Summer is upon us, and festival season is definitely in full swing. Those of you hard-core yogis/festival junkies are probably well aware of the physical and mental endurance required for a 2, 3, and sometimes even 4 day festival (yoga, music, art, or otherwise). With all the dancing, walking, headbanging, and cartwheeling, these events, while fun, can leave us feeling depleted. If we do not properly care for ourselves during such long and intense weekends (and in general for that matter), we run the risk of overexertion, dehydration, and place excessive stress on our minds and bodies.
Thankfully, yoga and mindfulness are something that we can take with us anywhere, even the hot, dry, dusty playa. Speaking from the experience of a seasoned yogi and festival-goer, there are definitely a few practices that are helpful to incorporate into one’s festival experience that serve to support your body and mind through an intense and exciting weekend.
So, read on for Drishti's 4 Tips for the Mindful Festival Goer! :)
