Join Dragonfly Yoga Studio as we host our first annual Yoga Festival! This day-long collection of yoga workshops will be taught by the teachers of our 500 HR Teacher Training Program (with internationally recognized yoga teacher Rolf Gates.) All proceeds from the day will go to The Fiaria Project, a Bucks County nonprofit organization that supports local foster families.

The festival will have something for all experience levels, from Introduction to Yoga and Meditation workshops for beginners to Vinyasa workshops for more seasoned yogis. Throughout the day, there will be local vendors and a food truck set up on the lawn.

The festival will be headlined by acclaimed author and internationally-recognized yoga teacher Rolf Gates, who will be offering a Dharma Talk at the end of the evening. Entry to his talk is included when you purchase a workshop pass.

Come for a day of yoga and fun and to support a local charity…Namaste!

About The Fiaria Project

FIARIA_PROJECT_LOGO_Revision3The Fiaria Project, Inc. is a non-profit organization based in Bucks County, Pennsylvania dedicated to supporting foster families through transitions. Through the creation of “transition kits,” The Fiaria Project provides foster children with essential clothing, toiletries, and other basic items. The organization partners with area foster agencies and other organizations to distribute kits to families in need. The Fiaria Project was formed in 2016 by Dragonfly’s Joseph Simek and Alexis Ridge-Simek as a way for the couple to continue to be a part of the foster community. In 2011, the couple fostered their now adopted daughter. Their experience with the foster care system inspires them to help families who have given their homes and their hearts to foster children.
