Yoga Festival 28 July - 5 August 2009

More than 1500 people from as many as 20 different countries come together for 8 days on the grounds of a country estate in the Loire Valley in France, to practice Kundalini Yoga, White Tantra Yoga and other activities related to the teachings of Yogi Bhajan. Each year the Festival highlights a specific aspect of Yoga, but it also provides special attention to newcomers who have little or no experience of Yoga practice.

This years Theme: "Mastery of the subtle body"

Yogi Bhajan says about this:

“It is the subtle beauty which attracts wealth and prosperity. It is the subtle beauty which is always in you till death. When that starts flowing, then God starts working for you. Do you understand that?

If today you have decided that you are not happy, remember you are not relating to your own subtle self. Spiritual communication and spiritual strength all over the world will only relate to you if you relay the message through your subtle self, because subtle self has a common center of knowledge and activity. That’s why the soul leaves the physical body inside the subtle body." (Yogi Bhajan)
