8th Love Your Body Yoga Festival photoblog recap

The 8th Annual Love Your Body Yoga Festival in Reston was a great success with thousands of visitors on a sunny, breezy Sunday afternoon. We hope to profile some of the vendors and organizations involved in the coming months and offer this photoblog to capture some scenes from the day.

Every hour featured a different yoga class on the pavilion in the heart of Reston Town Center.

The Kidasana tent was hopping all day with 25-minute classes after which children could pick pick a t-shirt, bubbles or a copy of The Five Fingered Family retold by Radiant Child Yoga founder Shakta Kaur Khalsa.

The tent was sponsored by Heart and Soul Yoga, Radiant Child Yoga, Creating Conscious Contact, and Whole Foods Reston. Next door, children were able to make crafts and write positive messages & affirmations decorating a 4-foot LED-lit potted tree that will then go to a Cornerstones facility.
