topics like the branches of yoga, conscious health, techniques for communicating more compassionately or methods for living more sustainably.
Family Oriented: Workshops that are suitable for yogis of all ages, as well as activities specifically geared toward engaging our young ones in conscious expanding experiences.
Community Oriented: From ceremonies to silent walks, we are looking to thoughtfully sprinkle in activities that can engage a large number of the festival participants, bringing everyone together.
