Gift yourself a one-of-a-kind experience with yogis, musicians and speakers at Drishti Beats Festival 2023. Nestled in the Colorado mountains of Snowmass Village, this three-day yoga and music festival is sure to engage all your senses.
Explore the symbiotic relationship between yoga, music and nature July 7-9, 2023. “The serenity of nature, the rhythm of music, and
the mindfulness of yoga come together to create a multi-dimensional experience that nurtures the mind, body, and spirit, fostering a deeper connection to oneself and the world around us,” says festival director Lori Lowell.
“The connection of movement to music takes one to a higher level of consciousness, [and] therefore serves as the theme of the Drishti Beats Yoga and Music Festival,” she adds. Drishti Beats Festival will leave you feeling refreshed and reconnected to yourself, your community, and the natural world. Every element of the festival is designed to ignite a sense of unity.
The yoga and music lineups are curated with great intention. Lowell explains, “We, Drishti Beats, have traveled the world playing and teaching at some of the largest music festivals. We have spent the last 10 years focusing on music, sounds, frequency and vibrations to heighten our Drishti Beats Yoga class experience and have studied this. Through this process we have been able to connect with teachers and music artists who truly understand what it takes to create a heightened experience.”
The Snowmass Village location adds to the euphoric vibe of the event. With perfect summer weather and the beautiful scenery of the surrounding landscape, Snowmass is an idyllic place to rediscover that sense of connection and freedom that yoga and music so uniquely set in motion. With a myriad of accommodations from hotels to Airbnb’s, rest and rejuvenation is ensured.
Drishti Beats Festival offers yoga and music simultaneously all day long, which differentiates the event from other festivals that only offer some music experiences. During the day, festival goers can expect a robust lineup of options, ranging from different styles of yoga including vinyasa, yin, acro, slow flow, inversions, ecstatic dance and blindfolded yoga, to mindful focus and hoola-hoop sessions. Another highlight of Drishti Beats Festival is the opportunity to indulge in nourishing and delicious food from vendors and surrounding restaurants.
The Drishti Talks portion of the festival brings in fascinating speakers who cover an array of topics to color your thinking. The
diverse array of offerings caters to the varied interests and preferences of participants, allowing them to explore and discover new practices and deepen their yoga journey. Beyond the physical aspects of yoga and the rhythm of music, this festival also offers opportunities for self-reflection, mindfulness and connection with nature. From hikes to meditation and sound healing, participants can immerse themselves in the beauty of the outdoors, allowing for a deeper connection with the natural world and a sense of grounding and presence.
With a full and vibrant music lineup, participants can not only enjoy yoga during the day but also dance the night away to popular house and tempo chilled music and a variety of ear candy to move our participants in a different way that heightens and enhances their overall experience. This unique combination of yoga and music provides a holistic experience for the senses, elevating the festival to a new level of celebration and connection. In addition, many of the music artists accompany the yoga teachers during the day which heightens the experience even more.
“By maintaining the essence of what has worked in the past while also exploring and enriching [our] offerings, we have struck a balance between familiarity and innovation,” Lowell shares. “This attention to detail and commitment to excellence ensures that the festival continues to offer a memorable and transformative experience for all who attend.”
Pick your adventure — enjoy one day or all three, just the music, just the yoga or all of the offerings. Within the atmosphere created by gifted musicians and teachers, your time at Drishti Beats Festival will expand your senses and deepen your appreciation of the symbiotic relationship between yoga, music and nature.
