Two Harbors to host yoga, music, more
In order to see some of your favorite musicians this weekend, you might first want to commit to folding yourself into a downward dog.
Boreal Bliss Yoga Fest, which starts at 9 a.m. Saturday at 1924 Town Rd., Two Harbors, is a day of live music, workshops, meditation and yoga. Admission is $45 for a morning family pass — which includes one adult and one child, $5 per additional child and $65 for a full day pass at borealblissyogareatreats.com.
Juice Pharm will be available, selling juices for a one-day cleanse and MD/Shamanic healer/life coach Sarah Seidelmann — whose “The Book of Beasties: Your A to Z Guide to Illuminating Wisdom of Spirit Animals” is now available — will offer workshops. Local musicians Sarah Krueger, Superior Siren, Sonja Bjordal and Marti and Katie Ryan will perform.
Also: flower crowns and henna.
“It’s an event to celebrate these people who we all know and love and have a day together for community, health and wellness,” said one of three founders, Amanda Imes, who also has Superior Paddle.
Boreal Yoga Retreats — which includes Bryana Cook of Northern Namaste Yoga and Joella Miller of Jem Yoga & Massage — did a similar event a few years ago to raise money for the Duluth Winter Village, Imes said, but then put it on hold.
Last year, during the Silver Creek International Ukulele Carnival, Imes said she saw a venue perfect for a yoga retreat — Silver Creek Pavilion, which has a weather-protected shed with garage doors and screens. It was an ideal outdoor-but-indoor space, Imes said.
The day starts with family yoga, followed by crafting for kids and self-compassion yoga for caregivers, led by Miriam Hanson with music by Krueger, and ends with a dance party with Superior Siren.
In between: meditation, journaling, a variety of yoga styles and workshops on juicing, essential oils, chakras, and finding illumination in nature.
