This year camping and accommodations are NOT available, so please adjust your plans. Make sure to bring any necessary items to make your stay fun and relaxing.

Can I bring my pet?

This is one of our most popular Yoga FAQs at Big Bear Yoga Festival! We love our pets too, but sorry! ABSOLUTELY no pets whatsoever (except service animals). “All Service Animals must wear visible Service Animal ID at all times, such as a vest or harness. Service Animals must accompany their guardian at all times and cannot be left alone outside, in tents, dorms, etc. If you need special assistance with your Service Animal, please contact us in advance.” We love animals, but they should stay home where they are safe.

How far is the festival from Big Bear or other amenities?

The festival location is about 5 minutes away from Big Bear Lake and Big Bear City. We love Big Bear, so make sure you take time to check it out too! Lots of shopping, great hikes and don’t miss the lake! Grocery stores, restaurants, banks and hotels are just a short drive.

Do I need to bring water?

Water is available for purchase from vendors, and there are water fountains too.

Are children welcome?

YES! Children are welcome! We do NOT provide child care, please plan accordingly.

Who should come to the festival? What about people new to yoga?

Everyone is welcome! Anyone new to yoga is especially welcome – we have beginning, easy and introductory classes just for you! This is a wonderful opportunity to explore and try something new! More experienced students will also have a wide range of classes to pick from, and an opportunity to deepen your practice. Bring an open mind!

What is not free? Can I make a donation?
