It’s almost that time of year again. That cozy, magical, heart-opening time of year when many in our Kundalini family hear the call and head towards southern California - to celebrate yoga and sacred chant - Sat Nam Fest style.
Whether you’ve been to Sat Nam Fest many times or you find yourself getting ready to experience the festival for the first time, there is an infectious excitement in the air. Sat Nam Fest offers the perfect Kundalini gathering spot, with something for everyone. From joining together in a vigorous yoga class to blissing out at an all night gong journey, you’ll definitely feel the joy and the love.
Here are some of the happenings at Sat Nam Fest that we love the most:
The sacred sound current of Sat Nam Fest is (in our humble opinion) literally the energetic base holding up the entire festival experience. From morning Aquarian Sadhana to live music offered at classes to evening concerts, you can’t go far without experiencing some of the most joyful music sacred chant has to offer. Some of Sat Nam Fest’s musicians this year include Mirabai Ceiba, Guru Ganesha Band, Aykanna, Nirinjan Kaur, Sirgun Kaur and many more! Learn more here.
Sat Nam Fest brings together some of the most experienced and insightful teachers from the Kundalini Yoga world. There have been so many times we’ve traveled home from Sat Nam Fest with renewed inspiration for our practice, due to the EPIC nuggets of wisdom these teachers bring.
A few highlights from this year include:

The food at Sat Nam Fest is always consciously and lovingly prepared. We always feel that the high vibration of the festival is in perfect alignment with the high vibration of the food. The menu is vegetarian, with vegan and gluten free options available. There’s also a juicing program and pure foods “bar,” offering simple clean foods such as steamed vegetables, quinoa, millet or brown rice for those wanting a cleansing diet at the festival.
