Welcome to the website of the IYN Yoga festival…

This will be the Independent Yoga Network’s 8th annual festival, a wonderful not-for-profit event which celebrates freedom and diversity in Yoga.
For more about the IYN – go to: independent yoga network

The event includes yoga classes and workshops for everyone, from the quiet and meditative to the vital and dynamic, given by IYN member teachers from across the UK.

In 2017 the festival moves to West Lexham – a beautiful 21 acre manor estate set in a tranquil protected valley in central Norfolk. As well as ambient workshop spaces filled with natural materials, there’s some seriously fun and funky accommodation on offer, heated swimming pool, formal gardens, water meadows and lakes to explore. The whole place has an atmosphere that is perfect for the festival and we can’t wait to see you there!

Accommodation options range from camping and glamping, to luxury ensuite rooms. Ticket prices include chosen accommodation, all meals (mainly vegan and gluten free) from Thursday dinner to Sunday lunch, drinks throughout, all and any workshops or classes that you wish to attend.

Come and relax with us, meet new friends and old, share practice and build community.

The dates for your diary are 1-4 June 2017.

O what stories this fire could tell
Of drums, dancing and singing as well
Celebrations that began before first light
A beacon of love and laughter in the night

Inevitable suspended,
ineffable noise
Coalesced as stillness in perfect poise.

The embers now flicker with a distant glow
Releasing the memories as they let go...

Into beautiful darkness
