namaste festival 2011
we'ar is heading to jakarta this weekend for namaste festival - a three day event of yoga, health and well-being which is drawing an international crowd of practitioners as well as local indonesian yoga and healing masters.
guest teachers include simon borg-olivier from yoga synergy in sydney, jivamukti teacher jules febre as well as a host of international teaching ranging from yin to martial arts based yoga.
we'ar excited to be a part of bringing awareness to the importance of yoga in a place where healing is a large part of the culture and also to place jakarta on the map of international yoga and health. The founders of namaste festival believe that yoga, healing, and well-being are practices much needed by the city of Jakarta and its people. namaste bhakti is a charity program through which 50% of the festival profits will be donated to various charity organizations throughout indonesia - and since the we'ar culture and philosophy is born from yogic principles and fair trade ventures in bali, to be be involved is very special indeed!
designer jyoti and some of our bali crew will be there representing we'ar in all its luscious glory - our fine fabrics and designs will be on showcase and for the taking, so if you are lucky enough to be attending make sure to swing by and say hello!
the team will also be out and about making some sweet treats for the website on life and yoga in bali, chatting to some of the teachers and giving all of you a look into the sights and sounds of the festval... so watch this space...
we'ar will also be live tweeting from the event as well as posting photos as it unfolds. we can't wait to hear all about it back here in nz!
