How to Pack for a Yoga Festival

’tis the season for festivals!!! summer is the time for road trips to music and yoga festivals, but what do you pack?? you don’t want to bring too much, but you also want to have fun, look great, and feel prepared to relax and enjoy the the amazing event. I’ve been traveling all day en route to Nantucket for their yoga festival this weekend, and I wrote up this list while in the car. I was a passenger, not driving of course.

And I have some news… I’m taking over the festival’s Instagram account on Sunday!!! follow along to see what I’m up to and experience the beauty of Nantucket. now, time to pack!

the obvious.

gotta have your yoga mat! lightweight is a MUST. you’ll be carrying it around from workshop to workshop, so your thick home practice mat may not be the best.

Manduka makes a travel mat that is lighter and more portable, I’ve added it below. In addition to a mat, you’ll want a bag or strap to throw over your shoulder and leave you hands free to take photos, grab lunch and explore everything the festival has to offer.
