The second annual Restorative Arts and Yoga Festival (RAY) will be taking place from June 1-3, 2018. RAY will feature a three day program of health and wellness workshops designed for yogis of all abilities. The retreat is hosted at Granlibakken Tahoe, as a part of their Sierra Soul Series of Wellness Events. Granlibakken Tahoe is a retreat center, resort, and conference center located in the heart of a 74 acre wooded valley, just steps from Tahoe City and Lake Tahoe. Instructors for RAY are all based out of the Truckee/Tahoe region, creating a vibrant festival that highlights Tahoe’s thriving wellness community.
Early-bird discounted pricing is available for RAY 2018. The full weekend of events—three days of workshops, meals, and social hours, is just $276 when booked prior to February 28. On March 1, the price goes up to $289 for the weekend. Classes and workshops can also be purchased individually. Discounted lodging at Granlibakken Tahoe is also available—allowing for an immersive weekend of well-being in the Sierras.
Final Schedule Released:
The final schedule for RAY has been released. Building off of the schedule for the 2017 event, RAY 2018 will feature more social hours, two additional interactive group performances—drumming and aerial flow arts, and an all-new Shakti Space. The Shakti Space is designed to be a creative space, where attendees are invited to partake in activities independently of an instructor, or to simply relax in the midst of the festival.
New Speakeasy sessions will offer informal sessions between workshops, where attendees can gather to discuss a topic or create something that they can take home with them—whether it be a written mantra or a relaxation technique. The expanded Vendor Fair on Saturday will also give attendees the opportunity to purchase local goods and services—from jewelry to massage sessions.
The schedule for RAY includes daily workshops, with three tracks of classes. Workshops are designed for yogis and health practitioners of all abilities. The workshops feature a wide range of topics—from Acroyoga to Yin Restorative Yoga. The popular shinrin-yoku forest-bathing meditative hike will be offered again, as well as Kundalini Yoga and Sound Healing meditation. The RAY program is designed to complement the natural surroundings of Granlibakken Tahoe. The indoor and outdoor workshops and social hours pay homage to the mountain valley that the resort is nestled in.
