OM'ERICA - The Yogafest

OM'ERICA - The Yogafest

  • August 4, 2018

    In the Green Space beside Hot Asana Southern Pines

    Since the inception of American Yogi last year, our community has grown thousands strong. We span across the nation and across the globe. We are Soldiers, veterans, paramedics, mechanics, teachers, mothers, and fathers. We are fighters. We are seekers of peace.

    And for the first time, we can practice together.

    Join us August 4th at the Sunrise Theater green space in downtown Southern Pines, NC for Om’erica: The Yoga Fest. A day of yoga that represents our roots—the military veteran.

    The day will highlight veteran-owned businesses, vendors, and organizations and include three outdoor classes taught by certified yoga instructors who are also vets.

    The proceeds of the event will benefit the community on two fronts. First, the money raised will send one veteran through 200-hour yoga teacher training through Hot Asana Yoga University. Additionally, a portion of the proceeds will go directly to The Exalted Warrior Foundation, a 503(c) nonprofit that facilitates adaptive yoga instruction for wounded warriors across the country.

    Price of entry gets you admission to three classes as well as access to vendors and raffles from Combat Flip Flops, Hot Asana, and more!

    Bring your mat, a towel, and favorite yoga buddies for a morning of peace and community.

    And as always, American Yogi merch will be available for purchase, including a limited-edition shirt designed especially for the event!

    Click the link on our profile for tickets. Admission will be available for purchase on site, but due to limited capacity of the outdoor space, we recommend you book early to ensure a spot!"

    Limited spaces available. Reserve Your Spot Here!
