6th Yoga Arava Festival

In the beginning of November, the floor of the Arava Desert will become the mats for the Sixth Yoga Arava Festival, the biggest yoga meeting in Israel.  Throughout the weekend, the villages of the Arava will host deep yoga workshops with the best teachers in Israel and special guest teachers from abroad, and participants will be embraced by the exhilarating desert landscape. The main event, The Night of Unity, takes place on Friday night with a sunset yoga practice at the foot of Solomon’s Pillars in the Timna National Park, an experience accompanied by live music and followed by a communal vegetarian dinner.


For one weekend, the entire Arava will become a center for yoga. Practice areas with the best teachers from various streams will be placed throughout the Arava, from Moshav Idan in the north to Kibbutz Elifaz in the south, about 200 km apart. The breathtaking ancient scenery, the sense of wilderness all around, the meticulous desert hospitality and the variety of accommodation styles creates a wonderful place for yoga practice.


The are many styles of yoga available this year, among them are Iyengar, Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Vijnana, Shivananda, Vinny Yoga, Anusara, Dharma Yoga, Kundalini Yoga, Power Yoga, Yoga and the Ayurveda feminine, funky Yoga, Acro Yoga, and a special workshop for teachers of Yoga, exploring the relationship between practice and teaching. Yoga workshops will be held throughout the weekend. The workshops are open to everyone, beginners and advanced alike.


Overnight accommodations are varied and many. Each community in the Arava offers a selection of accommodation, from camping to luxurious B & B's with homemade breakfasts. Visitors from overseas can expand their trip to a full week of yoga and sightseeing.


The event is a joint production of the Eilot Regional Council and Middle Arava Regional Council, with the support of Merage Foundation – fulfilling dreams in the Negev, the Negev Development Authority, the Jewish Agency, and Partnership 2000. Yoga Arava is held in partnership with the Israel Yoga Teacher Association.
