The sixth annual Kincardine Yoga Festival took place over the weekend and saw a crowd of about 150.
Three classes took place on the north pier, with a healthy snack provided by Watercress Bistro after the Friday evening sunset yoga and light refreshments provided by The Daily Grind after the morning classes. A refreshing jump off the pier was optional after classes.
“We are delighted to be in our sixth year of the annual Kincardine Yoga festival,” said Eric Cunliffe of Shatki Rhythm. “We love pairing our beautiful local scenery with mindfulness practices and to celebrate and support local charities and organizations. This year felt extra special as we did not have any limitations due to Covid, had incredible weather and record turnout for class participants. We believe it is important to celebrate a healthy body, healthy mind and to savour the incredible beauty of our coastline and natural world.”
“We had great attendance, about 50 per class,” said Darrel Perry of Penetangear. “Great attendance, great weather, great donations… It made for a great weekend.”
100% of the donations made through the event were donated to Community Living Kincardine and District. The total raised was $2,695.50.
The Yoga Festival is hosted by Shakti Rhythm Yoga and Penetangear Clothing.
