Smiths Falls’ Brand-New Yoga FestivalRISEat the Falls - theHumm June 2019
Unleash your inner yogi at a brand-new yoga festival in a town that’s on the rise — beautiful Smiths Falls. On Saturday, June 15, grab your mat, water bottle and a positive attitude and head for one of the fastest-growing communities in Eastern Ontario to take part in a one-of-a-kind event celebrating healthy lifestyles and the practice of yoga for all ages — the RISE Yoga and Wellness Festival.
The first of its kind in the Ottawa Valley, RISE is a free, fun, family-friendly and educational event running from 9:30am to 3:30pm in Centennial Park in Smiths Falls. Situated alongside the historic Rideau Canal, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the setting couldn’t be more inspirational for doing yoga outdoors. Spread your mat and bask in the sunshine and beautiful scenery while experimenting with or expanding your yoga practice.
Upward dog, downward dog… all the dogs will be on-site during this fun and interactive event! Visitors will find a number of activities to keep inspired, all day long. Three yoga classes will take place on the main lawn, and six workshops will unfold throughout the day, focused on varying topics like SUP yoga, Acroyoga, Oov mobility, barefoot mobility, and mobility tools.
When you need a break from all your yoga you can relax in the community tea tent, or wander through the on-site product vendors to see what’s new in the health and wellness industry. After working up an appetite you won’t need to go far to enjoy some delicious and nutritious goodies; food and drink vendors will be on-site to complete the health and wellness experience.
Perfect for participants of all ages and abilities, newbies or experienced yogis, the RISE Yoga and Wellness Festival is a one-of-a-kind experience for anyone interested in health and wellness. Families will love the child- and family-friendly classes, the interactive children’s area, and a two-kilometre children’s run that will get the day started on the right foot.
The festival is the culmination of more than six months of planning, and was inspired by an already existing health and wellness focus in Smiths Falls, with the intent of drawing visitors from farther afield to come and celebrate everything the town has to offer.
Connect, grow, and love yoga — and yourself — at the RISE Yoga and Wellness Festival! For more information, visit riseyogafest.ca .
